Tea tree toilet cleaning powder and gel: A sparkling-white toilet is something we all strive for, but chemical cleaners with their garish blue coloring seem a toxic way to clean something as simple as porcelain. Remember here that antibacterial is not necessary most times, and a sparkling-clean toilet can be achieved with simple ingredients. Here are two options: a fuss-free powder and a quick clinging gel. If you have an old bottle from a past commercial toilet cleaning product, refill it with the gel to get under the rim. Otherwise, a regular squeeze bottle will do just fine.
Mix the baking soda and the tea tree oil until well mixed.
To Use: Turn off the water to the toilet at the base. Flush to empty the toilet bowl of water. Sprinkle liberally in the toilet bowl. Spray the baking soda mixture with vinegar to fully activate and saturate it. Let sit for 15 minutes. Scrub well with a toilet brush. Turn the water back on and flush. It’s as easy as that!
This isn’t a pure gel, but it does cling to the sides of the bowl to give you that extra cleaning power. Tea tree essential oil adds some extra germ-killing power.
