This DIY "green" cleaning recipe is one of my one of my top nine. It works to clean tubs, tiles and sinks. And it's so safe, kids can clean, too. (My three-year-old begs to scrub the tub!)
Did you know that in Canada, manufacturers of home cleaning products are not legally required to disclose all ingredients (and hazards)?

I use peppermint liquid castile soap for all my cleaning recipes. I find the scent uplifting when I'm doing un-fun chores.
Toss a dollop of this scour in the toilet and rub vigorously with a toilet brush. If bathroom mould and mildew is a problem, try these three solutions.
