The ‘Mom Of Boys’ Guide To Getting That Gross Smell Out Of Your Bathroom

My husband is one of three boys, and I can only imagine the things they put their poor mother through growing up. If you, too, are a parent to boys, you don’t need me to tell you that they tend to be slightly more wild and messier than little girls. And this train of thought definitely applies to a bathroom used by little boys, especially when potty training.

If you’ve potty trained or are potty training a little boy, you already know that their business doesn’t always end up in the toilet. And that’s exactly where this mom’s clever hack comes in. Priscilla Raquel Lloyd took to Facebook to share her secret for deodorizing her bathroom that’s currently in use by three little boys. And if you’re a parent to boys, you’re going to want to know about it!

Priscilla explained that classic cheapo shaving cream will remove the smell of urine from your bathroom floor and the trim around the toilet. She added that she always cleans the area first with a bleach-based cleaner to disinfect, but as a mom of three boys who are in potty training, the stale smell lingers. That’s why every once in a while, they follow with a shaving cream slather to remove that stale urine smell.

If you’re going through potty training and are worried your bathroom will never quite smell the same again, this hack seems like it’s definitely worth a shot. Thanks for sharing, Priscilla!
