There are probably many people who are trying their best to keep their houses clean without all the harmful substances; if you are one of them and want to try the eco-friendly ways of cleaning your bathroom, then you’re in the right place.
The sacred trinity of the eco-cleaning is vinegar, lemon, and baking soda.
Alcohol vinegar is very useful for cleaning because it removes almost everything, from stains to odors. You should use white, plain alcohol vinegar, nothing more. Although you can pour some baking soda or squeeze some lemon in it. You only shouldn’t use it on stone or marble surfaces. In combination with baking soda, it’s a lifesaver when it comes to clogged sinks.
This ingredient we use at home is a mildly abrasive, and you can use it for washing and polishing in your bathroom. If you put some in warm water you can wash your bin, shower curtains and all of your brushes, and you can use it to wash your windows and get rid of all the water stains on them.
All that sweet lemon juice
Lemon juice is often used in cleaning because it is a highly-effective stain and odor removal agent. Also, it can serve as a natural bleach. You can easily use it to remove, so be free to soak your taps in it from time to time.
The secret trinity of cleaning
We’re giving you the recipe to make your own homemade cleaning product from these three powerful ingredients. You will need 7 cups of water, ½ cup of the baking soda, 1/3 cup of the lemon juice, and ¼ cup of alcohol vinegar. Dissolve the soda in water, add a lemon juice and pour vinegar at the end, slowly. Wait for the chemical reaction to settle and then you can use it. This recipe is perfect for tile and grout cleaning. You can always use a toothbrush to clean grout lines.
The taps and faucets, the shower and shower curtains
