How to Keep Your Toilet Bowl Smelling Fresh


You can tell a lot about a person based on their bathroom. If a picture claims to be worth "a thousand words"... then we cannot imagine the book that someone would write about a bad smelling Bathroom... Yikes!

We here at POTTYMINTS believe that the bathroom is one of the most beautiful rooms in any home, and since the average person spends roughly 92 days on the toilet in a lifetime... do yourself a favor and keep your toilet bowl smelling fresh throughout the day with POTTYMINTS! 

But, if you find yourself in a situation where you don't have any POTTYMINTS on you, Here are our 5 tips to Keep Your Toilet Bowl Smelling Fresh! 

1. Clean the Bowl Regularly

Sh*t Happens — Never have two words made more sense, when it comes to bathroom freshness!

You see, while we all go into the bathroom with a general game-plan, sometimes your body calls an "audible". Whether you are in a rush, you have a sensitive stomach, or its just one of those days... we cannot recommend it enough - Clean your Toilet Bowl Regularly. 

Like dust, bad smelling scents tend to accumulate over time. 

Take the Bathroom Toilet Brush, and think of it like a COVID Test... Swab the toilet, making sure to get every part (*If you can, remove the toilet seat, and give it a good scrub too*). Make sure to wipe down the floor and sink to eliminate hair and dander buildup.

2. Increase Air Flow

This may come as a no brainer to some of you, but if the bathroom has a window, feel free to crack the window and let some fresh air in. Many unwanted smells simply evaporate with the presence of new air - the only thing we will say is, don't open the window too much.

A wide-open window in a bathroom suggests that you were either planning your escape, or that it required a full open-windows air flow, to compensate for the smell.... Just a small crack in the window should suffice!

3. Check for Mold or Mildew

There is nothing, and we repeat — nothing more disgusting than walking into a Bathroom and seeing a ring of moldy-dark-fungus, greeting you in the bowl. 

Mold is the result of stagnant water, so toilets that are used infrequently and not flushed often are more likely to develop a mold problem than those that are flushed many times a day. Since mold can be hazardous to your health, you want to make sure that you are wearing a mask, eye protection, and gloves before using one of these methods to remove mold from the toilet bowl or tank. 

We DO NOT advise using Bleach to clean the mold, as it can be harmful

We DO recommend using Vinegar as it is very effective at removing mold without causing any harm to you or your toilet! 

4. Swap Out the Toilet Brush

Dentists recommend that the average person changes toothbrushes every 3 to 4 months, and yet we keep our Toilet Brushes for years and in some cases, walk into bathrooms where they look recently used... GROSS! 

As a rule of thumb, if the thing you are using to clean things is dirty... its time to get a new "clean thing"

... Or to make this even simpler... It's Time: GET A NEW TOILET BRUSH!

5. Try the Original Toilet Air Freshener!

As you can tell, while there are many ways to keep your toilet bowl smelling fresh, few of the suggested recommendations are really practical.

If you are at your friend’s house, and you find yourself scrubbing Bathroom the floor to clean the stench ... you must think to yourself… “There has to be a better way…”

That’s why we designed POTTYMINTS to not only look great in any bathroom, but also make your entire Bathroom smell great! With POTTYMINTS, there is no need to sacrifice Bathroom Freshness for your ideal bathroom aesthetic - we created POTTYMINTS for people just like you! 

While POTTYMINTS do not clean the bowl, they make the entire Bathroom smell Fresh, for the next 2-3 Flushes (or 6-8 Hours if you let the tablet fully dissolve!)

Additionally, because POTTYMINTS has no harsh cleaning chemicals in them, POTTYMINTS are completely Non-Toxic, Septic-Safe and Pet Safe (for anyone drinking from the toilet bowl...) 

Other bathroom air fresheners try and mask the smell with a stronger smell, making the bathroom smell like an active crime scene... POTTYMINTS releases a subtle, elegant fragrance, that fills the room, but does not overwhelm your Bathroom Guests. 

Lastly, if you are trying to get rid of bathroom smells - you may as well replace them with fragrances you want your bathroom to smell like! Luckily for you, POTTYMINTS are available in four artfully-selected fragrances that truly need to be smelled to be fully experienced! 

POTTYMINTS are available in 4 Fragrances: 

  • ARANCIA:  A sensual scent that combines fresh citrus notes of juicy nectarine and orange blossom with hints of water lily and caramel 
  • LA FLEUR: A modern, sophisticated floral with notes of citrus, jasmine, honeysuckle and sandalwood.
