@tinamarie1974 do you know why that scent is called Thieves? My former boss had a Thieves diffuser and said it was a scent thieves used way back in the day to put on their upper lip when they were robbing graves. It would block the scent of the bodies they were digging up. Like a medieval Vicks vaporub.
@djslack@tinamarie1974 true but incomplete… The story also goes that they never got sick when using those oils even tho they robbed the sick and dying because that combination of oils has antiseptic properties. That’s why thieves items are cleaning products (or at least that’s how they started)
FWIW, back during the recovery from the earthquake and subsequent deaths in Haiti they had a shortage of toothpaste.
It was all getting used to put on upper lips/in nostrils for the body recovery teams.
(Filed that info away and used it when I went to go pick up a “highly inflated” deceased dog in a ditch below our house one time… worked as advertised.)
Not exactly a cleaning product, but I really love those natural citrus spray air fresheners. They always smell so good and the scent sticks around for quite a while. Bleach smell nice in small amounts too when used to clean floors, etc.
@jerk_nugget@Weboh you’ll have to excuse my stupidity. I was out late with friends for a change and looking at the options, citrus didn’t mean anything to me. I actually love lemon scented stuff and I was surprised it wasn’t a choice.
I drive by an orange grove once a week and I love how it smells when the flowers are blooming.
depends on the season.
summer = orange
fall = apple
winter = pine
spring = lavender or lilac
already using the lavender though because i’m ready for spring to get here and i’m ready to open the windows and to not feel so dry and stuffy. but it’s boston so…that won’t be happening for awhile lol. usually i love hunkering down for a long winter but this year i’m over it early for some reason.
@DennisG2014@tinamarie1974 I dropped a little piece of dry ice in the mop bucket of one of our hospital housekeeping staff one time. I then accused her of mixing chemicals and trying to kill us all… she couldn’t get away from it fast enough…
