Bathrooms odors are a common source of embarrassment. You can look into different methods to eliminate toilet odors, change your cleaning regimen, and make small changes to your bathroom routine.
NEUTRALIZE STINKY BOY BATHROOM SMELL WITH A HOMEMADE CLEANER!
Are you embarrassed about the smell of your bathroom? Do you pray that guests won’t want to use the bathroom when they come over? Are you worried that your son’s bad aim (especially if you have a lot of boys like we do) has ruined your bathroom forever?
After 11 years of parenting boys, here are our best tips for neutralizing boy bathroom smell! (And preventing it in the first place!)
Tip #1: If you can reserve a hall bathroom for guests that your boys don’t use – do it!
When we moved two and a half years ago, my plan was for the boys to exclusively use their own bathroom upstairs. Then we needed to potty train Owen, and it wasn’t reasonable to ask a 3 year old to run upstairs every time. If your house layout allows for a hall bath that your boys don’t touch, I think I’d go for it…
Tip #2: Involve your boys in cleaning the bathroom.
You are not a mean parent for asking your child to help scrub dried puddles of pee off the bathroom floor. Use your judgement of course, but if he has the ability to use the potty, he can pay attention and avoid messes. After one such scrubbing session at our house, the aim suddenly improved drastically.
