So you’re done cleaning and organizing your bathroom, and now it’s time to freshen up the scent in your bathroom. Keeping your bathroom naturally fresh makes it more clean and welcoming. So whether you’re having a guest over or it’s just your family, there are plenty of ways to achieve this.
And you don’t have to spend a ton of money on cleaners that’ll bring harmful chemicals into your home. There are plenty of ways to use non-toxic ingredients to clean and bring out a pleasant scent. So check them out, try them, and let me know what you think!
Drops of Essential Oil Inside the Toilet Paper Roll
Whenever you need to change the toilet paper roll in your bathroom, try using an essential oil, like lavender, and put a few drops inside the roll. A couple of drops will do and it’ll make your bathroom smell fresh all day long. Now that’s super easy!
DIY Toilet Bomb
Did you know that with just some baking soda, water, and citric acid, you can effortlessly make a DIY toilet bomb? Here’s how: just mix a 1/2 cup of baking soda with a 1/2 cup of citric acid in a bowl and give it a good stir until it’s well mixed.
Add the water in a spray bottle (since you’ll only need a small amount) until you reach the desired consistency. Put them in a silicon mold (or ice tray) and allow to sit overnight. In the morning, you’ll have a bomb ready to clean your toilet.
Use a Plate or Jar of Lemon Slices
I think this is the easiest so far from the list. All you have to do is leave a plate or jar of lemon slices, and let the citrusy scent fill the room. The lemons will make your bathroom smell fresh and neutralize odors. Just remember to change the lemon slices once a week before they go bad.
Homemade Trashcan Deodorizer
Baking soda doesn’t just make toilet bombs, but trashcan deodorizers as well. With relatively the same process as the previous DIY mixture, you’ll just need a mixture of baking soda and essential oil. Once it’s set and looks like a tab, throw it in your trash can, and you’re done. You can also do the same for almost all the trash cans that you have in your home.
Essential Oil Diffusers
Speaking of essential oils, here’s another way to use them. You just have to fill a spray bottle with water, a few drops of essential oil, add some lemon (optional) and spray around. Spray it on your folded towels or hand towels by the sink. It’s super easy to make!
Hang a Eucalyptus Bunch in Your Shower
This trick will definitely make your bath time and showers more relaxing (as well as make your bathroom smell good). Just simply hang a bunch of eucalyptus around the shower head. The steam and any hot water that gets on it will help bring out the smell (or you can dampen it with hot water when first hanging the branches). The natural oil from the leaves gives an amazing aromatherapy that’ll provides some relief to your body.
Not only does it make your bathroom smell good, but it can also benefit your health as well. Seriously impressive!
Add Some Air Purifying Plants
Another natural and easy method to make your bathroom smells fresh and clean up is by putting air purifying plants into it. Potted plants like bamboo palm, dracaena, peace lily and more are a great indoor plant that when placed in bathrooms or laundry rooms helps removes mold spores and purify air cleanliness. The benefits are endless, so why not try this tip out.
Wipe Out Toilet Crevices
There’s no doubt that tiny crevices in your toilet can be the cause for bad odors in your bathroom. So definitely make sure you clean them up! Lift up the toilet seat and wipe out all the dirt using a microfiber cloth. Disinfect and rinse out. It’s just that simple!
DIY Poop Spray
Thankfully there’s a trick that’ll help you eliminate this bad odor. You just have to mix rubbing alcohol with a few drops of essential oil in a spray bottle and give it a good shake.
Light a Scented Candle
Grab your lighter or matches and light those scented candles. The heat and the smoke coming from the candles will help neutralize odors in your bathroom. Plus, it’s a great way to create a relaxing ambiance for when you’re having a bath or shower. Just make sure not to not leave burning candles unattended.
Although this room might be the hardest to keep smelling fresh, these tips and tricks will definitely help you out. They’re easy, fast, and effective ideas that won’t break your bank. So implement them in your next bathroom cleaning and let me know what you think!
