This post is part of a series called “35 Days of Favorites”, in honor of my 35th birthday. You can read more about the details here…
Alright, yesterday I wrote about how I buy natural laundry detergent, but today I’m sharing about how easy it is to clean your toilet with ingredients you have in your kitchen.
I used to buy the Norwex toilet cleaner, but it’s fairly pricey, so I switched to the homemade, because it’s the easiest thing ever.
Here’s what you do:
1) Pour about cup of vinegar into the toilet.
2) Sprinkle baking soda into the toilet.
3) Let it sit and fizz for about 10 minutes while you clean the rest of the bathroom.
4) Scrub with a brush, and you’re done.
It works fantastically well, it’s cheap and easy, and chemical-free. I keep a jug of vinegar and a box of baking soda with my cleaning supplies (which basically consist of a Norwex mop and rags).
I struggled with what kind of picture to include with this post – a photo of just a toilet wasn’t appealing to me, so here’s one of the whole bathroom!
For those of you who love your chemicals, you will be happy to know that I’m done with natural cleaning products posts now. There might be a few other natural things popping up, but this is it for the housecleaning!
And tell me: do you prefer chemical cleaners or natural products? Do you use a bit of both? Any products you can’t give up, no matter how bad they might be for the environment? (I confess – I have a bottle of Shout stain remover, for those emergencies when nothing else will do! There are some situations in which chemicals do a better job!)
