product may not stay: method antibac kitchen cleaner, lemon verbena

I have found the worst smell, and it is Method Antibac Kitchen Cleaner, Lemon Verbena scent.

Method Antibacterial Spray, Kitchen, Lemon Verbena, 28 oz Bottle - MTH01151
I don't know what this stuff smells like, but it ain't lemon verbena.  There is something so awful about an odor that is supposed to smell clean, but in fact smells foul and putrid.  And it lingers on and on--I used it once to attempt to clean my oven (was unsuccessful), and the smell stayed in our house for a month.  I have held onto it out of guilt, but this morning I used it to clean the toilet, which I realize is in direct violation of the product's stated purpose as a kitchen cleaner, but it also says antibac, so . . .

Anyway, I can't bear it any longer.  The whole house smells rancid and sour now, after just a few little squirts onto the toilet.  To the dump with it!  Product may not stay.

I recently felt I was being followed around by the smell of ant poison. It was so persistent that I actually wondered if I had some kind of brain tumor that caused me to smell ant poison all the time. Then one day I was putting on mascara and the ant poison smell was particularly strong. I sniffed the mascara wand. Awful. Who approved that product? Why would you bother to scent mascara? And why would you give it that particular scent? (I had an appointment to visit your blog.)

There was something so delightful about reading the words "ant poison." Ant poison! And that it was your mascara. Maybe the ant poison smell is to mask an even worse underlying smell?
