    what do you mean by “I emptied my toilet bowl by dumping a bucket of water in it?” So I pour a bucket of water down the toilet. Does the water go down on its own without me flushing?

    Also, what about killing germs and bacteria? Does baking soda and vinegar do that? Thanks for the tip.

    Yup, the toilet will empty without refilling giving you a surface to clean.
    As far as the germs and bacteria go, I cannot be sure, but I feel confident that my home is clean.

  3. Here’s one tip for a natural toilet cleaning:

    Keep the vinegar handy for cleaning glass, whether the mirror or glass surround on a shower. The easiest way is to mix vinegar and water – a 50/50 mix – in a spray bottle and squirting this onto the glass to be cleaned. Rub well with a soft lint-free cloth, then dry off with another soft cloth. You can add some essential oil to the vinegar and water mix to add a pleasant scent to it, plus some germ-killing ability (neat vinegar will kill mould spores, so if you have discovered a nasty patch of mould in your bathroom, attack it with neat vinegar, then make sure you leave the bathroom well aired to stop the mould coming back). If you haven’t got a spray bottle, dampen a soft cloth with a vinegar/water mix and rub it directly onto the glass. Dry off with a second cloth.
