Just what is POO-POURRI?

I'm not normally one to recommend products, but this one caught my eye on Oprah. Of course, any thing Oprah recommends or puts on her favorites list is sure to be a hit with women. The product of choice is simply called POO-POURRI. It is not cheap, but it does what it claims to do.

Okay, POO-POURRI claims to create a barrier to embarrassing bathroom odors. You know what kind of odors I'm talking about here. The label of the bottle reads: There once was a young lad from Rhone whose odor he'd rather disown. Now he's taming his poo by annointing the loo and now happily sits on his throne! Corny right? It also tells you to Spritz the bowl before you go and no one else will ever know. http://www.poopourri.net/
Suppose you go to a swanky dinner party and have to use the bathroom. You like me will either look high and low for a can of Lysol or Renuizit or a match. You've also got to pray no one will enter the bathroom for 20 minutes and put the fan on high. With POO-POURRI all you need to do is this. To anoint: Shake well, lift throne (toilet) lid & seat, spray directly onto the surface water until covered (4-6 sprays). Proceed to use throne as usual. Now please note that this product is a blend of Natural Essential Oils. It is natural and non-toxic, biodegradable but for external use only. Avoid Eye Contact. Haha. It is also a choking hazard and must be kept away from children. It was never tested on animals and is actually made in the USA. So, here's the bottom line. I think it works but am afraid to ask my housemate for a second opinion. A .4 fl. ounce bottle cost me $14.95, but my bathroom smells lemony fresh. You be the judge. At least the spray bottle is recyclable too and comes in a convenient travel size.
