Tired of inhaling toxic chemicals while doing one of the worst cleaning jobs in the house? Then, it's time to try a more natural bathroom cleaner.
Unlike conventional cleaners, natural bathroom cleaners typically don't contain synthetic dyes, chlorine bleach, ammonia, and other harmful ingredients, such as triclosan. Instead, they use powerful components from nature to zap germs, destroy soap scum, combat hard water stains, and remove mildew.
Of course, you also could use a green all-purpose cleaner. But if you're into the convenience of products that target bathroom messes, then try one of these earth-friendly cleaners.
