3 Ways to Get Rid of Foul Odours at Home

It is difficult to eliminate foul odour inside your home when you can’t identify its source. The good news is that you don’t have to suffer with the stink as there are simple ways to keep your house smelling fresh. Check out the following:

Be Bin Smart
Since your rubbish bin is used to stash household waste, it’s no surprise that it’s often the culprit when it comes to sources of funky household fumes. While it’s inevitable that foul smells will waft up from your bin every now and then, there are a few ways you can prevent gross garbage odours from completely taking over your cooking space and surrounding area.

Removing rotting rubbish as soon as it starts to smell bad is the first step in the battle against stinky bins, followed by giving your bin a thorough clean at least once a week. Using scented garbage bags will also help your bin smell fresh … well, as fresh as can be, anyway. Source: Domain

Deodorize the Fridge
The age-old solution to tame fridge odors is to open a box of baking soda and stick it on a shelf or along the back. Change it annually and keep it away from vegetables since the sodium bicarbonate in the baking soda can cause leafy veggies to wilt quickly. Sodium bicarbonate has a unique chemical property that attracts and absorbs odors. Source: Gizmodo

Maintain General Cleanliness
Wash. Clean hard surfaces regularly. Glossy paint, hard flooring, countertops, sinks and tables with soap and water or a mild cleaner that is appropriate for the surface being cleaned. Using a mixture of equal parts white vinegar and water, you can create your own cleaner that is environmentally friendly, inexpensive and effective for all surfaces. Lemon, substituted for the vinegar, also has antibiotic properties. For those areas where odors can really accumulate, such as bathrooms and kitchens, a cleaning solution may be more effective in removing those really tough odors. Bleach whitens and it is also effective in killing and removing mold spores. Source: Freshome
