Simple works best for keeping toilets clean. Using household items like hydrogen peroxide and essential oils will help flush away (had to!) bacteria and odours. The baking soda will work on the stains. To amp up your scrubbing, especially if you have toilet rings or stubborn stains, get a pumice stone which is a beast when it comes to these stains, and won’t cause damage. Whip this up and it should get you through 3 toilet cleanings!
- 1/4 cup of castile soap (or dish soap)
- 1/4 cup of hydrogen peroxide
- 15 drops tea tree oil (or a blend of oils which is known for disinfecting)
- 1/2 cup of baking soda
- 1/2 cup of water
- Pumice stone (optional)
Mix everything together in a reusable squirt bottle (think: old condiment, beauty product or dish soap bottle). Squirt the solution around the toilet bowl and after a few moments scrub heavily stained areas with the pumice stone (only use this stone for the toilet), and then scrub with your brush as usual. Flush..and you’re done!
