How to freshen up and make bathrooms smell better?

I'm looking for a way to freshen up my bathroom toilet. Is there anything that disperses odors and makes the whole place seem fresher?

I want to leave a lasting impression on my guests when they use the bathroom.

After all, I've heard people do judge you not by the quality of your house, but the cleanliness of your bathroom.

I would appreciate any help, tips or tricks I can get.

by: Mark Bartholomew

Toilets are without a doubt one of the toughest places to clean in your home. Not only do you want to keep your bathroom clean but you also want to keep it organized and odor-free. Here are some tips that you can consider -

1. You can use a scented soy candle in your toilet. Light the candle before using the toilet.
2. Air fresheners will keep the bathroom smelling nice even when you’re not using it.
3. Placing a small house plant in the bathroom will result in less dusting and keep the bathroom feeling fresh and clean.
4. A mixture of pine, rose petals, spices, and citrus peels smell natural

I make my own toilet bowl fizzies. Here’s a simple recipe I found:

1) Add 1 cup baking soda, 1/2 cup citric acid, and 40 drops lemon essential oil to a mixing bowl. Mix well, breaking up any clumps with the back of your spoon.

3) Scoop fizzy mixture into silicone ice cube tray and press firmly into each opening. One batch should yield about 10-12 toilet cleaning fizzies.

Great Way to Freshen up Bathroom
by: Daniel De León

Keeping my bathroom clean is a very high priority for my family. I always want to leave a good impression on my guests and the bathroom is one of the most important places to keep clean. Besides the standard twice a week rinse and bleach cleaning routine, I would really recommend using some kind of fresh scent bathroom product.

Recently, my friend introduced me to these toilet gel stamps that just make my bathrooms smell AMAZING! They are called the 'Simple Life Toilet Gel Stamps.' They automatically clean your toilet every time you flush and leaves your bathroom in this fresh floral scent. I've gotten quite a lot of compliments about them so I would highly recommend you try some yourself. Alternatively, 'Scrubbing Bubbles' offers the same type of product, but I think their version is too much of a bleach scent so I still prefer the 'Simple Life' brand.

How to Freshen a Bathroom
by: Tara

To freshen up a bathroom toilet, each week pour 1 cup of baking soda into the bowl to keep it fresh. And once a month or so pour a half gallon of white vinegar into the bowl to keep it ring-free.

Let it soak overnight before flushing. And whether they smell or not, bring in fresh replacement towels every three days.

To disperse odors and make the bathroom seem fresher, place a scented fabric softener sheet in the bathroom trash can.
Happy entertaining!
