Puke/sick.

I can deal with blood and poo, however I dread having to clean up puke/sick after the pets have thrown up (or myself on the rare occasions).

some exhust fumes smell ok - have a sniff off a well cared for/new diseal van as it drives past and it smells like detergent


now things i don't like
the smell of English muffins in the toaster - i can't stand it and have to go outside till its over

rubbish trucks and the tip (dump) gross me out big time !

cat or dog poop - lucky if someone needs to use the facilities in the middle of the night we have lavender clumping kitty litter -

human sick
ashtrays

any kind of peach air freshner - my mum had it in the house when my dad was dying so its an association thing i guess

alyssum - the little flower/weed - it gives me asthma and makes me feel dreadful and its such a cloying sweetness its revolting

definatly unwashed bodies especially if its only 9am - no excuses just gross

the sewage plant and sewage ponds
the freezing works (large scale industrial slauter house)
a wool scour - oh poo that is so bad, i worked for a rural supply company who owned a wool scour - poo that was a dreadful smell
a tannery - poo! smells like a wool scour

rubber - like a whole pile of gumboots (rubber boots) and that's even before foot odur - just the smell of all that new rubber makes me feel like i can't breeth

rotton potatos
once you have smelt it you'll never forget it - when i was working for that rurual suoply company i worked in the garden centre. we would would get truck loads of sacks of seed spuds to be broken down into 3kg bags to sell to the home gardener
one year the Marris anchor got unloaded in the rain - i had to go through them and pick out the rotton ones - the smell got under my fingernails

This will turn into a rant... :lol:

… but I HATE those plug-in 'air fresheners' :mad:


Seriously, WTF?

You presumably think your house/apartment/other dwelling smells (??) so rather than clean it thoroughly to remove the apparent source and open the windows to air the building regularly, the better option is to try to mask it by filling your abode with microscopic, air-borne, unknown man-made chemicals (because 'secret formula' :roll:) that you and your family and guests have no choice but to inhale into your lungs, transfer into your blood stream, and then pump round your body to every single cell within it?

That is frankly insane.

It's no wonder us humans are experiencing record levels of cancer if seemingly no-one gives a toss about what artificial and entirely unnecessary chemicals they put into their bodies. :|

Mustard
Mayonnaise
Ketchup
Tartar sauce
Salad dressing
etc.

Even the faintest whiff of vinegar makes me hurl.

wow
i thought that was just me
i hate anything with viniger
a salad is ruined with a dressing that contains any dressing more lemon juice

My other half had an english mum so he likes viniger on his hot chips
its put me right off fish and chips

i have to aleays remember when im out to order everything with no dressing, no sauce of any kind inless its hickory bbq
the number of times a salad has been completly ruined
i also despise all pickles because of the viniger - ill almost spew if i get even a tiny bite of gerkan

and yuck mayo
the worst thing was once i ordered an omlet and it had been spread with mayo before being folded over

ive been known to wash food in my water or make a huge performances of using paper servettes to sponge off mayo if ive forgotten to say no
and i do not hesitate to send stuff back if it arrives with mayo when i remembered to say no

yuck to mustard also

Okay, I'm turning straight and you need to divorce your husband. :kiss2:

We'll live happily ever after ... sans vinegar.

Adding to my list heavy perfumes. Make me ill.

Air fresheners. Any kind. Ugh just awful smelling.

Every product I buy is unscented with a minimal of ingredients.

DH added a smell he loathes. Old Apartment building hallways. Stale and unpleasant.

Subway sandwich shops. I can smell one a mile away when they bake bread. It smells like feet.

Yeast to rise bread dough and foot fungus are probably not that distantly related.

rotten tomatoes (I can't IMAGINE anyone actually picking one up and throwing it, haha. I'd need gloves, a supplied air mask, and a hazmat suit to even consider trying to throw one.)

a dead mouse someplace in the house, especially behind a wall, or thoughtfully tucked under my pillow in mid July by a well-meaning cat

the mercaptan odorant added to natural gas, and other mercaptan chemicals

that decaying pee / poop smell that unsanitary nursing homes have

various road kills decaying on the many rural roads around here

that gawdawful positively gagging odor when the farmers spread that liquid manure they've been collecting all winter (May or may not be the same or an even worse odor than a post above mentioned.)
