Smells from drains
Hair getting caught in the drains and having a small blockage can cause mold and mildew to grow which causes smells to happen.
Big blockages might be best to leave it to top plumbers to help but for small blockages using a small snake is what I use to remove hair clumps from the shower drain.
To clean your drains sprinkle some baking soda around the drain and down the drain then slowly pour some white vinegar down the drain. You’ll see bubbling to happen this will help remove the grime build up.
Follow up with a small scrubby to remove any grime.
Repeat that process until your drain looks clean.
Finish with some boiling water.
Smells around the toilet
To keep your bathroom smelling good eliminating the smells around the toilet is key. Daily I add a toilet fizz bomb to the toilet. This will help your bathroom smelling fresh and clean.
Adding a few drops of essential oils to your toilet brush is also a great way to everything smelling fresh.
Clean your shower and shower liner
Mold loves moisture more than anything else in the world. While you might be paying careful attention to your grout and tiles, it’s easy to overlook the shower curtain – especially as it folded most of the day, making it a welcoming moist, and close environment for mold spread.
To clean your your shower liner add your liner to your washing machine on the gentle cycle. Instead of using soap add some baking soda to the washer. Allow it to run through the full gentle cycle.
For tough mildew stains using a combo of lemon and salt will help. Cut the lemon in half and dip it in salt and rub the stains. This is a quick and easy way to remove those stains.
You’ve located the smell, and it comes from your towel. The reason is simple; if you leave your towel folded after use, it’s likely to stay wet, which over time can develop a typical musty odor. Hanging your towels properly to dry can make a significant difference.
You can also treat the fabric to a first wash with a cup of vinegar added to the washer, and then a seconds wash with a little baking soda. Ventilate on the line to let them dry in the fresh air.
A simple way to make your bathroom smell good is adding a few drops of essential oils to your vent filter.
If you have forced air adding a filter with a few drops of lemon or lavender essential oil to the filter will go a long way in keeping your bathroom smelling fresh.
