we have a half dirt half cement basement, which tends to track in a lot of spiders and bugs. so my dad put down mothballs just to come to the conclusion a few days later that they were too strong so he vacuumed them up and let the house air out, the only place where you can still smell them faintly is my bedroom, i've tried burning candles and putting an airwick plugin in. i'm having a guest over in a couple of days and want the smell to be gone, how can i get it gone within two days?
smelling mothballs is bad for your health. you should get rid of them or just some. if you have a window, make the room freshen up with new air. also, if you boil vinegar with water, the vinegar smell spread and alfter a few hours, your whole entire house will smell of nothing.
I own a maid and cleaning service; and a few doses of Febreeze should do the trick. If not go to a local Home Depot; there are many commercial strength odor removers that can be purchased there.
I like to use a linen spray that makes my entire room smell fresh ! Or you can clean your room with Vodka (Yes, it's a great cleaner) or bleach and the smell should go away.
You can either tell your mum to get rid of em or just enjoy them.. some people love em..
