Homemade Bathroom Cleaners, Simple, Toxic Free, Inexpensive....Let's Get Started Cleaning The Bathroom....Pure & Simple!
Homemade bathroom cleaners are a great alternative to all the commercial cleaners loaded with chemicals, even those that seem mild such as Clorox Wipes, Soft Scrub, Comet, etc. etc.......They're Not!
Before we dive into the cleaning recipes below, let's take a look at just one typical bathroom cleaner;
Clorox wipes....they smell clean and fresh, seem harmless and so easy to use but those handy dandy wipes are full of dangerous chemicals; (isopropyl alcohol, alkyl dimethyl, benzyl ammonium, chloride, alkyl polyglucoside, disodium EDTA, fragrance, preservative and propylene glycol propyl ether - all very dangerous!)
That's just one cleaner you may use, think about all the others on top of it all!!
