Like everyone, my holidays are filled with festive events that focus on food, friends and family. I've put together a quick travel toiletry bag featuring my favorite new Poo~Pourri so number 2 doesn't scar you.

Have you ever been too scared to take care of business when your host's powder room is just off the kitchen or family room? Even if it's tucked away down the hall, fear no more friends. Poo~Pourri is the perfect tool to keep you and your reputation spelling like a rose, or lavender, citrus or even peppermint!

I love everything peppermint, which is why I sought out Poo~Pourri's Merry Spritzmas® to spray before I go this holiday! And for the rest of the year, a bright citrus and lavender are the perfect scents for my powder room.

How It Works

It’s pretty simple. When spritzed into the toilet bowl before-you-go, Poo~Pourri’s pure blend of natural essential oils creates a film on the surface of the water. The protective barrier traps odor under the surface, before it ever begins! All you’ll smell is a refreshing bouquet of natural essential oils. 

It's no secret that we all go poo, it's how we deal with it that makes ALL the difference. That includes being the best guest you can using, even gifting Poo~Pourri the Before-You-Go® Toilet Spray.

No matter the distance or length of time you'll travel and revel for holiday this year, you'll want to be prepared. If you're headed to your in-laws, neighbor's, new friend's, or boyfriend/girlfriend's family for a holiday gathering, be confident when you have a great smelling tool at hand to cover your bathroom break.

How To Be A Great Guest

It's no secret that being a good host means making guests feel comfortable. But the converse is true too, there are tips to being a great guest that will guarantee another invitation!

Here are some ways to get invited back

  • Never arrive empty handed and consider including a bottle of Pou~pourri as a hostess gift along with an edible treat.
  • Offer, but don't pester about helping in the kitchen.
  • If staying overnight, be sure to make your bed, tidy bathroom and generally 'leave no trace' when visiting as a guest.
  • When departing, ask your host where you should put linens for washing then deposit them. 
  • Send a thank you note with a favorite memory.
