6 Tips To Banish Bad Odors

We are back with new solutions to remove bad smells, this time expanding our range to the car outside. These are accessible means which prove their efficiency when you need to freshen the air inside, with a direct impact on your spirits. So here are some new tips to banish bad odors you can rely on, in a series of ideas via Reader’s Digest.

If you’re re-using an old food container that was previously occupied by something that left an odd smell behind, squirt a bit of yellow mustard in the bottom and fill the container halfway with warm water. Swish the mixture around gently, let it sit for fifteen minutes, and wash.

Your pet may have managed to outrun that pesky skunk but it still spent the evening lurking underneath your car. Dissolve 1 cup of dried mustard into 3 gallons of water and splash the solution over your vehicle’s tires and undercarriage.

To rid your dishwasher of that musty and dank smell, throw one cup of baking soda in the bottom of the washer and run it on the rinse cycle. Should the smell persist, sprinkle a few more tablespoons in the bottom to sit in between loads, but don’t feel the need to rinse the washer again before the next load. Prevent weird smells from accumulating in the first place by adding ½ cup of lemon juice to the detergent receptacle each time you use the machine.

This one we didn’t know: stop smelly sneakers from stinking up your whole house by crumbling a couple of sage leaves inside each shoe just before you put them on. Sage carries a light fragrance while killing bacteria, and you can just shake the flakes out each night and replace them the next day.

Just finished cooking a lot of meals? Wet a washcloth with vinegar and wave it around the room to neutralize any smell. Another method is to slice two lemons and place them on a baking sheet, then preheat your oven at 225° and bake for 60-90 minutes. Once time is up, leave your oven door open and let this natural air freshener work wonders.
