Air Freshener for Stinking Work Shop?
Ho Boy, I did it yesterday. I was ripping a piece of CDX plywood on my TS against the fence to reduce the thickness & I was about halfway through the length when the blade/plywood really started to overheat. Now, before I go any further I have to admit that I was derelict & knew better & the blade (Carbide 60T) was gummed up & I shouldn't have used it, but I did, I wanted to complete the cut so I forced it on: what a dummy! Anyway, the burning stench was overwhelming. I tried to exhaust the odor with fans from my workshop, around & up a flight of stairs to the garage. Too little, too late.
My wife came home, she had to go to the finished lower level & check out (as in admire) the new furniture we just purchased throughout the area. This area is right next to the workshop & is separated only by a door. Whammo! She immediately blew a fuse & I've been on the receiving end ever since. Even a nice Valentine's card didn't lower the volume.
So, what's a guy to do? Keep a spray can of air freshener, or incense (LOL), on hand for such "emergencies"? Now, I know you guys are all pros, but some of you must have made a mistake or two during your careers to cause the air in your shop to foul, and I'm not referring to a natural expulsion of odiferous vapor fragrance either.
If you have found air freshener to work, which variety worked best? Not looking for something sweet & purty, just a neutralizer - maybe something like a grilled hamburger. LOL
I need to salvage Valentines Day if you know what I mean.
