I found this amazing DIY bathroom cleaner recipe in a green cleaning book I purchased second hand online called “Clean & Green” by Annie Berthold-Bond. First published in 1990 this gem of a reference book shows that ‘good old fashioned know-how’ never goes out of style.

Annie tells her story of how she came about this bathroom cleaner recipe:
“My friend Walter wanted me to develop a nontoxic tub cleaner that had super power, and here it is.  I stood in the bathtub one winter, barefoot, spraying different formulas on the walls, until I came up with this solution. Place all the ingredients in a spray bottle and shake well. Spray the cleaner onto the tub or tile and rinse or wipe off with a damp sponge.  If your bottle clogs up, next time use less washing soda and borax.”
One thing I can assure you of is that when using our ByMe glass spray bottles you will have no troubles with clogging triggers! Unlike other glass spray bottles that use cheap triggers and can’t handle vinegar or minerals such as borax or washing soda, the ByMe triggers are  imported directly from the USA because we have learnt that when it comes to DIY cleaning you need triggers that can go the distance!
So here is Annie’s bathroom cleaner recipe. I hope you find it as effective as I do.

Bathroom Cleaner Recipe

Add to your bottle in the following order:

1 teaspoon of borax

½ teaspoon washing soda

Your essential oils of choice

3 tablespoons of vinegar*

Fill halfway with very hot water, attach the trigger and turn it to the closed position then shake until the minerals have completely dissolved.

Add ½ teaspoon castile liquid soap** and shake gently until combined.

Top up with water.

* If using on natural stone omit vinegar

** Follow order, if castile liquid soap is added to straight vinegar it will curdle.
