We’ve all experienced the dread when something in our house smells. It hardly even matters what’s causing the offensive odor, we just want to take care of it as fast as possible! It’s tempting to go straight for the flowery sprays, but wouldn’t you rather treat the cause instead of the symptom? Try out these hacks to keep your house smelling fresh and clean.
1) Raid the Kitchen Pantry
If those bad smells remain even after you’ve done your best to clean, don’t worry! There are easy ways to remove stink from your home, and you probably have the materials needed in your kitchen pantry. If the smell’s contained in a small space, put some baking soda in a shallow bowl and leave it in there. Its chemical composition can react and bond to tons of other chemicals, which is the main cause of those bad smells. After a few days, the area will be smelling as good as new.
Vinegar reacts similarly after a little bit of prep, and is ideal for less localized odors. Put some vinegar on the stovetop and let it simmer until your house is smelling fresh again. Don’t worry, you’re not just replacing the smell with vinegar, since the chemicals actually bind together and neutralize. As an extra tip, if you need a real powerhouse cleaning solution, mix the baking soda and vinegar together. The foamy solution will clean and freshen at the same time!
2) Add Lemons to Your Kitchen Cleaning
Food smells are one of the worst odor offenders, so the kitchen can be the source of a lot of nasal pain. But food is also the answer to the problem! Lemons are great for cleaning out the cause of food smells, since their acidity tends to break down any crumbs or chunks that are causing problems. You can use them pretty much anywhere in your kitchen: cut one in half and stick it in the fridge, run lemon slices through the garbage disposal, or add some lemon juice to your dishwasher detergent.
3) Make a Laundry Run
Fabric is notorious for holding onto odor, and may be the cause of those lingering smells you can’t seem to shake. Don’t just get your clothes clean – grab any seldom washed blankets, towels, sheets, or even cushion covers and throw them in the wash. A couple extra loads can go a long way in freshening your home.
As a bonus tip, try taping some spare dryer sheets over your air vents. While not necessarily an odor remover, this will still send that nice clean-clothes smell wafting through your entire home.
4) Clear Out Your Bathroom Drains
Just think of all the dirt, hair, and other odorous materials that go down your shower and sink in the bathroom. If the buildup is starting to cause problems, there are a few solutions besides just unclogging the drain (which doesn’t always solve the problem). Baking soda makes a comeback – you’ll want to pour about a half cup of the stuff down the drain. Follow it up after a few minutes with white vinegar, and then follow that up about 10 minutes later with some boiling water to clear absolutely all of the gunk out of the drain.
5) Eliminate Bathroom Odor with NoMO
Remove bathroom odor right from the source with NoMO: No More Odor. NoMO’s inlet attaches right underneath your toilet seat, and a simple wave of the hand activates its powerful motor. All bathroom stink will be removed from the toilet, and treated with NoMO’s all-natural activated charcoal filter. This doesn’t just cover up the odor – it totally removes it, and even returns clean air to the environment. Stop hiding behind harmful chemicals, and start eliminating those smells with NoMO!

“NoMO works amazingly well”
I purchased two of your products for my house. They work amazingly well. I love the product and tell all my friends. I intend to buy two more units for the rest of the house.

“I have 3 sons and NoMO has saved my bathroom…”
I was already worried about what our guests would think going into the bathroom, but with NoMO I know that the smell will be totally taken care of! Even I can go into the bathroom without holding my nose, and I have a very sensitive sense of smell.

This product works amazingly well. There is literally no odor left behind in the bathroom when using the NoMO. I completely disagree with a previous reviewer that mentioned it being hard to install. While I realize that everyone has a different skill level, if you can use a screwdriver, you will have no problems installing this. The cost seemed a little high at first, but once installed and I used it I realized that it is a bargain. It is very well made and I like the fact that it is cordless and the batteries are rechargeable. If you are considering the NoMO, I would not hesitate to buy it.

“Excellent product and was pleasantly surprised…”
Our household has tried other products attempting similar results in the past and none left me too impressed. NoMO was easy to install, easy to use, blends in with the bathroom, looks great and works very well. I’ll be ordering a second one for our second bathroom – very pleased with this purchase!!

“I highly recommend NoMO!”
I ordered two NoMO’s for my office and everyone is loving it! No more embarrassing moments of running from the bathroom to my desk hoping nobody noticed it was me. NoMO keeps the air fresh and no more potpourri!

“Makes bathrooms bearable!”
This product has worked wonders! I got one for my roommate and now we share our bathroom in peace.

