Need to freshen up the air in your bathroom? Here are some helpful tips to get you started.

  • Use a commercial product such as ‘Poo-Pourri’ or ‘Lemon Doo Drops Toilet Odour Eliminating Tablets’ before you use the washroom. These products will help combat any bathroom odours.
  • Make your own odour eliminator. In a spray bottle, combine 1tsp. of rubbing alcohol with 30-40 drops of lemongrass or jasmine essential oils.  Mist the toilet bowl with the solution before and after you use the washroom.
  • Light a match and blow it out. This age-old trick works wonders because the smell of burning sulfur from the match, is stronger than any other smell. Just make sure you don’t do this in a public restroom, or the smoke alarm might go off!
  • Interestingly enough, flight attendants use the aroma of freshly brewed coffee to cover up odours in an airplane washroom.  The same can be done at home. Grab a mug of freshly brewed coffee and leave it on your washroom vanity until the aroma has freshened up the air.
