DIY bathroom cleaning products you can stop buying and start making at home. The bathroom is a place in your house that can get messy-quick. With dirty business conducted in your bathroom every day, usually by multiple people, it can be expensive to buy products that clean and refresh the bathroom. Save money, without investing much time, and make your own products right at home with some common household ingredients.
Here are my favorite recipes for easy and effective DIY bathroom cleaning products you can make at home!
Homemade Grout Cleaner
Make your own grout cleaner with two simple products- hydrogen peroxide and baking soda. Create a paste and apply to the grout lines. Let the mixture sit for a while before scrubbing with an old toothbrush. Then use a cloth and warm water to wipe down the tile, scrubbing any spots you missed. Once cleaned, all of the grim and scum will be gone and the grout will look wicked clean!

Streak Free Glass Cleaner
Never buy blue window cleaner again, instead, make this easy, streak free, grass cleaner right at home. Most commercial window cleaners produce a streak free shine by leaving a wax, or film, on the window when cleaned. When you make a homemade, natural, window cleaner there is no waxy build up, leaving your windows truly clean. Just combine 1 cup water, 1/2 cup vinegar and a few drops of essential oils to make your own glass cleaner. To get the best streak free shine, use recycled newspaper to wash your windows. I know it sounds weird, but it works!

Toilet Bowl Cleaning Bombs
Make these super simple toilet bowl cleaning tabs for a quick and easy way to clean the toilet bowl. When you clean your toilet every day, like I do, these make it really quick and easy. Keep a jar of them in the bathroom and drop one in the toilet everyday for a clean and fresh toilet bowl. In a bowl, mix together 1 cup of baking soda, 1/4 citric acid (canning ingredient) and a tablespoon of dish washing liquid, then transfer to an ice cube tray or mold and let dry 12-24 hours. Now you have toilet bowl bombs to use whenever you need a clean toilet!
