Oh Baby! How to Remove Baby Room Odors

How to Safely Remove Odors in Nurseries

Have you ever walked into your child’s nursery and channeled Will Smith Independence Day and exclaimed, “…and WHAT is that smell!?” Well, have no fear, Fresh Wave is here to save the day.

Start with the Diaper Pail

Diaper pails and trash cans are essential items in any baby room, but they can also be a source of unpleasant odors. The dirty diaper smell in your house and other waste can linger and make it less pleasant for both you and your baby. Fortunately, there are several ways to eliminate these odors and keep your baby’s room smelling fresh and clean.

One effective solution is to use a Fresh Pod deodorizer packThese packs contain a special blend of natural ingredients that neutralize odors and leave a pleasant, fresh scent. Simply stick a Regular or Lavender Fresh Pack to the inside lid of your diaper pail and it will work for up to 30 days. This is a convenient and easy way to keep odors under control without the need for frequent cleaning or the use of harsh chemicals.

Another way to eliminate odors from your diaper pail and trash can is by using an odor eliminating spray like Fresh Wave. This spray is made with natural ingredients such as water, lime, clove and cedarwood, which work together to neutralize odors and leave a fresh, clean scent. Simply spray the inside of your diaper pail or trash can before you add a new bag or before you dispose of the trash. This will help to prevent odors from building up and keep your baby’s room smelling fresh. You can even try our Lavender or Lemon scented sprays to add a pleasant smell to your odor-removing ritual.

Regular cleaning is also important in keeping the odors at bay. You should clean the diaper pail and trash can regularly, and make sure to wash or replace the bags or liners as needed.

It is also important to not overfill the diaper pail or trash can, as this can cause the waste to become compacted, making it harder to control odors. Always make sure that there is enough space in the container for air to circulate and prevent odors from building up.

Eliminate Odors in the Air and Near the Changing Station

To keep the nursery smelling fresh as a new baby, place a Fresh Wave Odor Removing Gel on a shelf or near your changing station for 24/7 odor removal. Our odor eliminating gels works around-the-clock removing odors without omitting any masking fragrances or use of harsh chemicals. So safe for you and your little one.

Use a Safe Odor Eliminating Laundry Booster

For cloth diapers, towels or just extra laundry freshness, use Fresh Wave Laundry Booster to tackle tough odors. Two capfuls of Laundry Booster will remove deep-seeded odors from cloth diapers, clothing, linens, stuffed animals, and blankets.

Essential oils are a natural and effective way to eliminate odors from a baby’s room, including those caused by dirty diapers. These oils are derived from plants and have distinct aromas that can be used to freshen up a room and create a pleasant ambiance.

One popular method for using essential oils to eliminate diaper odors is to add a few drops of the oil to a diffuser. This disperses the aroma throughout the room and can help to neutralize any unpleasant odors. Some of the best essential oils to use for this purpose include lemon, tea tree, and peppermint.

Another way to use essential oils to eliminate diaper odors is to add a few drops to a cloth or cotton ball and place it inside the diaper pail. This will help to absorb any odors and leave the room smelling fresh and clean.

Additionally, you can also make your own all-natural room spray by mixing water and essential oils such as lavender, eucalyptus, or lemon in a spray bottle. This can be used to freshen up the room quickly and easily, and can also be used to freshen up bedding, curtains and other fabrics.

Essential oils are versatile and can be used in many creative ways to eliminate bad smells and freshen up a baby’s room. It’s always recommended to test the oils before using it on baby clothes or directly on the baby’s skin as some oils may cause irritation or allergic reactions.
