Dealing with Latrines

Dealing with latrines came up today and Marc Spera, the OSR program director gave a suggestion that he picked up from a previous camp:

A Scoutmaster that worked for a fragrance company would bring a collection of very strong fruit-flavored balms with him to camp.  If a kid wouldn’t use the latrine because it smelled bad he’d give a dab of a fruit under the Scout’s nose.  The balm was strong enough to knock out the kid’s sense of smell for as long as he was using the latrine.

I thought this was a neat trick but even better was the term Marc used for this maneuver:  The fruity Sanchez.
