Mom has no sense of smell and is a bit leaky. We've done a lot to control the situation but she still has a little leakage into her clothes. She sometimes doesn't realize she's got an odor in her slacks and puts them in her closet to wear another day. She's working hard to take the advice of the incontinence clinic and I'm satisfied with that - this is kind of a little thing and I'm not going to make a big deal out of it because she's trying - that's what counts to me.
However, her closet does kind of smell. Not as bad as it used to but it still does. Short-term, I sometimes sneak in there and sniff around for offending items that I can remove, but it embarrasses her so I only do it when I won't get caught. Also, I could probably convince her to let me put in something that absorbs odors or could spray in there with some odor-masking spray.
For the long-term, though, does anyone know if this will cause a problem? Will it get into the paint/drywall and just stay there? I'm also concerned that spraying in there will cause moisture problems in the drywall/paint, so I'm reluctant to use sprays in there.
