A bad smell is something that you don’t want to come across because they really do get up your nose and they are hard to get rid of. Unfortunately, a couple of fans and an open window or a venetian blinds Melbourne will only go so far because some of the worst culprits need more than just a bit of air circulation and room ventilation to totally eradicate. So, to make your snout a little bit happier, and the snout of everyone who lives with you, you sometimes have to go beyond the call of duty and really put some elbow grease in to removing stubborn smells. Not literal elbow grease, just a bit of effort will do! For smells that make you run out of the room with your head in your hands here are a few simple tricks which should help.
The most important part of eradicating a bad smell is to actually identify what it is. You may think you know what it is but until you have put your nose to source and ran off complaining of the horrible whiff, you cannot start to tackle it – you must know your enemy before you go into battle! Some smells and odours are really stubborn and they can be the hardest to remove, but some, even the smelliest, only need removing from your home and the stench will go with it. Not only do you get rid of the smell but you also do it without any effort whatsoever, which is exactly what you need.
Food is probably the most common source of foul stenches and sometimes all it takes is a basic method, such as overpowering the smell with another one which you prefer. It may not be very pretty and scientific but it works and it is far better than living with the smell of off curry or fish for the foreseeable future! If you want to look good and make it out to be something less basic than it actually is you can refer to it as your odour control system. This is very technically sounding and all your friends and family will never know the difference, the difference actually being that you are replacing one smell with another. Very sneaky!
If you want a more sophisticated odour control system than you want to eradicate the smell full stop. A lot of smells will not allow other smells to cover over them, such is their potency, so you need to get under them and remove them for their source. Carpets with extensive range of fabrics, upholstery and anything made from a heavy material will be a magnet for smells so try using baking soda with warm water or industry approved removers.
