Over the last few months, about 270 people have signed a Change.org petition urging Pine-Sol and its parent company, Clorox, to change the scent back. Many more have simply turned to commenting on Facebook to urge the company to change Pine-Sol’s smell back to what it was.
“2014 already is off to a bad start,” one commenter wrote. “BRING BACK MY PINESOL that smells like PINE that is why it’s called PINE SOL. Thank you.”
Unfortunately, making a quick change isn’t that easy. In November, Pine-Sol posted this explanation for the scent change to its Facebook page:
About 200 people commented on that post, many of them still quite angry. One commenter asked why Clorox didn’t buy some land and start growing pine trees itself.
