DIY Toilet Cleaner

Cleaning my bathroom has become a much higher priority now that our toddler is determined to open and touch EVERYTHING. The last thing I want is for her to be touching funky germs and gunk in the bathroom when I turn away for 1.3464 seconds. Toddlers…they are quick little ninjas!

The biggest culprit of undesirable germies and…we’ll just say “stuff”, is the toilet. Now, I love my natural products, but, I love me some bleach too. However, since my little one touches all things in front of her, I don’t want to be using harsh chemicals on the things she may be touching.

These all-natural toilet cleaners, from DIY Natural, get the job done without throwing harsh chemicals around. Perfect for households with little hands touching everything.
