Japanese sewage trucks will no longer smell shitty, thanks to a new technology incorporated in their systems.
According to RocketNews24, four companies based in Osaka recently gathered to develop a way of masking unpleasant odors from vacuum trucks.
The result is a chocolate-like fragrance, the companies said on Thursday. The secret, however, has long served items such as diapers and pet products.
The sweet scent is made possible through the help of Deo Magic, a deodorizer created by Yamamoto Fragrance and Shikibo back in 2011. Now, an oil variant called Deo Magic VC1 is launching this month, priced at 35,000 yen ($344.21) for every 2o-liter (5.3 gallon) can.
Deo Magic will be incorporated into the lubricating oil used by the trucks. Chocolate fragrance is then added to improve the scent.
So far, everyone was happy about the news, especially the truck drivers themselves.
