I recently bought Scrubbing Bubbles Toilet Cleaning Gel http://www.walmart.com/ip/Scrubbing-Bubbles-Fresh-Clean-Gel-Discs-Toilet-Cleaning-Gel-6-ct/11045773 for our bathrooms. I had tried them out before and was happy with the results.
I cleaned the master bathroom and put a "dose" of the gel in our toilet. I left the applicator with the remaining uses on the shelf in the bathroom.
Last night I went to speak to my husband as he was getting ready for bed and he mentions that he can't get that "thing" on the shelf to stop smelling. I rush in there to find the applicator sitting on the shelf with gel oozing out of it.
Much high pitched talking ensues as I try to clean up the mess DH has made and I try to comprehend why on earth he would squeeze out what appeared to be the entire contents of the applicator but was actually just one dose. I kept asking why he didn't ask me. I asked "Didn't your mother teach you to not mess with things if you don't know what you're doing?"
*sigh!* See the problem is that DH is very sensitive to smells...so much so that if he doesn't like the way something smells...well he doesn't think too properly.
He says he thought the applicator was a rather ugly air freshener that I had left open and he was trying to close it...he didn't realize that the smell he was smelling was coming from the toilet, not the applicator.
I suppose that I shouldn't have left the applicator where he could see it, but it didn't occur to me that this would be a problem. And the very sad part of all of this is that I had planned to use these in all 3 of our bathrooms which will make the entire house smell (note: I find the fragrance to be very NICE!).
I guess I better hurry and get the other two bathrooms cleaned and put the gel in them so he gets blasted with the smell. LOL!
