Keep that foul smell away

Friday, April 21, 2017

Household smells can be remedied by either removing the source, by cleaning the offending article – disguising the smell by overlaying with a more pleasant one. Here are some helpful tips to avoid odours in the home.

  • To minimise cooking smells use an exhaust fan or cooker hood while cooking. Leave windows open for a while, to dissipate the smell. Wipe the surfaces of the cook top and counters with a cloth dipped in hot water and lemon, along with detergent.
     
  • Lemon juice and water heated in the microwave will remove lingering smells from the appliance.
     
  • To counteract odours from the kitchen sink, pour a little undiluted bleach down the plughole every few days, leave overnight and then rinse thoroughly.
     
  • Regular cleaning will keep bathrooms odour free. Lighting an incense candle will take care of minor occasional smells. Keep a disinfectant block inside the toilet, and the space well ventilated.
     
  • Pour disinfectant down the waste outlets of the bathing area and washbasins to keep them clean and unblocked.
     
  • Check the contents of the refrigerator on a daily basis, throw out any which have passed their shelf lifespan. This will keep any rotting smell from pervading the inside of the refrigerator.
     
  • Pot pourri or an agarbatti can be used to disguise any lingering smells in the house.
     
  • Good ventilation is the key to having an odour-free environment in the house. If there is no natural cross-ventilation, an exhaust fan will help to throw out stale smells.
