    Made my own bathroom/ shower cleaner with mildew remover as well as something to use for drain clogs no chemicals - no additional plastics! Feeling accomplished!

      I love that you made your own stuff and that they worked!  Now if only bathrooms would clean themselves...

      Cleaner: 1/2 cup white vinegar, 1/2 cup water, lemon peel from squeezed/pressed lemons used for tea.
      Drain clog remover: 3 Tbsp Baking Soda, 1/2 cup hot water, 1/2 cup white vinegar; pour down drain, cover for 5 - 10 minutes. Pour boiling water down drain to flush the rest. 
      I found all these on the great GOOGLE. The shower cleaner works and I don't worry about my cats being in my bathroom immediately after I clean. The drain clog remover cleaned up a sink that we had stopped using and had actually used Draino on with no results.
