What's That Smell?

Okay, so it's a lazy any damn day of the week Sunday and you've slacked off a bit on home maintenance. No biggie. Who's gonna see the mess but your children? 

The phone rings and you suddenly have 15 minutes to prepare yourself for unexpected guests.  You decide that the toys look charming strewn across the living room, but the overflowing trash can does NOT.  The trash goes and yet the odor remains.  You take a swipe at the cat box and still, you can smell something mysterious and unpleasant.  Opening the windows doesn't help and the clock is ticking. What do you do?

You could bake a pie to cover the smell IF you were the kind of person who was just about to bake a pie or just so happened to have a stash of SaraLee in the freezer, but you aren't THAT person. Are you? No you are the kind of person whose home has the lingering aroma of ass and you only have 5 minutes left.

Time to call in the big guns. 

I save my Yankee Candles for when I need serious nose camouflage.  The candle works in two ways:
1.  It muscles away any offending odors.
2. It distracts your guests.  They spend so much time wondering if you are about to serve them something yummy to eat, that they don't notice the unfolded laundry and the inch of cat hair on the carpet.
Just sayin'.
*Thanks Rachel! My supply was low.
