According to Choice.com, “⅓ of Australian bathroom cleaners sold in Australia contain bleach”.
After reading all the recent reports about how bleach has been found to cause a higher risk of infections, its a way smarter choice to use natural alternatives.
So if you, like me, are worries about the health effects of chemical cleaners, its time to DIY!
Natural Toilet Cleaner
● ½ cup baking soda
● 1 cup distilled white vinegar
● ½ teaspoon tea tree essential oil
Mix oil and vingar in a spray bottle, and spray onto the surface of the toilet. Allow it to sit for a couple of minutes before sprinking over baking soda and scrubbing with a toilet brush. Wipe away solution with a clean cloth, and flush toilet. Done, a sparkley white toilet bowl!
Vinegar is an awesome cleaner because it: disinfects, eliminates odors, and is non-toxic.
Sink Stain remover:
● Baking soda
● Lemon juice
Combine roughly equal parts of all ingredients to create a paste and spread onto sink. Leave for a few minutes and scrub to remove stains. Voila!
Mirror/ Glass Cleaner:
● 2 cups of water
● 2 tablespoons vinegar
● 10 drops essential oil of choice- I use lemon
Combine all ingredients in a spray bottle, and clean with a microfiber cloth, or newspaper. Streak-free, shiny glass the natural way!
