Natural Ways to Clean Bathroom We use a huge range of different chemicals to keep our bathrooms clean, some of which can be extremely toxic and bad for the environment. You probably have about five different cleaning sprays in your bathroom, all of which contain a concoction of nasty chemicals. Do you want to keep your bathroom looking fresh and clean, but would prefer a natural touch? If you are worried about your impact on the environment, then consider changing the products you use to clean your home. There are plenty of clever ways to clean your bathroom using purely natural methods. You can also buy natural cleaning sprays, but it’s a lot cheaper to make them yourself. Here are some tips and ideas for keeping your bathroom clean naturally:

Vinegar and water

This solution is ideal for cleaning mirrors. It works just as well if not better than buying a glass cleaning spray. To clean your bathroom mirrors mix water and vinegar together (50/50). This also works for cleaning the front of cabinets, counter tops and tiles. [caption id="attachment_619" align="alignnone" width="625"]Vinegar and Water Cleaner Source: Concrete Powder[/caption]

Baking soda and vinegar

Use a combination of baking soda and vinegar to clean the inside of your toilet. Leave it to sit for 10 to 15 minutes and then scrub the toilet bowl and flush. These ingredients will help to get rid of stains, sterilize your toilet and keep your toilet smelling fresh. Combine half a cup of baking soda with 1 cup of vinegar. You can also use this mixture to clean your drains, but you may need to leave it in the drain overnight.

Natural air freshener

A lot of shop bought air fresheners actually end up making your bathroom smell worse. They just aren’t as fresh as using natural ingredients. Lighting a match and blowing it out is a very simple way to get rid of foul smells, alternatively light some natural candles. You can also make your own natural air freshener with essential oils. Here are some natural ways to keep your bathroom smelling fresh. [caption id="attachment_623" align="alignnone" width="600"]DIY Orange Peel Candle Source: Viral Nova[/caption]

White wine vinegar and water

This is particularly useful for cleaning bathroom floors. Mix white wine vinegar (8 teaspoons) with three litres of hot water. White wine vinegar is a natural disinfectant and ideal for removing stains.


Use lemon to clean the surfaces in your bathroom. It’s ideal for when your bathroom needs a quick freshen up. You can also use lemon to help clean bathroom tiles and flooring and it smells lovely and fresh.

Additional tips

- Clean your bathroom regularly. The longer you leave it the more difficult it will be to clean. If you leave it too long, some of the natural cleaning methods won’t be effective enough. - If you do end up making a few of your own cleaning products at home, make sure you label the bottles with the ingredients so you know what’s inside. You should also test each cleaning solution on a small area to check that it doesn’t cause any damage.

What is Lorem Ipsum? Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum. Why do we use it? It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
