The Magic Formula

Have you seen this commercial?



I hadn't when I stumbled upon this article from Lifehacker (here's the video that accompanied it)...



I was curious. It seemed simple enough to me, so I thought I'd make up a batch and check it out. I finally got around to it this past week. I picked up all the ingredients (except for the essential oil which I ordered online) at the dollar store, making it a very cheap project.

Turns out, it works as advertised. I was surprised. Pleased. And I thought I'd share with you all, in case anyone wants to try it themselves.

And, of course, I must update you on my progress with my backdrop. Three weeks ago...


Today...


If all goes according to plan (and that's a very big if), I should have a final picture to show you next week.

Have you ever tried something you found on the internet? Did it work as expected?

  1. Cheap is good.
    I'll try a recipe I've found online - does that count?

  5. you will never be a Hollywood star if you start with pooping videos :) And those 'scientists' in the video don't look trustworthy to me :)

  6. LOL; I hadn't heard of the "poop sprays". Good for you for trying to make a batch of your own and then seeing that it actually worked.

    You are making fantastic progress!

    1. I hadn't heard of them either until the Lifehacker article popped up in my FB feed. I couldn't contain my curiosity.

  7. I have heard of this poop spray and that commercial brings all my nightmares to life. I have recurring dreams of being on the toilet in public....ewwwww:) I will have to try the ingredients and give it a shot. On a totally other note-you are really coming along with your knitting

  8. My mom made the Santa grapes with strawberry and marshmallow hats that were all over facebook at Christmas. Sampling them was the closest I've come...

    1. I had not seen those. But sampling them counts.
