Instead of spending more money on chemically filled toilet cleaners, why not try some homemade toilet bowl cleaners. There are several natural ingredients that you can use to effectively clean your toilet. Making your own allows you to choose the ingredients that are safer for you and your family while still achieving a clean toilet.

1. Vinegar

Fill a spray bottle with pure white vinegar and spray the entire toilet as well as around the rime of the toilet bowl. Leave on for at least 15 minutes, or however long as you desire. You can even leave it overnight. Afterwards, scrub the toilet bowl using a toilet brush. All grime should come off easily after having been soaking in vinegar.

2. Baking soda and vinegar

Flush your toilet to wet the sides of the bowl. Sprinkle a generous amount of baking soda. Spray inside the bowl with vinegar until the entire area is fizzing. Spray the remainder of the toilet with vinegar. Leave on for 15 minutes. Using a damp, clean cloth wipe over the toilet. For the inside of the bowl scrub with a toilet brush and then flush.


3. Tea Tree toilet cleaner 

In a spray bottle, combine tea tree essential oil and white vinegar. Spray the entire toilet including the inside of the toilet bowl. Leave for several minutes. Sprinkle baking soda inside the toilet bowl and scrub using a toilet brush. Wipe over the rest of the toilet with a clean, dry cloth.

4. Lemon juice 

Using a spray bottle, pour in some lemon juice. Using a toilet brush, scrub the lemon juice into your toilet bowl. Work in a circular motion, paying particular attention to the rings. When you are done, flush the toilet. Lemon juice contains citric acid, which binds to minerals in the toilet bowl making them easier to eliminate.

5. Lemon juice and Borax (NOT Boric Acid)

If you have stubborn stains or hard water you may want to give this one a try. Sprinkle 3/4 cup of Borax into the toilet bowl and scrub with a toilet brush. Let it sit for an hour. After an hour, pour in 3 tablespoons of lemon juice and scrub the toilet again. Flush.
