Homemade Toilet Bowl Cleaner

Need a recipe for cleaning your toilet bowl using safe, non-toxic ingredients?

Baking Soda and Vinegar: Sprinkle some baking soda (about 1/4-1/2 c.) around the toilet bowl, then spray it with white vinegar in a spray bottle (uses less than just pouring it on). Scrub with toilet brush and flush to rinse.

A cheap and easy way to clean, deodorize and disinfect your toilet bowl!

Borax and Lemon Juice: In a container mix about 1/2 c. borax to 1/4 c. lemon juice (more or less as needed) to make a paste. Flush the toilet to get sides of bowl wet. Then, using a glove (or I like to use an old sock), rub the paste around the inside of the toilet bowl, especially glopping it over stains. Leave on for at least 2 hours (or overnight if possible), then scrub off with brush.

*I do this after a first cleaning with the baking soda/vinegar mix, so the bowl isn’t too grimy. I use this for slightly tougher stains, plus I like the lingering smell of the lemon juice!

But to remove those stains that you once deemed impossible to clean, you gotta try THIS ALL NATURAL METHOD. You won’t believe how white that porcelain bowl can be again!

Anyone use another recipe they’d like to share?
