What Are Some Of The Best Cleaning Tips For Your Bathroom?

How often do you find yourself practically pulling out your hair because you can't seem to find the right cleaning agent to help you in your cleaning tasks at home?

Tired of trying to find the right solution? Too frustrated to keep on looking? Well, look no more! We have it all here in this article for you and we guarantee you full satisfaction after reading our suggestions.

We are going to concentrate on the bathroom.

  1. Toilets:

    For a heavy-duty toilet scrub that deodorizes while it cleans, pour cup of baking soda and about 10 drops of tea tree essential oil into the toilet. Add cup of vinegar to the bowl and scrub away while the mixture fizzes.

  2. Tub and Shower:

    Tubs and showers can produce some of the toughest grime, but it's no match for the cleaning power of vinegar. To get rid of mildew, spray pure white vinegar on the offending area, let it sit for at least 30 minutes, and then rinse with warm water (don't be afraid to use a sponge if rinsing doesn't clear away the grossness on its own). Alternatively, try mixing together baking soda with a bit of liquid castile soap, then scrub and rinse. For daily cleaning or to get rid of soap scum, mix 1 part water with 1 part vinegar (and a few drops of essential oils if you're not into the smell of vinegar) in a spray bottle. Spray, let it sit for at least several minutes, and then wipe away. For daily cleaning, fill a small spray bottle with vinegar (about 1 cup should do it) and a few drops of an essential oil of your choosing (lemon and tea tree both work well). Spray on the toilet seats, let it sit for a few minutes, and then wipe the surface clean.

  3. Disinfectant:

    Skip the bleach and make a homemade germ-killer instead. Just mix 2 cups of water, 3 tablespoons of liquid soap, and 20-30 drops of tea tree oil. Voila!

  4. Air Freshener:

    Defeat less-visible bathroom "uncleanliness" with this homemade, non-toxic air freshener. All you need is baking soda, your favorite essential oil, and an old jar with a lid you don't mind poking holes in.

  5. Hand Soap:

    Once you're done cleaning the bathroom, it's time to make yourself clean (or at least your hands). To make a non-toxic, foaming hand soap, mix together liquid castile soap and water (and an essential oil if you feel like it) in a foaming soap dispenser. Fill about one fifth of the bottle with soap, then top it off with water.
