DIY: Bathroom Tile Cleanser
I’d have to admit that my favorite all-around power cleanser at home is bleach. However, too much use of this thing can actually be harmful. Since it’s powerful stuff, it can actually eat away at material and if used full-strength can be harmful to you as user. Here’s an alternative to bleach for use for bathroom tiles and similar surfaces.
What you need:
- can of cream of tartar
- lemon wedges
What to do:
- Wet the tiled surface
- Sprinkle cream of tartar on the tiled surface
- Rub the surface with the cut lemon
- It takes quite a bit of effort and elbow grease but the effect would be great
Note: Basically, cream of tartar (potassium bitartrate) is a combination of acids while lemon contains a mix of acid (ascorbic acid) and oils that prove to be great natural cleansers.
