Conventional cleaners can be effective but have an array of side effects. While some contain toxic ingredients, they can be detrimental to the health of humans and cause skin irritation, breathing issues and even harm to the central nervous system. While commercial cleaning agents are often not noticeably harmful, there are alternatives to the chemical laden cleaners. Easy and DIY homemade cleaning agents can be equally effective and inexpensive. Here are some natural cleaning solutions for one of the grimiest spots in the house: the bathroom.
Moldy showers. Dirty toilets. Gunky sinks. The bathroom can be a real smorgasbord of dirtiness but there are natural solutions to get this frequented spot clean.
All-Purpose Bathroom Cleaner
Mix equal parts water and vinegar and heat in a glass bowl. If desired, add a few drops of a favorite essential oil like orange or lemon for additional germ fighting properties.
A mixture of a green all-purpose cleaner like Puracy followed by a sprinkle of baking soda should make the loo shine and sparkle.
Try an enzyme based cleaner like Nature’s Miracle to unclog sticky and clogged drains with friendly microbes. A mixture of half a cup of baking soda followed by half a cup of vinegar could also do the trick.
Countertops and Sinks
While makeup spots and toothpaste might seem to necessitate a strong chemical concoction, there are easy alternatives. Try Castille soap for cleaning up those gunky dribbles.
