Fabric Softener in the Toilet Tank

Bad smell in the toilet is a problem that everyone wants to avoid. When conventional methods disappoint, inventiveness comes to the rescue. Today we’re going to tell you why it’s a good idea to pour fabric softener and some other products into your toilet tank.

I first saw this hack on the Internet. There was no translation, and I did not immediately understand the meaning of the unusual manipulations that the lively Italian woman was doing in the video.

Fabric Softener in the Toilet Tank

After filling the bottom of a small plastic bottle with water, she topped it with some blue liquid (I later learned it was a fabric softener).

Then, for some reason, she made small holes in the bottle cap.

She removed the lid of the toilet tank and placed the entire bottle into it.

It turned out that this bottle of fabric softener and water was a homemade version of an air freshener. Through the small holes, the softener slowly seeps into the water and there’s a pleasant smell each time you flush the toilet.

This method has another non-obvious, but good effect. The volume of water in the tank will decrease, but not enough to affect the way the toilet works. And the water bills will be slightly lower.

You can, of course, not bother and pour the softener directly into the tank. But the effect of such a procedure is enough for only a few flushes.

Pouring Toothpaste Into the Toilet Tank

Have you ever tried pouring toothpaste into the tank? You will be surprised, but it helps to remove rust, disinfect the surface of the toilet, and get rid of unpleasant smells.

Choose the cheapest toothpaste with the strongest smell. Make as many holes in the tube as you can and put it in the tank. Now every flush will disinfect and refresh the toilet. It is better to make the holes small, then one tube will last for 2–3 months.

Clean Toilet Tank

As you know, for the fifth labor, Hercules had to clean up King Augeas’ stables, which had not been cleaned for 30 years. The average person looks into the toilet tank not much more often than Augeas looked into his stables.

Here’s a simple way of getting rid of limescale deposits in the toilet tank.

You will need a glass of 9% vinegar and baking soda. Mix a glass of warm vinegar with a tablespoon of baking soda. Pour the mixture into the tank and leave for several hours.

Vinegar dissolves limescale, removes rust and unpleasant smells. It is best to use it in the evening so that the solution can act overnight. To enhance the result, you can repeat the procedure several times.

A Trick From Flight Attendants

If you need to get rid of an unpleasant smell in the toilet quickly, this little trick, which flight attendants use, can help out.

Natural coffee can be used to freshen the air. Just leave a cup of freshly brewed coffee in the bathroom and pour some of the coffee grounds into the toilet.

The aroma of the drink in a matter of seconds will eliminate the odor. Coffee grounds can also be used both in household and cosmetology.

These homemade products are very simple and fuss-free. Have you already tried them?

Like many people nowadays, I love to explore new places. My favorite type is slow travelling, when you can really blend in with locals and learn about new cultures and languages. But I think there are also perfect times for enjoying freshly baked pastry, a cup of fragrant coffee, and a good movie in the comfort of your own home. I guess I'm kind of a cultural omnivore, and I watch different types of movies, but the ones about art and food inspire me the most!
