School is officially over for the summer, and with holidays in full swing, the world is your oyster when it comes to travelling. For some, this may lead to family adventures in your home away from home. With everyone under one, small, mobile roof, the state of your living space can easily take a rapid decline. Not only that but with this mess also comes strong odours and caravan smells that can be highly difficult to neutralise. Even right down to the caravan fridge smells and waste tank odours. That’s why PowAir are here to help you neutralise motorhome odours this summer!

Despite having a lot less space to clean than your static home, we know that motorhomes need an equal amount of TLC. When small spaces are mixed with strong scents, these lingering odours have the possibility to last for up to 45 days! This means that the damp clothes that have met with your furniture or the smell of last night’s dinner can fester onto surrounding objects for over ONE MONTH! You wouldn’t let this happen in your static home, so why carry these odours around with you on your holiday? After all, it is unnecessary luggage.  This space will transport you and your family to memories that will last a lifetime! What’s better knowing that your accommodation was both positively fragrant and comfortable.

You’re proably wondering just how to neutralise motorhome odours successfully? Maybe you want to know what products you should use? How often should you clean your motorhome? How long does it take to clean your camper van to its full potential? Don’t worry! Here at PowAir we understand the struggle of trying to combat unwelcome odours and that is why we are here to help!

Airing out your space

Just like at home, opening windows and doors is a simple way to bring fresh air into your living space. By doing so, your motorhome is able to air out itself, releasing any foul smells, like wet dog or burned dinner. Doing this multiple times a week will leave you worry free knowing that there is nothing lingering in the air of your home!

Although opening windows and doors naturally cleans the air within your motorhome, another way to keep your space smelling fresh is by using odour neutralisers and diffusers. Not only are odour neutralisers able to disinfect the air, they are also capable of reducing foul smells on furniture, cushions, carpets and countertops. The best part is that there is no limit! Odour neutralisers can be used as frequently as possible in order to keep the smells away.

Emptying your bin

There’s no smell quite like a home cooked meal, but when it comes to living in a motorhome, the smell and crowded space allows it to linger for days to come. Not only can it cling to fabrics and furniture nearby, but there is also nothing worse than the small of last night’s left overs in the bin. By keeping as little waste as possible inside your motorhome, you are reducing the number of foul caravan smells in your living space and working to neutralise motorhome odours one step at a time.

Campsites have accessible waste bins and recycling points dotted around for you to use as and when you need. As well as this, by using the provided bins for your waste, you are less likely to be disturbed by ants or nightlife!

Tackling Caravan Fridge Smells

When travelling during hot weather and keeping opened items in your fridge or freezer, foul smells begin to produce as the food ages. When you’re on the road for a long period of time, these caravan fridge smells can almost become unbearable. One of the most popular hacks to combat these odours is to use diluted bicarbonate soda! Not only is this a cheap solution but it is also highly effective and can even be used in your static home too. Additionally, it’s a great idea to regularly clear out your motorhome’s fridge and freeze. This helps to prevent your food from going to waste and producing unwanted odours.

Tackling Caravan Fridge Smells

Caravan fridge smells aren’t the only odours to be aware of. Another location where foul smells commonly generate is the bathroom, and in particular, the toilet waste tank. When your living space has been reduced, it’s important now more than ever, to keep odours neutralised. Within camper vans, a variety of specialist plastics are used in order to manufacture the sinks and toilets and because of this they have a tendency to become damaged by bleach. It’s important when cleaning these areas that the correct specialist products are used in order to prevent damage to your home and neutralise waste tank odours and caravan smells effectively.

TIP: Our PowAir non-aerosol spray eliminates nasty odours (like chemical smells) safely and permanently. With proven industrial strength and refreshing aromatic scents, our sprays are non-toxic, pet safe and cruelty free. Use as often as necessary to clear the air and keep your motorhome feeling fresh. PowAir can be used anywhere unwanted odours are present, just like the waste tank! Available in three scents: Passion Fruit, Tropical Breeze and Apple Crumble.
