It’s beginning to smell a lot like… Pre-teens?
It’s Christmas. The holidays. Is there anything more wonderful than stepping into a home decked with twinkling lights, evergreen branches, sparkling ornaments and the tantalizing smells of cinnamon, cloves, peppermint, baking cookies & holidays treats?
Smells often trigger the most amazing memories, nostalgia and comfort.
But… that can all be deflated once you step into the bathroom after one of my boys has stepped out!
We are in the pre-teen stage and I love it! However, bigger boys mean “bigger gifts” left in the bathroom.
There are eight people in our home. 3 ½ baths available for use. But Murphy’s law says that the bathroom you want to use will be occupied by a pre-teen.
Open the door… And WHAM! All beautiful christmas feelings are gone!
While I can’t prevent the line of children banging on the bathroom door for their brother to get off his phone and finish his business, I can provide a way to trap the embarrassing odors that are released with the opening of the bathroom door!
We love Air Wick candles, air freshener, and plugins. But now, I am no longer sure that we can live without Air Wick V.I.P. Pre-Poop Spray! Found at Walmart in the air freshener isle, these bottles trap all the nose-wrinkling smells and prevent the unanimous groan from everyone who walks by the bathroom.
V.I.P. traps the smells by creating a layer on the surface of the water with infused essential oils and neutralizing ingredients that release fresh fragrance and not tortuous smells.
When they say, “Every party has a pooper…” let’s keep that a secret!
While there’s still a warning disclaimer that the main half-bath of our house is used by children and it’s risky business to do your business, and that there may be a towel on the floor, an empty hand soap bottle, smudged lipstick kisses on the mirror, and most likely the empty toilet paper roll has NOT been changed, I CAN now control the smells with Air Wick V.I.P. Pre-poop spray! (I think our favorite is Lemon Idol.)
Side note: Stop right now and add the V.I.P. to your Walmart online order and don’t forget to use an Ibotta coupon for even more savings!
So, if you have a pre-teen boy (or man, or guest pooper), this is the perfect solution to keep the holiday smells appropriate! (wink-wink)
I may or may not be sliding a bottle of V.I.P. into each boy’s stockings…
