2 Ingredient Homemade Tub & Tile Cleaner!

A dirty bathroom can be downright gross.  Mold, mildew and bacteria grow like wildfire in your moist, soapy showers, tubs and sinks.  Regular cleaning is an absolute must.  However, if you are fed up with paying a lot of money for cleaners that are full of ingredients that you can’t even pronounce then you may want to consider making your own bathroom cleaner at home.

Making your own tub and tile cleaner is both cost effective and healthier for you and your family.  The cleaners on the market are full of nasty chemicals and don’t clean any better than what you can make yourself with simpler, more natural ingredients.  Plus, you can use most of the ingredients for other purposes in your home, as well, and any mom knows that when a product pulls double duty you save money.   It’s best to keep these ingredients in your pantry or cupboard so that you are ready for any cleaning emergency that might pop up.

How to Make Tile Cleaner:

Borax and lemon are all that you need.  Dip the half of the lemon in the borax and use the lemon to scrub away stains.  You will be amazed at how well this works.

Ingredients you should keep on hand to make all kinds of great cleaners:

  • Water
  • Baking soda
  • White vinegar
  • Half of a lemon
  • Borax
  • Essential oil
  • Liquid Castile soap
  • Tea tree oil

    1. Rather than mixing the two, I use the lemon as a scrubber just dipping in the borax enough to coat the lemon. Add more borax as needed. :)

  1. you posted something a while ago about making a paste of cream of tartar and white vinegar for cleaning grout and tubs:) THAT was the best find EVER!!!! It made the tub so sparkling clean with very little effort! It was awesome… now for help with water marks and soap scum on the shower doors…. I have heard lemon or vinegar….

    1. After you clean the shower doors wipe them down with liquid gold or any other oil based furniture polish. Helps prevent soap scrum buildup.
