Toilet Flushing Odors

If the wax ring is not sealed, it will simply push it between the floor and the bottom of the toilet into the room, instead of down the pipe. To eliminate the bathroom odor, you should reseal the toilet to the floor and the clear the main vent of debris. If you can’t do it yourself then call in a plumber.
