Friends, I’m writing this post out of empathy and solidarity: I bet your bathroom, at least on occasion, just kind of stinks. Now I’m SURE that you did not contribute in ANY way to this unfortunate odor. Goodness knows I didn’t! A faint scent of roses follows me wherever I go, and I’m sure the same is true for you! 😉
But not everyone in my family is blessed with this gift. And so, every now and again our restroom area smells less-than-awesome. Our downstairs restroom is actually the worst, and that is because it is also the home of the litter box. We have two cats, and until a few weeks ago, they were using separate litter boxes. We have now got them both using the same litter box, but what that also means is that we have consolidated the smell factor. It takes pretty much no time at all for the room to smell bad. I knew I needed to put an immediate stop to it, because it was grossing me out, and making me feel genuinely sorry for anyone who tried to use that room. I’m not really down with people feeling grossed out in my house.
So here’s what I did to combat the odors constantly without my having to constantly clean or spray down surfaces. It takes 1 second and it lasts as long as a roll of toilet paper!
Purification is an essential oil blend from Young Living that contains lemongrass, rosemary, melaleuca, myrtle, citronella and lavandin. It absolutely excels at neutralizing odors. I’m actually already in the habit of running it once a week in my diffuser just to give the house a bit of a clean slate feel.
But now I’ve figured out how to keep smells at bay in the smelliest part of our home daily! All you need to do is put 1 drop of purification on the inside of your toilet paper roll (have you tried Marcal brand, yet? Good stuff!).
The purification is going to get right to work for you, and you should plan to add a new drop every time you get a new roll of toilet paper out (unless you go through 1 roll a month, or something, in which case you have some unique bathroom habits!).
Now, if you have a compounded problem like we do with our cat litter boxes being in this area, then you might want to also put 1 drop of purification on a cotton ball (go organic, friends! Every step counts!), and stick it in an air vent, or place it high up on a shelf where your pets or children won’t discover it.
Now breathe easy, friends!
