Someone might have already thought of this already, so if they have just ignore me, lol.
Anyway this is to help odor in public.  I bought some of those little breath freshners, I got the sweet breath spearmint kind, but others would probably work.  THey are small and you can keep them in your pocket or purse.  But you have to spray it BEFORE you use the barthroom, it doesn't work as well if you spray it after.  Plus afterwards your hands would be all dirty and then you would get it all dirty.  Anyway, I tried it at home a few times first and then used it the first time in public and it did really help.

many companies sell products you can put into the bag to help the odor. Hollister also has sprays made especially for this problem. They come in unscented and apple.

Use a squirt of 3% hydrogen peroxide in your bag every time you empty (no stronger than the 3%) and you won't even need a spray :)

I have spent a fortune over the years on Hollister M9 deoderant. It does work well. But, someone on this forum told me about using Listerine(or generic) mouthwash. It works great!!!! Though I use it a little more often because it doesn't last more than one or two empties, it literally saves me a bundle. I'll NEVER go back to M9 drops.

I use the mouthwash in mine too, when I remeber, it doesn't seem to make much difference. I have that spray for the air the M9 but you can't fit it in your pocket. And I have never tried those drops, I had some gel caps and some kind of liquid stuff, but wasn't that impressed with those either.
SJ30-I just went into the bathroom (I was in babies r us actually, lol) sprayed the breath freshner in the air, then empited the bag, and there was no smell.
I tired it at home first, and when I tried spraying it after I empited the bag it didnt' work as well. And like I said before, after you empty the bag your hands are all dirty, so you don't want that on your spray that you will be putting back in your pocket, lol. That stuff is cheap too!

I just realized something else about this that is good. Those breath freshner things have alchol in them, so if the seat is really icky, you can just spray a little on there and then wipe it off and the seat will be sanatized!
