i was "perfumed" at Target!

March 7th, 2015 at 11:46 pm

I got "perfumed" at Target today. It was from pushing the cart (it's my hands that smell). It's so strong that even after using germ stuff, washing my hands three times, rubbing with a lemon... they still smell! I am so grumpy! Now I'm going to have to sniff the cart handles before I use them.

Anyway, I bought F some shorts (we are going to CA for Spring Break and I realized her summer clothes don't fit!) $8, some foil and kleenex and wipes.

I also went to the grocery store this week and had a pretty good week. Total was about $75.

I am going to go wash my hands with baking soda; be right back.

I'm back; it didn't work.

Dinner tonight is Apricot Chicken with Basmati Rice and Broccoli. I'm going to go get started on the sauce to take my mind off my stinky hands.

    Ugh. That is annoying, someone must have put A LOT on!

    Do you have any stainless steel? It is supposed to take the smell of things like onions or garlic off your hands so maybe it will work for the perfume.

    That's funny that you mention that! Knowing the garlic trick, I rubbed my hands all over our stainless steel kitchen faucet, but unfortunately it didn't work. Here's what ended up working: made dinner, washed hands repeatedly, made a cake, washed hands again... etc.

    Target and many grocery chain stores have a 'wipe' dispenser near cart rows to wipe the handles. Isn't amazing how fast our DKs outgrow the previous season's clothes. How wonderful to spend spring break in CA.

    Try lemon!

    Oops. I see that you did. I can't imagine how a fragrance can withstand all that!

    Just imagine if you had had to stand next to that person in line ...

    Friday when NE and I were in Russ's picking up ingredients, it smelled strongly of cigarette smoke. The entrance/by the registers REEKED. Not exactly a smell conducive to shopping for food!

    It was truly incredible! FrugalTexan - I feel your pain! When I was living in Dublin, the cigarette smoke in restaurants was terrible but they enacted the smoking ban while I was living there; it was so great!
