Frugal Tip: No Scrub Toilet Bowl Cleaner

Print Friendly

I read this simple recipe in the recent Prudent Living Magazine. As I get away from the store bought commercial cleaners I am always looking for recipes I can use at home for cleaning. This one caught my eye right away. It uses just several household items: borax, vinegar and a lemon.

Borax, vinegar and a lemon.

Rather than take a picture of the before and after shot of our toilet you are just going to have to take my word for it! This is a very simple cleaning solution.

Clean toilet.

Flush your toilet to wet the entire bowl. Sprinkle 1 cup of borax all around the inside of the bowl, and then pour ½ to 1 cup of vinegar all around. Let it sit undisturbed overnight and voila, clean! If you have heavy stains in the bowl a bit of scrubbing might be required.

For a heavy duty toilet scrub try this: combine 1 cup of borax and ½ cup lemon juice to form a paste. Apply this to the toilet bowl using an old rag or sponge. Let is sit for a few hours and then scrub off. Flush the toilet. the result, clean toilets withouts chemicals!
