Once I started using all-natural, DIY bathroom products, I discovered that I was sensitive to smell. Or, better said, it wasn’t until I got rid of toxic cleaning products that I realized just how toxic they really are. For example, my husband decided to buy a commercial hard water stain remover and use it in our bathroom while I was at work. When I came home, the fumes were so overbearing that I had to leave the house. He had bought it without thinking and using it made him sick for the rest of the day. Wow!
So if you are interested in a healthy lifestyle or raising healthy kids, a logical next step is to eradicate harsh cleaning chemicals from your home. The great news is though that you don’t have to sacrifice effectiveness for health. These bathroom products will get the job done. Oh, and they are made from inexpensive, ingredients. So once you make the switch, you will not only be healthier, but you’ll be richer too because you’ll no longer be buying overpriced cleaning products.
Here are seven all-natural bathroom products that you can make yourself:
This bathroom cleaner is made with just five ingredients, including essential oils. Kate used Tea Tree Oil when she made her cleaner, but you can literally use any essential oil you would like. Some of my favorite oils for bathroom cleaning are peppermint, eucalyptus, and lemon. Oh, and Kate calculated how much she spent to make a batch of this cleaner. The answer? $1.29!

Homemade Scrub Cleaner
Growing up, my mom was obsessed with Soft Scrub. She went through bottles and bottles of the stuff. She passed away from breast cancer when I was seventeen (hello! Did you know that some toxic cleaning chemicals have been linked to cancer? Yet another reason to make your own all natural products). But if she were alive today, I am sure she would be kicking herself when she found out she could make her own Soft Scrub with just three ingredients!

I am not going to lie; I am pretty obsessed with all of Becky’s DIY cleaning recipes found in her book, The Organically Clean Home.

I personally go to Costco and buy a huge bottle of Kirkland brand and use it to clean with.

No. 2 Spray
I remember when Poo~pourri first came out, I thought that it was magic! That’s because it really did work and eliminated a common problem that seemingly had no solution. Little did I know that Poo~pourri is super easy to make yourself and works on the simple principle that oil sits on top of water.

A Word About Curated Posts
The above is a curated post. Some people call them round-ups, but I like the phrase “curated post” a lot better because I have spent hours putting each of these lists together. I have been a Pinterest junkie for years, and I am always looking for the newest or best or most interesting DIY project out there. Finding these items, testing them, and then using them on a daily basis is so much fun AND, I have discovered, helps save me money.
