Keep Your Toilet Bowl Naturally Clean
You embrace a healthier life by eliminating additive-laden foods, and unsafe chemicals in your home. Reading labels, googling ingredients and weighing the choices you have has become a way of life for consumers all over the Sunshine State. Paying attention to those foods and products you bring into your home and making sure they’re not harmful can take a lot of time. But, if it keeps your home and family safe and healthy, you don’t mind a bit.
When it comes to your toilet bowl, homeowners in and around the Jacksonville area wage a constant battle against that slimy pink mildew that seems to develop at the waterline, practically overnight. No matter how often you clean your toilet bowl, the ring-of-disgust shows up, repeatedly. Not to mention the daily dirt and debris that accumulates from regular use.
Like many clean-conscious homeowners, you count on caustic cleansers to tackle the job. Most of these toilet bowl cleaners come with a long list of cautions, warning of the toxic nature of the product. Thought to be harmless, these cleaners can create dangerous fumes, especially when used in conjunction with other cleaning solutions. Many are not recommended for use in homes with septic tanks, or certain types of pipes.

Ways to Keep Your Toilet Bowl Naturally Clean
Keeping your toilet bowl fresh and mildew-free doesn’t have to include harmful chemicals. There are several ways to maintain a crystal clear and odor-free toilet by using everyday ingredients, from your pantry, or laundry room shelf. Here are a few:
Nature’s cleaner, white vinegar, is an excellent way to make your bowl sparkle. Regularly pour a cup into the tank and it will freshen and deodorize with every flush. The tank’s water will dilute the vinegar enough so it’s distinct odor won’t be apparent.
Safe, non-toxic denture tabs, dropped into your toilet tank, will clean and deodorize your toilet. For tough stains, drop a tab in the toilet bowl and leave it overnight. In the morning you can easily flush away those nasty stains.
