Most parents spend around $2,000 outfitting their baby’s nursery, according to Care.com. But there are some parents that are spending thousands more. Regardless of how much the furniture, decor, and stuffed toys in your child’s room cost, there’s one thing that all nurseries have in common, and that’s a rang of smells. To keep your little one’s nursery smelling fresh, parents should use a Smelleze® Reusable Nursery Smell Deodorizer Pouch and follow these odor-eliminating tips.
Open the window
Most babies will go through 2,500 diapers in their first year. Even if just half of these nappies are changed and disposed of in your baby’s room, that’s a whole lot of nasty and unpleasant smells lingering around. The Smelleze® Reusable Nursery Smell Deodorizer Pouch will work to eradicate these smells altogether, but it’s also worth opening the window on a daily basis to let plenty of fresh air into the room. Energuide states that opening a window for just 15 minutes per day is enough to air the room out and banish bad odors, so it’s easy enough to do without letting your baby get cold.
Deep clean your baby’s bedding
It is highly recommended that you buy your baby a new mattress and bedding for his or her crib. Unfortunately, it’s not uncommon for babies to have accidents that cause their nappies to leak when they’re asleep. This is then absorbed by the mattress and leaves a lingering smell in their bedroom. Sprinkling some Smelleze® Natural Urine Smell Deodorizer Granules on the bed and sweeping or vacuuming them up will help to restore your baby’s bedding to a like-new condition and will instantly improve the smell of your little one’s nursery. A waterproof mattress for a child is also recommended as it can be wiped clean and limits the amount of body fluids that are soaked up. In addition, a mattress that is made of antimicrobial and antibacterial materials will reduce bacteria following any spills.
Diffuse essential oils
The American Association of Naturopathic Physicians advises against essential oils being used around infants under 3 months. For best results, you should deal with the cause of the bad smell first with a reusable deodorizer, such as sprinkling Smelleze® Natural Diaper Pail Deodorizer Granules in your diaper pail. From there, you can enhance and lift the smell of the entire room by opening windows.
It’s all too easy for a baby’s nursery to be plagued by bad smell after bad smell. Thankfully, this isn’t something that you have to put up with. By utilizing various reusable deodorizing products as well as regularly opening the window, cleaning all bedding, and putting on a diffuser, your baby’s nursery will smell as fresh as a daisy in no time.
