good article tutu. ozone generators and negative ion generators are very helpful to blast these compounds out of the air. smogging an unoccupied room can do wonders.

Thanks. Even better would be people thoughtful enough to quit wearing fragrance.

I got so angry yesterday. I went to Wal-Mart to buy vinegar and borax for laundry because of lower price. And I picked up a few other things. Walking to the car I smelled glade or room deodorizer...but I was outside!

It was the bags!!! I had to unpack everything and set it in car...wrap bags in one and tie it to the cart and when I got home bring everything in without bags. Later that night I opened a box of potty pads...same unscented ones I have bought for 5 yrs...and they filled the house with sweet smell...so mad. How can they do this???

Honestly I really think they are doing it on purpose

Oh, kayak .. That is horrible.

Why they scent things is beyond me.

Who was wearing the AXE? I hate strong deodorants. The men are making me ill with their deodorants. It's worse than women with their perfumes.

Dryer sheets in the neighbors dryer MAKES ME SICK.

Never use dryer sheets!!!!!! They blow out bad air outside.

No scented laundry detergent either. Dollar General has ALL unscented,it is great!!!

2-4-D Fumes can kill me, grass weed killers all have 2-4-D.

I never wear shaving lotion or anything smelly.

I have tons of Christmas gift bottles of crap stuff like Stetson.They sit there unused.

Except for the stetson, if you get a skunk den in your yard just spray stetson down the hole. The skunk will leave and never come back.

No kidding skunks hate stetson after shave.

Good article, Catgirl!

Most people who have MCS or other problems with scents also have MCAS.

try a cruise ship where women take a bath in the heaviest of perfumes. the halls and elevators would reek of it. even the blasted dining room.

I'd go walk outside to get sea air.

I can only tolerate the lightest of perfumes. and most times none at all.

it's the cigarette smoke that gets me.

do not look back when the only course is forward

Thanks Lymetoo!

Randi, OMG! Not good. We recently took a cab and it said smoke free on the door, but we got in it and it smelled like someone dowsed themselves with perfume. It was horrible. I told my husband that was it, no more cabs. I wonder if uber does perfume/smoke free.
