Public bathrooms can end up with a hard to remove urine smell especially the male bathroom and especially if you own a business that involves the consumption of alcohol.
Even though you use Urinal Cakes and try to have your cleaner go in every few hours to give it a touch up the scent always seems to come back.
Here is a great homemade, eco-friendly solution to try that is guaranteed to get rid of the lingering odour.
Items that you will need are:
- Baking Soda
- Lemon Juice
- White Vinegar
- Measuring Cup
To make the solution squeeze a fresh lemon into a bowl, add some baking soda and mix until it is a thick cake like batter,
Put on your gloves and rub the paste along any areas that have a noticeable urine buildup such as the toilet seat, the bottom of the toilet where it meets the floor, underneath the rim of the stool area, etc. and let it set for 15 minutes.
While you wait for the solution to set, remove the lid of the toilet tank and add a ½ cup of vinegar to the water and allow it to also sit for 15 minutes.
After the 15 minutes are up, flush the toilet to wash out the water from the tank.
Once the 15 minutes are over on your lemon/baking soda paste, grab an old toothbrush (or one bought specifically for the purpose of cleaning), pour some vinegar on the brush part and scrub all areas that you had applied the paste on then wipe using the washcloth.
This is a guaranteed way to help remove the lingering odour of urine and should be done often to help keep the bathroom smelling clean.
