It’s so easy to make your own toilet cleaner that, when I received my latest delivery of household cleaning goodies from Summer Naturals, I couldn’t believe that I hadn’t shared this one before.
Also, perhaps I have bogs on the brain but I have recently come across some weird and wonderful homespun toilet cleaning tips, which have ranged from glugging cola down the bowl to popping a couple of Alka-Seltzer tablets in there. (I don’t think the first will do the bathroom enamel any good. As for the second: Alka-Seltzer works out to be a relatively expensive cleaning method!)
So here is my toilet cleaner of choice.
You will need:
Bicarbonate of soda
An empty bottle
If you don’t have an empty bog cleaner bottle, an empty spray bottle will do.
– A knife or something sharp, for popping the lid off the empty bottle.
– A funnel, for getting the ingredients in there without making a mess.
To make your own toilet cleaner, add the two ingredients to the bottle in the following quantities:
1 cup of vinegar
1/4 cup of bicarbonate of soda
Squirt, then let it sit for a while – just as you would with the gloopy toilet cleaner from the supermarket – and scrub. Done!
