Homemade No.2 Poo Spray
Even though everybody does it, we all ignore that it happens, but…. everybody poops. That’s why it’s brilliant to have a bottle of this Homemade No.2 Poo Spray in your guest bathroom.
With the holidays coming up, you’re bound to have a house full of guests at some point. Heck, it doesn’t even need to be a household full, it could just be a couple of friends and believe me, you’ll be thankful you have this. We all want our homes to smell nice with no offensive odors coming from the bathroom.

We have 4 bathrooms. (I know! Who really needs 4?) We have the teen bathroom downstairs, our master bathroom, the upstairs guest bathroom, and our main floor powder room. Our powder room is the one that’s used the most during holiday gatherings. As if it’s not embarrassing enough to need to go No.2, the fan in that bathroom sounds like a jet engine, which of course alerts the entire household that you need the fan.
That’s when I thought I’d try to make my own “poo spray” to hide embarrassing odors.

How to Use Homemade Poo Pourri Toilet Spray
All you do is spray 3 or 4 times into the toilet bowl before you go. This creates a barrier film on top of the water and magically keeps the odor from escaping the bowl.
My new toilet spray will provide the perfect finishing touch to my bathrooms! I’ll be making my guests SO comfortable, they’ll forget any embarrassing thoughts that may occur.
How Does Poo Pourri Work?
Spraying the toilet bowl 3 or 4 times before you go, creates a film and barrier on top of the toilet bowl water. The barrier then traps odors as you do your business.

Poo Pourri Recipe Blends
If you’re using 3 scent varieties, you can keep it simple and just use 10 drops each. You can of course use more of one scent and less of another if you’re wanting one scent to overpower the others a bit. You can also use 1 or 2 varieties. You’re not stuck with 3. You can even use 4!
- Lavender, Lemongrass & Orange
- Bergamot, Orange, Lemon
- Peppermint, lime, lemon
- Rosemary, Lavender, Bergamot
- Jasmine, Orange, Lime
- Rose, neroli, vanilla
I love using fragrance oils too. Like a copycat of the Volcano Candle scent. I use it in my diffusers as well.
