5 + 1 ways to eliminate bad bathroom smell


Who does not like the smell of cleanliness and freshness in the house? However, many times, this ideal environment is spoiled by problems with bad smells which Αποφράξεις Αντωνίου can fix. Bad smells come mainly from the bathroom and kitchen. The sinks and the drains become clogged, as a result of which they spread bad smells in the space. Think about how many products go down our drains: food scraps, various liquids, hairs, paints, fats.

So, when the water comes down with difficulty from the drains, then we understand that it is time to prevent the bad smells. The process you have to follow is called unclogging, as you will dissolve the waste that has blocked the pipes and the water will flow more easily, eliminating the unpleasant odors. The 5+1 ways that will help you achieve the right unclogging are:

1. Obstructive fluid

The first thought you will get is to go to the super market and choose an occluding liquid that will do the job on its own. It is an easy process and always a successful solution. It is a good idea to follow the instructions on the package, as it usually requires enough hot water as a prerequisite. After pouring the liquid, leave it to act for 15-20 minutes and add hot water again. You may need to repeat this one more time. This is almost always enough and the blockage is successful.

2. Baking soda

Skin care masks with baking soda are well known, but baking soda is also useful for the home, as well as unclogging the tubes. For example, it is used in the marble cleaning, because it acts gently. As for the pipes, 3-4 spoons of baking soda in the drain are enough to dispel the smell. You can use it in all the pipes of your house. For something even more drastic, you can add half a cup of vinegar and leave it on for 15-20 minutes. Pour plenty of hot water so you can easily clean the pipes.

3. Coffee grounds

You definitely have some coffee at your home. So when you finish your coffee, try throwing the coffee grounds, which have corrosive properties and leave it for 20 minutes. This will reach low into the piping and then, with the hot water you pour, all the residue will be removed. But beware! Do not forget, because the corrosive functions of coffee can also damage the piping.

4. Vinegar

It was mentioned before in combination with baking soda and indeed vinegar is an effective natural cleanser. Disinfects, dissolves fats and eliminates unpleasant odors. The process with vinegar is just as simple: Before going to bed at night, pour a cup of vinegar into the drain. Leave it on overnight, without water. When you wake up, you will pour water into the drain, which will be completely cleaned.

For more immediate action without waiting for eight hours of sleep, try the recipe with baking soda. That is, make a mixture of half a cup of vinegar and 3-4 tablespoons of baking soda and after throwing it in the siphon, wait for 20-30 minutes. Finally, pour plenty of hot water and you have made a good blockage.

5. Lemon

Equivalent to vinegar, lemon cleanses deeply. It is no coincidence that most cleansers have a lemon scent. Lemon gives a strong flavor to food and at the same time eliminates bad odors. The recipe you will follow here is to squeeze a whole lemon and mix it with a cup of hot water. Leave it on the pipes all night and in the morning pour enough hot water again. Although pure lemon juice is effective, it is not recommended as it corrodes the tubes.

+1. Professional help

Of course, you can also hire an experienced plumber, if the problem of unpleasant odor from the sewer persists. What is certain is that the professional cleaning of the sewer will solve your problem immediately. The cost is usually small and the result is large, and this work is usually rarely requested.
