Natural Toilet cleaner and disinfectant
First let’s talk about the toilet. If you want to get rid of all the chemical products, but still want a shiny and germ-free toilet bowl white vinegar is just perfect for you. Just pour or spray the vinegar all over the inside of your toilet bowl and leave it for 10-15 minutes to work its magic. Then scrub the sides a bit to remove any remaining residue and flush. Voila! Sparkly white toilet bowl no chemicals used.
Natural multipurpose cleaning spray
This spray is perfect for many surfaces and applications; it works wonders and smells nice too. Here’s how to make it:
Take an empty bottle with a spray pump and fill it half with vinegar. Ill in the other half with water and add in a few drops of essential oil. Shake it well to mix it up and spray away the dust and dirt. This quantity will last for a few months, depending on how often you clean and how much space you clean. It’s perfect for almost all surfaces. It can clean the shower and bathtub from light lime scale (for more deep cleaning check the third solution), the bathroom sink as well, it can clean and disinfect the toilet seat and all the other bathroom surfaces, kitchen tops, shiny metal faucets and shower heads, mirrors, windows and glass surfaces and ceramic hobs as well. It’s very efficient and more importantly chemicals-free.
Natural bathtub and kitchen sink cleaning scrub
The bathtub must be the last thing you clean in the house but not anymore. This method makes cleaning the bathtub just as easy as cleaning any other surface in the house. For this scrub you just need baking soda and nothing more.
First wet the surface you’re cleaning (bathtub or sink) and sprinkle baking soda on it. Take a wet sponge and scrub the surfaces. While doing it you’re also exercising your arms, so it’s a win-win situation. After you’ve finished wash away all the soda and admire the pearly white bathtub. It’s also very gentle so it won’t damage the enamel at all. Just be careful not to use it on a surface that isn’t stainless steel, but mostly everything in your bathroom has to be, so you don’t have to worry too much.
There you have it, three do-it-yourself cleaning methods which will save you money, preserve the environment and keep you and your family healthy. I’m sure that it will make your cleaning experience much more enjoyable.
