One of the best ways to combat bad smells that build up in RVs is by using dehumidifiers.  These can be used at the campground or while the RV is in storage to cut down on mildew that may accumulate during rainy or humid weather.


Get a diffuser for your camper, and you’ll have the freedom to design your own scents!  Essential oils are a great way to keep your air smelling fresh, and they can even be used as aromatherapy to help you relax or clear up sinus pressure.  Peppermint essential oil can also be used as a pest deterrent when sprayed on countertops or around the corners and doorways of your RV.

Bathroom Smells

When you’re in tight quarters, no one wants to deal with the smells from the bathroom.  You can cut down on these unpleasant odors by using the campground’s bathroom facilities as frequently as possible.  Only using your RV’s toilet during the night can help to reduce unwanted odors significantly.

One of the best ways to eliminate unwanted smells in your RV is to keep your cleaning supplies handy.  Using lemon-scented cleaners will help keep your space smelling fresh and mask any harder to eliminate odors.  Keep your cleaning supplies in easy reach and try to wipe down surfaces after each use or at the end of the day to keep your space clean and smelling great.


Lastly, it’s essential to keep your camper’s trash cans empty if you want to eliminate unwanted smells.  Additionally, don’t let old food sit in the fridge or cabinets because they will begin to stink quickly.  Try keeping a large waste bin outside for emptying the small cans into or make a habit of taking the trash to the campground dumpsters on your way to the bathhouse.
