If you’re sensitive to harsh chemicals, try using natural cleaners.

You don’t need a cabinet overflowing with harsh chemical cleaners to keep a tidy, clean, healthy house. Instead, have ample Borax, microfiber cloth, vinegar, white vinegar, baking soda, and harsh scrubbing brushes.


Borax, which is just sodium tetraborate, can clean everything. For your bathroom, it just needs to be sprinkled onto a sponge and dampened. Borax can be used as a surface cleaner in the kitchen, but it can also clean the garbage disposal in your kitchen drain. Drop a few tablespoons down the disposal, then rinse it with water (while the removal is on).

Microfiber Cloth

No liquid cleaner is necessary for windows and mirrors if you have microfiber cloth. It would be best if you got your mirrors and windows shining again. Microfiber cloth is sold cheaply at most major stores, so it’s an easy alternative to traditional glass cleaners like Windex. These sturdy little clothes can also be used on bathroom surfaces.


A 50/50 water and vinegar solution can be used to clean windows and mirrors, just put it in a spray bottle. Then, wipe it away with old rags or newspapers. Beware: paper towels and vinegar solution create streaky residue. The same vinegar and water solution can also be used to clean tile, counters, and cabinets and even get soap scum out of the shower.

White Vinegar

Toilet bowl stains don’t stand a chance when combining white vinegar and baking sodad. First, coat the toilet bowl with baking soda and let it sit for a few minutes, then add white vinegar to the water in the bowl. The chemical reaction of the two will have your toilet cleaned easy-peasy. Then, scrub!

Baking Soda

Combine baking soda with water or vinegar to make a paste capable of cleaning bathroom gunk and challenging stains. Also, it’s helpful to coat toilet bowls with baking soda before washing them. Mix baking soda and undiluted hydrogen peroxide when cleaning the grout, then scrub with a toothbrush.
