Your MIA blogger is back in action, and what better way to get back into the swing of things than to talk about the basic human function of doing a No. 2?
Normally, this is a topic usually left out of civilised conversation, but I’m going to share with you a way to pretend that you never poo. Or at least, if you do, fairy dust and unicorn wings are involved.
By now, if you watch Youtube videos, you most likely have come across this sassy advertisement:
Poo-Pouri claims to stop odours before they even start, and it works like so: the essential oils create a protective barrier when sprayed onto the surface of the toilet water, and keeps everything trapped underneath the oily film of scented goodness. However, the best part about Poo-Pouri is that it is completely natural. I balked at first at the idea of spritzing potentially harmful ingredients and causing damage to our water system every time one has to go. Thank goodness then, that Suzy (the founder) is just as crazy about being environmentally friendly as I am. Rest assured, she guarantees that all Poo-pouri products are alcohol, aerosol, parabens, phthalates, formadlehyde, and synthetic fragrance free. Yes, please, and thank you!
Let us first start off with the notes, which are a combination of my favourite flowers and plant/fruits: peony + rose + citrus. As promised, the fragrance of the blended essential oils is quite pleasing, but the strongest note is the citrus, which isn’t unpleasant –I do like a good citrus. I just hoped that it would be more meadow than breakfast fruit, but that is most likely because I love the scent of peonies. The scent did not give me a headache or seem artifical, as most commercial/synthetic fragrances do.
I have used this magical concoction quite a few times since I got it, and have even brought it to work; I love how it doesn’t mask, but contains the smell. If your No. 2 doesn’t leave a strong scent to begin with, I’ve found that even one spritz can be more than enough if you use (and you should always use) the courtesy flush –i.e., flush as you go, don’t let it collect in the bowl!
As others have noted on Amazon, it’s hard to spray when you tip the bottle sideways completely. My secret is to spray at a 45° angle; it works quite well!
In short, Poo-Pourri absolutely delivers. It is practical, discreet, and cheeky –qualities a good ‘toilet accessory’ should possess.

I now leave you with this little limerick for Poo La La.
there once was a dame called Colette,
whose odor she’d rather forget.
she bid odor adieu,
by spritzing the loo,
au revoir to “eww” de toilette.