“End result is no smell… awesome!”
My wife bought this and at first I thought, oh great another internet buy. I didnt think this would work at all. Turns out, I was wrong. It runs a little loud but I dont mind as it really isnt much louder than the bathroom fan which I use anyway. The end result is no smell… awesome!
Donny T. Santa Fe, NM
“NoMO is amazing”
NoMO is amazing – as soon as I wave my hand and stand the air smells fresh and clean. It’s a little noisy, so everybody knows it’s running, but the end result is worth the little embarrassment.
Taylor H. Omaha, NE
“Couldn’t resist the purchase”
NoMO has been a great addition to our home! After seeing all of the features on their website, I couldn’t resist the purchase. I was a little worried about the price, but it has been totally worth it.
Nicholas B. Boulder, CO
“It really works!”
Sometimes I have to wave my hand back and forth a few times, but once it gets going, it really works!
Tina P. Cincinnati, OH
“Thank you NoMO!”
I don’t have to hold my breath in the bathroom after my husband anymore. Thank you NoMO!
Beth A. Durham, NC
“Love the NoMO so far”
Love the NoMO so far. Easter weekend the family will be here, time to put it to the test!
Nic A. Lubbock, TX
My apartment here in Brooklyn will never be the same. Thanks NoMO!!!

“Loyal customer over here”
Skeptical at first when I purchased. Installed it last week and LOVE IT had to come back and review it for the company to spread the word. Loyal customer over here!
Bruce S. Reno, NV
“Still going strong NoMO makers!”
Have had my unit for a month now and I haven’t had to recharge it once. Still going strong NoMO makers!
Trevor H. Richmond, VA
“This thing is great”
If I would afford to buy a NoMO for every toilet in the office I would, this thing is great I am really satisfied with my purchase. Installed the one for my house and love it. Not often I come back and review products I buy online but I had to spread the word for this new game changer.
Jordan J. Austin, TX
“Does what it says”
Really happy with my product. Does what they say and was shipped super quickly. Will eventually get another for the kids bathroom.
Doug M. Tempe, AZ
“I would buy another”
Price was a little steep but I would buy another after using it a few times. I like the soft fan noise the motor makes so its not just dead silent while im in the bathroom. Luckily I got a good deal with the email sign up.
Jennifer L. Garden Grove, CA
“Made a big difference in my home”
Installation was way easier than I expected. Had never removed my toilet seat before but it was just unscrewing two easy screws on the back of the toilet. Got the nomo on in under two minutes. Haven’t looked back since, I love the product it’s made a big difference in my home with two roommates.
Khiry Y. Pembroke Pines, FL
“Everyone has positive things to say”
I saw this on a Facebook ad couldn’t help but click and ended up purchasing. Shipping was great I received my purchase in three days and the shipping was free! Box was pretty cool and made it clear how installation was suppose to go down. Taking off my toilet seat was super easy I didn’t have any problems there. Then all you have to do is put down the holder plate and screw back on your toilet seat and charge the nomo. Says online that the charge lasts two months and it takes two hours to charge fully. Thats pretty cool, I didn’t like the idea of having to buy batteries all the time. Have used the product a few times already and everyone in the house has positive things to say about it. Makes the downstairs bathroom next to the living room everyones favorite bathroom to go in. At least my living room doesn’t stink! Would highly recommend the nomo to friends and family!

Remove toilet seat and place inlet over screw holes.
Install inlet and reinstall toilet seat. Then, insert the filter into the housing lid.
NoMO vacuums toiler air from its inlet located directly under the toilet seat, scrubs the air in its Complex AC Filtration system, and returns purified and odor-free air to the environment. You can both activate and deactivate NoMO using either touchless activation via its motion-detecting sensors, or through a manual button press.
NoMO has Touchless or Manual activation for both on and off states. Simply wave your hand in front of NoMO’s motion-activated sensor, and it will turn on for a two minute cycle, after which it will automatically turn off. If you would like to turn off NoMO earlier, simply wave your hand again to deactivate the cycle. In Manual mode, simply press the button on the front of your NoMO for the same results as touchless mode.
Yes! NoMO’s bowl mount simply clips onto the side of your toilet bowl. For the seat mount, all you have to do is remove the lid, place the NoMO inlet on the bowl aligning the mounting holes, and reinstall the seat lid on top of the inlet.
In Manual mode, touch the Power button and NoMO will activate for a 2-minute cycle. Press the button again to end the cycle early. In TouchLess mode, slowly wave your hand in front of the sensor and NoMO will activate for a 2-minute cycle. Another hand wave will end the cycle early.
