Of out all the chores that need to be done regularly, the most unpleasant and tedious one is cleaning the bathroom, especially the toilet bowl and tank.
Many powerful products exist to make the job easier, but they are full of harmful chemicals that you end up inhaling throughout the cleaning process and that linger in the air for days afterwards. The toxic ingredients they contain can also cause chemical burns, skin irritation, and damage to the eyes, nose and throat.
Over time, the use of common cleaning products can even contribute towards cancer, asthma, and reproductive disorders (1,2).
And while green cleaning products are available on the market, they typically cost a lot of money and they don’t always get the job done. Moreover, with the rise in green marketing, many products advertised as safe and all-natural still contain unnecessary toxic substances (3).
You don’t have to go out of your way to buy the newest “green” product, just look in your pantry!
The Wonders of Vinegar
As you probably know, vinegar is the most powerful cleaning tool you can use on nearly every surface: from mirrors to tiles to hardwood floors and even water-stained stainless steel.
Even though vinegar can clean just about everything, there are other simple household products that can get the job done.
