What Does Clean Smell Like?

The majority answer to this question is “bleach”. Our brains have been programmed to associate clean with the smell of bleach.

Did you know?*

  • Bleach is a strong corrosive material; it provides a risk of damaging your home to items such as fixtures, tubs/showers, grout, flooring, etc.
  • It is an irritant for eyes, skin and respiratory systems
  • If bleach is ingested by an adult, child or pet it can cause pulmonary edema, vomiting or a coma
  • When bleach is mixed, either purposely or accidently, with other cleaning agents it creates a gas that can prove fatal if inhaled

At Maid Spot we have an excellent alternative to bleach and although the smell of the product is sometimes “underwhelming” compared to a bleach based product it is safe for your home, family and pets!

Our all-purpose product kills 99.9% of common bacteria and is also a virucide killing viruses such as HIV-1 and Influenza-2. It is a deodorizer therefore eliminating odors by penetrating the surface and oxidizing to kill the source of the odor instead of replacing them with a new harsh smell.

It is safe on any surface that is water safe and is also rendered PH-neutral making it an excellent de-greaser providing residue free cleanings.

We have recently began using a new product known as a fabric refresher (similar to a Febreeze) to provide our customers that request it, a more “clean smell” in their homes! Did you know that Febreeze is highly toxic? It is the reason we choose not to utilize that product here at Maid Spot. Instead we partnered with Shaklee to utilize a product of theirs to create an eco-friendly version of smell good stuff.

Some other alternate ways to eliminate odor in your home include:

  • Houseplants
  • Air it out (hang from a clothes line in the sunshine)
  • Wash the item with the odor, spot clean if it cannot be washed or check with your local laundry mat to see what heavy duty items they can accommodate
  • Put a carton of baking soda in the room where the odor is occurring

Remember there are always great alternatives to toxic cleaning products that still have powerful cleaning and sanitizing properties. At Maid Spot we’ve gone through several different types of products and done quite a bit of research. Feel free to call (904) 900-1777 or email This email address is being protected from spambots.
