Have you ever thought about making your own toilet bowl cleaner? I think a lot of us believe that we have to have strong chemicals to clean dirty items like toilet bowls. That's simply not true. You can make a great cleaner for your toilet bowl at home and with natural ingredients.

Check out this toilet bowl cleaner recipe that worked for me:

Combine 2 tablespoons of baking soda with one tablespoon of olive oil and a teaspoon of your favorite scent (lemon always works for me). Throw this into your toilet and scrub away! It always gets my toilet clean.

By making your own home cleaners, not only are you saving on our planet's resources and reducing the toxic chemicals in your immediate environment, but you're saving money, too!
