Being in the market of manufacturing cleaning products since over a decade, we have found that people often find it hard to maintain cleanliness in certain areas of their house and work place such as the bathrooms, kitchen etc, no matter how hard we try. Hence with an intention to help and maintain the cleanliness in our houses, offices and surroundings ,Pranay’s cleanup is bringing you certain simple tricks and DIY’s that will help you keep your places clean like a pro!
So, to start with, let’s focus on bathroom cleaning. We all know that toilets are a breeding ground for bacteria and while no amount of constant cleaning can ever get you a completely clean and sanitized, we do have here an easy DIY for you to get clean and deodorize toilets in no time. So let’s get you started on getting those clean and fresh smelling toilets:
Things you will need:
- Baking Soda - 1 ½ Cups
- Citric Acid - ½ Cup (if you have trouble finding it, you can buy it here)
- Essential Oil (You can choose between Lemon, Lavender or Peppermint)
- Silicone Mold
While these ingredients might seem simple and nothing out of the ordinary but that’s what makes them great! You can easily find these around your home or at nearby groceries. Baking soda is great for absorbing odors and removing stains and citric acid works as an antimicrobial which not only helps kill but also prevents bacteria growth. And as for essential oils, they also help in killing bacteria while adding a fresh smell to the toilets.
Put the baking soda and citric acid in a bowl and stir. Add the essential oil and mix completely. Add water in small amounts to form the desired thickness, the mixture might fizz a little, this is normal. Once the mixture is holding shape, don’t add any more water. Now put this mixture in a silicone mold using spoon and press firmly. Let it sit overnight in room temperature. In the morning, get the cubes out of the mold and store them in an airtight container.
How to use:
Add one (or two if desired) cube to the toilet, close the lid and let it dissolve for 15-20 minutes. You can use a scrubber or toilet brush to give it a thorough cleaning if you want. Now flush and you will have cleaner and fresher toilets than before!!
Please note that using these toilet cubes will not drastically clean your toilets in the first use but will reduce the stubborn stains with regular use while keeping the toilet fresh and clean.
