Oust Complaint - Doesn't kill the odor

Review by ejack053824 on 2008-04-27
TAMPA, FLORIDA -- After doing my daily ritual in the morning I decided to give Oust air freshener a try. It actually made the stench worse by masking/covering up the odor instead of killing it. I know for sure it didn't work when a colleague of mine went into the bathroom and did an about face and Marched right out while gagging. Only thing that remotely helps for me is extra strength Lysol.

Is this a testimonial to the fact the Hormel chili is stronger than Oust?

Courtesy flush.

super, no, no, no. It's a courtesy SNIFF. Jeff said so.

Need I say more? Well, okay, I will. Now ejack, did you think a little spray would really kill the odor? But, it did oust your friend right out of there! Whatever you do, don't light a match, lol!

In all seriousness, I use a product called Air Therapy Environmental Essence that I get at Trader Joe. It's expensive at, I think, $4, but the small container lasts for up to 2,000 sprays (or so it says). For you, that may not be true, but I would definitely give it a try! (It does seem to work when my son and husband are home at the same time.)

Super's right ej, I hope you are taking this step as SOP. That being said, I do applaud your consideration. To be honest, this really sounds more like your colleague's problem when you think about it.

ejack, I undersand your pain. I was on a date the other night and had gas real bad, and eventually mother nature had seduced me. I used her restroom, and she also had some oust...obviously did not work, b/c she used the restroom shortly after I did my thing, and she made excuses to end the date early!

Oust ruined my date! Very informative complaint, ejack!

Ok FIRST OF ALL...Ejack...I had a heart to heart talk with your CO, and he agreed to build an outhouse far out of the sniffing range to other human beings (Animals are on their own)...This outhouse is for your use only and it will be built topless...continuous airing is what you need...not that perfumy spray scents.
There have been plenty of times when I've done the about face out the restroom at NCO, gagging....people would see me coming out with watery eyes and gagging reflexes, then they'd say, "OH, I don't want to go in there do I"...I said, "NO, I couldn't even use it, I had to leave"...I said that because I didn't want someone seeing me coming out of there, and thinking I did that! LOL...ok, I admit, my "you know what" doesn't stink. I know you won't believe that Ejack...but it's true!

ejack I agree with you 100%. This oust stuff is junk. I live with three boys. I tried this stuff in the bathrooms as well as in the diaper pail and all it did was made everything smell like flowery poopie. It took two days to get that smell out of the house.

I'm still getting hollered at for leaving the seat up AND not using the "air freshener".
Easier for her to stand up and put the seat down than it is for me to bend over and lift it up.

Princi...when are you going to teach your hubby to empty his own diaper pail?
Posted by chris513 on 2008-04-27:
ejack, try lighting a scented candle...that's what i do and it seems to cut down on the stench. and trust me, i can blow it up when i drop a deuce.

I rewarded all of you as "Very Helpful". Thanks!

Principissa....you're the only one that understands my pain here. When I sprayed the oust after coming out of the lavatory...it smelled like a rat had died in the bathroom.
Posted by ejack053824 on 2008-04-28:
Dimple...you took a dump at your dates house? LMAO!!! Now that is classic! I never thought of doing that so thanks for the great idea to get rid of a date who is irritating! LOL!
Posted by ejack053824 on 2008-04-28:
Chris..I wouldn't even think of having a fire where I drop the stink pickle! LOL!
Posted by ejack053824 on 2008-04-28:
Diane..now that is some useful information you gave there! Thanks! I will give that product you mentioned a try. My colleagues and CO will thank you for it if it works. LOL!
Posted by ejack053824 on 2008-04-28:
Slim...I warned my colleague before he went in there but he decided to be a tough guy about it. He wasn't so tough after all! LOL!
Posted by ejack053824 on 2008-04-28:
Basher....so you and my CO had a talk about my gas problem? Invite me over for stuffed cabbage and a six pack...we will see then. LOL!
Posted by ejack053824 on 2008-04-28:
Super...courtesy flushes don't work for me. Once it's airborne...it sticks to everything. LMAO!
Posted by ejack053824 on 2008-04-28:
Tnchuck...Hormel Chili rules. I don't think Oust has a formula to cut through that fog yet. LMAO!
Posted by DebtorBasher on 2008-04-28:
Ok...you can talk about stink, you can talk about poop, you can talk about anything you want...but PLEASE no more Hormel Talk!

