An effective house-cleaner, to clean and whiten the bathroom
To prepare your product, you will need the following ingredients:
• ¼ cup of lemon juice
• 1 tablespoon liquid dishwasher
• ½ cup of baking soda
Mix all ingredients and pour the mixture in a small bottle.
How effective is it?
Lemon juice is the best natural alternative to bleach. It will allow you to whiten your tiles and to remove stains naturally.
The antibacterial properties of baking soda disinfect the bathroom and get rid of any bacteria that proliferate. Baking soda also absorbs any remaining moisture on the joints between the tiles and neutralize the odors.
How to use it?
Apply a small amount of the mixture on a wet sponge and scrub the tiles and the various surfaces of your bathroom. Rinse with clean water.
