Did you know that the average person spends nearly thirteen hours cleaning and tidying their home each week (American Cleaning Institute, 2018)? Now, we can’t tell you if that’s too much or too little – we’ll leave that up to you to decide – but with so much cleaning to do we figured we’d make it a little easier with this Lou & Swirly checklist!
Septic Safe Bathroom Cleaning Products
If there’s one room where chemical cleaners are really put to work, it’s the bathroom, but beware homeowners! Overuse of harsh chemical products can be pretty rough on your septic system and might lead to costly repairs. In fact, just two gallons of chlorine bleach can kill off all necessary bacteria in a 1,000 gallon septic tank, so make sure you’re using your cleaning products responsibly or consider using septic safe alternatives.
For natural, septic safe alternatives our team recommends:
- Apple Cider Vinegar or White Vinegar – Good on hard stains and odors, this non-toxic, multipurpose product works best when you let it sit for a few hours and then scrub.
- Baking Soda – Effective and affordable! Let baking soda sit overnight in the toilet bowl and then in the morning, just flush and scrub.
- Amway L.O.C. Bathroom Cleaner – This L.O.C. or, liquid organic cleaner, is naturally derived and dissolves soap scum with ease. It’s also great for water spots, film, and more, making it a great all-purpose cleaner.
