Video: Bathroom odours can be traumatising whether you caused it or not. Products like Poo-Pourri can help keep the stench at bay, but you can easily make your own smell-be-gone spray at home.
In this video from the HouseholdHacker YouTube channel you'll learn how to make your own pre-poop spray with essential oils and few other things you probably have lying around your home. Mix 3/4 of a cup of water with 2 teaspoons of rubbing alcohol, 2 teaspoons of hand or dish soap, and mix it all together with 40 to 50 drops of your preferred essential oil (lavender, peppermint, eucalyptus, etc). Then put in a spray bottle to keep near your porcelain throne. Just like with Poo-Pourri and One Drop, you add the spray to the water before you go. By the time you flush, there will be no nose-worthy evidence of the business you just took care of. You can even add food colouring to the spray so you can see the smell barrier and get some extra peace of mind.
