Bathrooms are the perfect home for mold, mildew and bacteria. They're warm, humid and often splashed with water (especially if you have kids!)
These easy homemade bathroom cleaner recipes are a great natural, non-toxic alternative to commercial cleaning products. Even better, they cost pennies compared to store products... AND you know exactly what's in them.

This all purpose homemade bathroom cleaner spray makes it easy to wipe away dirt and grime while also killing germs and bacteria. Plus, it smells so refreshing!
Stir together all the ingredients in a small plastic container. (It takes quite a bit of stirring to fully integrate the dishwashing liquid into the powder.) You should end up with a slightly damp powder.
To use, dampen the tub or sink and apply the homemade bathtub cleaner with a sponge or rag. Rinse well.
I use one of those sponges with the plastic scrubby stuff on one side (like in the picture at the top of the page.) It even gets rid of that hard water/soap scum film without too much work!
Grout is a prime area for mold and grime. This powerful homemade grout cleaner helps kill mildew-causing fungi, whitens and brightens grout and dissolves mineral deposits.
Mix the ingredients together until they make a smooth paste. Scrub into the grout. (A toothbrush makes a great grout scrubber.) Let sit for at least 15 minutes, then rinse.
Caution: Wear rubber gloves - this blend can irritate the skin.
If you don't have cinnamon or clove oil, replace them with 5 drops each of thyme and tea tree (smells strong!) Use rubber gloves for this homemade bathroom cleaner blend too.
This simple homemade bathroom cleaner disinfects, deodorizes and helps get rid of the mineral deposits that cause toilet bowl rings.
I started using essential oils from doTerra after comparing them to the other brands in my stash.
I found myself using fewer drops per recipe and actually getting better results. Plus, I've never had a bad reaction, which sometimes happens with other brands.
doTerra's oils cost more than other brands, and that's as it should be. It's like buying a BMW vs. a Kia - the more expensive car is the better quality vehicle.
If you can afford them, I recommend giving doTerra's oils a try and comparing them for yourself.
You can buy doTerra's oils at retail prices by clicking the Shop button at the top. Or click Join & Save to become a wholesale customer and get a store-wide 25% discount. Message me if you want more details on the wholesale thing - why spend more than you have to, right?
I recommend Mountain Rose Herbs if you're on a tight budget. Their oils are more affordable and the quality is good. Click the links for...
Or... If you love having tons of options to choose from, browse through Amazon
and see what looks good to you. Just remember that inexpensive oils are
likely to be lower in quality - how else do they get the cost so low? You can get all supplies delivered to your door with Amazon too - bonus!
Of course, there's more to cleaning than just homemade bathroom cleaners... you can also get recipes for cleaning the rest of your home (office, car, cottage...) with fresh, inexpensive, natural cleaners.
