Bathroom refresh series 2 – Bathroom cleaning hacks without bleach

I think we can totally admit that bleach is a great cleaner, but it does come with risks. Thankfully, there are safer cleaning hacks out there that will get your bathroom sparkly and new without using it.

If you’re looking for ways to clean your bathroom without bleach, you’ve come to the right place. Here I’ll be sharing hacks to clean your bathroom without bleach.

Hack 1  – Baking soda

Baking soda is an excellent cleaning agent. It can create an awesome paste that will cut through mold, mildew, and tub grime.

If you mix it with equal parts peroxide and let the paste sit in your tub, it will wipe away shiny and clean after just a few minutes.

Hack 2 – Vinegar

Vinegar is great for disinfecting as well.  I like to Mix 1 cup white vinegar and ½ cup lemon juice in a spray bottle and spray it all over my tub. Let it sit for 10 minutes, then sprinkle baking soda on top. Let it sit for another 10 minutes and wipe it clean. Seriously, your tub will sparkle!

You can also pour a half cup of vinegar into your toilet and let it sit for about 20 minutes. It will cleans the bowl without needing a toilet brush.

Just flushed your toilet will be sparkly clean! Vinegar also works great on bathroom floors! Just add a  ½ cup of white distilled vinegar to a half-gallon of warm water and get to mopping.

Hack 3 – Castile soap

This is probably my favorite hack because it doesn’t necessarily pertain to just bathroom cleaning. I literally use Castile soap for everything!

Castile Soap comes concentrated so you have to dilute it. Just a couple tablespoons of Castile soap in a spray bottle of water makes a perfect disinfecting spay! Want even more cleaning power? Use this spray to get rid of tub mildew and then sprinkle on baking soda and let sit. Seriously, the mildew wipes away!

These are just a few of my favorite bleach free bathroom cleaning hacks. Thanks for reading along! I hope they work for you as well as they’ve worked for me!

  1. Hey Kori,

    Nice series of blog posts regarding bathroom refresh. I really enjoyed reading both parts. And I thought to leave a comment in this post because I have been using Arm & Hammer baking soda for cleaning purposes as well.

    I always concern about clogged drainage. Whether it’s my toilet, sinks, or shower. So to keep my drains running smoother, longer, I’ve been making my own homemade drain cleaner by using Arm & Hammer baking soda.

    1/2 cup of baking soda
    1/2 cup vinegar
    And hot water

    This works very well so far. I was buying those little boxes that you can puncture and stick in your fridge for odor control.
