If you want to save some money and make your own homemade bathroom cleaner, now you can! Here are a few tub and tile cleaner recipes that will get your bathroom sparkly clean in no time.
The first cleaner recipe is a 50/50 water and vinegar solution. You can put the mixture in a spray bottle for easy use. Then use it to wipe the tile. Or you can use it to clean the mirror, the counters, cabinets, and also to remove soap scum from your shower glass.
You can also scrub the tub and tile with a paste made out of water and baking soda.
For grout you can sprinkle baking soda and add hydrogen peroxide and gently brush.
Better yet, here’s why these natural homemade cleaners contain ingredients such as baking soda or borax:
Borax – deodorizes and cleans, and also disinfects
Baking soda – cleans and removes odors, great for scrubbing due to its texture and anti-grease properties
Castile soap – cleans
Distilled white vinegar – freshens, dissolves mineral deposits, kills bacteria, mold, viruses, cuts grease and soap scum
Essential oils – disinfects and freshens
Sea salt – great for scrubbing, scours
Here are a few homemade cleaning solutions which will make your bathroom shine:
Tub and tile cleaner: 2 cups of baking soda, half of a cup of liquid vegetable oil soap, 2 tablespoons of vinegar and half of a cup of water.
Scouring powder: 1 cup of borax, 1 cup of baking soda, and 1 cup of kosher salt in a jar. Whenever you need to clean something, sprinkle some on, scrub with a damp sponge and rinse.
Toilet bowl cleaner: a quarter of a cup of baking soda or borax and one cup of vinegar. Let it act for 15 minutes.
Floor sanitizer: 2 gallons of hot water and half of a cup of borax.
