Nobody wants to clean the bathroom tiles ; especially when cleaning them, it becomes a toxic nightmare. And we are not referring to the dirty mess stuck on the floor or the walls, but to the toxic cleaning products that are commonly used. Most of the common cleaning products we use have bleach and a number of other chemicals in them.

Cleaning with them makes you want to wear a gas mask while you clean as they tend to give off a lot of toxic fumes. But in case you didn’t know, the following alternative will make your life easier and cleaning a less toxic task.

A natural solution to permanently clean tiles

We have today to offer you a very inexpensive natural recipe that will clean and whiten the joints and tiles without releasing toxic materials on your face. You only need 3 ingredients:


  • Half a cup of baking soda
  • A teaspoon of organic liquid soap
  • A quarter cup of hydrogen peroxide (hydrogen peroxide)


Mix the baking soda, liquid soap (it can be the one you use to wash dishes) and the hydrogen peroxide in a small spray bottle or simply with a cap.

The baking soda will scrape off all the stains and buildup in the water between the tiles and the hydrogen peroxide will naturally whiten and disinfect.


Apply the cleaning mixture to the joints of the tiles that need a deep cleaning and leave for 5-10 minutes. This will dissolve all the dirt and mold and make it easier for you to scrub the dirt.

Or if you don’t have very stubborn stains, simply apply the mixture to a soft damp sponge that you use to clean your tiles and bathroom.

Rub the areas and rinse with water. If you want a more thorough cleaning, clean the process one more time where there is still some dirt or hard water residue or mold.

To make the tiles last longer, do this trick

Once all the stains are removed and the tile joints look flawless, you may want them to look good if you want to save yourself the hassle of washing them again. There is something you can do.

Mix a 1: 1 vinegar and water solution and pour it into a spray bottle. Make sure to label so you don’t get confused. After taking a shower spray the tiles with this solution.

You don’t have to do it every day, 2-3 times a week will make a big difference. You’ll see for yourself when you clean it next time.
