It doesn’t matter how much you care for your dogs, they will end up smelling in the end. It is how they are by nature so there is nothing you can do to eliminate the smell all together, the best you can hope for is reducing it to unnoticeable levels. The smell is bad enough if your house covers over a thousand square feet but if your house is on the smaller side then it gets completely intolerable.
There are many things you can do using simple ingredients already lying around the house to eliminate unpleasant odor and keep the house looking clean and smelling fresh.
If you have visited the supermarket recently, chances are that you will have a few potent natural deodorizers like vinegar and baking soda sitting in your pantry. These are both cheap and highly effective cleaners. Mix vinegar with water and you’ll have a strong cleaning solution that doubles up as an odor remover. Baking soda is ideal to remove odor from objects that that cannot be cleaned with liquids. Sprinkle a handful on items like big carpers, mattresses, curtains and some linens and vacuum them off after a while to remove any underlying odor.
The best way to get rid of stinky air inside the house is to open up all windows and cross ventilate the house. This will force out any stale air and bring in clean fresh air into the house. Stale air will intensify any underlying odor. If the weather outside is not ideal then you can use certain indoor plants that can neutralize any toxins in products you use to eliminate odor.
