It always felt a bit weird to scrub my sink, toilet, and bathtub with Clorox or Vim and then watch all those toxic chemicals go straight down the drain. Right into to our water system where yes, it’s filtered from our water system but that doesn’t stop damage to lake species.
Most mainstream abrasive cleaners are full of toxic chemicals and it’s a bit ironic that we use them to keep our house free of germs of bacteria. I know that when I am cleaning the tub I often cough as a result of those nasty toxins entering my lungs. Enough is enough!
This may be the easiest DIY recipes ever as it requires only one ingredient: baking soda. Sprinkle liberally and clean using a sturdy rag or cloth.
I tried this out on my sinks today and it was easy as pie – no extra elbow grease required. I’m happy with the result – gleaming clean sinks and a guilt free conscious.
