When it comes to house cleaning…bathrooms might be toward the bottom of the list for most homeowners. Between tile, grout, toilets and mirrors, it adds up. Not many people enjoy bathroom cleaning, especially the toilet or the scum in the bathtub, but it has to be done. Cleaning the bathroom also takes the most amount of time, second only to cleaning the kitchen. At Green Cleaning DFW we are all about using natural products and solutions. Below are a few suggestions on cleaning your bathroom with natural products.
At the top of the list for bathroom cleaning is the toilet. Toilet cleaning can be aided by following a few tips. Once a week sprinkle some baking soda around the interior of the toilet, then dump undiluted vinegar in to the water. Use a reusable toilet brush to scrub the materials together. The chemical reaction will help remove any stains and lingering smells.
If you have kids that are potty training and making a little bit of a mess, you can use the same two components to clean the exterior of the toilet and the surrounding floor around the toilet.
Cleaning a mirror is very similar to cleaning a window. Use a 50/50 mixture of vinegar and water. If you have a microfiber cloth, use it to clean the mirror. If not, use an old cut-up t-shirt or newspaper. Paper towels tend to leave residue so an alternate material is best for mirrors and windows.
Counters, Tile, Showers and Bathtubs
For tile cabinets, countertops, cabinets and soap scum in the shower, a 50/50 water/vinegar solution will again a get the job done. If you have some larger build up in the shower, consider adding some baking soda with the water and vinegar solution to help clean it off. Four grout in tile flooring or tiled showers, sprinkle some baking soda on grout and add a little undiluted hydrogen peroxide.
