Deodorise your bin with essential oils

The first hack is VERY simple but makes all the difference when trying to make your bathroom smell nice.

All you have to do is put a few drops of your favourite essential oil on a couple of cotton balls and place these balls in the base of your bathroom bin, underneath the bin bag. 

This will deodorise any bad smells from your bin and will keep the area smelling fresh and clean.

Use essential oils

This hack is also very simple and is mainly a tip for deodorising the room.

Place a few drops of an essential oil of your choice onto the inside of your paper towel roll. The oil with soak into the carboard and will keep your bathroom smelling fresh and clean until the roll runs out. 

Then, when you replace the toilet roll, add some more essential oils and your bathroom will never smell!

Disinfect your toilet brush

The toilet brush often goes unnoticed and is where bad smells typically originate, so it is very important to clean and disinfect your brush regularly. This hack is so easy it can be done daily if you want to!

Begin by propping the toilet brush under the toilet seat, then pour over boiling water and spray the bristles with disinfectant. Leave the brush propped under the toilet seat to air dry.

Clean your bathroom sink

Drains are the MAIN cause of bad smells and cleaning your sink regularly is one of the most important things you can do for a clean and fresh smelling bathroom (or kitchen).

Scoop baking soda and pour vinegar down your sink and leave for about five minutes. Then, run your hot water tap so rinse the sink and the inside of your drain.
