Well, I was hoping this day would never come however with all the good weather we have been having we have been out of the bus more than in most days, catching up with friends and family. Now with the rain coming down our bit of a lapse in the cleaning while the sun shone seems to have caught up with us ….. Our bus got its old smell back! 😦
Maybe it is the rain though … maybe that is all it is. Maybe just a bit of not getting the place ventilated enough? A bit of damp? Admittedly a wet/damp dog doesn’t help matters either. I don’t know but the smell was unmistakable when I walked in the door last week after being out and even himself smelt it …. yes, clearly it had a funky stink happening!
So it was a busy day of ‘Spring Cleaning’ as soon as the sun did appear – briefly. Everything out and airing, cupboards emptied and wiped and floors thoroughly swept (no … still have not made that dream of a vacuum come true) and washed. Along with that I have invested in a few natural house fresheners, my favourite being an orange with cloves stuck in it. Baking soda sales at the local supermarket have soared to as I have been using it to collect any nasty smells.
I’m not sure how the winter will go if we have rain for many days in a row??!! Luckily (or unluckily) we don’t notice it until we leave so maybe the solution will simply to be hermits until the sunshine allows us to open the windows to the fresh air. 🙂 Until then I’ll try to keep on top of things using a few of these natural and nifty ideas from Bustle.
Hope this finds you bathed in fresh air, lovely smells and sunshine
