After years of debating on whether or not we should do it, we finally decided to remodel our basement! We finally finished the walls, put a new floor in, added a living room, and we fulfilled our dream of having a bar inside the house.
Since there was going to be a lot of Sangria and Cosmos being consumed at the new bar, we realized we were going to have to put a bathroom in the basement. The only place left to do this was the room right next to the bar, and this got us thinking: If the bathroom was going to be directly next to the bar and living room, it would be most ideal to reduce, as much as possible, all odors that would be coming from the bathroom. So how could a household, like mine and everyone else’s, do that?
From that garlic you cooked last night, to the dog’s muddy feet, it doesn’t take much for strange smells to pop up around your home. But whether you’re fighting a certain odor or you simply want to get rid of that stale smell, synthetic air fresheners AREN’T the way to go.
I know… the commercials make them seem like little gifts from the heavens. A few sprays, and your home smells fresh and vibrant. Unfortunately, what those commercials DON’T mention is that these air fresheners are full of dangerous chemicals that can cause everything from migraines to asthma attacks. Plus, synthetic air fresheners don’t remove odors. They only mask them!
