When you have some gusts at your home, you probably pray that they don`t use the bathroom, because you are embarrassed of the smell of urine in there. Maybe your boys aim badly when they use the toilet, and this has ruined the bathroom forever. But don`t worry, here we will give you some very simple trick, how to remove and neutralize that awful smell of urine from the bathroom.
Replace the toilet seat and clean periodically:
New toilet set can cost around 10 dollars, so throw away the old smelly toilet seat and put a new one. If you can afford a few more bucks, buy the one with a non-slam lid.
Wash the toilet rug
If your toilet rug is too old, replace it with a new one and wash it from time to time, because small boys will probably pee out of the crack between the bowl and the seat, so pee will run down the toilet on the floor and the rug.
Maintain the caulk around toilet
Have in mind that they don`t last forever. The cracks in the caulk will let the mess fester, creating nasty smell.
For this amazing homemade absorbent you will need:
- Baking soda
- 3-5 cloves
- Glass bottle/jar
- Piece of tulle or some similar fabric.
Instructions: Fill the glass bottle halfway with baking soda, add the cloves and a few drops of lemon essential oil. Place the piece of tulle/fabric inside and fasten in with a tape or a bandage, to make it look more decorative.
This will absorb all the smell from the bathroom, or any other room in your house.
Homemade bathroom cleaner:
This cleaner can be used to mop tile or linoleum floors, but not wood. Piece of advice- test any fabric or carpet first, because the borax can take the color out. This homemade cleaner cannot be stored, so you`ll need to make a fresh one every time you clean. After the cleaning you can rinse it off the floor if you want, even though it doesn`t need rinsing. For preparation you will need:
- ¼ cup of baking soda
- ¼ cup of vinegar
- ½ cup of borax (optional)
- 2 gallons of hot water
- Small squirt of dish washing soap
Instructions: Mix the baking soda and some water to get a paste. Apply in on a sponge and scrub the floor and the base of the toilet with it, as well as the caulk and tile grout. Let it act for couple of minutes, then spray with a 50/50 mixture of vinegar and water. When finished, rinse everything with water.
