Let’s be honest for a minute…we’re all friends here, right?

Ok, good. So let’s talk about bathrooms. Because OH MY GOSH no sooner do I clean it than it gets stinky again!

There’s only so much scrubbing that a mom can do without going crazy. And as you know, we don’t use commercial air freshener sprays because they contain toxic chemicals.

A friend of Hubby’s told me about a toilet freshener spray that “seals” the smells into the toilet. I thought it was a great idea until I found out how much it costs…about 10 bucks a bottle. Holy crap! 😉 You’d think it was made from unicorn tears or something.

Time to DIY and make my own toilet deodorizer spray.

As they say on the commercial: “Spray in the toilet before you go, and nobody will ever know!”

Just like the store version, this copycat recipe creates a film over the toilet water, sealing in odors. The essential oils provide extra cover-up power, so it’s like a one-two punch for your number two.

The best part? A bottle of Copycat Poo Pourri costs less than $2 to make—and that’s including the cost of the bottle.

    I made some to bring to work (the bathroom is right across from my office!) I think everyone has finally got the hang of using it instead of spraying the room with stinky perfume. Yeah, that doesn’t give you away!

    HI! what a great recipe! Can I ask, why is there vegetable glycerin in the recipe? what is it for? Thanks!

    • Pam on June 28, 2020 at 10:15 pm

      Thanks! The vegetable glycerine is what “seals” the surface of the water to keep odors from escaping.

    Can you use something else besides vegetable glycerin or do you have a recipe to make my own?

    Why distilled vs regular water?

    • Pam on November 21, 2019 at 3:30 pm

      Distilled water doesn’t have any of the bacteria or contaminants that tap water may have. This way, your poo-pourri doesn’t have to be stored in the fridge (which would make it difficult to use!).

      • Mark on January 1, 2020 at 12:28 pm

        Distilled water doesn’t have the dissolved minerals that hard water from your
        tap may have. It may help to prevent the spray from clogging.

    How do you make it with fabric softener?

  13. Darlene on September 11, 2018 at 10:13 pm

    Hey Stephanie did you use just fabric softner…..or did you add it to the other ingredients?

  14. Stephanie on September 5, 2018 at 10:03 am
