I couldn't decide what to title this post. I've been blogging for so long that I think I've sort of run out of catchy titles. First I thought "6 Easy Steps to Smelling Like a Wet Dog" and then realized since I hadn't actually written it yet, it might be more than 6 steps. Then I thought "How to Create Your Own Perfume" and thought no, that's just sort of mean. So, the official title of this post is:
How To Easily Create Your Own Dog Aroma
1. After washing & drying a load of bath towels, toss them on the couch in the rec room and promptly forget to fold them. For several days. (It's critical that this couch or surface be in an area of your home that you don't see often unless you make a special point to go into that room)
2. Have your kids shove the load of towels to the end of the couch where the dog likes to lay so that he/she lays on them every time she gets up on the couch.
Voila! As you begin to dry off, you'll immediately notice the unmistakable aroma of Wet Dog. If that's not your thing, I strongly suggest a lovely body spray and/or fresh towels (that have not been snuggled by the dog) and a good rinse.
The moral of this story? Unless you really really like smelling like a wet dog, be sure to fold your towels as soon as you remove them from the dryer.
