|That is not Lysol in that can!|
First, I combined a few different ideas from Pinterest to create my own disinfecting wipes. I used an old Lysol container and put in pieces of my husband's old undershirts that I cut up. (I cut the body of the shirt into quarters for these wipes.) About 10 of these wipes fit in the container. I mixed up a cleaning solution in a jar that consisted of the following:
- 1/2 c. vinegar
- 1/2 tsp. Dawn dish soap
- about 15 drops of essential oils (I like orange and tea tree oil.)
The second idea is for cleaning the tub. I use coconut oil in my boys' bath water in the winter and this tends to make my tub get dirty in a hurry. It is so much work trying to scrub out the bathtub, that I tend to put it off way too long. I bought a little dish scrubber (shown above) and filled it with equal parts Dawn dish soap and vinegar. I keep it right in the shower on the hanging rack. About once a week while I'm taking a shower, I shake it up and do a quick once over on the tub and tiles. This takes less than a minute and has been keeping my tub nice and clean. I'm thrilled to give up the task of scrubbing out the bathtub every month!
Do you have any tips for keeping the bathrooms clean?
