We like maintaining our house, no matter if there is any occasion or not. The normal chores include cleaning (with multi-surface cleaners) all the visible items every day; getting rid of trash from kitchen and washroom every day and vacuuming at least twice a week. If you visit our house, you can make out my wife and i are cleanliness freak. Still, there are smells that have troubled me from time to time – of used clothes, old papers and books in the cabinets, cooking just before the visits, and recently i have been fighting poop smell.
Let me explain about each:
1. Of used clothes – Since we can not wash clothes every day, sometimes the rack fills-up a bit and it starts smelling. We try to keep them away in a closet next to airy passage, so we don’t suffer from the smell of it; but there are times when a few days pass by and the clothes get stacked-up quite a bit. That’s when it can get nasty, if the environment is not so dry. During rainy days, it gets all the more troublesome when we bring wet clothes in and have to keep them for a few days. In such cases, to get rid of the smell, we use room fresheners. But it is a temporary solution and doesn’t last long.
2. Old papers and books – I have a habit of reading and have a cabinet half-full of papers from my association with Toastmasters and books which i studied during my FRM certification days. I just like to keep them for reference and as a memory. But then, i know some day i will have to get rid of them. Till then, i have to be at ease with the smell that they are exuding. I try to keep that cabinet closed at all times, because the lower section in that cabinet has our shoes. But when we open it up, sometimes there is a bit of smell which i feel some people would not be able to take. Again, i proudly say, we have room fresheners to our rescue.
3. Cooking just before the visits – There are times when we have to deep-fry and cook spicy things just before guests are about to turn up. Smells from such activities are difficult to put-away quickly no matter even if we open all the windows or our house along with turning-on the kitchen chimney. The result is, in summers, we have to ask the guests to bear with us for some time, before we can turn-on the AC; or in winters, it is the other way round. Since the smell is intense, even the fresheners don’t help much since we have to make sure the smoke also leaves the house.
4. Poop smell – Now, this is the latest discovery. What happens is i get up early and my wife is the opposite. We live in an Apartment, which doesn’t have the exhaust fan in the washroom, so we have to open up the window. When i go to toilet in the morning, i make sure the washroom is fresh for my wife when she wakes up later on, by keep the window open for some time. She tries to go when she gets up; but off-late, her system is asking her to go just before i am about to leave for the office. The result being i can not pee before leaving for work. Now, this is a big headache for me since i feel like relieving myself before leaving home. Air fresheners can hardly work in such instances and what if we have guests some day?
As you can make out, my problems are permanent but the solution is just temporary. I have been looking for a solution that can help me get rid of the odors and not just cover them up. That’s when i stumbled upon various options available from Ambi Pur. These are quite what i want, just so i don’t have to keep myself, my family and my guests from enjoying. Moreover, i feel, the freshness of Ambi Pur will spread-out positive energy and make our house inviting for guests.
