As some of you may know we raise chickens what you mean I know he said chickens have to stay a certain temperature until they are fully feathered. The easiest way for us to keep them this temperature is to raise them as chicks in the house. We keep the baby chicks in the kids first level bathroom until it’s time to put them in Cluckingham Palace. While that seems fun as you can imagine it is a huge mess.

EASY BATHROOM SMELL HACKS!
What do bathroom smells come from?
Dirty or stale towels, leaking water source, uncleaned surfaces, urine, feces, no ventilation, or inconsistent cleaning schedules.
Ok…”So what do I do about it?? Here are some easy bathroom smell hacks to help
1)Find and capture the enemy! That’s right, find the source and GET RID of it! Dirty diaper, urine on the floor, week old towels on the floor….you get the point.
I know all of that seems very *easy* but sometimes if you look hard enough you will find something you weren’t looking for.
2) Develop a daily , weekly and monthly cleaning plan for the bathroom. I know this seems daunting but a few steps everyday can make a huge difference. If you can tackle a few things each day then weekly and monthly the job is small!
What can I do to keep my bathroom fresh?
Clean every surface, use cleaning products in your toilet bowl, use fabric softener or fabuloso in your toilet tank, place car freshii clips on your vents, place liquid lysol or Pine-sol in your toilet brush bowl, mop the floors with cleaner mixed with detergent or essential oils.
Time to get down to some quick bathroom smell hacks. You don’t have to do these everyday so that a huge time saving thing right there. First, no matter the temperature, open the windows while do a quick spray down of the entire bathroom with a cleaner. I prefer either Dawn power wash or Fabuloso. When I say quick i mean QUICK. Spray and wipe down EVERY SURFACE. Next turn on a fan or exhaust fan for the bathroom. Don’t have one? You can even use a desk fan or stand alone fan in the doorway.
Remove all the towels and consider doing a towel clarification process on them at least once every 3 months. You will be surprised at what you find.
