Mary, I dont find the same problem with the smell of simple green as
you. I have used it for a while now, and I dont think they have
changed the aroma of it. I know different things , such as smells,
bother different people differently. So I guess as to smells, that
part would be a individual problem. As to the effectiveness of the
product to do what it is suppose to do, that I will say , I think it does ,
and it seems to do it well.
