Chemical-Free Bathroom cleaning

THESE days it's all about 'clean' eating and organic everything from food to skincare.  People are a lot more conscious of what they're putting into and onto their bodies and this is extending from not just food but to the rest of the house too.
Chemical-free cleaning products are becoming more popular and although health shops have always stocked them, they're usually pricier and can be hard to find in regular stores.

So here at Sonas Bathrooms we've put together some tips for cleaning your bathrooms without harsh chemicals or industrial strength cleaning products. And of course if you've already got one of our rimless toilets, or an easily cleaned CLEAR SHIELD KRISTAL shower door, you'll be half way there as both of these make cleaning your bathroom way less of a chore.

Vinegar is your friend.

It's cheap as chips (and tastes delicious on them too!) but vinegar is one powerful ingredient when it comes to removing dirt from your home. Mixing equal amounts of white vinegar and water and putting the concoction into a spray bottle, will give you the perfect cleaner for a host of different things. It's especially good for cleaning windows and your mirrors. Spritz a little onto the mirror and wipe with a cloth or some old newspaper for a streak-free shine.

Baking soda cleaner

Dish soap such as Fairy Liquid is relatively mild and if you mix this with some baking soda to form a thick paste, you'll get a cracking cleaner for the bathroom that will help remove dirt, grease and soap scum from your bath and shower area.  Rub it in and give it a quick wipe with a cloth and it'll remove any dirt without you having to use much elbow grease.  Rinse with warm water for really sparkling surfaces.

You don't need bleach for a really clean toilet. If you do this once a week, you'll have a pristine loo - and it's even easier if you've got a modern, rimless WC. All you need to do is sprinkle some baking powder down there then dump in some white vinegar, let it sit for a bit and give it a scrub with your toilet brush. You'll have a gleaming loo in no time.

Chemical Free Air Fresheners

You don't have to use spray air fresheners to leave your bathroom smelling fresh. Simply put some baking soda into an old jam jar, add half a dozen drops of your favourite essential oil, cover the jar with a nice cloth lid and secure it in place. You can leave this on your bathroom shelf or on the back of the cistern for a nice, homemade deodoriser that absorbs any nasty smells.

Home-Made Chemical Free Paste

If you've got really hard to shift grime, you can make a paste with vinegar, baking soda, coarse salt, water and some lemon juice. Use a sponge or cloth to rub it in and just rinse. You'll be pleasantly surprised how well it works.
It's also great for cleaning the grout between tiles and if you use a toothbrush you'll get even better results. So there you have it - a gloriously gleaming bathroom without harsh chemicals and without spending a fortune on products.
