Who needs Febreeze?

We are not really a TV family but my kids have seen enough Febreeze ads around the edges of their dad's TV-news-watching to delightedly mock the product and its marketing.

Here's a scent solution that trumps the Febreeze scene. Go to the garden, pick a couple of good-sized spearmint leaves. Tuck one up each nostril. Make an effort to look oh-so-casual. Breathe.


But don't laugh, whatever you do. No one will appreciate your nasal air freshener detritus when it is suddenly ejected in their direction.
