My wife has an incredible sense of smell (like a blood hound) and yes it can become annoying after awhile sharing the bathroom. I saw a novel odor removing product in a commercial online and thought to myself, "wow, this is better than sniffing a can of odor masking chemicals". After researching it further, I discovered all Poo Pourri is, is basically a mixture of essential oils in fancy packaging. At roughly $10 dollars per bottle in Amazon, I would rather make it myself.

Of course somebody else beat me on the idea already. I found a DIY website here with a working recipe. In my case I used tea tree oil because it was in arms reach but it works.

1 tsp rubbing alcohol: $.02 (At $2.29 per 16 oz bottle)
30-40 drops essential oils: around $.50 depending on oils used
water: Free. Sure, I pay my water bill every month, but it’s a set amount so my bill would be the same whether I make this spray or not.

Total Cost: About $.52 for a 3 oz bottle. Or $.17 per ounce.
