How to prevent bad odors
To avoid unwanted odors in the bathroom, it’s important to tackle them at the source and stop them before they start. Follow these simple tips for overall upkeep and to help make bathroom refreshing less of a time-consuming task:
- Switch out hand towels every 2–3 days. Your hand towels are a heavy traffic item in your bathroom. They are used frequently and are likely drying hands that aren’t completely clean. When your towels are constantly damp from slick hands, they may begin to smell. Prevent this by switching them out often. Shower towels should be switched out often as well—every 3−4 days to prevent a mildewy smell.
- Clean your shower drain often. Most of us, especially those with long hair, have likely experienced the panic when the shower/bathtub won’t drain. Once the water finally goes down, it leaves the bottom of the tub grimy and dirty and leaves you with more of a mess to clean up. On top of that, the drain may begin to smell bad. Prevent this by keeping on top of cleaning the hair and other gunk out of your drain often. Get a drain protector for an even easier cleanup!
- Take the trash out weekly or as needed. Stop bad odors from overtaking your bathroom by frequently taking the garbage out. Occasionally wipe out the bin with Thieves® Household Cleaner to enhance the fresh smell and clean away any messes that may be trapped.
- Wipe the floor often, especially near the toilet. The area around the toilet tends to be a breeding ground for bad odors and messes. Spray some cleaner on a rag to cleanse this area once a week to prevent the typical bathroom smell that we all know so well.
These simple steps are essential in the upkeep of your bathroom and can be the difference between spending 30 minutes quickly refreshing the room or spending hours scrubbing away.
