8 Ways to Clean a Bathroom Using Baking SodaThe restroom is a place where all of your cleaning is likely to be focused on managing bacteria.

If the primary cleaning tools you use contain loads of chemical-based cleaners, then you may want to reconsider using such products.

Cleaning and disinfecting an area requires you to eliminate the bacteria living on it. The issue is that most of the solutions that remove dangerous germs tend to be dangerous. Of course you would like to make sure your restrooms are totally free of bacteria since many of them may cause health problems.

To deal with bacteria without chemicals, you will have to look into organic solutions. It is very likely that you already own such a solution without even realizing it. Baking soda is an ingredient that can be used to wipe down every surface in your bathroom. It cleans just as well as chemical-based products and is one hundred percent risk free.
Below are the top eight areas where t can be used in the restroom:

Shower Curtains
Thoroughly clean your shower curtains by scattering baking soda over a sponge and scrubbing hard. Rinse off well. If there is a mold stain on the shower curtain, it can be handled with by quickly rubbing in a water and baking soda paste. If your shower curtain is in really bad condition, take it off and throw it in the washer on the cold cycle, putting only baking soda and vinegar as the detergent.

Countertops
Scrub marble areas with a composite made from white vinegar and baking soda. Wipe thoroughly clean and then polish.

Floors
Wash a bathroom floor with of half a cup of baking soda to a container of warm water. Mop the tiles using this remedy and rinse off. Incorporating lemon or lime juice into the rinsing water can give it a nice refreshing smell.

Grout
Work with a baking soda and water paste to get rid of mildew spots on the grout all around your bathtub or shower. Put on the paste and wash it away with a brush until the spot is completely gone. Make sure to rinse the area thoroughly.

Toilets
Once per week, you need to pour about a half cup white vinegar right into the toilets of your home and allow it to sit for thirty minutes. After that, put some baking soda on the toilet bowl brush and clean off any leftover tarnished areas. When done, flush.

Trash Cans
Scatter baking soda into your bathroom’s trash can right after you empty it. This will assist with eliminating potential odor.

Drains
Just like your kitchen drain, you need to take care of your bathroom and shower drains as well. Once weekly, raise the drain cover in the bathtub or shower and use a cotton swab to get rid of the hair which has built up there. Then dump a half cup of baking soda accompanied by one cup of vinegar down the drain. Allow this solution to sit for twenty minutes and then rinse the drain with scorching hot water.

Showers and Tubs
If the bathtub or shower is made of fiberglass, wash it simply by spreading a blend of dishwashing liquid and baking soda on it and scrubbing with a sponge. Additionally, the exact same mix will help get rid of hard water and rust spots on porcelain tiles. Spraying the edges of your shower and tub with white vinegar can release accumulated soap residue.

In addition to baking soda and the natural ingredients mentioned above, an all-natural purpose cleaner with beneficial microorganisms will also help in the cleaning your bathroom.

Organic Office Cleaners

Organic Office Cleaners

Keeping your office clean is just as important as keeping your home clean. You spend a good deal of time at the office, sometimes even more so than at home, so making sure that everything is clean and tidy is one of the things that should be on your mind as you look around it right now.

When was the last time you cleaned your computer parts? When was the last time you cleaned your desk or windows? When was the last time you sanitized the door handles and light switches or even your office chairs? If you cannot recall the last time perhaps, it’s time to get up and start cleaning.

Organic Office Cleaners

If you use organic methods in your home there is no reason why those same methods won’t work in your office.

Having organic office cleaners means that you are cleaning green and you are being mindful to the people who come in and out of the office that you work in day to day.

Keeping a healthy home office or even a public office naturally clean is a good way to start out the work week or end it. This way everything will be fresh and clean when you start working again on Monday.

You can buy your own natural or organic cleaners from grocery stores and warehouse stores. They are going to cost more than the normal cleaners. But, there is another way.

You can make your own organic office cleaners for just pennies on the dollar. This will help you feel better about what you are cleaning with, and make the people you work with feel better as well because most of the things you can make at home will leave no overpowering scent or odor which can bother some people who are sensitive to these things.

You will get the same kind of powerful cleaning but with all-natural flair. Using the best cleaners really means making them up yourself, so that you know what goes into them.

You can mix up vinegar and water to make a very effective window cleaning solution and this will also work to get off rust stains, which can be left behind from planters leaning against a wall or something on your desk.

You can use all natural vegetable oil to get scuff marks off leather furniture as well which is something that everyone can agree happens to office furniture.

You can mix together a bucket of water, lemon juice and a bit of salt and use it to wash down your desk so that you can get it back to its sparkling design.

You can run your office coffee maker through with a pot of vinegar (white vinegar) and then run it through again or twice with clean water and that will get the build-up and even shine up the glass pot so that it doesn’t have a film on it.

Your office should be as naturally clean as your home and with a bit of know-how you will be able to use ingredients that you already have at home or in the office even, or you buy them inexpensively at your local grocery store.

Using organic office cleaners means that you are doing your part for the environment, your loved ones, co-workers, and friends.
