Household chemicals can be replaced with folk remedies. Of course, they will not deal with old dirt, and in order to return the bathroom to its original whiteness, you will have to work hard with a sponge. But exactly simple methods that are preferred by many people who do not want to use modern chemistry (the reasons may be health care, allergies in the home, small children, saving money). Also, these cleaning agents do not damage the enamel coating of cast iron and steel baths, thus extending their service life.
Soda. This is an excellent and undeservedly forgotten tool for cleaning almost any dirt, except limestone. It removes grease and yellowness and perfectly removes an unpleasant odor … This material is very cheap and safe for family health. At home with soda? It can simply be applied to the surface with a sponge, or you can use the following recipe. Baking soda is mixed with soda ash in a ratio of 1: 1. The bath is wet and the composition is applied for 20-30 minutes. Then the surface should be cleaned with a sponge dipped in table vinegar without rinsing out the soda. After half an hour, rub the surface well with the resulting mixture and rinse with warm water.
vinegar. Table vinegar (9%) does a good job at removing dirt and rust. It will take some time to clean the surface. Soak the paper towels or paper towels in the vinegar solution and cover the entire surface of the sink. Leave it on for 3-5 hours. Then remove the paper and rinse the sink with water. Most likely, it will turn out to whiten the surface in several tones.
Citric acid … The citric acid solutions will remove the rust and limescale. Apply it like this. Dissolve two tablespoons of citric acid in half a liter of hot water … Using a sponge, put the solution on the surface of the bath and incubate for half an hour. Then wash it with water.
Mustard powder … it is made into a paste that is used to clean contaminated areas of enamel.
For lazy people, there are simpler recipes. Water is taken in the bath and dissolve in it a liter and a half of vinegar or 100 grams of citric acid. Leave it on overnight, strain the water in the morning and rinse the bath with water.
