“The Proper Way to Get Rid of Urine Smell in the Bathroom” is a challenge many of us have faced. The pungent odor can be persistent, and no amount of scrubbing seems to do the trick. In this article, we will explore an effective method that not only eliminates the odor but also uses natural and cost-effective ingredients. Say goodbye to bathroom odors with this easy-to-follow guide.


Have you ever found yourself wondering, “How can I get rid of that persistent urine smell in my bathroom?” The odor of urine can be quite unpleasant and has a tendency to spread throughout your home. You may have already scrubbed your toilet vigorously, only to see the smell return shortly after.

At some point, you’ll be willing to do just about anything to rid your bathroom of this annoying smell. I’ve been there and understand the frustration. Fortunately, I discovered a method that offers immediate results.

The best part is that this method requires natural ingredients that won’t break the bank. You’ll need:

  • White Vinegar
  • Lemon Juice
  • Baking Soda
  • Measuring Cup
  • Washcloth
  • Toothbrush

1. Making and Applying the Paste

    • Squeeze fresh lemon juice into a bowl.
    • Add baking soda to the lemon juice to create a paste (ensure it’s not too runny but rather relatively thick).
    • Apply the paste to areas with urine traces or buildups (typically found at the base of the toilet, in the tank, under the rim of the bowl, or on the seat itself), and let it sit for 15 minutes.

2- Freshen the Toilet Tank

  • Remove the lid of the toilet tank and add half a cup of white vinegar. Let it sit for 15 minutes.

3- Clean in and around the toilet

  • While the paste is sitting, clean all areas around the toilet, such as the sink, walls, bathtub, and cupboards, using a sponge dipped in the lemon paste.
  • If you have shower curtains, wash them with half a cup of white vinegar in the last cycle to freshen them. Be sure to scrub them to eliminate any odors.
  • After the 15 minutes have passed, flush the toilet to rinse the tank. Flush 2 to 3 times before adding another half cup of vinegar and let it sit while you finish the cleaning process. If there is noticeable buildup along the tank walls, scrub it down with gloves.

4. Scrubbing with Vinegar

  • Pour vinegar onto a toothbrush and scrub the areas where the paste was applied around the toilet.
  • Afterward, scrub all other areas with a toothbrush, and use a washcloth to wipe away any residue left by the paste. If you notice residue buildup along the waterline in the toilet bowl, use a pumice stone to remove it.
  • Flush 2 or 3 more times to rinse out the vinegar in the tank.


With this comprehensive method, you can successfully eliminate the urine smell in your bathroom. By utilizing common household items like white vinegar, lemon juice, and baking soda, you’ll achieve a fresh and odor-free bathroom, all without breaking the bank. Say goodbye to persistent bathroom odors and enjoy a clean, fresh space.
