We all love to clean our bathrooms and house, but sometimes it just doesn’t smell the way we want it to smell after we finish. Sometimes it just need a little extra TLC. In this article, I will show you some smart ways to clean and make your bathroom and home smell spectacular in every way possible. With the high amount of people that will go in and out, you will need to know these cleaning tips and tricks. The bathroom that visitors use will be the worse, so you need to be on top of things to make it as clean as possible because people will tell other people the way your house is.
Using an Air Freshener
Bath and body works do sell some lovely smelling air freshener. It may be a little pricey but you can use it somewhere special in your house. They have different styles to choose from, even one that sprays 2 different fragrances throughout the day and even has a night light built-in. Its call wallflower plugin. Give it a shot and you won’t regret it.
Add Vanilla To Your Lightbulbs In Your Bathroom or anywhere in your house
This is a simple little trick but apply it carefully. Find the safest light in your home that doesn’t heat that much. Add a few drops of vanilla extract to a cotton ball or a cloth and then gently tap the cotton ball on the light bulbs, make sure not to cover it too much. When you flip on the lights, the heat will gently spread the scent, and your home will smell amazing, like when your baking. This will not cause a fire whatsoever because the vanilla will defuse as soon as the bulb gets heated. It’s not a permanent way to make your house or bathroom smell amazing, but its a quick and easy way to do so if your having company over.
If you like the minty smell of your toothpaste and you want your bathroom to smell that way, here is a method, just cut the toothpaste tube 1/4 of an inch on both side at the bottom of it and place it in the toilet tank. This can last up to two months.
If your toilet is clogged and you dont have a plunger, you can panic for a while because who wants to call someone and tell them you clogged the toilet. Just use some plastic food wrap and cover the toilet boil tightly. Go over it 4 times before you try to flush again when you do flush the air that builds up in the toilet will be trapped and then all you need to do is just push the air down and it will work the same as a plunger.
Remove odors permanently from your towels.
A quick fix was to just place your towels in the dryer, but if you want a permanent way to remove those odors and make them smell and feel brand new, then you need to do this twice a month. Start by giving the towels cycle in hot water then sprinkle some baking soda over them. Like a cup, give it a next cycle with hot water and your towels will come out smelling so fresh.
Essential oil in bin
Sprinkle a few drops of essential oil in the garbage bin in your bathroom, by adding some lovely fragrance will help lift any odor that’s remaining after you have done cleaning your bathroom.
Homemade Air freshener
If your a frugal person or just love to do things your self you will love this hack. Get a spray bottle and pour two cups water, one cup alcohol and ten drops of essential oil. Shake it well and there you go, your own homemade air freshener. You can use it like how you use one that you buy.
One day when your not busy and the weather is good just go around your house and collect the blankets, cushion covers and kitchen towels. Use gain fireworks when you’re washing them to give it a massive boost in freshness. This will give your home a clean and litter feeling.
Keeping your Curtain smelling fresh
We are not going to be able to wash our curtains every week, but we want them to smell amazing all the time like you just finish washing them. Mix two cups Gain fireworks in hot water, allow it to dissolve and cool then go around and spray all your curtains with it. For a bonus open the windows afterward and the wind will spread the scent everywhere.
Detergent With Cotton BalL
Due to concerns with the detergent in the toilet tank, I have removed that information base on a Plumber’s advice. So here is a next tip to use the detergent. Get a small jar with two cotton balls inside, pour two or three tablespoons of your favorite detergent on them and place it anywhere in your bathroom. The aroma can last up to three days and it only takes two or three tablespoons of detergent to do the job.
