How to Keep the Bathroom Smelling Fresh

If you notice that you’re always scrunching your nose every time you enter the bathroom, then it’s obvious how badly you need a solution to the odour problem. Take note of these quick fixes:

Turn on the exhaust fan
In fact, wire it to your light switch so it’s always on when the bathroom is in use. It’s the best way to vent moisture that can seep into cracks and crevices and become a breeding ground for mold, mildew bacteria and odor. Source: Home.HowStuffWorks

Eliminate odors
Many people keep a spray bottle on the back of the toilet to freshen the bathroom after use. If you go this route, invest in products labeled “odor eliminator” over simple air fresheners.

  • Air fresheners cover the smell. They do not actually eliminate the odor and the smell will remain once the product wears off. If the smell is strong, it may even be detectable over the scent of the air freshener.
  • Odor eliminators seek to neutralize odors. They cover smells quicker and more effectively. When at your local supermarket, look for products identified as odor eliminators. There are a wide variety of odor eliminators on the market, so you may have to do some trial and error before you find a product that works for you. You can read product reviews online to get a sense of which products work most effectively at eliminating odors. Source: SFGate

Get rid of damp towels
Make sure to hang your towels to dry after every use, and to wash them at least once a week. (This includes hand towels and washcloths.) Use bleach if possible; if not, use the hottest water you can to kill the bacteria that finds its way into the folds.

Never hang your towels at the back of a door–this will slow the drying process and let bacteria multiply, causing bad smells. Source: TheSpruce
