OK, let’s face it – nobody likes to clean a toilet. If ever the quote, “It’s a dirty job, but somebody’s got to do it” applied to a household chore, this is it. But if you have to do it, why not save a little money and help the environment at the same time? You don’t have to use expensive chemicals to get your toilet sparkling clean – you probably already have the home remedy for this task in your kitchen.
Create an Organic Cleaning Product
All you’ll need is one cup of baking soda and two cups of white vinegar and you’ll be ready to tackle the dirtiest toilet. Mix the ingredients together, pour them in the bowl and then let everything sit for about a half an hour. Then go ahead and scrub as normal. When you do this once a week and your home DIY concoction will keep that bowl from becoming a… let’s just say “a source of unpleasantness.” The reason this home remedy is so effective is that when the baking soda and vinegar mix, it creates a chemical reaction that results in fizzing and bubbling.
