This Homemade Poo Pourri Like Spray recipe is amazing, and the key to neutralizing bathroom stink no matter where you are and have to go No. 2. Because you know...we all want to keep potty business private, right?
Y'all remember that episode of Oprah where she and Dr. Oz talked about well...poop? Gah...I can't believe I even typed that word. But, we are going to take a minute and just talk about it. While it is something everybody does, it's not necessarily something that you want to share with the rest of the world, right? So here's the thing...we all have to go, and sometimes we have to go right away, no matter where we are. But, we don't actually want to share the smell, ya know? I've heard about this crazy stuff called Poo Pourri for the past couple of years, and I've even seen it in some specialty stores, but I had no idea how it works. The world definitely doesn't need one more odor masker. The good news is that Poo Pourri Like Spray works differently, and it actually does work!

Read on for the photos and how to use Poo Pourri Like Spray!
Add 1 teaspoon of isopropyl alcohol, 15 drops of Peppermint Essential Oil and 15 drops of Lemongrass Essential Oil to your spray bottle. Now fill the rest of the bottle with distilled water. Distilled water helps to prolong the shelf life of homemade cleaners and concoctions.
Now...on to how to use your homemade poo pourri like spray. The trick is to spray this stuff into your toilet bowl, directly into the water BEFORE you go. Spray it 5 times, right into the water. The oil and alcohol create an oil barrier on top of the water to trap any "poo" under it! This traps the odors underneath the oil barrier so they don't come out of the toilet and into the air. Woo to the hoo...no tell-tell No. 2 smell! Just flush the toilet, and no one will be the wiser!
I keep a bottle of Poo Pourri Like Spray in each of our bathrooms and one in my purse just in case too! Now, let's just conclude the potty talk shall we?
