These homemade bathroom cleaning recipes will save you so much money–and they will guarantee a natural, non-toxic way to clean!
The most frugal way to healthfully clean your bathroom is to make your own cleaning products.
Basic ingredients I keep on hand for cleaning include:
You can start by getting a FREE bottle of organic orange essential oil + a FREE cleaning caddy, glass spray bottle, and walnut scrubber brush! See details here or via the image below!
The following cleaning recipes will allow you to clean your bathroom from counters to toilets to tub and floor—and they require nothing more than the above four ingredients!
Who knew cleaning your bathroom could be so simple?!
Homemade Toilet Bowl Cleaner
For this cleaning recipe, you need two simple ingredients:
Step 1: Sprinkle baking soda in the toilet bowl.
Step 2: Pour white vinegar into the toilet; swish and scrub with the toilet brush until the toilet is sparkling clean!
Homemade Soft Scrub
Use this easy homemade soft scrub to clean your counters, the outside of your toilet, and the bathtub. All you need is:
• 3/4 cup baking soda
• 3 tablespoons castile soap
Step 1: Combine the baking soda and castile soap.
Step 2: Slowly add water until the consistency is a a smooth paste.
Scoop out the soft scrub onto a clean sponge and start cleaning!
Tip: If you have stains on your bathtub, you can let the soft scrub soak for several hours before wiping it off.
Alternately, you can sprinkle a generous amount of pure baking soda by itself into the tub and let it sit. You will be amazed at how well as an affordable of an ingredient like baking soda can remove tough stains!
Homemade Tile or Linoleum Floor Cleaner
We have three bathrooms in our home, and two have tile flooring while the third has linoleum. Thankfully, this easy homemade floor cleaner will take care of both—with two ingredients, no less!
Combine equal parts vinegar and water and get to mopping! For tough stains, try sprinkling a generous amount of baking soda onto the stain or using the homemade soft scrub recipe to loosen set-in grime.
Alternately, you can just use water if you have a steam mop! We purchased a steam mop a few years back, and it’s been one investment I haven’t regretted.
Homemade Mirror and Window Cleaner
If you have young children at home, keeping your mirrors clean can be quite the challenge. I feel your pain, Mama! Those little hand prints are the cutest things ever, but, if nothing else, you’ll want a clean, finger-print-free mirror before guests arrive.
Thankfully, you can clean both your mirrors and your windows with just two ingredients:
To make the mirror and window cleaner, simply mix the vinegar and water in a glass spray bottle.
Spray your mirrors or windows, and wipe clean.
If you want to cut the vinegar smell or simply want to add the power of antibacterial essential oils, free feel to mix in a few drops of your favorite scents. Mine include the clean smell of tea tree and lavender.
Homemade Foaming Hand Soap
This foaming hand soap is my family’s favorite, and it’s a cinch to make! You will never buy foaming hand soap again after learning how easy and affordable you can do it yourself.
All you need is:
• 1/4 part liquid castile soap
• 3/4 part distilled water
Simply combine the soap and water in an empty foaming hand soap dispenser. Voila!
Homemade Air Freshener
Although all of my children have been potty trained for several years at this writing, one stills wear pull-ups at night. If I don’t change the bathroom trash bags daily, an ammonia smell from the soiled pull-ups will soon stink up the entire room.
When I change the trash bags, I have a habit of spraying out the waste basket with this homemade air freshener.
The essential oils in it sanitize while also leaving a pleasant aroma throughout the room.
All you need is:
• essential oils of choice
• a glass spray bottle
Simply fill a glass spray bottle with water and add several drops of your favorite essential oils or essential oil blends.
My favorite is an anti-germ or immune blend.
Are you starting to see a pattern here? After you start using these homemade cleaning recipes, you’re going to ask yourself why in the world you spent so much money on store-bought cleaners before you tried to DIY it!
