HOW To Get Rid Of URINE Smell In Your Bathroom

If you’ve been trying to get rid of the urine smell in your kid’s bathroom and its been really rough, you’re not alone.

You might have tried everything you know but that stench still persists, then it could be that your kids are constantly peeing the wrong way and in hidden areas of your bathroom.

Take the toilet seat off the hinges and clean around the bolts.

Actually, my son is 3 and while he getting much better at aiming, one miss and it seeps under the bolts.

You’ll need a screw driver but it’s super easy. You should also consider making a paste of oxy clean and letting it set for 10-15m really cleans out the tiles.

Also make sure you clean under the rim in the bowl, use gloves and a pumice stone for this.

Additionally, pee usually gets under the hinge and around the bolts, so taking the lid off to clean makes a huge difference.

Hidden areas the urine smell might be coming from?

  • Toilet seat hinge caps
  • That area above the seat and below the tank
  • Wax toilet bowl gasket
  • Bidet attachment
  • Toilet seat lid

How To Correctly Clean Your Bathroom?

In some cases, you might not be cleaning your bathroom the right way.

So here’s a detailed way to clean your bathroom correctly.

Begin by absorbing any excess urine on surfaces using paper towels or a cloth. This prevents further spreading and absorption into porous materials.

1. Clean with Disinfectant

Use a bathroom-specific disinfectant cleaner to thoroughly clean all surfaces affected by urine. Pay special attention to areas around the toilet, including the floor, base, and walls.

Ensure to use a cleaner that neutralizes odors effectively.

2. Scrub Thoroughly areas that are often-overlooked

Scrub all surfaces with a brush or sponge to dislodge any dried urine residue and eliminate odor-causing bacteria.

Focus on areas that may harbor hidden urine.

Toilet Seat Hinge Caps – Remove the hinge caps and clean them thoroughly with disinfectant cleaner. Wipe down the hinges and surrounding areas.

Area Above the Seat and Below the Tank – Use a long-handled brush or sponge to clean this often-overlooked area. Spray with disinfectant cleaner and scrub thoroughly to remove any urine residue.

Wax Toilet Bowl Gasket – Lift the toilet bowl carefully and clean around the wax gasket with disinfectant cleaner. Ensure to dry the area completely to prevent mold and mildew.

Bidet Attachment – If you have a bidet attachment, clean it thoroughly with disinfectant cleaner, paying attention to crevices and nozzles where urine may accumulate.

Toilet Seat Lid – Remove the toilet seat lid and clean both sides thoroughly with disinfectant cleaner. Pay attention to any hinges or grooves where urine may hide.

By following the above method and paying attention to hidden areas where urine may accumulate, you can effectively remove urine smell from the bathroom and maintain a fresh, clean environment.

What to do next?

If you think you’ve done all these correctly and somehow, the urine smell isn’t going or it keeps coming back stronger.

The next thing to do is to focus on your kid, especially if you’ve got a boy. As they’re growing, teach them how to properly aim and to use a tiny bit of tissue to catch the drip after he’s finished.

That last drip really adds up to the stench over many bathroom trips!

If he’s still making messes by 6 or seven, he’s old enough to have his own little pair of bathroom gloves and clean it himself (with your guidance, and eventually independently).

He’ll learn eventually. You just have to stay patient mama.
