I just dunked my toddlers VERY poopy diaper in the toilet. Washed my hands with anti bacterial soap. They still smelled. Washed them again... with dish soap. STILL smelly. Washed them AGAIN with anti bacterial soap and HOT HOT HOT water while I sang the birthday song TWICE...

AND THEY STILL SMELL... only now they smell like soap scented poop!

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHH!

First, check your wrists (don't ask how I know).Then, check where ever you put the poop. Flush the toilet again, move the diaper straight into the wash. Second, try running the vent in the bathroom. The smell might not be you. If it is you, try rinsing in vinegar.

Soapy, vinegar, poop.

The tragic thing is I work on the phone and I have to have my hand up by my face so I HAVE to get rid of this smell...

poop stinks!

...and the smell lingers even after several washings, sometimes. Try baking soda if vinegar didn't work.

take a brush and brush all of ur whole nail v. well (getting under the nail too however little u have). with whatever stong smelling thing u have.

and if it still doesnt go then if u like me its in ur head and it will take time to go away. go outside for a walk and see if u can still smell it on ur hands.

maybe some splashed on your upper lip - a poop mustache, if you will? perhaps you should just embrace the poop, become one w/ the smell and quit fighting.
