My oldest daughter Betsy was on the third floor with a big ole can of Febreze™ and I suspect she was trying to hide the fact that she was partying. She sprayed that stinky assed shit on the sheets.
Then she went home to Frederick, Maryland, where Ron and I used to live for 8 years and where her dad and grandparents live.
Anyway, Alex got a hold of that can of Febreze™ that Betsy had left behind and emptied that sumbitch can of STANK all over the 3rd floor.
The Febreze™ set off the smoke detectors on both the second and the third floors!! Damn, Dayum. My Gods what is setting those things off?! I was thinking as my hubby and I rushed up there. Of course, by the time we ran up there, the opaque wall of that "light fresh scent" had given me a migraine headache. Probably the fastest migraine I've ever gotten. I got it in a matter of three minutes. I mean, that stuff made me physically ill, as if somebody had dumped a tablespoon of poison ivy in my morning tea. I broke out in hives and scratched the hell out of my itchy skin.
If Febreze™ can set off multiple smoke detectors on two different floors then that stuff can't be good for the lungs.
I say this now, even though the incident happened a couple years ago because I have noticed that Febreze™ is infiltrating lots of products. I can't watch a single cable TV show without seeing an ad huckstering Febreze™. And the big marketing gimmick this year is combining products as a way of rebranding them. Thus, you have Cascade/Dawn,™ Crest/Scope™ and Febreze/Tide™ a detergent combo that I will be avoiding like the song "Stairway to Heaven".
Does anybody really like the smell of Febreze™? Hands up for those who would like to put a plastic garbage bag over the inventors of that toxic brew of unnatural stench and spray a whole can up each of their nostrils. I'd rather suffer my hubby's Dutch Ovens than inhale a single molecule of StinkiBreze.
