Neutralising cat odour with lemons!

My daughter sent this: http://www.rd.com/home/34-reasons-to-load-up-on-lemons/

34 uses for the humble lemon,  plus this:
Neutralize cat-box odor
You don’t have to use an aerosol spray to neutralize foul-smelling cat-box odors or freshen the air in your bathroom. Just cut a couple of lemons in half. Then place them, cut side up, in a dish in the room, and the air will soon smell lemon-fresh.

And so, I wasted no time. Right after work, I went to buy 12 lemons, and...

Does Indy approve?

Er...apparently not, because he bit me after sniffing the lemons and my pants. Maybe it wasn't the lemons, maybe it was the smell of Heidi on my pants!


Malaysians are naturally kiasu, I guess.
(The above is only from one lemon.)

The tip said to cut in half, but I figured cutting into slices increases the surface area, so shouldn't it work better, I mean, logically, right?

Hmm....am I imagining it, or does the room now smell fresher after 10 minutes of having the air lemon-scent infused?


I'd need someone with a keen nose to come visit and check out the room!

My cats went to sniff at the "deodoriser" and were quite happy with it! LOL!
