Have you ever read the contents on your commercial toilet bowl cleaners? These products are not something to have around children and are certainly not safe for the environment. These two simple ingredients can clean your toilet and are safe for children and the environment.
- Baking soda
- Castile soap
- Pour some baking soda into the toilet bowl and then add the soap.
There are probably more exact measurements but I’m lazy and would much rather pour things in. I will say, it’s better to pour more baking soda than soap, because otherwise you end up with a sudsy toilet. . .
Cleaning the toilet is gross, as we all know, but it has to be done. When I took a whiff of “normal” toilet bowl cleaner, my eyes watered. Probably from the ammonia and bleach. I don’t particularly want to use that stuff, so I poked around for another toilet bowl cleaner and found the one above.
You know how I saved $31 by making my own facial serum? And how I already had baking soda from my two-ingredient facewash? That means I only needed to buy castile soap (aka Dr. Bronner’s) and that runs for about $10 for a 16 oz. bottle, so I still have $21 I can reinvest in the money saving cycle.
This little toilet bowl cleaner may be more expensive than a store bought one (a 24 oz. bottle of store bough costs $3), but it’s so much easier and more environmentally friendly. If I got soap and baking soda on my skin that’s no big deal. Can you say the same thing about a “normal” toilet bowl cleaner?
