DIY

White vinegar is a very good natural cleanser. You can use it in aerosol form by mixing it with water (equal quantities).

To scrub toilets, use undiluted white vinegar and scrub it with a toilet brush. This will remove limescale, stains and odours.

To clean the bathtub, shower or sink, use a mixture of baking soda (1/4 cup) and white vinegar (1/2 cup).

Remember to use microfibre cloths to clean without scratching.
