Sick of all the toxic fumes from your chemical cleaning products? Why not switch them all out for something more natural and healthy? More and more people are making the switch to chemical free cleaners to keep their households healthy and toxin free and to be more environmentally friendly. We have to remember that anything that goes down our drains or that is flushed down our toilets is bound to end up in our waterways in one way or another. The sulphates in these cleaners is harmful to wildlife and plant life as well, so it could potentially ruin ecosystems. The natural toilet cleaning products on the market don't contain all of those nasty sulphates or the synthetic dyes, bleach, or ammonia that commercial cleaners contain. So you're really helping out the planet and yourself by making the switch to natural cleaners. Once you switch your toilet cleaning products, you'll just be inclined to switch out all of your cleaning products for natural cleaners. You can also make a lot of different natural cleaners yourself so you can save money. Many diy natural cleaners just simply use vinegar and water, or baking soda and water. Some add in citric acid or hydrogen peroxide and essential oils to make them smell good.

Whichever toilet cleaner you choose, you'll want to be sure you clean your toilet regularly for optimum cleanliness. Cleaning your toilet at least once a week is the best way to ensure you get all of those hard water stains and other stains out for good. You can also make your own toilet cleaning bombs by mixing up some citric acid and baking soda, and add in some pure essential oils too. Then you press your mixture into silicone moulds and leave them to dry for 6 hours or more until they're hard. When they're dry, just pop them out of the moulds and drop them into your toilet. Let them fizz up for 15- 20 minutes and then scrub as usual. You don't want to leave nasty germs on your toilet brush either, so make sure you always rinse your toilet brush off and maybe even pour some toilet bowl cleaner or vinegar in the cup the brush sits in to keep it clean. Try out some of these natural cleaners and see which ones you like using on your toilet the best.***
