SC Johnson Oust
Advantages: fast acting, no lingering scent
A few weeks ago, one of my pupils in my class wasn't feeling too well and ended up vomiting all over their table and chair, with too little time to go to the bathroom. Unfortunately, despite me opening the windows in my classroom as much as possible, this didn't get rid of that terrible, stomach churning smell of vomit, and of course, the other children were completely put off and unsettled due to the bad aroma. Thankfully a cleaner arrived in my room with a bottle of this Oust to leave for me to try.
Oust, is a air freshener that I had heard of before, probably from TV advertisments, but it wasn't on that I had previously bought myself for my own home. The Oust that I used as an air sanitiser with the Clean Scent and it had a blue coloured lid. It prides itself on actually dealing with the odour rather tham simply masking it like other air fresheners do, and then the smell actually returns. According to the information that is on the can, this product works by attaching itself to odour causing bacteria and killing them, thus dealing effectively with the smell. It claims to be ideal for odours created by dirty laundry, pets and mildew.
A can of this air sanitiser costs between £1.50 and £2 and is available in most supermarkets or chemists.
This product claims not to leave a lingering scent, which is good because sometimes other air fresheners can end up choking you with their strong scent.
Once I got given this product, I immediately sprayed all around the area where the child has been sick and within a couple of seconds the awful vomit smell had gone and the air smelt clean and normal again with not even a hint of the bad odour - so much so I even shut my windows not long after because the weather was bad, but more importantly if it hadn't been for this spray getting rid of the odour, I couldn'[t possibly have shut my windows all day as the smell was so bad. The great thing as well was that the odour never returned, so it must have done what it claims and actually dealt with the odour and not simply masked it.
So impressed was I with this product, that I went out and bought one for my own home and have now used it quite a lot usually in bathrooms with those lingering odours, and it has always worked very very quickly to tackle the odour and ensure it doesn't return. All in all a great product, and one that I am glad I was introduced to, albeit it in not a very nice way!
Summary: A great product that is fast at getting rid of those odours
