Floor-cleaning products in Venezuela have ten times the pine fragrance of U.S. floor cleaners. Venezuelan women won’t buy a weaker fragrance. These obsessive homemakers may wet-mop their tile floors twice a day, leaving windows and doors open so the scent can waft out to the street to send the message that their houses are clean.
If this is true, I'm not going there. I hate the way Pine-Sol smells. I can't breathe when someone uses it like they did in the coffee place where I socially knit. Not the smell we want wafting through the air instead of the aroma of coffee.
