Spray in your bathroom to get rid of bad odor and keep the fresh air.
After vacuuming or sweeping, clean your bathroom floors with a steam mop. It cleans with water, and the high temperature is a great way to kills germs.
Fight the musty smells – Wet towels, damp towels, and bath mats can make your bathroom smell. Wash your towels regularly to fight germs and mildew.

Chas, I’m always happy to find someone using natural products for every task. So many people are addicted to their chemical air fresheners, and they make me (and a fairly high percentage of people) ill. They are nothing but neurotoxic petrochemicals. Even the people who do not have an immediate adverse reaction to them are being harmed whether they know it or not!
