Cleaning the Bathroom

What products do you use for cleaning your bathroom? It is always interesting to me to read about what others are using! Any great tips? Post away!

Vinegar and water. Baking soda. I started using all-natural, non-toxic cleaners last year and I've never looked back. They work great and don't kill my eyes (or lungs). I totally recommend the book, Green Clean by Linda Mason Hunter and Mikki Halpin - completely changed my views on cleaning.

I have to agree with Cris in all other areas of the house. But in the bathroom, a little bleach comes out. And SoftScrub. The rest of the house gets Mrs. Meyers and Ecover products! Love your blog. I am a fairly faithful reader. :-)

I've been a faithful lurker for awhile - love your blog!! Also love: Mrs. Meyers geranium-scented products. Yum!

I'm a fan of green cleaning and have been using vinegar and baking soda for most of my cleaning. However, I have also been using Meyers (love the geranium-scents too!) and Method. They are great eco-friendly options.

I love Caldrea! Right now I'm using Basil Blue Sage.

method tub and tile- for everything but the mirror and shiny fixtures.
I like that I can use it on granite, marble floors, and the tub/ toilet.

Hiya Aunt B!

I've been using those microfiber cloths that Jan on GI recommended. They are awesome! Also use the Mrs. Meyers Geranium Scented products and a little ammonia in the toilet every now and then. I really need to dive deeper into the world of baking soda and vinegar...it's on my list.

Great blog ma friend. :)

Does anyone know of an eco-friendly UNSCENTED (I mean REALLY unscented) product? I'm tired of smelling vinegar everytime I was into my bathroom. And most unscented products do smell of something - the container they come in? - whether they have a pretty scent added or not. I just want my house to be clean not perfumesd!

I have really fallen in love with the Method brand of bathroom cleaner in an aqua blue bottle that smells like fresh mint. It's available at Target. It's supposed to be a safe cleaner (no harsh chemicals) and it gets those hard to clean mineral deposits of my fixtures, too.

I'll have to go ask my hubby...

Happy day!

My multi-purposed all around cleaning solution that I love is as follows: Dr. Bronner's Pure Castile Eucalyptus Soap, Lavender Essential Oil, and Water mix. It cleans surfaces, windows, you name it... as well as it makes your home smell like a lavender field!

Love the blog, by the way!!

Back in the days when I was renting. One landlord had given me a cleaning check list on it there was a trick for a sparkling bath tub...EASY-OFF. That is right the oven cleaner. You spray Easy-off on the entire tub paying attention and not spraying your faucets or spickets...wait a couple of min.(approx. 15 min.) and then wipe. It truly is that easy. sure it is not ECO-FRIENDLY but if you only do it twice a year I think Mother Earth will forgive.

SCRUBBING BUBBLES WITH BLEACH, MR. CLEAN (SMELLS SO GOOD), TARGET BRAND GLASS CLEANER (BECAUSE THEY HAVE LOTS OF DIFFERENT SMELLS).

I've been making blog visits this evening and came for a visit. I use Pledge multi-purpose cleaner for my granite and it can also be used on wood.

Lisa said...

Hi, there seems to be a trend, because I use Method too. I just love the Ylang Ylang scent, and the bathrooms smells clean. I use it for the tub, the toilet seat and tank, the counter ... then i use bleach for the sink. I haven't used vinegar and baking soda to clean the bathroom, but i've used it to clean the sink pipes. Plus boiling water.

God bless.

JeannieTheDreamer said...

question for you- is this your bathroom?

Elizabeth said...

I've been using Shaklee products for awhile, and in our bathroom I use their 'Basic H' product for any areas that have soap scum (tub, sink). I also use a steam cleaner (made by Whitewing) on EVERYTHING. It sanitizes the entire bathroom without any cleaning products. It's the best appliance we have in our house!

Lisa said...

Sorry I did not ck this post sooner! Nope not my bathroom, its too clean!!! Hee!

Kitchen Cabinet Refacing said...

Kitchen cabinets are something you use every day, yet you probably never take the time to appreciate them. They seem simple enough, but there is actually more than plenty involved behind the scenes. There are many things to consider regarding kitchen cabinet refacing, cabinets materials, finishes, door designs, and even information on hardware. http://kitchen-cabinet-refacing-design.blogspot.com

i'm joining the lovers of vinegar and baking soda....i use it for everything! my general purpose clear is about 4 parts water and one part vinegar with a few drops of liquid soap in a spray bottle. i use it for everything and it works great. nothing gets rid of soap scum like that! for the tub i use baking soda sprinkled everywhere and just a little dish soap to make a paste and just scrub away-very few things can get things that clean. i've tried just about every kind of cleaner on the market and NOTHING works as good as plain old baking soda and vinegar!

greenzebrastudio said...

Wow! There are so many handy tips here. I love Faith's idea of using a fave essential oil to add scent to a room. Your lavender bathroom must be sooo relaxing!

Will try applying different scents to different parts of the house. Lavender for the bedroom (relaxing), citrus for the bathroom (invigorating), eucalyptus for work area (stimulating)... :-)

Love your blog! I live in a small 1930's cottage house & can relate! On cleaing, I've been wanting to try another Meyers scent -thinking about the new basil but may have to try the geranium!. Please vist if you can.
