How to Get Rid of Bad Smells

Bad smells travel everywhere, and your home is no exception. Bad smells in your home can accumulate from a multitude of things from pets, cooking, cleaning products, sweat, perfumes, and even laundry odors. You may want to shift the blame of your odor problem onto external factors, but more than likely we are the culprits of the odor issue in our homes. That leads us to the main question, how to get rid of bad smells in our home? Many people will use different cleaning agents or DIY solutions to absolve the odor in their homes, but could these methods be tainting your home’s smell even further? Cleaning agents with harsh chemicals and masking agents will lead to more hazards in your home than you could even imagine as households contain an average of 62 toxic chemicals from different cleaning products used to clean their home. Further, masking agents such as scented cleaning products and air fresheners contain a toxic chemical called Phthalates that could be disruptive to the endocrine system. In a 2003 study conducted by researchers from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, found that men with high counts of phthalates in their blood had a reduction in sperm count. Avoiding these harsh products are vital to not only your environment but your health. Instead of using these harsh chemical cleaning agents, try using a non-toxic, odor eliminating products like OdorKlenz that works at the source to remove odors and chemicals.
