You will know I am a big fan of natural cleaning products and avoiding harsh chemicals. But what are the best bathroom fittings and appliances? Sam Jones has written this guest post for us …
Lets face it, many of you consider cleaning the bathroom a dreaded chore. From dirt on the tile to stains on the sinks, it is indeed not an easy job! Beware though, resorting to the use of harsh cleaners with toxic chemicals. This can pose danger not only to your health but the environment as well. The good news is that there are natural cleaning methods that hold a lot of promise in restoring the look and shine of the bathroom while being eco-friendly.
Whether it is in the case of traditional or freestanding tubs, including those that are from Badeloft, stains and water rings are some of the most common problems. Over time, the tub becomes stained and yellowish. To bring back its shine, a simple cleaning solution would be a mixture of baking soda, vegetable-based liquid soap, water, and vinegar. Combine them in a spray bottle and shake. Spray liberally on the bathtub, let it sit for a while, and rinse.
Clogging is one of the issues with most bathroom sinks. A good choice for a natural drain cleaner is baking soda. All that needs to be done is to pour half a cup of baking soda in the drain and follow it up with one cup of vinegar. Allow it to sit for about 15 minutes. Rinse it with hot water and repeat the process if the drain is still clogged. To keep its sparkle, on the other hand, a combination of baking soda and ammonia will be effective.

Whether it is on the floor or walls, tiles can quickly become ugly and be prone to discoloration. With this, one of the best natural bathroom cleaners that you might want to try is a 50-50 mixture of vinegar and water, which will be effective in the removal of soap scums. Borax and hot water can also be a good cleaning solution when mopping the bathroom floor. If there is mold or mildew, borax and vinegar will make a good scrub paste.

Your ‘throne’ should also be clean without resorting to harsh chemicals. For a homemade toilet cleaner, white vinegar, borax, and lemon juice are some of the best. Essential oils, surprisingly, can also be used when cleaning the toilet. These plant-based oils, when used in a pure-form, will be excellent as antifungal and antibacterial. Among others, tea tree oil is one of the best to get rid of bacteria that could be possibly sitting in your toilet.
You have to rethink the way that you are cleaning your bathroom. Stay away from commercial chemical-laden cleaners as they can harm humans and the environment. Consider the alternatives that are mentioned in this post, which are not only economical but also eco-friendly.
