How I do it fast, cheap and naturally sparkling
Bathtub and Sinks
Using a green scrubber and a bar of soap. I wet down the surface, rub the soap onto the wet green scrubber and run it over lightly the tub or sink. Then I go back to the beginning and rub harder as the dirt has softened. It rubs straight off and I rinse. Done.
I use Vinegar for germs and a Chemical free spray for the surfaces. First I spray all over then pour vinegar everywhere I can (without flooding the place). I actually then get a bunch of toilet paper and wipe down all the outside of the toilet including the seat etc.. Finishing off with the toilet brush for inside the toilet. This brush gets a good disinfectant at the same time from all the vinegar I’d poured in earlier. After that I pop the toilet paper in the toilet and flush the mess away. All done.
I run the water warm and slowly while squirting a little dish-washing liquid onto my dishcloth. Then I wash and rinse as I go. I find I use less dish-washing liquid and less water. I’ve tested it by putting the plug in. Using chemical free natural dish-washing liquid means its more expensive but I just use less and still get the dishes washed!
Use just a splash of dish-washing liquid, a Couple of cups of Vinegar and then fill mop bucket with very hot water. After mopping, use a dry bath mat under your feet, shuffling around to some music while you dry the floor off with it. It’s better if you dry as it also helps the cleaning.
