Don't Buy This @#?%
CB strikes again. Since I'm on vacation, just hanging around, I went to Sam's Club to get CP's tires rotated. That's the kind of stuff middle-aged-white-guys do on vacation. Since getting the tires took 4 hours I figured that a tire rotation was a good way to kill a day off. I was fortunate, I was the only customer, so it only took an hour and a half for the rotation. During this time I leisurely did my shopping.
I needed some Febreze. I like to spray Bo's couch and love-seat once a month. I couldn't believe they had Febreze. Usually they only have the commercial Odo-Ban; the concentrate that makes 30 gallons of spray. I'm in a quandary. Do I get 64 oz. of Fabreeze or the five quart Odo-Ban concentrate that makes up to 30 gallons? Deciding what drug to prescribe for someone is much easier than this. I tried to sniff the Odo-Ban but it was sealed under the cap. Since I couldn't smell anything I thought I was safe. I come home and remove the pre-filled spray bottle from the gallon jug and spray the couch, love-seat and my well seasoned recliner. Within 3 seconds of the first spray CP comes running out of the office choking. I continue to saturate these three pieces of furniture remaining in a state of denial.
Well, this stuff isn't a generic equivalent to Febreze. Now the house smells like a Motel-6, or worse, an airport rest-room. It's so bad that CP had to leave and went to the gym. At least it's warm out and I can open the windows. Ben's girlfriend came over and I had to tell her to wait outside. Elizabeth has multiple allergies and I thought this would put her into anaphylaxis. I will return it to Sam's. Usually I use half the product and then return it but I don't even want this chemical weapon in the house. Maybe I will wait for a rainy day, since it usually takes an hour to return something at Sam's. I was there so early I didn't even get any samples. I need some air, I'm feeling dizzy!
