4 tricks to keep a windowless bathroom smelling fresh all day

Having a clean and fragrant bathroom is essential, not only to make a good impression on those who come to visit us, but also and above all to a health issue. Everything becomes complicated when there is poor ventilation in our bathroom, perhaps because there is no window.

Germs are found everywhere, even on our skin and bodies. Although not all of them are harmful or dangerous, some can cause infectious diseases and for this reason, in addition to washing your hands frequently, you must also clean the bathroom.

A clean bathroom is not always synonymous with scented. If when you finish cleaning it it doesn’t smell as it should, or perhaps the clean scent doesn’t last long, it’s possible that your bathroom isn’t sufficiently ventilated and therefore humidity and mold are present, causing bad odors.

Below we suggest 4 tricks to always have a scented bathroom even in the absence of windows.

Bags of aromatic leaves

Plants such as laurel, eucalyptus and mint are extremely fragrant and their leaves can be used to aromatize various corners of the house, especially the bathroom.

Chop up some leaves and create bags using breathable fabric. Place the bags in various corners of the bathroom, especially in areas most prone to the formation of water vapor, which will help release the aromas.

Aromatic potpourri

Another very effective trick to keep the bathroom always fragrant is to prepare a mix of dry aromatic ingredients, such as cinnamon sprigs, citrus peels, cloves, rose or lavender petals.

Mix them in a container and put them in breathable sachets, so that they take effect with the steam. Alternatively, you can place them in a glass container without a cap and add a few drops of lavender essential oil.

Flavoring with bicarbonate

If you want to prepare a natural air freshener, without chemicals dangerous to our health, you need sodium bicarbonate and an essential oil of your choice, such as lavender, lemon mint or cinnamon.

Fill a glass jar two-thirds full with baking soda and add 15 drops of your essential oil. Mix well and cover the opening of the jar with a breathable cloth or gauze, tied around it with an elastic band. Put in the bathroom to perfume it all.

Toilet paper trick

For a long-lasting scent, apply a few drops of essential oil on the cardboard tube of toilet paper.

The cardboard will absorb the essential oil and release its aroma throughout the bathroom.

Now that you know how to perfume a bathroom without windows, choose the trick you prefer and try applying it straight away: your bathroom will have a delicious aroma all day long.
