A pro organizer who goes by Caroline took to her TikTok to share simple ways to keep your bathroom smelling lovely.
A REED DIFFUSER
For a reed diffuser to work properly, natural reeds that contain small capillaries throughout are inserted into the diffuser.
The reeds absorb fragrance oil similar to how a straw would. The scent moves up the reed all the way to the top, where the oil then evaporates and releases the fragrance into your bathroom.
The fragrance oil should last for a month with proper use, though how long it lasts can differ depending on the type of oil you choose to use and the amount of reeds, according to LAFCO New York.
AN AIR PURIFYING PLANT
Caroline suggested a snake plant for your choice of air-purifying plant, as they work great for the purpose. And according to Time.com, scientists confirmed that houseplants can be good at purifying the air.
The larger the plant and more leafs it has, the better a contender it is.
“The amount of leaf surface area influences the rate of air purification,” stated Bill Wolverton, a former NASA research scientist who conducted a 1989 plant study.
ESSENTIAL OIL ON A COTTON BALL
Caroline’s next suggestion was to add a few drops of your favorite essential oil to a cotton ball and place it at the bottom of your trashcan.
This will keep your bathroom along with the not-so-pleasant parts smelling wonderful.
HANG DRY YOUR TOWELS
Towels can harbor a bunch of bacteria that may alter the smell of your bathroom. There’s something you can do to curb this though and stop the development of mildew.
Instead of folding your towels, simply hang them to dry them.
KEEP SCENTED SOAPS ON YOUR COUNTER
Not only are they decorative and handy for scrubbing away at dirt and germs, but scented soaps will fill your bathroom with a nice aroma.
Caroline keeps hers on a small decorative plate for a nice posh look.
According to Caroline, this can be done by keeping a door or window open.
This will allow fresh air in and let out any scents that may be lingering in your bathroom.
WASH BATH MATS
Like your towels, you want to prevent mildew on your bath maths. You should wash them regularly to stop any buildup from happening and ensure that mildew smells don’t settle in.
Caroline suggested washing them on the warm cycle.
DEODORIZE THE BATHROOM WITH A DIY SPRAY
The spray Caroline used is made of equal parts water and vodka.
According to Caroline, vodka is an excellent deodorizer, great at killing bacteria that cause odors, evaporates quicker than rubbing alcohol, and is more odorless.
