  1. I am making a sign like yours. That’s the best part!

      First of all, I would like to congratulate you on being one of the only two people BRAVE enough to comment on this post. In my book, that makes you a super hero.

      And the sign? I’m thinking about having it embroidered.

      I kinda like it, too.

  2. Ha! this is funny but yes it’s true. Eucalyptus is some strong stuff!. You can probably use peppermint to get the job done as well.

    (love that photo!)

      So true about the peppermint oil.

      I combine peppermint and eucalyptus to help clear my sinuses. If you did that for the toilet, it would SO multitask. Haha. (I don’t know why that makes me laugh so hard … two really gross things.)

  3. Hi Leslie,
    You are as always full of great ideas! Sorry for giving you too many details, but we have such a small bathroom write now without any ventilation, well you know, i terribly need an eucalyptus oil :).

    • Crunchy Betty

      Haha. You can try peppermint oil for now! But, yeah, eucalyptus is the. best. ever.

      I know what you mean about a small bathroom with little ventilation (AND ours is connected by a VERY poorly sealed door) to the master bedroom. It’s hard to hide ANYTHING in this place.

      Until now … heh.

    Oh. my. word. I laughed so hard. My first thought when you said your last ‘poo was of course this “poo”! And now you have addressed even this poo. I didn’t think anyone would do this. And you DID!!! I am in love with you now. Too funny. I might actually try this. Small house. 3 boys. ‘Nough said!

      You, my dear, have an awesome sense of humor. Like, the best. Ever.

      Seriously, you gotta try this stuff. I couldn’t believe it worked. I mean … you know what I mean.

      Such a touchy subject. Too easy to get gross with it.


  5. Just had to let you know…. after thorough and rigorous testing… I am happy to say that this totally works! We were so amazed (not that I doubted you for a minute), we even got one for everybody on our Christmas list! That’s not weird is it?

    P.S. please thank your aunt

    A friend of mine bought me the “just a drop” brand bottle (pretty sure that’s the one you don’t want to name) for christmas a few years ago.  I STILL have some in the because we forget to use it and it smells like you’re “going” in a forest.  It stinks!  And it doesn’t hide the odor very well.  I am running (to amazon) right now and ordering a bottle of eucalyptus!

    I just found your website today – love it. You’re funny. Almost as funny as me. I will be back.

    I found this Pinterest today… can’t wait to try this in my very small home with one bathroom!!

    I don’t have any eucalyptus oil (but plan on buying some after reading two of your posts), BUT I do have some peppermint oil. I was using the peppermint oil for headaches, sinus issues and the occasional mouth ulcer my youngest son gets, but thanks to you, it is now an even more multi-purpose EO.  Thank you – I love your site.

    My mom has this little bottle of spray at home she got called “poo-pouri” now I can make my own, yay!

  11. Christine

    My friend gave me a bottle of eucalyptus oil and lavender oil for Christmas and I’m just now researching uses for them. This is BY FAR the best use for eucalyptus oil! My bottle will definitely be kept in the bathroom from now on! Thanks for the tip and I’m loving your blog!!

    I love the sign. I’d make it rhyme though. “Put two drops before you go, and no one will ever know.” Or “A drop or two before you poo, so when you go no one will know.” But I’m silly like that. :P

    Late to the punch, but I’ve been using this method for a while now and since I also have the ventilation fan on usually, I can’t say how perfectly effective it is (shame on me). I do know that at the very least, my bathroom smells better than ever (yay, wintergreen!). I just run out of the wintergreen, though, so I bought the eucalyptus as is originally recommended, and I like it just fine.

    One problem, and this may be because I use too much by accident or something that time: While doing my business, my, um, down-there felt sorta like… burning. o.o I know eucalyptus is very strong, so maybe that was it, with the fumes doing their thing. I tried being careful about making sure it’s two drops at most, and it seems to fix the problem. Will keep on being vigilant about it from now on.

  14. LOL tape a bottle to your husband. Surgically implant a refillable bottle? Lol. Good idea! You’re simply amazing at what ya do, sounds like it runs in the family too!! I once made a sign to put seat down for guys. I think it had the OPPOSITE effect lol but this would probably work wayyyy better

  15. I wonder if I put a few drops on my undies if it’d have the same effect…? Hehe
