If there’s one thing I don’t like is cleaning a bathroom and the part I hate the most is cleaning the toilet. Let’s face it…I think everyone hates cleaning toilets but it’s something that has to be done.
For a long time I used the regular toilet cleaners you can buy at any store but a lot of these are made with toxic chemicals, like bleach. I don’t want my kids anywhere near ingredients like that and much less somewhere where they’re going to be sitting for a while.
I started using this DIY all-purpose cleaner to clean our bathroom but there were times when the toilet just needed a good scrubbing. Today I’m going to share 2 ways how to scrub clean your toilet.
The easiest way and the one I use when I’m doing just a quick clean is to sprinkle baking soda inside the toilet, wait a few minutes and then I spray the all-purpose cleaner and scrub it off. I like using this brush for that.
The other way I do this is by preparing a toilet scrubber. I clean our toilets weekly but I use this toilet cleaner every 2 weeks or so, or sooner if the toilet got dirtier than usual. This scrub is easy to make and works awesome.
You can also use this to clean your sink or tub when it gets too dirty.

DIY Natural Toilet Cleaner
- Mason jar or reusable a glass jar
- 1 ½ cups baking soda
- 4 tablespoons castile soap
- 3 tablespoons water
- 2 tablespoons white vinegar
- 20 drops of essential oils:
In the glass jar put the baking soda and add the castile soap.
Then add the water and vinegar.
Add the essential oils and mix it well. It should look like a paste.
Once it’s ready just put it the toilet brush and scrub away!
If your toilet bowl is really dirty, the best way to use it is to put this toilet cleaner on the toilet brush and rub it all around inside of the toilet bowl. Let it sit for 10mins and then scrub it all off.
Now you can have a clean toilet without using toxic chemicals.
