Here are the recipes I use to make my own natural bathroom cleaners at home! They're so easy and will save you a LOT of money. They use simple and affordable ingredients like vinegar, baking soda, Castile Soap, essential oils, and water. Let's get started!
Why Make Your Own Natural Bathroom Cleaners?
We've been duped into believing we need “special” and expensive chemicals to ensure our bathrooms are cleaned well. In my experience, that's simply not true! It's a big marketing gimmick. We can indeed clean our bathrooms naturally and still kill germs with natural cleaners that cost next to nothing to make.

This cleaner uses baking soda, vinegar and Castile Soap, that's it! Or you can just use Thieves Household Cleaner and water. I like to add a little extra Castile Soap to add some suds if I use the Thieves Household Cleaner. Another option is to use my recipe for reusable natural cleaning wipes – these are great for using to quickly wipe down the countertops and floor.
This is SO simple, cheap and easy, you'll wonder why you never made it before! It's great for scrubbing out toilet bowls, bathtubs and showers.
3 – Glass Cleaner
This blog post actually contains three recipes! So you can choose the one that will work best for your location and/or budget.
I use this recipe in my Bissell CrossWave floor cleaner – it vacuums and mops the floors AT THE SAME TIME. WUT?! I know, right? Makes my life so much easier!
If I've got a raunchy toilet that really needs cleaning (like in the boys' bathroom… ?…GROSS), then I use this spray. It's just two ingredients and it won't harm the environment or you and your kids. Another option is to use my recipe for REUSABLE disinfecting wipes – keep these next to the toilet for easy use!
My Fav Bathroom Cleaning Gadgets
? Glass Polishing Cloth – when I don't feel like making my glass cleaner (or can't get to it easily), I use this glass polishing cloth! All you have to do is wet it and start wiping. Super easy!
? 16 oz. glass bottles – these are essential for natural cleaning recipes!
? Shower spinning scrubber – I had to sell this to move to Germany, and now I miss it so much, I've bought one to use here in Germany! It makes bathroom cleaning so much easier. I hate scrubbing tiles!
? Bissell CrossWave to vacuum AND mop hardwoods and tile. I put my Hardwood and Tile Floor cleaner recipe (above) in it as a cleaner.
