Bleach makes toilet urine smells ‘worse’ – use 95p item that ‘works wonders’ instead



A typical bathroom deep clean is often enough to remove general pee smells. But sometimes, households need a more focused approach.……CONTINUE READING>>>

Urine is resilient. If households don’t use the correct materials and methods, they can brush off even the most aggressive household cleaning products.

The odour needs to be killed at the source – this typically tends to be on the floor about the base of the toilet.

Rather than reaching for the bleach, Mrs Hinch fans suggested using a product most would never think of to clean with – shaving foam.

Unsure of how to remove urine smells in the bathroom, Aida Gonzales took to the Mrs Hinch Cleaning Tips and Tricks Facebook page to ask for some advice.

She wrote: “What do you guys use to get rid of urine smell in bathroom?”

Although bleach is seen as a saviour for many tough cleaning dilemmas, group members agreed that bleach shouldn’t be used.

Sam Shore said: “I tried shaving foam and it made the smell a lot worse.”

Renee Cole commented: “I used bleach and the smell just came back and it was bad.”

Instead, it was suggested that Aida use shaving foam. Tracy Doyle suggested: “Shaving foam and a scrubbing brush.”

Caris Phillips wrote: “Shaving foam in the worst areas. Then clean with an anti-bacterial cleaner.”

Alison Mckay said: “Definitely shaving foam, it not only cleans the area but it deodorises it too.”

Dean Johnson claimed: “Shaving foam and scrub works wonders. The previous tenant must have missed the toilet and could smell wee, but no longer the case now.”

James Fabbri said: “Shaving foam eliminates the smell of urine on contact unlike with bleach.”

Shaving foam is something that most with have in their bathroom cupboards. If not, it is cheap to buy. the product retails for 95p at Aldi and £1 at Boots.

For those not keen on using shaving foam, one Mrs Hinch fan suggested using laundry powder. Pamela Ritche said: “I would try washing around the area with biological laundry powder as the enzymes in it should break down the smell.”
