Washing the Bathroom

I admit. I was a skeptic when I read that vinegar and soda could really clean my bathroom. But after the learning curve, I’m convinced my bathroom is cleaner now than it was with those toxic chemicals.

What you will need:

  • 1 bucket
  • 1-2 clean dry rags, old washcloths work well
  • 1 spray bottle (don’t reuse a spray bottle that has had chemicals in it; some can react to non-toxic ingredients like vinegar to make deadly gases)
  • vinegar
  • water
  • baking soda
  • 1-2 paper towels
  • vacuum or broom
  • 3% hydrogen peroxide (optional)
  • essential oils fragrance spray (optional)

In the spray bottle, prepare a solution of 1 part vinegar to 3 parts water. Vinegar is an excellent cleanser of grime, and a mild disinfectant as well. If the odor annoys you (or brings back childhood memories of Easter-Egg dying), rest assured the smell will dissipate when the vinegar dries.
