Wearing clothes and sleeping in sheets reeking of this horribleness became a daily battle between breathing and retching.
Three loads of laundry later, I returned to lavender, this time in a self-dispensing container that I don't have to lift every time I use it. Yay!
I also re-washed all of my clothes and bedding to remove the foul "moonlight" miasma.
There is no way to predict what will and will not offend one's nostrils.
The best advice I have is that as soon as you realize something is afoul, get rid of it. (Goodbye cinnamon raisin bagels.☹ Goodbye fruity soaps. ☹ I miss you.)
Also, if something already works, stick with it. (I love you, lavender laundry detergent!)
