How to Deodorize Your Home for Good in Four Easy Steps

Nobody wants to mention having to deal with bad smells at home, but it happens even with the best of us – and that talking about them is important.

This is because these bad odors can be caused by all kinds of problems, from animals to food, and that air freshener isn’t the one-stop solution but only masks the smell.

Instead of doing that, you will need to solve these problems by getting rid of the cause – and that usually means cleaning up your home.

Here’s how you can deodorize your home for good:

            1. Get rid of kitchen odors

Your kitchen trash can will easily be the cause of bad odors from all kinds of food spills and waste. Aside from keeping the lid covered, you should also clean out the inside every other time using laundry detergent and water, and allow it to air dry fully.

Another thing that you should do is to line the inside of your trash can with a garbage bag. This will keep the inside clean while making it easy for you to keep your trash in one place.

            2. Clear out your closet

Old furniture and cabinets can exhibit that familiar musty smell. To get rid of it, simply crinkled up newspaper dipped in white vinegar inside each musty drawer or furniture compartment.

Leave it for a few days to absorb the odor and get rid of the smell. You can also keep it from smelling by placing scented dryer sheets or silica gel packs to draw out moisture (just replace the latter every other month).

            3. Keep your toilet clean

When it comes to cleaning toilets, all you need to do is follow this simple rule on thumb: clean them up using toilet bowl cleaner before they start looking dirty. You should also add a half-cup of bleach to the water after cleaning.

Scrubbing the grouting using water mixed with a small amount of bleach can also do a lot to get rid of any musty smells or odors.

            4. Freshen up your bedroom

There’s nothing worse than coming back to your room only to have it smell like a dead animal decomposing. Fortunately, you can get rid of this smell by simply pouring distilled white vinegar in a plastic container and punch a few holes in its lid before leaving it in your room for a few days.

While it might start to smell like salad at first, the odors will subside after a few days because of the vinegar absorbing the odors.

You can also do this for your living room if you somehow find any strange odors that still fill up the area no matter how hard you try to look for the source.
