Nobody wants to clean the toilet but it’s something we all need to do, as much as we hate it. Keeping a clean and fresh toilet will keep you and your family healthy, but you need to know the right way to do it. Instead of using store-bought cleaners, which will do a decent job, but make your bathroom toxic, you can try our natural solution. It’s effective, non-toxic and will leave your bathroom smelling fresh for days. Don’t worry about the germs and bacteria; it will eliminate them as well.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 2 oz. of lemon juice
- 7/8 cup of baking soda
- 1/2 tbsp. of vinegar
- 1 tbsp. of 3% hydrogen peroxide
- 15-20 drops of essential oil
First mix the baking soda and lemon juice in a bowl until they fizz and foam. In another bowl, mix the hydrogen peroxide and vinegar. Then you can mix the two together and add the essential oils in the end. Make half-ball shapes from the mixture and leave them to dry on baking paper, 3- 4 hours will be enough, but if you like you can leave them overnight. In the morning they’ll be completely dry so you can store them in a glass jar and place them near the toilet bowl. When you feel that the toilet needs some freshening up just throw one in the toilet bowl and flush. It couldn’t be easier.
It may take some time to prepare it but you’ll see how effective it is once you try it. It sure is much better than the toxic alternative and it will make your toilet smell fresh and clean for days in a row.