I went to Pizza Hut yesterday to pick up a pizza for my Dad...Sausage, Pepperoni and Mushrooms...when I went to pick it up, I asked the kid if he knew what brand of pepperoni they used. (I wasn't eating anything with Hormel Pepperoni). He said he didn't know, but he could check for me. I told him I'd appreciate it. He asked if the pepperoni was an issue with me...I said, "It's just a personal issue" I didn't mention anything about Hormel Pepperoni, because I felt he would just say it wasn't Hormel, even if it was. He said several times that he knew it wasn't Hickory (don't know why he kept saying that, unless others have issues with Hickory or maybe it was recalled...don't know). So, he went to the back and carried this big box of pepperoni out and showed me the box. We didn't find any name on the box...then I said, I just wanted to make sure it wasn't Hormel. He said, "Why, do you have issues with Hormel"...I said, "Yes, I don't eat anything made by Hormel, and I know one of the other Pizza places uses Hormel pepperoni on their pizza, So, I don't order pepperoni pizza from them, It's just a personal preference of mine" I didn't tell him about the free animal windpipe found in several cans of their beef stew. I thanked him for his time and went on my way with the pizza.

Your kidding! You made that poor minimum wage Pizza Hut worker drag out a box of pepperoni just to see what brand it was?! Basher...Stew would be disappointed in you after the way you treat his former co-workers. LOL!!

ejack I always thought air freshener was supposed to make it smell better NOT WORSE. My kids can stink out the entire bottom floor of a 2000 sq. foot house. And my husband will make your eyes water and wish you had no sense of smell. Try using Yankee Candles, they seem to work better than any can ever could.
Posted by Anonymous on 2008-04-28:
I don't think it's safe for ejack to light a match, so the candles don't seem like a wise idea, lol. BTW, your welcome ejack--definitely hunt down the stuff I recommended. It really works.
Posted by chris513 on 2008-04-28:
a stinkpickle...LOL!
Posted by DebtorBasher on 2008-04-28:
Ejack...I'm coming over your house for dinner someday and I WILL make you CRAWL on your knees and ORDER you to show me all the ingredients used in the preparation of my meal. AND, you will remain on you knees until I ORDER you to stand up like a man...and you will do so with a, "Yes, Basher"..."Whatever you say, Basher"..."Right Away, Basher"...and only then, will I allow you the privilege of sitting at the same table with me to enjoy our meal together.
Posted by ejack053824 on 2008-04-28:
Basher....what fantasy world are you living in?! LOL! NO ONE...I mean NO ONE orders me to do squat unless you have a gold oak leaf or higher rank. If you ask me nicely...I will more then likely do what you request everytime. :) By the way...I can cook.

Also Basher...your outbursts are getting pretty frequent now. Did you get your prescription filled? LOL!
Posted by DebtorBasher on 2008-04-28:
Ejack...you see how I brought you under control? From "NO ONE orders me to do squat" to "I will more then likely do what you request everytime"...LOL...THAT'S the way men SHOULD behave!
Posted by ejack053824 on 2008-04-28:
Basher....your leaving out one word in order to get me to do those things. LOL!!! Sweetie...do I need to come there and take you to the pharmacy so that you have your meds? I'll give you the $10.00 co-pay if you would just please stop with the outbursts! LOL!
Posted by DebtorBasher on 2008-04-28:
Oh...I'm sorry, I DID leave out one word to get you to do those things...."NOW"!
Posted by ejack053824 on 2008-04-28:
Basher.....your disappointing me!! You know better! Is your tourettes that bad? LOL!
Posted by DebtorBasher on 2008-04-28:
...but you still love me! *Batting my eyes*
Posted by ejack053824 on 2008-04-28:
LOL!!!
Posted by DebtorBasher on 2008-04-28:
Don't You????? *Showing some bare shoulder*
Posted by ejack053824 on 2008-04-28:
Damn Principissa...do you live in your septic tank? Your husband deserves a salute from me! SALUTE! The kids are just in training...with enough practice you will be looking to live in a oxygen bubble. LOL!
Posted by dimplepie on 2008-04-29:
Ohh yea, I love to poop, it's like a class 2 hobby of mine as well! Always gotta break in your dates bathroom, b/c half of the time the relationship is short term and never works out in the long run anyway :)

However, I still don't blame myself for my short evening, therefore I blame it on her for not having good enough bathroom spray! LOL!
Posted by ejack053824 on 2008-04-29:
ROFLMAO Dimple!! Dimple you shouldn't have flushed. It would have been fun to see your dates reaction after she found a 6 inch turd floating on the surface. LOL!
