Remove your toilet seat and clean it thoroughly
If you want to really give your toilet seat a deep clean, then unscrew your toilet seat and remove it. Spray the toilet seat with a disinfectant spray and let it sit for 5 to 10 minutes. Use a damp cloth to wipe the toilet seat off.
Deep clean your toilet bowl with vinegar and baking soda
Do you have stains in your toilet bowl that just won’t go away? Pour white vinegar into a spray bottle and spray it all around the toilet bowl. Dump 1 tablespoon of baking soda into the toilet bowl and let it fizz up. Use a toilet brush to scrub the walls of the toilet bowl to loosen up the tough stains and flush when done.
Pour fabric softener in the toilet tank
To give your toilet a fresh smell every time you flush, pour a capful of fabric softener into the toilet tank. When you flush the fabric softener will come down and release a pleasant smell.
Soak your toilet brush in Pine-Sol
Sometimes your toilet brush can begin to smell after you’ve used it to clean the toilet. When this happens, some Pine-Sol into the toilet brush base holder and let the toilet brush soak for a while.
Add a few drops of essential oils to your toilet bowl
Before you do the #2, sprinkle a few drops of lavender essential oil into the toilet to mask the smell. You can also sprinkle a few drops of essential oil into the toilet bowl after you flush.
Use shaving cream to get rid of the urine smell in your bathroom
If you just can’t seem to get rid of the flagrant smell in your bathroom, it may be coming from urine getting soaked into your floor tiles. To get rid of this smell, completely cover your bathroom floor in shaving cream. Leave the shaving cream alone for a few hours before cleaning it up.
Empty the bathroom trash
Get into the habit of dumping the bathroom trash can when it’s full to prevent any bad smells from forming. You can even place a cotton ball drenched in essential oils at the bottom of the trash can before you put in a new trash bag to help cover the stench.
