Ways to Eliminate the Smell of Elderly Patient

Chlorine treatment:

Chlorine is a radical and frequently used anti-stench remedy. The substance effectively resists bacteria and fights against all kinds of odors. Before proceeding with the cleaning, transfer the patient to another room. First, take a bucket and fill it with bleach. Dilute with water and thoroughly rinse all surfaces. If you do not have powder on hand, use a regular bleaching agent. Remember that chlorine can damage some materials. Do not use it when working with textile coatings and foam products.

Vinegar, soda, and hydrogen peroxide:

Vinegar can prove effective if you mix it with water in a 1: 1 ratio. Wipe the furniture with the resulting solution. Rub into the fabric as needed. Air the room. The room should dry well. Then, with a weak solution of manganese, repeat the same steps.

The strong smell of urine can be removed by following this pattern:

Remove moisture from damaged surfaces by blotting with a tissue or a dry cloth.

Dilute with half a glass of table vinegar, gently wipe the stain or surface and allow to dry.

Apply soda to the stain as required.

Take half a glass of 3% hydrogen peroxide, dilute it with 200 ml of water, and add a teaspoon of any detergent. After it is thoroughly mixed, using a spray gun, apply the liquid to the stain, sprinkle with soda. Make sure enough foam is formed.

Let it dry, then vacuum thoroughly.

Other remedies:


Take coffee beans and fry them in a frying pan, pass through a coffee grinder and sprinkle adequately on the problem areas.

Banana peel
