Make Your Own Green Bathroom Cleaners
With just a few ingredients that you may already have around the house, you can make your own green bathroom cleaners.
Plain white distilled vinegar makes a great bathroom cleaner. Vinegar is a natural disinfectant and has many good uses in the bathroom. Try straight white vinegar for a great toilet bowl cleaner. Pour vinegar directly into the toilet bowl to effectively clean toilet rings. Add a sprinkling of baking soda for an even better, bubbling cleaner.
Tests show that drains are the germiest thing in the bathroom, while toilet seats harbor the least bacteria. Clean those drains with vinegar. Pour 2 cups white vinegar down bathroom drains several times a week. Read on for a more thorough natural method to unclog drains.
Vinegar and water in a spray bottle also makes mirrors and chrome fixtures shine.
Baking soda also makes a great soft scrubbing cleanser. Just add several drops of plain liquid soap to baking soda to make a paste. Scrub tub, tile or sink, and rinse thoroughly.
If you're looking for something to replace chlorine bleach, try hydrogen peroxide or lemon juice. To really pump up your all-natural cleaners, add any essential oil that has antibacterial properties. Tea tree, lavendar, and rosemary oils are good natural, sanitizing ingredients to add effectiveness to your homemade cleaners.
There are so many choices of green household cleaners out there, whether you choose to go commercial or homemade, nobody needs to compromise effectiveness for a better environment and a healthier home.
