Let's be real — going to the bathroom in public can be pretty nerve-wracking, but Poo-Pourri's latest campaign is here to put all your poop fears to rest with none other than Queer Eye's Jonathan Van Ness.

In classic JVN fashion, the grooming guru uses his bubbly personality and contagious positivity in the commercial to show that there's no shame in being "an incredible person with a foine working digestive system," especially when you have Poo-Pourri Before-You-Go Toilet Spray handy. According to JVN, the spray uses a mix of essential oils to trap odor in the toilet — and just like that, your poop problems are solved.

"I love the idea of de-stigmatizing things that have shame attached to them," Van Ness said in a statement. "I've dealt with poo shame myself and this campaign was a fun way to instill confidence in others. People poop, and sometimes you feel weird about pooping, but you just gotta go!"

Ready to go to the bathroom with JVN confidence? Poo-Pourri comes in different scents like lavender vanilla and original citrus, in full and travel sizes. There are also two new limited-edition fall scents — pumpkin chai and wild pear — available on the Poo-Pourri website.
