Ground coffee in the bidet
If you have ever experienced the problem of bad odors coming from the bidet, you have probably also tried various remedies and tricks to solve it, but without success. However, an easy and inexpensive solution is to use coffee grounds. The procedure is simple, economical and effective. Let’s see how it works.

Bad odors in the bidet: the causes
The bidet can give off bad odors for various reasons. First, stagnant water inside the drain can create an environment conducive to the growth of bacteria and mold. Secondly, if your bidet’s drain system is blocked or damaged, water may not drain properly.

This would cause stagnation of water and the subsequent formation of unpleasant odors. Additionally, using cleaning products in this part of the bathroom that contain harsh chemicals can upset the delicate balance of the drain system and cause more odor problems.

Because coffee grounds can eliminate bad odors from the bidet
But why should we use coffee grounds to eliminate bad odors from the bidet? Simple: First of all, coffee is an excellent odor absorber. Its characteristic aroma is due to the presence of some substances, such as chlorogenic acid and caffeine.

These substances not only give coffee its characteristic aroma, but are also capable of neutralizing odors. When we use coffee grounds, these substances combine with the bad odors present in the bidet, neutralizing them and leaving it fresh and clean.

How to use ground coffee in the bidet
The procedure to say goodbye permanently to unpleasant odors coming from the bidet is very simple to carry out. Let’s start by combining 1 liter of hot water with 4-5 teaspoons of ground coffee. We mix the mixture well and then pour it down the drain and along the walls. Let it act for about 10 minutes, so that the mixture acts on bad odors. After 10 minutes, pour some hot water to flush the drain and prevent it from clogging.

Finally, we wash the bidet normally. Bad odors will finally disappear! The procedure can be repeated at least twice a week, to keep the bidet fresh and clean. However, if bad odors persist, you may need to check if there is a problem with the bidet’s drainage system. If so, you should contact a plumber for an evaluation.

Advantages of this trick
The trick we just illustrated is simple to implement, but it also saves money. In fact, coffee is a natural and inexpensive ingredient, and can also be used for other household purposes, such as cleaning pots and pans and removing odors from the refrigerator.

But even cleaning surfaces such as the sink and ceramic hob finds great advantages in the use of coffee. Its use for cleaning the bidet is therefore a convenient solution from an economic point of view. And then, it is ecological, since it does not require the use of harsh chemicals.

In conclusion, using coffee grounds to eliminate bad odors is an easy, economical and ecological solution. Coffee is an excellent odor absorber and can also be used for other household purposes. The process takes a few minutes and is safe for the environment because it does not require the use of harsh chemicals. Remember to repeat the process at least twice a week, and you will keep your bidet fresh and clean!
