Here are 5 quick tips on how to remove odor while cleaning your house.
The rainy climate of Vancouver has us closing our windows, unfortunately this also has us trapping in funky odors.
Grease in the kitchen? The smell of grease trapped in a home is unpleasant.
The only way to really remove odor is to remove the grease. Since harsh chemicals are not an option, we recommend that you use pure dish soap. Dish soap is gentle & safe on a variety of surfaces. Pour a dab of undiluted dish soap on a cloth and wipe the greasy areas clean. This is the fastest and easiest way to remove built up grease on a hood fan, back splash and cupboards. Wipe off the dish soap with a clean damp cloth.
Spills in your fridge? Remove Odor in your fridge
Vinegar is very effective in keeping mildew away. Use a water & vinegar solution to clean your fridge, this will prevent mold growth & freshen it up quickly. Use a cotton swab dipped in white vinegar to wipe the seal on your fridge door. To freshen up your fridge with a pleasant smell, dip a few cotton balls in lemon juice and place them in the fridge. If lemon isn’t your thing, then place 1 cup of baking soda in a coffee filter and tie tightly with twine.
Garbage bin and composter odors getting you down?
Cleaning the composter & garbage bin is the first step. To freshen them up you will need to use a solution of 1 tsp lemon juice combined with 1 litre of club soda. Spray the interior of the bin, including small crevices and wipe it down. Repeat this process if necessary.
Bathroom odors can be very embarrassing, but easy to solve.
Club soda works wonders in ridding a bathroom of funky odors. Spray club soda on the bathroom floor around the toilet and let it sit for 15 minutes, then wipe it clean. Use your regular bathroom sanitization cleaning products afterwards to clean the area thoroughly. Repeat this process if necessary. Freshen up and decorate your bathroom with a lemon slice filled vase topped with your favorite flowers.
Musty Dusty odor in your home?
Dust mites stink, literally. Since they love warm and humid conditions, turn down the heat in your home when you leave for work. Direct sunlight kills dust mites, so open your curtains and let the sunshine pour in. Wipe all horizontal surfaces, we like to use a bamboo microfiber cloth. Wipe down your baseboard heaters regularly. Use a HEPA filter vacuum and be sure to pay special attention to vacuuming under and behind furniture. Wash bedding, blankets and pillows regularly. (If possible line dry out in the sun)
