Decant the mixture into a squeeze bottle. I used an old coke bottle for this and poked a hole in the lid. It's a simple hack that works wonders!

5. Apply the DIY Bathroom Cleaner

This versatile cleaner can be used all around your bathroom – on toilets, sinks, showers, tubs, and tiles for sparkling results. Squeeze the mixture onto the desired areas and use a cloth to spread it evenly. Leave it on; the longer, the better.

6. Tackle Stubborn Stains

For stubborn stains, soak a paper towel in the mixture and place it on the stained area.

Scrub the toilet

Let it sit for a while, then give it a good scrub with a sponge, cloth, or, for toilets, use the toilet brush.

Wipe the sink

7. Rinse Thoroughly

Once you're done cleaning, rinse the area well with a wet cloth to remove any remaining dirt and detergent.

    Was wondering if the acid in the coke is bad for the enamel and the finish on fixture.
