Urine, Sour Milk, Vomit – Carefully mop up what you can. Make a mixture of 2 tbsp baking soda and 2 cups hot water, spray on generously and leave to dry, then vacuum up. Repeat the process if necessary.

Refrigerators – Use a paste of 1.2 cup baking soda mixed with a little water to clean out your fridge. The paste not only gets it clean but takes away from any odours that may be lurking around as well.

Vacuum Cleaner – put a few tablespoons onto the surface you are about to vacuum, then vacuum it up and leave in the cleaner until next time.

Rooms – Put a some baking soda in a shallow bowl and leave uncovered in the offending room for a few days, if it’s particularly smelly you may need to leave two.

Carpets – Liberally sprinkle baking soda all over the odorous area, you’ll need to thoroughly cover the area so you can barely see the carpet. Distribute into the fibres by gently rubbing with a brush. Leave for 24 hours then vacuum up.

Car odour – Sprinkle on the seats and floor, leave overnight then vacuum, redo the process for particularly bad smells, you can also leave baking soda in the carpet for a few days if necessary.

Drain or waste disposal – A few tablespoons straight down the drain can help, run the hot tap for about 30 seconds.

Shoes – Baking soda sprinkled into the offending shoe and left overnight does the trick, empty in the morning and wipe clean.
