Do foul odors coming from my toilet mean it needs repair?

Keeping Foul Toilet Odors At Bay

If your bathroom suffers from more than an unusual dose of foul toilet odors, you may have a problem which needs a simple solution. The trap leading to your toilet carries water that acts as a seal to odors that can seep into your household. When a fixture is rarely used and the water evaporates, foul toilet odors can become very unpleasant. All you have to do is take a bucket of water and pour it into the trap leading to your toilet as well as the sink, shower, and drain in the bathroom. This will prevent the nasty smells from seeping into the rest of your home.
