I don't know about you but I panic when I know someone is coming over to visit. I clean the house from top to bottom, but I'm never fully satisfied because I always worry about odor infestation, in other words, what your guests overwhelmingly smell as soon as they walk in the door. Let's be real, we all know that person that can track scents like bloodhound. They can follow the scent trail and no matter how well you clean they can always find it.
Our friends at Febreze invited us to have a movie night and do a noseblind test to see if we have develop “Odor Habituation” which is a re-programming of your brain’s process to all but ignore a smell. I just couldn't say no to be part of this experiment, because papa bird has always complained, that we are never able to notice lingering odors. Since he is the bloodhound of the family, and the kids and me are apparently noseblind, he was the one who conducted the survey/noseblind experiment.
Basically we took a quick survey, then made some popcorn, and took a second survey online, watched a movie downstairs with the kids, and when the movie ended we took one last survey. We were asked things like what is the predominant odor in our house, and to rate the strength. I have to say that after making the popcorn, papa bird turned on a febreze candle behind our back and the smell coming from the candle completely predominated not just downstairs but all the way to the second floor.
