There are so many DIY cleaning recipes out there. I am a huge fan of the DIY all-purpose cleaners and I swear by them. Not only do I save a ton of money when I don’t buy the commercial ones but I am also aware of the ingredients. Some commercial cleaners are very harsh and contain ingredients that are toxic. I definitely do not want to use such things so I decided the best option out there is to DIY them and use natural ingredients.
But the all-purpose cleaner is not the only thing I DIY. I have an amazing recipe for a toilet bowl cleaner which you definitely should try out.
It removes stains, bad odors, and even germs. Don’t think that you can pour the mixture in the toilet bowl and it will magically do everything for you. Of course, you still need to use your toilet brush and scrub a little, however, it loosens the stains and makes the cleaning process a lot easier.
What you need:
- Baking Soda
- Disinfecting Essential Oil (for example, tea tree oil, lavender oil, etc.)
- White Vinegar
- Citric Acid (powdered)
Grab a glass mixing bowl and pour two cups of baking soda in it then add 1/2 cup citric acid.
Then add the essential oil – a couple of drops. Stir well with a wooden spoon after every drop so that you can manage to mix everything.
Pour the mixture in a glass jar.
What about the vinegar?
Yes, vinegar was one of the ingredients, however, you shouldn’t add it straight into the mixture you just made. You need to store it into a separate jar and add it directly to the toilet bowl when it’s time to clean it.
