SC Johnson Oust
Advantages: Takes the smell away
Disadvantages: Don't like aerosoles
Toilet smells, no one likes them but admit it, everybody makes them from time to time. For these little instances I have a can of Oust Odour Eliminator in my downstairs guest bathroom. I do not make Oust part of my everyday bathroom cleaning regime because I do not particularly like the smell but for times when you have guests and a lot of people using the toilet at any one time I like to have a spray that either they or I can use in between visits.
Oust is an odour eliminator and so it is meant to eliminate odours and not just cover them up with a strong perfume smell. According to their packaging it has a special formula which neutralises bad odour molecules in the air such as pet, bathroom, smoke and musty/mildew odours and it leaves your home smelling clean and fresh. There are a number of different fragrances that you can purchase but I like the clean scent better than the others. This scent is not as flowery or perfumey as the others. It just has more of a clean scent, like a powdery fresh scent and in my opinion in the closest scent you can get to normal smell than the other varieties.
The can comes with a spray at the top so all you do is press on the top of the can and the scent will spray out. I find you really only need one or two little sprays, any more and it is overpowering. I do however, find this air freshener a bit overpowering by just using a little bit. As it is an aerosol I find the spray is the type that can really get into your lungs and as I have asthma this is not the best thing so if I do spray this I do it as soon as I am leaving the bathroom and then close the door behind me to give it time to work but also time to disipate throughout the air.
Upon returning to the scene of the crime I generally find that this spray has worked well and usually taken away the nasty niffs without being too obvious that you sprayed something to cover up your bathroom visit.
Oust is made by SC Johnson and a 300ml can costs £2.25
