We blogged about this last year and got a lot of good responses, but felt that it was a good time to bring it up again.

Since our office now has nine people sharing one bathroom, we have sensed a heightened care being taken with the natural odors, which is appreciated by all.

Our arsenal?
A rickety ceiling ventilator and a bottle of natural citrus mist.

Our favorite was Orange-Mate Citrus air freshener, but we ran out of that and need to get more. Take the survey below the jump...

And if you take to treat the problem, what route do you choose? AT:Los Angeles asked people about these air fresheners in another post last year.

We loved these suggestions from our post:

I've actually taken to brewing a cup of earl grey tea and leaving it on my desk, so that the bergamot is a sort of scent barrier. :)

My airfreshener is homemade - in a small, clear spray bottle, cheap vodka and a few drops of whatever essential oil I want. Really, really works!

I bought a product called "Just a Drop" as a gag gift for a friend who is really into the match technique for odor control. Turns out the stuff really works!!

You just put a drop in the toilet bowl first and it pretty much eliminates any resulting odors.

Speaking of "courtesy flush", here's something similar to "Just a Drop".... It's called, "Courtesy Flush".
