Cleaning Bathrooms without Chemicals

Keeping bathrooms clean is important and should be done often, but you may be uncomfortable with constantly spraying potentially harmful chemicals in such a frequently used room. A 50/50 vinegar and water mix is perfectly safe and effective in cleaning many different surfaces.

To clean mirrors with this solution, you can fashion a rag from old t-shirts or newspapers, but the ideal method is to wipe with microfiber cloths – one wet and one dry. You’ll be surprised at the results you’ll get without the use of any chemicals.

The vinegar and water mix is also effective for cleaning counters, tiles, and even soap scum in showers and tubs. For very tough stains and grime stuck to showers, try a baking soda and water paste, or baking soda and vinegar for an even stronger solution. Scrub tile grout with hydrogen peroxide and a soft toothbrush to loosen set-in dirt and grime.

To keep toilets relatively clean in between visits from house cleaning companies in 

Princeton, coat the inside of the bowl with baking soda and pour a cup of white vinegar into the water. Scrub with a toilet brush, and the chemical reaction should remove most stains and odors.

You can even find recipes online for chemical-free air fresheners as an alternative to Febreeze or Lysol. Minch Professional Cleaning Services, LLC has even more tips on our website for effective natural house cleaning in Princeton.
