The Easiest Way To Clean Your Bathroom

Let’s face it, nobody likes to clean the bathroom.  But sooner or later, it has to be done.  Why not make cleaning quick and easy by using a few natural cleaners that you can probably find right in your own home?

To clean my bathroom, I basically use borax, vinegar, baking soda, and liquid soap.

To clean the sink, shower, tub, and tiles, I dilute some liquid soap and scrub with a nylon scrubbing pad….it’s that easy!  You can also scrub tub and tile surfaces with baking soda mixed with a small amount of water.

If there are any mildew spots, I usually scrub them with a solution of borax and water.  Mix a half cup of borax with one gallon of water.

Those annoying mineral deposits found around faucets can be cleaned by soaking a paper towel in vinegar and letting it sit on the deposits for about one hour.  After an hour wipe faucet down.

To clean the toilet bowl, I put 1/4 cup borax in the toilet bowl and let it sit either for a few hours, or overnight, depending on how much time I have to clean.  Clean around the toilet with a mix of borax (1/2 cup) and water (one gallon).

To clean those clogged drains, pour 1/4 cup baking soda down the drain, followed by 2 ounces of vinegar and let it sit for about 15 minutes.  Rinse with two quarts of boiling water.  I use this pretty often to prevent clogged drains.
