Natural Household Deotorizers For Stinky Situations- Calling All Moms
Have some household stink issues and can't seem to shake it? Especially with kids running around? I found some quick solutions using things you already have at home!
Here is an awesome list of the problems and the easy solutions to the stinky-ness!
Problem: Stinky Sink
The garbage disposal is great for keeping the scraps of dinner from lingering, but the resulting odors are more stubborn.
Solution: Give the disposal something nicer to chew on. Run hot water, drop orange peels down the hatch, and turn on the switch. Lemon, lime, and grapefruit rinds also do the trick.
Problem: Odor on Ice
Those nasty old foods in the freezer make your whole fridge stink!
Solution: Wipe the freezer with a cotton pad dampened with pure vanilla extract. Refrigerator shelves will benefit from a wipe-down with a 50-50 mix of white vinegar and water.
Problem: Storage Stench
Saving leftovers for lunch is virtuous; chucking containers because you can't get rid of the smell of chile isn't.
Solution: Soak plastic containers in warm water and baking soda overnight. Bathe glass jars in a mixture of one teaspoon powdered mustard and one quart warm water.
Problem: Scents Underfoot
Carpets can collect unpleasant odors, particularly in high-traffic areas and in spots where pets like to nap.
Solution: Cordon off the zone and sprinkle liberally with baking soda, then vacuum up a few hours later.
Try these and smell better!
