False Advertising

I was born in a fishing town and can categorically state that 'Ocean Spray' room freshners do not smell remotely like the ocean.

I was nervous to press the spray button because of the fishy/salty smells that would ensue. What did I get instead!?! Some sickly sweet fragrance!!!

Errrg....

Suddenly everything becomes clear.

Apart from the sweetened air.

Isn't Ocean Spray a cranberry juice drink? That would explain the sickly sweet smell.

That's because only dirty lazy fish actually get caught. Nice clean fresh fish, who are too smart to be caught, all smell lovely.

Also living in a fishing villages teaches you one thing about fish. Fresh fish don't smell. Fish only start to smell when they start to rot and break down. So if you can smell your fish then it's going funny.

room freshners are bad for your nose ( and lungs)
use a room deoderizer instead which kills the smells instead of masking them.

th detool one is GREAT and doesn't set of most allergy sufferers, and leaves behind no smell as oppsed to whatever the-smell-was-covered-up-by-sickly-sweet-fake-smell

Re: Off topic
The dot com site has been having a few problems in the last week. We're changing servers and the old server (ISP?) has been screwing around so it's been intermittant. It should be back on line later.

In the meantime please use http://www.leisuregames.co.uk as that also has our site up. We own both .co.uk and .com names and they are the same site.

Any problems please let me know.

For a short period of time I worked in a factory that made, among many other things, air fresheners. The ones we made the most of were give away types that companies would order with their logo, name or whatever on.

Man those things reeked. Especially considering the fact that we were dealing with the concentrated liquid that was put on with a little rolling paintbrush like thing.

I'll take Ocean Fresh over "Fabuloso!" anyday.

I have to agree ocean spry does nto smell of the mix of salt, sewerage, used condoms and fish.
