How to Clean Your Bathroom the Eco-Friendly Way
There are many ways in which we can make our daily routines kinder to our planet. A perfect place to start is in our own homes and trying to be greener in the way we clean. Keep reading for our 5 top tips to cleaning your bathroom, the eco-friendly way.
1. Bicarbonate Soda
Bicarbonate of soda can be a great, gentle alternative to harsh toilet cleaners or bleach. When mixed with water, the soda cuts through dirt and grease. But when used dry, it is slightly abrasive, so it can be used to scrub away difficult stains. Baking soda mixed with water is also a great way to remove any dirt and grime that may have built up around your bath, shower or floor tiles.
2. Switch to Re-Purposed and Re-Usable
Save yourself some money and do the environment a favour by ditching the single use paper towels when you clean. Invest in some microfiber cloths or simply reuse old clothes or towels as rags.
3. White Vinegar
White vinegar is the perfect, natural solution to get those tiles, mirrors and windows looking extra sparkly. Simply make a 50/50 water and vinegar solution in an old spray bottle, and use as you would your regular cleaning solutions.
4. Use Gentle, Eco-Friendly Products
If you’re struggling to switch to 100% homemade products, don’t be hard on yourself, just be conscious about the solutions you are purchasing. There are so many natural, eco-friendly and even refillable options out on the market that are better for your home and the planet. Our favourite is the Miniml range, which is also vegan, cruelty-free and British made.
5. Opt for Multi-Use Solutions
Multi-use products are better for the environment, make your cleaning routine easier, and prevents you from buying every solution under the sun, cluttering your cupboards. The Miniml Multi-Purpose Spray is a true all-rounder, working its magic to lift dirt and grime on any surface, soft, hard and shiny!
