Lately It seems like there are more and more home and cleaning accounts appearing on social media, and while they are fun to watch, it seems like they are using endless amounts of products to clean one room. This not only leads to lots of waste but lots of toxic fumes in the home as well. If the product says that it is harmful to aquatic life on the bottle, then it is going to be harmful to you too. There are plenty of natural ways to clean that are going to better for you, your home, and the environment.
Cleaning the Toilet
Cleaning the toilet can be a challenge, but one that is so important to get right. But did you know that you probably already have something in your kitchen cupboard at home that can do the job? Well, if you like baking, of course. Bicarbonate of Soda, when it is mixed with water, can have a bubbling effect that can help to clean and degrease. So mix eight teaspoons of bicarbonate of soda into the toilet bowl and then leave overnight. You can also use the soda neat on a cloth to clean the toilet lid and all round the toilet. Wipe with a damp cloth afterwards. A few drops of lemon essential oil can help to create an amazing scent too.
Cleaning Shower Panels
If you have a glass screen on your shower or have acrylic shower panels, you will know how much of a nuisance cleaning limescale off them can be. It really shows up when there is limescale, and it isn’t what you want when you want a clean and shiny looking shower. Did you know that white wine can be used as an eco-friendly cleaner for your shower screen? All you need to do is to pour it onto the screen, leave for about half and hour, and then wipe with a dry and soft cloth. It can be a great way to remove limescale and stains in the bathroom, and again, you are likely to already have some in the house.
The bathroom is a great place to get ready, and for that reason there are so many reasons why having a mirror in the bathroom is a good idea. But with the steam, humidity, and other things going on in the bathroom, it can get pretty dirty pretty quickly. But there are natural ways to clean a mirror and still have it shine. In a spray bottle, put together a 50/50 mix of water and white vinegar (again, you could add in a few drops of essential oil like lemon can make the smell amazing). Spray it, wipe it, and then use newspaper scrunched up to perfect the shine on the mirror. You don’t need lots of chemicals to clean; it is so easy to do that naturally.
Your bathroom is one of the rooms in the home that, naturally, gets pretty dirty. So with that in mind, these are some of the most natural ways that you can clean your bathroom, but still get rid of germs and leave it all smelling amazing. Have you given any of these a try before?
