Nobody likes to clean the bathroom. If we neglect to clean, it can turn into a toxic nightmare. It is not about the dirty mess, but the toxic cleaners we use. Generally, we use bleach and a number of other chemicals to clean the bathroom.

However, you have to use a gas mask while cleaning it and to protect yourself from the toxic vapors. If you know some techniques, cleaning becomes easier and it will be a less toxic.

There is a natural recipe which will cost you just a few buck and will clean and whiten your gout and tiles without releasing toxic materials into your face.

You just need 3 ingredients:

  • Half a cup baking soda
  • One tsp. liquid dish soap
  • A quarter cup hydrogen peroxide


Mix the baking soda, hydrogen, dish soap in a small squeeze top bottle. Baking soda helps you to remove strains and water accumulation in between the tiles. The hydrogen peroxide will make tiles whiten and clean them naturally.


You have to apply the cleaning mix on the grout and tiles and leave it for 5-10 minutes as they need a deep clean. It helps to dissolve all the dirt and water build up and also helps you to scrub it away.

If the floor does not contain hard strains, apply the mix on a soft wet sponge and clean the tile sand bathroom. Gently scrub the tiles and remaining area with water.

If you want a deeper clean repeat the process again or if you still feel there is some dirt or hard water residue. After the cleaning process, tiles and bathroom look fresh.

In addition, if you want to save yourself from the trouble of scrubbing again, here is another solution. Mix a solution of water and vinegar 1:1 and pour it in a spray bottle next to the shower.

After taking a shower, spray the solution. Repeat this procedure for 2-3 times a week. You will observe that your bathroom looks clean!
