Toilet Bowl Cleaner

¼ Cup Baking Soda
1 Cup Vinegar

Mix baking soda and Vinegar (they will fizz), pour into basin and let set for a few minutes.
Scrub with brush and rinse.

Bathroom Mold & Mildew
Mix one part hydrogen peroxide (3%) with 2 parts water in spray bottle.
Spray on areas with mold.
Wait at least 1 hour before rinsing or using shower.

Or use white vinegar or lemon juice full strength. Apply with
sponge or scrubby.

Basin, Tub, & Tile Cleaner

For basic cleaning, rub baking soda into grimy bathtub rings, sinks, or vanities with a damp sponge & rinse with water.
For tougher jobs, wipe surfaces with vinegar first and follow with baking soda. (Vinegar can break down tile grout so use sparingly).
For difficult areas make a paste of baking soda and water, apply to tub or sink, allow to stand 10-20 minutes. Dirt, scum, & deposits soften & are easier to remove.

Shower Heads

Use diluted vinegar to clean shower heads that have been clogged with mineral deposits.
Place ¼ Cup - ½ Cup vinegar in a plastic food storage bag & secure the bag to the shower head with a rubber band.
Let stand for 2 hours to overnight and buff to a shiny finish.
