So I know that aerosol sprays and air fresheners are bad for birds but what ab stuff like deodorant and lotion should I worry ab that too? I'm probably just overthinking this but oh well lol

Re: Smells?

Almost any commercial product with fragrance (smells) is not good for your parrot. Likely not good for you either, but their resperatory system is extremely sensitive.

Re: Smells?

Don’t forget fabric softeners! Wife thinks they make the clothes smell like the great outdoors! They choke me up and give me a sore throat!

Re: Smells?

hand lotion as long as properly rinsed should be okay, deodorant I would prefer not to need but going out with BO isn't exactly nice, when not going out I wouldn't bother with it, but when going out I'm inclined to spray in a well aired room away from the birds just to make sure there's nothing wrong going into the immediate area.

As Fiboy mentioned with fabric softener I'm a little bad. I have hyper-sensitivity in relation to some issues I have so smells really get up my nose (can't even go near a perfume section of a shop without being in physical pain from the smell) so I only use a small amount of fabric softener, just enough to get a tiny hint of smell
