Scented Trash Bags
I am a candle lover. I probably have 30 candles under my sink, ready to use when needed. Every time I pass by a candle aisle, I have to stop and smell the scents. Hence, the 30 candles under my sink! Scented candles are great to use in bathrooms. Always use caution when you are lighting candles and when small children are around.
Use a Plug-In Air Freshener
Plug-in Air Fresheners work well for small bathrooms. I love the smell of Fresh Linen. You can find a brand that works well for you. I like Febreze. It just seems to last longer, and the scent is a little stronger.
DIY Air Fresheners
Make your own air fresheners with cotton balls and essential oils. I love my essential oils. Just add a few drops to a cotton ball and place inside a small Mason jar. You can always add some ribbon to the jar to add some decoration and to match your bathroom decor.
Add Fragrance to Tissue Rolls
Add some essential oils or fragrance spray to the inside of the tissue rolls. Make sure you only add it to the cardboard tube. Every time you unroll the tissue, a nice fragrance will linger in the air.
Freshen Your Rugs
Sometimes my bathroom rugs get this funky smell. I know its because my family always steps out of the shower before they dry off completely. Oh well, hard habits to break.
Adding a little Baking Soda to your rug will help with smell and absorb any lingering odors.
Freshen Your Drain
The sink drain can also have unpleasant odors. I have found pouring pine sol, or a little liquid washing detergent(Gain) down the sink works wonders. I am a total Gain snob. I buy Gain for the smell. Yes, it does a nice job cleaning my clothes, but the smell is awesome!

Soak Toilet Brush
Add Pine-Sol to the toilet brush container. When trying to get rid of stinky odors, don’t forget about the toilet brush container. This will help to sanitize the brush and cut down on the odor in the container.
Clean Your Toilet
Clean your toilet with baking soda and vinegar. Baking soda is an inexpensive product. I use it almost daily to cook with and to clean with. For most jobs, I add vinegar. I am just like a child in science class because I look forward to the reaction of the baking soda and vinegar mixing together.
Pour the baking soda into your toilet bowl. Add vinegar. You will get that fizzing reaction you are looking for. Allow this to sit for about 30 minutes. Scrub as usual.
