4 Natural deodorizers for your bathroom

Baking soda, a.k.a. sodium bicarbonate, is a common household item you can easily put to work for you as a natural deodorizer. Along with onions and few other things that are all-natural and make your life a lot better. Read what you can use to make your bathroom smell better:

1. Fresh onions

This option is especially effective for basement bathrooms that don't receive natural air circulation. All you have to do is slice an onion (any bulb onion) in half and place it on a salad dish. You can set the dish with the onion top of it anywhere in the bathroom that's out of the way.

Don't worry. The onion smell doesn't last forever. Let the edible bulb do its work. By the morning, your damp bathroom will odor free.

2. Baking soda

Your mom probably already uses baking soda in her fridge to reduce unpleasant smells from leftovers. All you have to do is open a box and place it behind your toilet bowl. It's a simple solution to your unpleasant bathroom smells.

3. Apple cider vinegar

Do you have a certain spot in bathroom with a foul smell? Try spraying straight, undiluted apple cider on the funky spot. Don't be shy with the spraying. Let the apple cider vinegar sit for 3-5 minutes then wipe it up with paper towels.

4. Lemon juice

This citrus option smells great and smells clean. Here are two of the ways you can lemon juice to work for you:

  • Same approach as apple cider vinegar. Spray straight lemon juice on the smelly areas of the bathroom. Let the lemon juice sit for 3-5 minutes then wipe it up with paper towels.
  • Slice a lemon in half. Rub down your toilet bowl and bathtub with the lemons. Doing so will break down any gunk built up on your bathroom fixtures and give your bathroom the lemony-fresh scent it deserves.
