DIY Poo Spray (Make Your Own Poo Pourri)


You’ve likely seen the commercials with that sassy English lady speaking in a very classy manner about the unsavoury topic of bathroom duties…err..dooties (with plenty of poop jokes to go around).

The stuff works, no question about it.  But rather than spending your hard earned money on something you’ll literally flush down the toilet, why not make your own for a few cents!? So here’s a DIY Poo Pourri Bathroom Spray!

 All you need is:

20 – 30 drops of food colouring (blue or green is best)

  • 3 tablespoons vegetable glycerin
  • 2 tablespoons rubbing alcohol
  • 40 drops essential oils (create any scent combination that you like!)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • Clean (small) spray bottle

To make

Mix all liquid ingredients together in the spray bottle (you might find it easier to use a funnel to get this done).

To use

Shake the bottle well right before you use it (remember, you have to mix the oil with the water).  Spritz product about 10 times on top of the toilet bowl water

How Poo Spray works

The product creates an oily, scented barrier that floats atop your toilet bowl water (the food colouring will help you identify if the product has full coverage), which will trap your deposit underneath, including all unpleasant odours.  Then, just flush and move on; no one’s going to know what happened in there.

This is great to leave at the office, in the family bathroom or take with you to a party.

I hope you try this out!
