Smelly bathrooms are off putting, to say the least. When you walk into a public restroom and are hit with the stench of… well… you know, it is not the biggest surprise, it’s a public bathroom after all. But when you walk into your own bathroom and the smell is off, well that is a major problem that you need to resolve. Having a foul-smelling restroom is a major no-no for any homeowner and you should be maintaining a nice smelling restroom. Here are a few ways that you can keep your bathroom always smelling nice.
Clean it Regularly
This should go without saying, but you should be cleaning your bathroom regularly. Cleaning your bathroom regularly involves cleaning it at least once a week, as well as any time there is visible mess in the bathroom. When you leave dirt, mold, or anything else to fester in your bathroom, you are offering it the opportunity to develop an unpleasant smell that may be difficult to eliminate. Do yourself a favor and clean your bathroom regularly, using soaps and cleaning supplies that smell pleasant.
Bathrooms are particularly humid places, thanks to the showering and other frequent uses of hot water that leads to humidity developing. And humidity has the unfortunate side effect of making bad smells stronger. Not only that but humidity allows for the growth of molds and bacteria that add unpleasant smells to the mix in your bathroom. Bathroom fans pull bad smells out and bring in better air. If your bathroom doesn’t already have a fan, then one of the best things you can do to make it smell better is to have one installed right away. The investment will be worth it for the improvement in smell you will notice.
Invest in Odor Sprays
If the first two tips don’t solve your bathroom smell woes, then you should get a few odor sprays for your restroom. There are many commercially available bathroom scent sprays that are specifically designed to improve the smell of bathrooms. You can get them unscented, to simply mask whatever scents are unpleasant, or in great smelling flavors like vanilla, citrus, cinnamon, and dozens of others. Look at your local pharmacy or grocery store and you will find tons of options. Spraying a little bit every time you use the restroom can help save everyone’s noses.
Bathroom smells are truly terrible. Nobody wants to have a poor smelling bathroom, and yet bathrooms tend to develop unpleasant smells over time. Make sure that you are following these three tips to ensure that your bathroom is always smelling fresh.
