TOILET BOWL CLEANER
IF YOU DO USE BLEACH TO CLEAN YOUR TOILET BOWL, NEVER MIX BLEACH WITH VINEGAR, TOILET BOWL CLEANER, OR AMMONIA. The combination of bleach with any of these substances produces a toxic gas, which can be hazardous.
Baking Soda and Vinegar
Sprinkle baking soda into the bowl, then drizzle with vinegar and scour with a toilet brush. This combination both cleans and deodorizes
Borax and Lemon Juice
For removing a stubborn stain, like toilet bowl ring, mix enough borax and lemon juice into a paste which can cover the entire ring. Flush toilet to wet the sides, and then rub on paste. Let sit for 2 hours and scrub thoroughly. For less stubborn toilet bowl rings, sprinkle baking soda around the rim and scrub with a toilet brush.
TUB AND TILE CLEANER
Sprinkle baking soda like you would scouring powder. Rub with a damp sponge. Rinse thoroughly.
Vinegar and Baking Soda
To remove film buildup on bathtubs, apply vinegar full-strength to a sponge and wipe with vinegar first. Next, use baking soda as you would scouring powder. Rub with a damp sponge and rinse thoroughly with clean water.
Vinegar removes most dirt without scrubbing and doesn’t leave a film. Use 1/4-cup (or more) vinegar to 3.5 litres water.
To clean grout, put 3 cups baking soda into a medium-sized bowl and add 1-cup warm water. Mix into a smooth paste and scrub into grout with a sponge or toothbrush. Rinse thoroughly and dispose of leftover paste when finished.
