Smelly Poo: How to Make Your Own Spray to Mask Your No. 2

Smelly Poo: How to Make Your Own Spray to Mask Your No. 2

smelly poo organizedchaosonlineObviously a work in progress.

Sh*t happens. It just does. It can happen at home, at work, on a first date or when you least expect it. You’re human. Most people don’t talk about it – that makes me laugh. I’m soooooo not the type of person to be embarrassed about potty talk but I also don’t want the reality of people knowing when I did it.

How many of you non-potty talkers are squirming right about now? Are you reading this in a Starbucks or at work and constantly looking over your shoulder to see who is seeing you read this?

Well, I’m writing it in a Starbucks. Make you feel better?

Back to topic…

poo pourri crap shooter

For Christmas, my in laws bought me a spray called “Poo-Pourri” that masks the stinky poo 100%. It’s seriously the most amazing thing ever invented! I went online to buy out every scent available but it’s some pricey stuff. Remind me to thank my in-laws, again, for dropping $15 on poo spray. It has saved lives. I’ll let them know that, too.

When on a budget, resort to DIY.

We are now sharing with you our version of poo spray called SMELLY POO!

It’s so easy, it’s ridiculous. You need essential oils, a small spray bottle and some water. We have included all supplies (with a bunch of options) in our store HERE so you can have it all sent to your house at once. We’re doing this because you can make an infinite number of scent varieties for so little. Christmas presents, anyone?

In more detail…

1. SPRAY BOTTLE

Use a 5 oz-ish bottle to follow the “recipe”. As you can see, this is very specific.

Aluminum Spritzer2. WATER

I’m choosing to use distilled water. The “recipe” calls for 8 oz.

distilled water

 3. ESSENTIAL OILS

The actual “recipe” suggest 10 drops each of Bergamont, Grapefruit and Lemongrass oils

holiday essential oils

.

“MAKE YOUR OWN “SMELLY POO”

What about a holiday blend? You can go all fall-like and spice it up or create a perfect Christmas scent. No, I’m not kidding. How amazeballs would that be?

Who, me? No, I was just in the restroom freshening up.

You’ll notice the fresh holiday scent.”

We also have summer scents, a box of “favorites” and more in our STORE.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE:

When you head into the restroom to…um… “freshen up” spray one or two spritzes of your new SMELLY POO!

KEEP THE STENCH CONTAINED

Here’s the deal: When you go to the bathroom and flush, the particles escape the toilet and dissipate into your air. Your BREATHING air. Gross, right? The scent goes with it. If you create a solid barrier (whether it’s SMELLY POO, your rear or the lid of the toilet), stop those particles from escaping. Don’t let the world know your secret – you are human and you actually poo.

Tips for Moving – Part 3: DIY Home Renovations

Tips for Moving – Part 3: DIY Home Renovations

DIY-Renovations-main-image

I’m so excited to share Part 3: DIY Home Renovations. There are some really really cool ideas that are simple and can be inexpensive.

Just in case you missed it:

Part 1: Packing

Part 2: Cleaning & Repairs

If you are moving into a house that needs a little TLC or if you’re selling a home that needs a bit of updating to make it stand out among the rest, this post is for you.

Take your home from “meh” to “luxe” in no time.

Seriously, you don’t have to be talented at all. You just have to know how to read directions…and not many at that. Click on your favorite images to see more about each project.

Let’s get started!

NEW KITCHEN BACKSPLASH

Create a stone backsplash with “Airstone”. You buy the stones, add adhesive and literally stick it to the wall. Check out how Lovely Crafty Home did it. (scroll down a bit to see the kitchen)

FRESH KITCHEN CABINETS

I won’t pretend that all The Lettered Cottage did was paint their cabinets. They did a full kitchen makeover but it’s all DIY. First things first: Paint those cabinets. After seeing the steps they took in order for their kitchen to go from “before” to “after,” I’d like to live with them. Would that be weird. They have the CUTEST house. IT’S ALL DIY!

STONE KITCHEN ISLAND

From the “Why didn’t I think of that” file, House Honeys took their typical-looking island and made it look like a high-end vacation home. I could totally see this in a house celebrities go to ski in the winter. I mean, come ON. It’s so cool! This, too, is Airstone. Adhere the stones to the island. Done and done.

GRANITE-LOOKING COUNTERS

Oh, I’m sorry, you thought this was granite? Nope. It’s a DIY paint job, friends. I’m talking “paint with a sponge and dab the colors together” type of process. Love DIY Network for this simple how-to.

MOSAIC TILE BATHROOM MIRROR

Centsational Girl has turned a basic-looking mirror into a work of art. I’ve also read that you can purchase adhesive tiles from a hardware store and line them along the edges. Whatever your choice, you’ll have a killer-looking mirror.

MODERN FIXTURES

No matter what your fixtures look like (bathroom, kitchen, hallway, whatever), you can spray Rustoleum spray paint on them for a completely updated look. Now I want about 500 cans so I can go nuts on my house. We’re talking toilet paper holders, faucets, lights… See what Entirely Smitten did!

SHOWER UPDATE

This is something that NEVER occurred to me to change. I would just keep looking at the brass eye sore and decorate around it. Dear Style With Cents, you’re changing our world (and saving us money from avoiding that house with an ugly shower).

ROCK TUB

Remember Airstone from a few pictures up? It’s baaaaaack! Lovely Crafty Home, I need to stop right now and get myself an entire truck of this stuff. I’ll live in a stone house by the time I’m done. I want to even put Airstone on my half wall from the living room to the kitchen. Look at this spa-like tub! It went from completely typical to appearing expensive.

MODERN VENTS

While you have your Rustoleum spray paint out, why don’t you just grab the vents and paint those, too. The Frugal Homemaker had some tired looking vents (eh hem, so do I). After a quick spray, the vents are tired no more.

NEW-ISH DOORKNOBS

Source: Live Love DIY

Gee, guess what kind of paint does this awesomeness? Live Love DIY went nutty (just like I would) and painted her doorknobs, furniture handles and more. It cracks me up to see someone similar. Changing those gold doorknobs are a must. Let’s all do it. Wanna?

A WELCOMING ENTRANCE

Talk about curb appeal. 320 Sycamore changed the look of their home entry by getting rid of the screen, adding paint to the door, accessorizing with the cute little numbers and adding a punch of color with the flowers. Gah. We think this is adorable!

What else needs a bit of sprucing up at your home?

Turn Your Bathroom into a Conversation Piece!

Turn Your Bathroom into a Conversation Piece!

I’ve been having a bad week (Yes, I do realize it’s only Monday). Things just in general have been shitty due to some really unusual circumstances. I’m not complaining really, well…yeah, I kinda am. When life sucks, I shop. I want to redo my bathroom, and when searching for unique bathroom ideas, I found some pretty weird-ass stuff. So, to match the theme of my mood, I wanted to share with you some of the shitty and unusual bathroom decor I found.

I’ve included the purchase links for you if you find something that strikes your fancy. I know I feel better already. There’s something to this retail therapy! Here’s to better days – Enjoy!

Bingo!

I’ve found the idea for my bathroom. I love the woman with the camera! I’m so going to do this and not even mention it to Paul. It will just appear behind the toilet one day and I’ll see if it causes him performance anxiety. Watch our blogs for my finished result!!
