Have you ever completed your house cleaning, taken a look around to see everything nice and tidy, but for whatever reason there is still an unpleasant smell coming from somewhere? If all the surfaces are wiped clean and sanitised, the pile of dirty dishes in the sink washed, and all smelly foodstuff removed from the fridge or bin, the only remaining culprit must be your carpet.
Today we will share with you a number of ways to remove bad smells using three of our favourite ingredients. No household should be without the following as they can be put to use in so many ways:
- Baking Soda
- White Vinegar
- Lemon Juice
These ingredients certainly cost a lot less than splashing out on expensive cleaning products at your local supermarket.
If you do not have the time or energy to complete all the chores around the house then why not call a cleaning agency that provides regular house cleaning services?
Baking soda is possibly the best ingredient for removing foul odours in your carpet. All you have to do is sprinkle a generous amount over the entire floor and let it sit overnight before vacuum cleaning.
White vinegar, due to its high acidity, is great for killing bacteria and mould that can produce foul smells. Create a formula using half a cup of white vinegar and warm water and apply it to any area affected by mould or pet urine. If the situation is serious then apply full strength white vinegar for maximum affect.
White vinegar mixed with water is just as effective as most house cleaners, so if you have an empty spray bottle handy it is good to pour your homemade formula in there for future use. The strong smell of vinegar will disappear once it has dried, taking with it any other lingering smells in the room.
Squeezed lemon juice has the same acidic qualities as white vinegar and smells a lot nicer if you really cannot handle the strong smell of vinegar.
