Keep the office fresh and clean with these air purifying essentials
No one likes walking into a stinky office bathroom — but let’s get real. Sometimes smell just comes with the territory. But that doesn’t mean you can’t and shouldn’t do anything about it. On the contrary, you should do everything you can to tackle toilet odors before they get out of hand and kill off employee morale. Here are a few ideas to make your bathroom smell a little less pungent between cleanings:
Air purifying plants
Potted plants are an exceptional addition to any office — especially the bathroom. That’s because they aren’t just pretty to look at; they’re also natural air purifiers! Lilies, orchids, and palm trees, among others, actually clean the air — meaning that, over time, bathroom stenches won’t stand a chance. But only certain varieties will do the trick; make sure you’re in-the-know about which ones will truly do your bathroom justice.
A few other air cleaning favorites: aloe vera (which is good to keep in the office, as it can be used in first aid, too!), the Boston fern (which is a natural air purifier and, surprisingly, a humidifier), and the Chinese evergreen (which removes toxins from the air). Check out this list for more great suggestions.
You might be surprised to learn that essential oils act as great barriers when it comes to bathroom odors. Pick a strong and clean-smelling essential oil (such as peppermint or eucalyptus), and you’ve got a powerful stench-busting magic trick right in your hands. In fact, all you need to do is pour a few drops (generally 3-4) directly into the toilet before you sit down to use the restroom. The secret? Essential oils instantly coat the toilet water in a film, trapping any odors below the surface.
Leave a small, cheap bottle of pure essential oils on the back of the toilet along with some simple directions. It’s a natural way to keep embarrassing odors at bay.
The only problem? It doesn’t work after the fact; the oil needs to be used before the deed is done. So, what if you went to the bathroom and left … evidence is in the air. What are your options?
Sometimes, you’ve got to go all in on bad bathroom smells. And, unlike the other suggestions, Febreze works even after the fact, when smells are most active. It is designed to go straight to the source of the smell, equalizing it (never masking it) with fresh and clean scents. It’s simple, easy to use, and everyone knows exactly how to use it to get the job done: point and spray.
Not into the idea of an obvious sounding and smelling aerosol spray? How about a solution that works hard 24/7 to combat smells? Available in fresh, clean scents inspired by nature, Renuzit is a simple, hands-free solution to your bad bathroom odors. It keeps working hard, silently and consistently, even when your employees don’t remember to keep their end of the bathroom bargain.
That’s just the beginning of bathroom odor fighters.
