How to keep your bathroom smelling fresh for guests

When you have guests come to stay, you want them to feel at home right away. If you have a guest bathroom available, for example, making it fresh and inviting can help your guests feel more comfortable and can even set the tone for the visit. 

To achieve the spa-like bathroom freshness and serenity that everyone who comes to stay will appreciate, we’ve got some simple tips on how to do just that.

Keep it clean

The easiest way to keep a fresh bathroom is to make sure you maintain a good cleaning regime, especially for areas that can emit unpleasant smells. These culprits tend to be toilets, blocked drains and items that get a lot of exposure to water such as bath mats and towels. Regularly check and clean these problem areas to prevent any nasty odours.

If your guest bathroom doesn’t get that much use, don’t forget to give it a regular dusting to ensure surfaces stay clean and shiny. Preventing the room from gathering dirt can stop it from smelling musty.

Provide nice, high-quality towels

It’s hard to beat the feeling of jumping out of a hot shower or warm bath and into a soft towel. Providing a set of fluffy towels is a simple and easy way to elevate any guest experience. A hand towel, bath towel and face cloth per person should be all that they need.

If your guests are staying for more than a night or two, don’t forget to give the towels a wash in a refreshing, scented laundry detergent to ensure they don’t start to smell. Alternatively, give them a fresh set of towels after a few days so your guests feel really taken care of.

Add some accessories

Guest bathrooms often get less attention when decorating because they’re used less frequently. Adding accessories and décor is a simple way to create a homely and welcoming space. Some great options for creating a bathroom sanctuary includes placing plants, trays, vases or even an Air Wick reed diffuser to provide a fresh scent around the room.

It’s easy to accessorise with your toiletries too. Keep soaps, shampoos, cotton swabs and tissues in matching glass containers to make your bathroom look less cluttered. Or store your spare toilet paper or towels in a decorative basket or storage bin. This will also help to give the room a more cohesive, put-together look. Also, why not add an Air Wick Crisp Linen & Lilac reed diffuser for a chic way to add in scent? It’ll look and smell great.

Add a scent

The perfect finishing touch to any room is adding a scent to help your guests settle in. You’ll want to use scents that are pleasant without being overwhelming. The best way to keep your bathroom smelling nice all day long is to add an Air Wick Automatic Spray. It fits discreetly into any bathroom and it releases bursts of continuous fresh fragrance that everyone will love. And you can create the ambience in the bathroom– opt for a spa-like sanctuary vibe with a Crisp Linen & Lilac Automatic Spray or a ‘relaxing in nature’ feel with the Spring Delight Automatic Spray. You’re sure to find something that will suit the atmosphere you want to achieve, while leaving your guests with a fresh-smelling bathroom.
