Non-Chemical Toilet Cleaning Solutions

    The toilet can be one of the most unpleasant chores in any home, but there's no need to use harsh chemicals to tackle the task.
Chlorinated phenols, one of the toxic chemicals found in toilet bowl cleaners, can cause severe damage to circulatory and respiratory systems, according to cleaner Brent cross. You may be surprised, but all you need are a few simple items that you likely already have around the house to keep the bowl sparkling clean. Using natural products is less expensive and safer for you, your family and pets, and the environment in general. Try the following cleaning tips on how to clean your toilet bowl in a natural way:
   Your first step is to prepare the things you will use. In that case you will use 2 spray bottles, white vinegar, water, baking soda, toilet brush and paper towel.
   The next thing you should do is to fill one of the spray bottles with undiluted white vinegar and the other bottle with a half-and-half mix of vinegar and water. Label each bottle to indicate the contents.
  Then apply the baking soda into the toilet bowl. Baking soda acts as a mild abrasive that will not scratch the interior of the bowl.
   After that spray with the undiluted vinegar. Cleaners Croydon explain that it's likely for vinegar to react with the baking soda and create a foaming action. Vinegar's mild acidity cuts through dirt and hard water stains.
  Allow the baking soda and vinegar mixture to stand in the bowl for a few minutes or as long as overnight, depending on how dirty and stained is your bowl.
Scrub the bowl thoroughly with the toilet brush. Make sure to clean under the rim and all other tough-to-reach spots.
   Flush toilet and rinse toilet brush with the clean water in the bowl.
  As a final step spray the outside areas of the toilet, including the tank, rim and seat, with the diluted vinegar solution and wipe with paper towel to clean and dry.
