This $9 Spray Stops Bathroom Stink Before It Even Starts


Having to light a match or quickly spray a cloyingly floral air freshener to mask the smells you’ve left behind in a bathroom, is a situation we’ve all been in. But no matter how universal this predicament is, it’s always still a little bit embarrassing. So why not nip the problem in the bud before you even take a seat?

The Before-You-Go toilet spray ($8.99, Amazon) has a scientifically-tested formula of “stink-fighting good stuff” that is designed to stop pesky smells before they even start. All you have to do is shake the very unoffensive-looking — even pretty enough to sit on display — bottle, spritz three to five times into the toilet bowl on the surface of the water, then “proceed to use throne as usual,” as the instructions on the label cheekily instruct. 

The spray is totally affordable and has an incredibly fresh citrus scent composed of lemon, bergamot, and lemongrass. It’s made with essential oils and other natural compounds, so you can put your mind — and your nose! — at ease and not worry about clogging up your home with a harsh air freshener full of potentially harmful chemicals.

If you’re interested in the spray but don’t love the original citrus scent, you’ll be happy to know there are other Before-You-Go options available, like the popular lavender vanilla spray ($9.99, Amazon) and the tropical hibiscus spray ($10.99, Amazon). If you can’t decide which spray would be the best for your home, there’s also a sampler pack of five called the In-A-Pinch Pack ($19.95, Amazon) available for purchase.

Try it for yourself, and see if you aren’t amazed by the difference!
