All-Natural Bathroom Cleaner Recipe


  • 1 spray bottle


  • 1 cup water 236 ml / 8 oz
  • 2 tablespoons bicarbonate of soda a.k.a. baking soda
  • ½ cup white vinegar 118 ml / 4 oz
  • the juice of ½ a lemon, or orange or 10 drops of tea tree oil with the juice of ½ a lemon


  • In your spray bottle (or a large jug), combine your water and vinegar. I like to mix my cleaner in a bigger jug to prevent any mess and then pour the finished product into my spray bottle.
  • Very, very slowly, add your bicarbonate of soda – it is very important not to dump all the bicarbonate of soda in at once, if you do you will get the volcano effect, think dropping a mint in a Coke bottle. This is where mixing in a jug comes in handy: you need to very slowly add the bicarbonate of soda letting the foaming action dissipate as you go, a bigger surface or size of the nozzle to jug will reduce the mess.
  • Add the juice of ½ a lemon or orange. The juice of half a lemon will make the room smell clean and fresh, and will aid in the process of cleaning.
  • Add essential oil (I recommend adding tea tree oil).
  • Close the bottle and shake well (the ingredients may separate with time, just shake it before each use) Now you are ready to get cleaning!


  • Lemon juice (or any citrus juice) will leave a fresh fragrance in your bathroom, if you use a large orange or grapefruit only use ¼
  • White vinegar is a key ingredient, you cannot substitute dark vinegar for white, or you could cause stains
