This it too funny! My friends a.k.a Mildred and Minerva were talking about this yesterday. Minerva had said “have you heard of poopourri?” and of course I laughed and said “isn’t it potpourri?” She said there was this stuff you could buy at the store called poopourri just put a couple of drops in your toilet bowl and voila no more stink in the commode! I really thought she was kidding until I opened my email this morning and received my weekly newsletter from Crunchy Betty one of my favorite blogs/websites I’ve attached part of Crunchy Bettys’ blog/website below.
I also found this stuff online it costs about 10.00 for 2oz this particular one had Lemon grass, Bergmont and Grapefruit in it. I love the little quote on the side of the photo
” Spritz the bowl before you go and no one else will ever know”
This is their ad below I wish I’d thought of this!!

The best part drum roll Crunchy Bettys’ own poopourri:
Eucalyptus Oil For Preventative Bathroom
That’s right. Eucalyptus oil.
Two to three drops in your toilet water, before doing your business, will nearly completely eliminate any odorous evidence that you’ve done anything.
How to Use Essential Oil to Cover Your Tracks
- Before sitting on the toilet, place 2-3 drops of oil into the water in the bowl
- Do, you know, it
- Walk out of the bathroom, confident that you’ve left no evidence of what you did in there
Now, of course sometimes you (or your husband, who I’m very certain is probably going to be encouraged to use this the most) will overpower the abilities of the oil to some degree. But those times will probably only be after Taco Bell – and you’ll feel so terrible anyway, it’s not like you’ll be in public. (Shame on you.)
And – you don’t HAVE to use eucalyptus. Peppermint, lemon, wintergreen … any relatively fresh and clean scented essential oil will do the trick. Heck, you could even mix some to tailor to your preferred scent.
I use eucalyptus oil as the example because a) it’s the strongest-smelling essential oil I know, b) it smells to me like a bathroom SHOULD smell, c) I like to spell out the word eucalyptus and d) it’s one of the least expensive essential oils.
Why This Is the Coolest Weird Trick Ever
These bottles are SO small, you can hide them anywhere:
- Tuck a bottle in your purse for on-the-go emergencies
- Keep a bottle in your desk drawer for unfortunate workday calls
- Tape a bottle to your husband so he doesn’t forget
- Tuck a bottle on the back of your toilet or bathroom cabinet – it takes up SO little room
- Or, you could make a giant sign like I did, for guests
Seriously. I can’t get enough of this stuff. It almost makes you excited to go now, doesn’t it?
(PS – Eucalyptus oil should never be ingested, so keep out of the reach of your little ones.)
