Make your own Toilet Cleaners (7 methods)

Can you look in your laundry and bathroom cupboards and find umpteen tins and bottles of pungent, toxic cleaners?

One whiff of any of them will probably leave you short of breath.  These cleaners are wiped around toilet seats, baths and  kitchen surfaces, not to mention the fact that our clothes are drenched in them each time we do the washing. 

 A lot of cleaning products are absorbed by our skin.  Many are carcinogenic and many can affect our central nervous system. 

 So far we have only mentioned the affect on our bodies but what about the affect on our environment.  That's another story we don't need to go into here as you are well aware of how fragile it is. 

Lets get down to something constructive and make some healthy cleaners.  Most of ingredients are in your pantry right now, so let's get started:


Learn how to clean a toilet without buying chemicals

Make your own toilet cleaners:

Cleaning toilets method 1:
Sprinkle baking soda around the bowl.  Drip a few drops of liquid soap onto the toilet brush and scrub out the bowl. To clean the outside of the bowl sprinkle some baking soda onto a damp rag.  Wipe over, rinse cloth and wipe off any residue.

Cleaning toilets method 2:
Sprinkle a cup of borax around the toilet bowl and leave over night. In the morning scrub the bowl and flush.  For extra cleaning power sprinkle the bowl with a 1/4 cup of white vinegar before sprinkling on the borax.

Cleaning toilets method 3:
Pour 1 litre of coke around the toilet bowl, scrub the toilet well and leave over night.  In the morning scrub the bowl again and flush.

Cleaning toilets method 4:
This hint is for stains in the toilet. Combine the juice of a lemon mixed with enough borax to give a thick paste. Smear onto the stain.  Leave on for about 15 minutes and then brush off.  Borax is a very strong powder so wear gloves and be careful.

Cleaning toilets method 5:
Pour 1 cup white vinegar around the inside of the toilet bowl. Scrub well and leave for an hour.  Scrub again and then flush.

Cleaning toilets method 6:
Drop 3 Vitamin C tablets into the toilet bowl.  Let them dissolve for an hour.  Scrub this mixture around the bowl and flush.

Cleaning toilets method 7:
Drop 2 Alka Seltzer tablets into the toilet bowl.  Let them dissolve for 20 minutes.  Scrub this mixture around the bowl and flush.
