How To Clean Your Bathroom … Naturally

Bathrooms can get awfully grungy, and it’s easy to believe that harsh measures are required to keep them clean. That’s why so many of the cleansers you see at the store contain bleach and other strong chemicals. But although these can remove stains and disinfect your surfaces, they also come with some unpleasant side effects. Not only do they emit fumes that can cause problems for people with sensitivities, but they also can harm the environment. Any chemical agents that are rinsed down your drains can end up in local waterways, where they can be deadly to ecosystems. This is why anyone concerned about living a natural lifestyle should consider finding alternatives to chemical cleaning products.

Fortunately, you may already have the natural cleansers you need in your own kitchen. Using these in place of the ones you find on store shelves can get your bathroom just as clean without harming the environment or yourself. For example, all you need to clean your bathtub is a grapefruit and some coarse kosher salt. Cut the fruit in half and cover the top with the salt. Sprinkle more salt inside the tub and scrub with the grapefruit. The combination of acidic juice and salt will cut through stubborn stains and rust without making you feel woozy. Similarly, the powerful combination of distilled white vinegar and baking soda makes an effective solution for cleaning just about every tiled surface. You can even use baking soda with a few drops of your preferred essential oil to make an air freshener that doesn’t rely on fragrances created in a laboratory.

Just because your bathroom gets seriously scummy doesn’t mean you have to be harsh with it. For more tips you can use to clean it without the use of harsh chemicals, see the accompanying slideshow.
