Recently when I shifted to my new place, I realised that my shower drainage emits a foul smell. I’ve tried clearing the gunk I found inside and flush it with hot water, but the smell keeps returning.
So I did some searching over the Web to see if there are other alternatives to kill the odor. I realized that commonly there are a few things people suggest that seems to refer to the same thing or may be I am just confused. Hmm…? There seems to be suggestions to use baking soda, bicarbonate of soda, and sodium carbonate. A little searching around these terms caught my attention that baking soda is not the same as baking powder, and bicarbonate of soda is not the same as baking soda. Hmm… now this sound complicated – huh? Then another article I found claims that both baking soda and bicarbonate of soda are the same where the former is the American version of the latter. I’m totally confused!
I’ve tried searching for these items in a popular supermarket here in Manchester and I found all these items on sale. So it seems like they are all different things. I am even more confused now.
To think of it, this sounds more like the ingredients for a baking recipe rather than eliminating the odor problem I had. So should I ask, how long do I bake it for? Lols…
If you are reading this and you know the answer to my problem, I would like to hear your comments. May be you can point out to me in particular, how do I use them; both to clean my toilet and to remove the odor for good. I will really appreciate it.
