Q: Why do you have to shake it?
A: Poo~Pourri bathroom fresheners are made of all natural odor eliminators and essential oils. In order to keep it this way you have to shake to mix the ingredients. We thought this was better than adding harmful chemicals.
Q: What about the gas that escapes?
A: While the product works great at eliminating bathroom odors, it is designed to trap and neutralize odors IN the toilet. If you experience residual smells due to gas, we suggest you spray Poo~Pourri lightly in the air after using the restroom. Be careful, oil overspray may cause slippery surfaces or damage to materials.
Q: What about floating waste matter?
A: By the way, this is the most commonly asked question by guys (go figure). Yes, it works great on floaters because as they penetrate the film they are coated. When they surface they are encapsulated with Poo~Pourri eliminating potential bathroom odors. No need to worry.
Q: Will the bathroom deodorizer spray leave a residue on my toilet?
A: That has not been our experience! Because of the emulsifying agent in the Poo~Pourri and the agitating motion of the water that comes from flushing most if not all the bathroom deodorizer spray ends up being flushed; Therefore not leaving a residue behind.
Q: Is it safe on the toilet, pipes or septic system?
A: Poo~Pourri contains only natural odor eliminators and essential oils commonly found in other bath products and should have no more effect to any part of your waste water system than using a natural shampoo or conditioner in your shower.
