    Hi Gail as for me I use a mix of 50/50 vinegar and water to spray down my counters, sinks and the shower about once a week. I leave it on there for a few minutes then scrub it off, works really well as an all purpose daily maintenance cleaner. With our hard water though I have no choice but to use The Works toilet bowl cleaner for the commode. Here are so more natural hacks:

    For the toilet, the Dollar tree toilet bowl cleaner (blue cap on a bent neck container) works great and leaves a pleasant smell, use it on the seat too.

    For the fiberglass vanity and tub a mixture of 5-6 oz blue dawn dish soap in an empty 32 oz water bottle, poke holes in the lid and spray it on, let set about 5 min or longer and clean it off with fresh clear water. The floor 50/50 vinegar and water. Wood, Orange glow-it cleans the wood and gives a low luster.

  • Ugh, what a chore right?! I try to be as eco-friendly as I can and use greener cleaners or ones I can make. Vinegar and dish soap clean hard water spots off of glass shower doors really well.

    Hi Gail. I use scrubbing bubbles on the tub and tile. Spray it on and walk away. 15 or 20 minutes later clean it all up with a clean damp rag. Works great especially on shower doors. Then start at the top and work your way down. I begin with mirrors using windex. Then vanity and sinks with a 50/50 mix of vinegar and water. Next is toilet. Comet with bleach and a toilet brush. Don't flush right away. Give the comet and bleach a few minutes. Outside of toilet with Clorox wipes. Also be sure to use the wipes on the toilet handle, the sink handles, the tub handle, and the door knobs. Last comes the floor using the same 50/50 vinegar and water with a clean rag. Good luck. Happy Holidays.

    Hi! I like natural products for cleaning, but, for the bathroom I use products like Kaboom (it changes color) or Scrubbing Bubbles. Good luck and stay safe!

    The worst job there is! I use a bleach product and Mr. Clean Magic Eraser to remove soap scum from the bottom of the tub.

    Heat up 1 cup of white vinegar, mix in about 1/4 cup of Dawn Premium. Not the dollar store kind, because it is too thin. When mixed, pour into a spray bottle and fill with water. Shake. Spray down the grout and let it sit overnight. In the morning rinse. If you have stubborn stains, spray again. Use this mixture a few times a week. It will keep your grout and tiles clean. Also works wonders in the toilet bowl to keep hard water stains at bay. Oh you only have to heat the vinegar one time when you add the Dawn. Just do not use this on granite or real marble.
