Out of all the rooms at home, the bathroom is possibly the hardest one to clean because it is the most frequently used and it has so many different surfaces—including tiles. Regardless of shape or size, these ceramic blocks gather dirt and grime that can be tough to scrub off. To help you out, we found a recipe for an all-purpose cleaner that will get them sparkling in no time. Check it out below: 

What you need: 

  • 3/4 cup of baking soda
  • 1/3 cup of lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons of salt
  • 3 tablespoons of dishwashing liquid
  • 1/2 cup of white vinegar

How-to:  

1. Pour all the ingredients together in a mixing bowl. Stir until everything is blended well. 

2. Use a funnel to transfer it to a spray bottle. Make sure to use a quality container as this mixture is quite thick.

3. Shake well before use. Pour a small amount directly onto the surface you're cleaning, scrub with a sponge (or a brush for tougher stains) and rinse with water. 

RL Tip: Leave the cleaner to soak for a few minutes before scrubbing—this helps loosen build up and stubborn stains.
