Does anybody else crave the smell of bleach? It started with my first pregnancy and never went away...I just want to snort it up my nose! (I don't, though.) Also, are we all women? Are there any men who get weird about ice?

Um... YES!!! I love it. Finally someone that loves it too! The best time to smell it is when you are moving the clothes from the washer to the dryer because you get to smell it without the fumes! I can't get enough of it. It's not just bleach for me though. It's my Fabuloso brand floor cleaner, bleach, dish soap, hand soap, dishwasher detergent, etc... I feel silly sometimes because I will find myself sniffing at this stuff without even realizing it. I wonder what causes this and if it has anything to do with my overwhelming need to crunch on ice 24/7.

I too have similar cravings, cleaning products, as well as crunching ice. I looked it up and found something called pica. Not sure if you've heart of it, but symptoms can be shown in craving non-food items and it usually means you have an iron deficiency. I haven't been checked lately, but in the past have been anemic. This all started a few months ago, have you found any results with taking iron or anything?

I also love the smell of bleach. I esp. love how I smell when I get out of a pool, and cant resist smelling my hands.
