Gag!

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.

I'm not going to Venezuela. I hate that smell even in small amounts.  That would put me over the edge.

No, I can't sacrifice even for them! It's a deal breaker.

I think everyone has their own sensory perception of clean- for my Momma, it wasn't clean if it didn't smell like bleach!

My Celia uses Pine Sol in some places, bleach in others, and Fabuloso in between. It creates a uniquely clean smell, and when I come home I always bask in a house that has been freshly Celiacized!
