How to Get Rid of Bathroom Odor

 

 

By Louisa Price

 

Other than the kitchen, the bathroom is one of the most difficult places in your home to get rid of odor, making it a room you don’t want to enter. And, if past methods of bathroom odor removal such as striking a match, spraying vinegar or leaving a bowl of baking soda in your toilet simply don’t measure up, here are a few inexpensive and easy ways to leave your bathroom smelling clean and fresh in no time.

 

Eliminate Bathroom Odors

Maintaining a clean bathroom is your first step to get rid of bathroom odor. As your bathroom is a space with lots of water, it is extremely easy for mold and mildew to accumulate quickly.

 

Cleaning your bathroom once a week goes a long way in bathroom odor removal. You can use an all-purpose cleaner or just bleach diluted with water to clean your bathroom countertop, as well as basin, tub, tiles and even the floor. Don’t forget to get the corners since mold and mildew usually accumulate there.

 

Poor ventilation can cause toilet smell. If your bathroom doesn’t have a fan, consider installing one. It is neither difficult nor expensive to do so. A fan helps circulate air in the bathroom and thus remove toilet smell faster.

 

Another key source of bathroom odor is water that remains in sinks or bathtubs. Very often, drains and pipes get clogged up with hair or other build up. By making sure all the drains are cleared, you can get rid of bathroom odor easily.

 

You can use a plumber’s snake to manually get the gunk out or use commercial products like Draino to dissolve organic materials that are deposited in drains.

 

If there’s no blockage slowing water down, a really cheap and quick way to eliminate bathroom odors is to pour baking soda, white vinegar or bleach down the drain.

 

When the caulk that surrounds sinks, tubs or toilets is old or cracked, it can trap water, moisture and other gunk, causing bathroom odor. Your solution is to remove the old caulk, dry the area and put in fresh caulk.

 

There are several products available in stores which are effective in masking bathroom odor. Lysol, air fresheners or scented candles can neutralize or mask any bad odors you may have in the bathroom.

 

If you use odor eaters, be sure to change it on a regular basis so you can continue to enjoy the fresh scent in your bathroom.
