Home is where we feel fresh and relaxed. If that very place has any lingering bad odour, it can really disturb our lifestyle. Exhaust fans and windows can do only so much about a bad odour. Even with air circulation, if the odour source still remains in the house, it’s of no use.
For the smells that make you run out of the house holding your nose, try the following tricks:
Identify the source! It’s got to be something hidden somewhere in some corner you have never seen before. If the source is in a room, burning candles and spraying air fresheners will only temporarily solve the problem. Once you’ve located the source, get rid of it.
Pour a cup or two of vinegar at the bottom of the dishwasher and wash the foul smell away. Vinegar is an excellent smell remover. Be prepared to smell vinegar for an hour so. But hey, it solves the bigger problem! As for the other temporary kitchen odours, opening the windows and the exhaust fans can help to solve a majority of the problem. Follow up with a spray of the air freshener.
The door of the front loading washing machine seals so tightly that the air never circulates inside the washing machine causing mould to grow inside. Regularly clean the washing machine by running a washing cycle with only two cups of bleach and hot water.
Much like the washing machine, even the fridge has a tendency to smell when kept closed for a long period of time. The age-old solution to tame fridge odours is to open a box of baking soda and stick it on a shelf or along the back.
If you have pets look out for areas where they may have soiled the floor or carpet. Most of the smell is caused by bacteria. Vinegar being a highly acidic substance kills the bacteria and thus the foul smell disappears. Mixing one portion of vinegar with three portions of water and rubbing it on the carpet can be rid you of the smell after a wash. Followed by this, you should probably train your pet not to pee/soil on the carpet.
Pet odour can also be controlled using activated charcoal. Activated charcoal is activated carbon which is capable of absorbing a wide range of odours. The activated carbon specially designed to absorb pet odours can be bought and kept in the vicinity of pet litter to neutralize the smell to a great extent.
