Natural bathroom cleaners are an excellent alternative to synthetic ones if you’re concerned about the health of your family or want to reduce your impact on the environment. While you may get a plethora of “green” bathroom products at retail stores, you’ll usually find better results and save money by making them yourself. Plus, you probably already have most of the supplies on hand. Here are a few of our favorite all-natural and DIY bathroom cleaners, ranging from vinegar and baking soda to citrus fruits like lemon and grapefruit.

Grapefruit and Salt
Applying a mixture of grapefruit juice and salt to stubborn rust or unsightly bathtub rings may help remove the filth. One grapefruit and half a cup of coarse kosher salt are all that is required. All of your bathroom fittings, including the tub or shower base, may be cleaned thoroughly with just one medium to large grapefruit.
Use half a grapefruit or more than one grapefruit, depending on the area and the amount of dirt. Liberally sprinkle salt over the top of the grapefruit after halving it. Toss the leftover salt into a wet bathtub and cover the bottom with it.
Next, scrub the area around the tub using the grapefruit, be careful to “juice” it over the fixtures, and collect any excess salt as you go. After you’ve finished, give the grapefruit a quick rinse to remove any pulp or juice, and then throw it away.
Baking Soda & Vinegar
Baking soda, lemon juice, salt, dish soap, and vinegar are the only ingredients needed to create a homemade tile and tub cleaner. Combine in a big basin three tablespoons of salt, half a cup of lemon juice, three tablespoons of baking soda, three tablespoons of dishwashing liquid, and half a cup of vinegar.

Put everything into a plastic bag after you’ve mixed it. The cleaner is easy to use; just shake or pour a little onto a rag or the surface to be cleaned when you’re ready. Use a damp towel to scrub and rinse. When the liquid is combined, add ten drops of essential oil to create the desired scent, be it lemon, orange, or whatever else you choose.
For a subtle, all-natural aroma in the bathroom, consider a room freshener made of baking soda if you’re sick of buying expensive air fresheners.
The only things you’ll require are a tapestry needle, an essential oil of your choice, ½ cup of baking soda, and a mason jar. Just add 8-12 drops of the essential oil you like to the Mason jar with half a cup of baking soda. To get a feel for the right amount of essential oil, use a smaller amount at first. Just add more if you want the space to be scented.
Simply use the needle to puncture the lid, and you will be all set. To make the Mason jar more presentable, you can either attach a bow around the jar’s neck or glue some decorative paper to the lid.
My Own Foaming Hand Wash Recipe
Make your own foaming hand wash using unscented castile soap, coconut oil, and essential oils if those regular trips to Bath & Body Works are draining your bank account. In this way, combine 2 tablespoons of castile soap and 2 teaspoons of fractionated coconut oil in a foaming soap container. If you don’t have one, you can buy one online.
Next, add 10-15 drops of essential oil. Fill the remaining space in the bottle with water, making sure to leave enough space for the pump to be inserted. Put the pump on, give it a little shake, and you’ll have your very own foaming hand wash. Important notice: the Christmas season is almost upon us, and this is an excellent homemade present for almost everyone on your list.
