Ready to remove toxic cleaners from your home?

This works so well! Homemade soft scrub recipe and non-toxic bathroom cleaning tips from

Guest Post by Stacy from :

Most of us know that the cleaners lining the grocery shelves are full of toxins, harmful to our health, and bad for the environment. Chemicals such as chlorine bleach and ammonia may clean well, but they can also damage the nervous and respiratory bathroom systems (as noted in by Raleigh Briggs, page 46).

We do our best to stay away from these chemicals, but when it comes to killing germs or tough cleaning jobs, it can be tempting to give in and reach for the bleach (or other toxic cleaner). One place this often happens is the bathroom.

Let’s face it; the bathroom is one area that we want to keep as fresh as possible!

How can we clean the bathroom effectively without using chemicals?

Arm yourself with the right tools:

Ingredients such as vinegar, castile soap, baking soda,, and water will allow you to make all manner of non-toxic cleaners.

Tools such as a scrubby sponge, a, and a help get the jobs done when a little extra elbow grease is needed.

Cleaning the toilet

For daily cleaning/sanitizing, fill a spray bottle with vinegar and add a few drops of. I like to use or ; both have anti-bacterial properties and smell great. Use approximately 5 drops of essential oil per cup of vinegar. Spray on toilet seats and wipe.

For an extra thorough toilet cleaning: pour in 1/2 cup of baking soda and 10 drops of. Get the toilet brush ready and add 1/4 cup of vinegar to the bowl. As it fizzes, scrub the toilet.

Because of the reactive nature of this combination, it is not possible to make a big batch to save for future use. But you can pre-measure the baking soda into a container and add the essential oil (10 drops per 1/2 cup) and have that stored in the bathroom. Then you only need to add the vinegar each time.

Cleaning the bath and shower

Prevention is key to keeping the bath and shower clean.

Here are two things you can do a couple of times a week, right after taking a shower:

Spray the shower walls with vinegar to prevent mildew.
Keep a spray bottle filled with scented vinegar right in the shower stall to make this an easy job.

Use to wipe down the walls.
You will be amazed at how much this cuts down on cleaning and scrubbing, especially if you have glass doors in the shower. We have that suctions to the wall. That way it’s easy to reach (and right in front of my face to remind me!).

While prevention may be key to keeping the bathroom clean, it is still necessary to give the tub a thorough scrubbing once in a while. When that time comes, make your own Soft Scrub!
