Your bathroom

In your bathroom: a candle or spray? Overhead fan or not?

We’re a spray with fan family, though we’ve been known to break out candles on “special occasions.”

I don't use sprays....fear of breathing the stuff as well as cleaning up a residue when it settles.

Ceiling exhaust fans, window in one bathroom (woo hoo! ask me how many times I have forgotten that the curtains were open!), and candle in theh powder room along with some great Linden Fig soap. Any sort of fig soap smells fabulous in a bathroom.

Why are you boycotting capital letters?

Our bathroom utilizes both a candle and a spray, but the spray is only for emergencies. We actually have an exhaust fan, too, but it has a timing knob without a knob, so we have to use pliers to turn it on. It's awesome.

Oddly, the candles are NOT method candles.

windows are great, fans are ok, matches when needed.
I don't mind smelling slightly frou-frou, but not my apartment! (well, I might make an exception for a Jo Malone candle..)

Frou-frou?

In my experience, fans serve no purpose other than to mask noise. They have zero effect on stank!

Any-hoo, in my house we use candles.

The band "Frou Frou"? How would they fit in your bathroom?



What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
