natures-call.jpgBefore we had kids, my husband and I always lit a match after, you know… Post-children, however, we figured it wasn’t all that safe to keep a book of matches lying on the back of the toilet, so I started buying spray air fresheners to mask the smells. Yet the more I used them, the more concerned I became about their toll on the environment. How could I pride myself on reducing my carbon footprint when I was blasting an aerosol can on a daily basis?

Behold: Poo~Pourri Toilet Deodorizers, an organic, environmentally friendly bathroom spray. Their newest spray, Nature’s Call, is a blend of organic oils (including lemongrass, orange and grapefruit) that eliminate odors at the source, which is why it’s used before you go. Basically, the oils work to wipe out the smell before it hits the air, leaving the room with a fresh, clean scent.

Poo~Pourri products comes in a variety of different sizes, including a 5ml tester bottle that would fit nicely in my purse (I can’t count the number of times I’ve been in a public restroom, wishing I had something like Poo~Pourri to discreetly hide the fact that last night’s meal wasn’t sitting so well). Each product is 100% green – safe for both the environment and septic tanks – and is outfitted with an unconditional, 30-day money-back guarantee. So really, there’s no reason for you not to give Poo~Pourri a try!
