Hi, I have a relatively question regarding bathroom cleaning. I hope
some of you can help me out.
What should I use to get rid of or neutralize 'bad' smell on tile
grouts around the toilet area? The bathroom has medium sized ceramic
I know the stuff I use to clean the toilet bowl will do, but I want to
know if there's something less 'strong' as it says it is ONLY to be
used for toilet bowl and hard non porous surface. I've used PINE
cleaner but the smell comes back.
Thanks a lot.
If the area is cleaned with normal cleaners (only use the bowl cleaner
in the bowl) it will not smell.
My guess is the wax ring is going bad. That means sewer gas is coming
out under the toilet. IF that is true, you need to remove the toilet, make
sure that is the only problem and replace the wax ring. If that is the only
problem, it is an easy fix. If no, then it can get a little more complex.
If the whole thing scares you, call in the plumber.

I like Soft Scrub with Bleach (I have white grout), but I've never
really had an odor issue. Baking soda mixed with salt, turned into a
paste and allowed to sit for a while would probably work.

Stop by a janitorial supply house for products that work. The professionals
have the best possible products for dealing with misaimed public piddles.
Should this appraoch fail, you have a different problem, so follow the advice
of the other posts in this thread. Good luck.
