So I just spent approximately 45 minutes deep-cleaning the bathroom. That includes tub, shower walls, toilet (inside and out), floor (including tile-baseboards), sink, mirror and window. Which, in fact, is just about everything (I thought cleaning the ceiling would be overkill). It was raining when I started, and now the sun is peeking through the clouds. Coincidence? I think not!
I used 409, Arm & Hammer, Tilex, Windex, Ajax, and an environmentally friendly toilet bowl cleaner. A sponge that has officially been retired and a few paper towels. Rubber gloves that turned out to have a hole in one hand, and my trusty toilet brush. I need to make some lunch, open a window and breathe a little fresh air! When I run out of all these cleaners I think I will switch over to entirely environmentally friendly products, though there is something that just feels right about bathroom cleaners that involve hardcore bleach. I've been using Clorox Green Works in the kitchen - anyone have experience with specific eco-friendly products? I read a whole Real Simple article about using baking soda and vinegar and all that, but I'm just not sure I'd be ready to go quite that far. Though I'm guessing lemon juice and Dr. Bronners won't give me a headache.
