How much money do you spend on bathroom cleaners? Their limescale and grime-busting powers certainly don't come cheap, and a few different products could soon add up!

That's why we want to introduce you to homemade cleaning products. They'll save you so much money and can often work even better than their store-bought equivalents.

Our bathroom cleaner contains just 3 ingredients: vinegar, washing up liquid and essentials oils, all of which you probably already have at home! The vinegar and washing up liquid work to cut through even the toughest of grime and limescale, and really will leave your bathroom looking spotless.

Don't worry about the smell - the essential oils should mask it and any remaining vinegary scent will evaporate quickly.

    Is it ok to store in the spray bottle for further use or does it go off?? 😬

      Hi Helen! The shelf life of a homemade cleaner will depend on the ingredients used and how it's stored. Ingredients like vinegar and washing-up liquid have a long shelf life, so they will last if stored properly in an airtight container away from sun or heat. If it develops mould, an off odour, or an unusual colour, it should be discarded and a new batch made.
