The bathroom – most peoples least favorite room to clean but the one that needs it the most. Typically, bathroom cleaners are filled with toxic chemicals that irritate the respiratory system and the skin. We’re here to help you deep clean your bathroom without needing a hazmat suit! Grab your Lemon and Tea Tree Essential Oils, Cleanz Everything, Vinegar and Baking Soda because we’re here to get the job done the ToxicFree® way!
Shower/Tub and Sink: Rinse with warm water to get any hair and gunk off the surfaces. Spray pure vinegar or SuperPowerz on any scum or mildew. Let sit 30 minutes and then rinse off. Soft Scrub - Use 1/3 cup baking soda and enough warm water to create a thick paste. Add 2-3 drops of lemon essential oil, mix and then apply to the shower/tub and sink and scrub with a non-abrasive sponge. Scrub and then rinse. Stinky drains? Add 1-2 drops of Bergamot and 4 drops Lemon essential oil to 1 cup hot water and carefully pour down the drain. Bergamot helps to neutralize odors while the Lemon essential oil cleans. Daily Cleaning - use equal parts vinegar and water with a few drops of Tea Tree and Lemon essential oils in a glass spray bottle. Spray, let sit for a few minutes and then wipe away.
Cabinets: Mix equal parts vinegar and water to create a simple cleaner that is gentle on any surface. For wood front cabinets add in a few drops of olive oil to help condition the wood as well.
Counters: Cleanz Everything is an amazing all-purpose cleaner! Simply dilute 1 tsp in 16 oz water to clean almost any surface! Spray on, scrub away any mess, and wipe away with a damp sponge.
Floors: Mix equal parts vinegar and water for an exceptionally easy floor cleaner. Add a few drops of Tea Tree and Lemon to boost the cleaning power. Want an easier pre-made solution? Use the Cleanz Everything dilution we created earlier for the counters on the floor. Have a particularly tough spot? Use SuperPowerz! It is tough enough to use on outdoor messes yet gentle enough to use indoors!
Baseboards/Woodwork: Dust with a slightly damp cloth to minimize dust in the air and work from the top of the room to the bottom. DIY Wood Polish: In a glass spray bottle add a few drops of Lemon Essential Oil to 1 ½ cups olive oil. Spray onto a clean cloth and rub into the wood. Buff with a soft cloth to shine.
Toilet: Bowl Cleaner – Sprinkle ½ cup of baking soda in the bowl and 10 drops of Tea Tree essential oil. Get your toilet brush and scrub away! Flush to rinse. Daily Cleaner – Fill a glass spray bottle with vinegar and add Lemon or Tea Tree essential oil. 5 drops per cup of vinegar. Spray the outside of the toilet and wipe!
Mirrors/Windows: In a 16oz spray bottle mix 1/8 cup vinegar and water. Spray down the mirror and use newspaper to wipe clean! This same mixture can be used on windows as well!
Fake Bleach: In a dark glass spray bottle combine 1 cup Hydrogen Peroxide, 1 cup water and 20 drops Lemon Essential Oil. Works wonders on tile and grout, the toilet and tub! Spray and wipe! (Will actually bleach fabric so be sure to protect any clothing/towels and use rags you don’t care about!)
Air Freshener: You’ll need a small glass mason jar, cardstock, a sharp tack, baking soda, your favorite essential oils, and paint if you desire. Trace the inner portion of the lid onto your cardstock and cut out the circle. Paint the cardstock and outer ring if desired and let dry before inserting the circle into the ring. Using the thumbtack or pin make holes in the cardstock. It can be random or a pattern! Fill the jar ½ way with baking soda and mix in 5-10 drops of essential oil. Put the lid on and you’re done! Place in the bathroom or any room that needs a little freshening! Our favorite odor busters? Bergamot and Cypress!
