Ladies, our poop is always supposed to smell like sunshine and flowers, right? And then we go into the bathroom and five minutes later it smells like a goat has been slaughtered. I mean seriously. There are times when the smells that come out of your bum makes the port-a-john at the end of the chili cook-off seem like amateur hour. If you are in love with the hilarious commercials for Poo-Pourri, I’m sharing an easy poop-pourri DIY you can make yourself!
Mars. Venus. Poop.
Men walk into the bathroom with the newspaper. They take selfies with their accomplishments. And they high five each other in the men’s room.
Women have this culture that pooping is taboo. Like we are supposed to pretend we don’t do it. And it doesn’t stink!
So you gotta go, right? You walk into the ladies room and pray that it’s empty. WHEW! You walk to the last stall as far away from the door as possible. In the middle of dropping and plopping, the door opens. UGH! So you hold your breath and pray that the woman doesn’t pick the stall close to you. Please go quickly… please go quickly…
Because you know that when you are THAT lady who walks into the bathroom and you notice the silent feet in the far stall, you know the deal. Tinkle quickly and get out of there as quickly as possible so this unknown woman can get back to her business.
Or God forbid the woman who doesn’t know the bathroom code. She not only takes her time tinkling, but she uses the mirror right outside of your stall to put on her makeup and do her hair. Come on lady! I can’t sit here for 20 minutes!
If you haven’t seen the commercials for Poo-Pourri, they are HILARIOUS! You know when you pull up a YouTube video, and those six seconds of ads until “skip ad” do not go by fast enough? I will sit through a 2-3 minute commercial of Poo-Pourri and laugh until I wet my pants. If you haven’t seen them yet, get emotionally prepared to laugh. Hard.
I love the story behind this product! It’s one woman’s failure of a life turned into a business success all because of stinky poo. By all means, I encourage you to buy it and try it! It’s made in the USA. (the lady in the commercial is an actress, not the owner.) It’s not animal tested. It’s biodegradable. And it is free from harsh chemicals, parabens or phthalates. And, according to their FAQ, it also works on farts and floaters! This woman inventor named Suzy certainly deserves every single dollar she’s earned!
BUT… if your preference is to make this spray on your own, its super easy to do! And shhhhh…. don’t tell anyone… it’s like CRAZY amounts cheaper to make too! The original costs around $9.00 for a two ounce bottle and you can make your own for only cents to a bottle!
1 tsp Rubbing alcohol (or witch hazel)
8-10 drops Essential Oils
One drop all-natural dish detergent
I like using the 2oz bottles, but you can use any size spray bottle. When using essential oils, always be sure to use glass and not plastic.
Psst… want easy to follow instructions on how to make all of your favorite household cleaners… the all-natural way? It’s eezy peezy! Click below…
First, pour the rubbing alcohol into the bottle. For a larger bottle, use 1 TBSP instead of 1 tsp. Then add 8-10 drops (total) of your favorite essential oils and/or blends. I like lemon + lemongrass, or purification, or cinnamon + orange.
Next, fill the remainder of the bottle with water (almost to the top) and add ONE DROP of all-natural dish detergent. I added a cute label that says, “Spray the top before you drop.”
That’s it! Shake before each use, and give the toilet bowl 4-5 sprays before you go.
The first blend we tried was lemon + lemongrass. My entire family tested it, and we all now poop lemon meringue pies. It’s pretty cool!

I don’t think we have been lucky enough for poo-pourri to reach us here in the UK. Sounds interesting!
I’ve always just lit a match to burn off that methane but with 5 in the house I’m happy to give anything a try!
