Updated on January 18, 2017

The garbage

This is the main cause of bad smell in your home. You have to throw it away every day. The bad smell could appear only for a few hours. If you leave the garbage for two or three days the bad smell will settle down in your house for a long time.

In the bathroom

The bathroom and the toilet could spread really bad smells. There are many ways to get rid of the smelly toilet. Just install freshener in there. Today you have the possibility to choose between many types and flavors, so just go to the nearest shop. The bad smell from the bathroom is result from the mold and mildew. How to get rid of them – in step 7.


In the kitchen

The cooking area is really smelly. While the cooking the smell is really tasty and could make you hungry for a second, but if the smell overnight, next day the spell could disgust you. You need really strong air conditioner and of course don’t forget to turn it on every time you cook. After the dinner you could open the window to make sure the smell will disappear completely. You have to clean all the appliances too. Clean the fridge, clean the oven and the air conditioner if needed.

In the hallway

This is the place of smelly shoes. If your family got many pairs, the smell won’t disappear easy. Use products for shoes. Also after every season you have to leave outside the shoes you don’t need for the next four months. After that put them in boxes and leave them in the closet.


If you have pets the bad odor is a part of your home. But you can decrease the level of the smell. First of all teach your pet that every angle, the carpet and the furniture are not his toilet. And if you missed this step while it was little, now you have to declare war to the smelly stains on the carpet. But before doing it you have to define your carpets type and after that to decide what is the best cleaning method for your carpeting.

Cigarettes smell

You put “quit smoking” in every New Year's resolution list. You finally have to do it, if you want to get rid of the awful cigarettes smell. Soak a towel in mix of vinegar and warm water. After that wave it around the room. It will collect the cigarette odor. Do this every day for a week and after that use freshener to remove completely the bad smell.

Mold and mildew

You have to check the whole house for mold, because it could be everywhere. In the kitchen, in the bathroom, in the closet. Use mix of 1 part chlorine blench to 4 parts water to remove the mildew stains. Don’t forget to use plastic gloves while cleaning. If the humidity in your house is too high, you have to place a defumidifier.

Open the windows

This is maybe the best tip for springtime. You just have to put in the fresh air and it will do its business.
