What is the right way to control bathroom odors? Light a Match?

Lighting a match is a common and popular method used by some individuals to mask or eliminate unpleasant bathroom odors, including those associated with poop. When a match is struck and lit, it produces sulfur dioxide, which has a strong odor that can help neutralize or overpower other smells. The idea behind this method is that the sulfur dioxide released from the match will help to mask or eliminate the odor of poop.

Temporary Solution to bathroom odor

While lighting a match can provide a temporary solution and help create a more pleasant atmosphere, it may not completely eliminate or neutralize all odors. Additionally, it does not address the underlying cause of the odor. Other options, such as using air fresheners, bathroom sprays, or products like Number 2 Perfume, can provide more effective and long-lasting solutions for controlling and eliminating bathroom odors.

Do public bathrooms allow you to light a match?

Lighting a match in the bathroom at work, in the dorm, or hotel rooms is strictly prohibited for safety reasons. Open flames can easily ignite flammable materials and cause fires, leading to significant damage, injuries, or even loss of life. These spaces are shared environments with multiple occupants, making fire safety a top priority.

To ensure the well-being of everyone and minimize the risk of accidents, it is important to adhere to fire safety regulations and guidelines, which typically prohibit the use of matches or any open flames in these areas. Instead, it is recommended to use alternative methods such as proper ventilation, air fresheners, or designated odor control systems to maintain a pleasant and safe bathroom environment.

What about incense or candles can they be burned in the bathroom?

Burning incense or candles in the bathroom is not advisable due to the potential fire hazards they pose. Bathrooms often contain flammable materials such as toilet paper, towels, or fabric shower curtains, which can easily catch fire if they come into contact with an open flame. Additionally, bathrooms are typically smaller, enclosed spaces, which increases the risk of fire spreading quickly and causing significant damage.

The Right Way to Control Bathroom Odors

Bathroom Hygiene

Remember that while these methods can help minimize bathroom odors, practicing good bathroom hygiene, such as flushing promptly, using toilet paper or wipes, and maintaining cleanliness, is essential in preventing and reducing unpleasant smells.

Since lighting a match, a candle or burning incense can be dangerous and not allowed in most public bathroom, the safest soultion to covering the smell of your poop is to not have it smell at all.

EarthSential Number 2 Perfume works to block odor causing bacteria from leaving the toilet bowl all together. Once sprayed into the water the odor causing bacteria is trapped under the surface. Your poop smell can not escape and will be flushed down first without ever being exposed to the air.   

Its a wonderful solution, people will think that your poop does not stink.
