I'm always interested in ways to save money on and DIY recipes for everyday things. I also consider that we're surrounded by poisons and chemicals all day, so why not use more 'green' options to clean your home? Many people believe that if it isn't filled with things you can't pronounce, then it must be formulated especially to do a great job. And many of them do. Along with the fact of the chemicals and what they're doing to your surfaces (did you know that Magic Eraser is actually an abrasive eraser?), the environment and your health, I have a sensitivity to strong scents. Unless the room is ventilated really well, I can barely breathe when using things like Easy off, Windex and Tilex. So I've been using only plain vinegar mixed with water mostly to clean many things in my house. It does a great job, but it's not the correct thing to use for everything. So I did some research and found some great ideas for cleaning products you can easily make at home for pennies. This post will focus on cleaning your bathroom.
First off, we'll start with a list of ingredients you'll need. Stock up on these few essentials and you'll never run out of cleaning supplies.
Now for the good stuff, here are some easy-to-make, effective cleaning products which are safe for your health and your home. Just make sure you head over to your local dollar store before starting to stock up on rags, sponges, spray bottles, jars, measuring cups/spoons and adhesive labels.
Shiny Surfaces (Tub, Tiles, Toilets, Sinks)
Soap Scum, Calcium and Lime Removers
Mold and Mildew Removers
So there you have it - a sparkling clean, wonderfully scented bathroom that didn't kill your wallet, brain cells or the environment!
If you have any suggestions for additions to the list, feel free to post in the comments.
Till next time!
