4 Eco-Friendly Toilet Cleaners for a Sparkling Loo

Toilet cleaners are some of the harshest, most hazardous products we have lurking under our sinks. But what if we could ditch the toxic bleach and synthetic chemicals for good? 

Natural toilet cleaners show us that we don’t need to turn to chemicals for a sparkling loo. SaveMoneyCutCarbon’s four eco-friendly products are made entirely of plant-based ingredients – ones that won’t harm the environment should they end up in our waterways.

Not only are they super-effective at busting limescale, dirt and bacteria, but all these natural toilet cleaners are plastic-free, cruelty-free and vegan too. Plus, they’re made in the UK for a smaller carbon footprint. Take a look.

Bide Toilet Freshening Fizzy Bombs in Peppermint, Lavender & Eucalyptus

These toilet fresheners by Bide fizz away limescale and dirt with ease, thanks to the natural power of citric acid and bicarbonate of soda. The essential oils of peppermint, lavender and eucalyptus not only leave your loo smelling great, but they have natural antimicrobial properties too.

Bide is a B Corp social enterprise that helps historically marginalised people enter the workforce. Their products aren’t made in a factory, but on the kitchen tables of local people in Wiltshire – many of whom are refugees or prison leavers. This also helps reduce the carbon footprint of their all-natural, plastic-free cleaning products.


Bide Toilet Cleaning Scrub in Grapefruit & Eucalyptus

Also from Bide is this super-effective toilet scrub in a grapefruit and eucalyptus scent. It’s easy to use – simply sprinkle 1tpsb around the toilet bowl, leave for 15 minutes and then scrub with your toilet brush.

The natural Epsom salts provide a gentle abrasive for removing stubborn stains, whilst the citric acid and bicarbonate of soda tackle limescale. For a really deep clean, combine this toilet scrub with a Bide toilet bomb! All our Bide products are packaged in plant-based, compostable pouches.


Dri-Pak Bicarbonate of Soda

Like doing things the old-fashioned way? This pure bicarbonate of soda by Dri-Pak is an endlessly versatile and cost-effective cleaner. It’s great for cleaning surfaces, sinks, baths, taps and jewellery, as well as deodorising carpets, fridges, freezers, microwaves and bins.

To deep-clean your loo with bicarb, pour half a glass each of bicarbonate of soda and white vinegar into your toilet. Leave for 30 minutes (or overnight if it’s really grubby), then scrub out with a toilet brush. The result: a sparkly loo without chemicals! Dri-Pak products are sent in plastic-free packaging, and are vegan and cruelty-free.


Dri-Pak Citric Acid

Move over, chemical limescale remover – Dri-Pak Citric Acid is an eco-friendly descaler made from the natural acid found in citrus fruits. Not only is it a safe, chemical-free way to descale your kettle, but citric acid is also perfect for descaling toilet bowls, taps and drains.

To descale your toilet with citric acid, pour a kettle of hot (not boiling) water down your loo, and add half a cup of citric acid for at least an hour – preferably overnight. Then, flush and scrub with a toilet brush.
