The following ingredients can be of use as amazing environment-friendly cleaning products for your bathroom.
1. Castile Soap
Castile Soap is one of the favorite ingredients in making homemade bathroom cleaners. It comes from all natural vegetable oils such as oils from coconut, olive, hemp, almond, and walnut. Just like the baking soda, castile soap is also a mild cleanser with a pH scale of 8.9. Mixing it with water, it will charge atoms that draw and capture grease and dirt.

2. Baking Soda
Sodium Bicarbonate or best known as Baking Soda is one of the most popular eco-friendly and low-cost cleaning hacks today. It reacts with stains and results to glycerol which is a natural cleaning ingredient. Combining baking soda with vinegar creates a carbonic acid that intensifies the acids in vinegar which makes cleaning process more efficient. Baking Soda can also be an air freshener with its alkali substance that acts as air germ remover.

But there is a downside as it is not that much of use on surfaces like granite and marble. Still, vinegar is among the many all-purpose natural cleaning ingredients. Its performance can still be stellar when it combines with other products. Vinegar and the other two products above are okay for use on bidets.
