Animal Remover Offers Tips for Dealing With Bad Smells

Baking soda and lemon

We will all have times when our house doesn’t smell pleasant. It could be lingering odors from cooking, fur babies, or just smells from daily life. If your home smells bad due to pest or animal infestation, you will probably need professional help to deal with it. Animal Remover has a few suggestions and is ready to help with their professional deodorization and disinfection services.

There are several home remedies for dealing with unpleasant odors in your home. Open the windows during nice weather and run fans to let fresh air blow through and push out bad smells. To perfume the air naturally, rub a bit of vanilla on a light bulb or cut a lemon in half and place them out of sight. Other ideas include using baking soda, old coffee grounds, essential oils, and vinegar.

Baking Soda

Baking soda may be used to absorb odors in several ways. If there’s a bad smell in your carpet, mattress, or upholstered furniture, sprinkle baking soda over the surface, let it sit for a half an hour — or longer if the smell is really bad —, vacuum, and the bad smell will go away with the baking soda.

Leaving an open box of baking soda in your refrigerator will help to absorb foul fridge smells. For smelly shoes, dust the inner soles with baking soda. Leave the baking soda in until you’re ready to wear the shoes again. Then shake out any loose soda before putting the shoes on.

Old Coffee Grounds

Coffee grounds will trap and absorb odors. Used, dried grounds work as well as fresh coffee, so set them in a container to dry after you’ve brewed the coffee. When you notice an unpleasant odor in your house, put dry coffee grounds into cup and place it in the affected area.

Essential Oils

For an easy way to add a refreshing fragrance to your bathroom, use essential oils. Just add a few drops to the inside of your toilet paper roll tube and they will fight against unpleasant odors and leave your bathroom smelling fresher. Do you want to make an organic room deodorizer? Get a spray bottle and fill it with water, then add a few drops of your oil of choice, shake, and then spritz the refreshing mixture into the air.


There’s no need to cover up a smell when you can neutralize it. Bring about a cup of vinegar to a simmer in a saucepan on your stove top. The simmering vinegar will release odor-fighting power into the air, and if you let it simmer for a while, it will remove odors throughout the house. At first there will be a noticeable vinegar smell, but it will go away within a few hours.

Every day, ordinary household odors are pretty easy to deal with yourself. But trying to get rid of the odors and bacteria from animal infestations is a little more difficult. For these situations, Animal Remover is ready to help.
