As you may know, I love Poo Pourri, it is a ‘before you go’ toilet spray that gets rid of the smell of poo… I have written about it before and I am a big fan. To buy your own now, head over and buy the real thing here.
This is the bloody wonderful advert here…
It is quite pricy though, especially if like me, you crap a lot… And so I came across a poo pourri recipe that I thought I would share with you all.
How to make your own poo pourri type toilet spray.
- Get a small 2 oz spray bottle.
- Combine 10 drops of Essential Oils and 1 tablespoon of Rubbing Alcohol
- Shake to mix thoroughly.
- Add water, enough to almost reach the rim.
- Shake extremely well till all the ingredients are mixed well.
Distilled water is apparently the best as tap water has minerals that could affect the recipe but you can buy distilled water very cheaply.
Instead of rubbing alcohol, you can use vodka. It’s purpose is to help the water and oil mix.
You should use 100% natural essential oils, don’t be tempted to use the cheaper synthetic blends.
You can add more drops of oil, it is totally up to your own preferences. You can use different scents and combinations. Some nice mixes are;
Orange and Peppermint
Lavender, Lemon and Rosemary
Lemon, Grapefruit and Lime
Bergamot, Patchouli and Ylang Ylang
But you can try whichever you like best.
Be aware that essential oils are strong and concentrated, and they can be poisonous in large doses. They can also cause allergic reactions in some individuals, and some can even react badly with people who have certain medical conditions or who are on certain medications, so do be wary.
If you want to be able to see the barrier in the toilet bowl, you can add a couple of drops of food colouring to the mix, but this isn’t necessary.
So there you go, I haven’t tried this yet, but will be doing it this week and see how it goes.
