    Question for the Anthea Turners of HUKDs!

    Very weird question, but I have one of those L'occitane air freshener diffuser things... The one with the bottle and the wooden sticks that draw the fragrance out.
    The fragrance has run out and I want to change it, but the sticks and bottle still smell of the old fragrance. I've tried soaking them in water but it just won't go!! How do I get rid of the smell?!!

    As I remember, it was about £15 and considering the fragrance oil thing lasts about 6 weeks, a bit OTT to buy a new one every time!
    There must be a way of getting the smell out?! I'm sure I can get replacement wooden sticks, but the bottle will still stink!!

    Once Anthea Turner gets in your house, you'll never get her out.
    Can you not sue the parent company?

    didn't know they were that expensive! have you tried bicarbonate of soda? that's supposed to get rid of fridge odours, etc so it may work, worth a try. fill the bottle with it and leave it for a day and see what happens

    If its oil based then perhaps try rinsing the bottle out with fairy liquid and then if any residue is still left inside then consider steam cleaning the bottle, if you have one of those handheld steam cleaners.

    Well even if it doesn't work you can at least have a swig of vodka to drown your sorrows. :thumbsup:
