Easy Homemade Bathroom Cleaner

Posted by Hallee on Jul 6, 2011 in Housekeeping, Stewardship |

I was out of bathroom cleaner the other day, and decided to find a recipe to make one.

I found a really complicated recipe – three different kinds of essential oils, a soap, some household products.  Seemed like a science experiment.  The next place I looked, I saw one that had two simple ingredients.  I thought I’d try that one first, for the ease of the simplicity.  I figured if I didn’t like it, I could start getting more complicated.

I took half a cup of baking soda and added vinegar to it until it formed a paste.  It was about 2 Tablespoons.

Using a clean sponge, I rubbed the paste into the bathtub and scrubbed.  I don’t think the pictures do justice to how clean the bathtub and shower became.  The paste rinsed away easily.

 

I did the same thing to the toilet and the sink.  I just put a towel all around the bottom of the toilet and used a small cup to rinse the paste off of the outside of the bowl.

Vinegar is a disinfectant, so there wasn’t a need to clean with any other product. Baking soda and vinegar neutralize each other – making vinegar not a disinfectant.  You can use vinegar and essential oils to disinfect, and you can make a paste with baking soda and water to scrub – but you can’t mix the two together to disinfect.

I worried that the room would smell like vinegar, but it did not at all.  Instead, it smelled fresh, clean and sparkled.

The amount of paste I made was exactly enough to clean my bathtub, shower, sink, and toilet.  There was no need to store excess – I’ll just make it again when I need to clean again.

It was easy, SUPER INEXPENSIVE, and effortless to use.  I will not be buying bathroom cleaner again.
