If you’re not a fan of harsh chemicals to clean hard water stains from your toilet here’s a natural toilet cleaner alternative to get the job done without bringing toxic fumes into your home.
Natural Toilet Cleaner Recipe
I don’t know about you but I love cleaning the toilet! What I hate about it is that it usually takes so much time to make it look spotless. And that only happens after I try a couple of toilet cleaners that are packed with unhealthy chemicals and also I need to scrub the life out of me. When I leave the bathroom I am basically intoxicated and unable to function for a while.
As you may have noticed, I’m very much into green stuff, for my house and my family. Plus I really like making my own household products. Making this toilet cleaner alternative is a simple and effective way to clean your toilet without harsh chemicals. And the grapefruit salt combination makes a very effective cleaner, safe for the environment and incredibly fun to use. Plus the smell is unbelievable! I could just move in the bathroom after cleaning the toilet with this cleaner.
The water in our house is very hard and the toilet bowl is the most affected, it’s got some stains I cannot stand. I wanted to give the grapefruit salt a try as I’ve heard it works wonders and I can testify it’s all true. But next time I would replace it with a few lemons; they are easier to handle thanks to their size. Although nothing beats the smell of grapefruit, it gives the bathroom such a boost of freshness so hmm, maybe I’ll stick to this beautiful citrus fruit instead. It’s so hard!
If you love having a clean house using your own natural cleaners, this natural toilet cleaner is what you need. Safe, green, eco-friendly and made of just 2 simple ingredients.
