Keep Your Bath Mats Smelling Fresh With Baking Soda
While baking soda is often used for cooking, it can help clean your home and improve the smell of your bathroom essentials, especially your favorite bath mat.
Due to its absorbing properties, baking soda is a cost-effective, natural alternative to typical cleaning products used to help neutralize odors.
"Sprinkle baking soda over your bathmats to remove musty odors before washing them," TikTok user @mama_mila_ suggested.
Leave your baking soda on the bath mat for one hour before washing to allow it to work its magic, then vacuum the rug afterward before tossing it in the wash.
Once done, you should have a fresh and clean-smelling bath mat. Repeat this nifty hack whenever it begins to smell again.
