What are some natural cleaning agents I can use to clean the tub and toilet?
I find that using harsh chemicals burns my eyes and has a terrible smell. What are some natural cleaning agents that would help to clean my tub and toilet without having the harsh chemical effect, yet having the same cleaning power as those chemicals? Also, are they expensive?
Vinegar is a common cleaning solution (they used it for a lot of cleaning before cleaning products were invented). It can be cut with water and/or dish soap, then sprayed onto hard surfaces. I don't remember the exact mixture, but it works fairly well.
Yes vinegar is a good one. Some other options are Hydrogen peroxide - marketed in many household cleaning products as "oxygen bleach" is a really versatile cleaner. Its used at 3% dilution. It's also safe for the environment because it just breaks down into oxygen and water. Its kills mold and bacteria and also removes limescale. If you have hard water stains, citric acid is another good one.
