Clean While You Sleep: The Toilet

Image from

Let’s be honest, nobody enjoys cleaning the toilet. It’s not a glamorous job. But we are here to tell you that you don’t ever have to scrub your toilet again (and not just because you hired someone else to do it for you!). You can clean while you sleep. We are starting a series of recipes/tips for cleaning your home naturally while you get some much-needed zzz’s. First up the toilet!


  • 1 cup borax
  • 1 cup vinegar
  • 10 drops pine or lavender essential oil (we prefer lavender because it’s easy to find)
  • 5 drops lemon or lime essential oil


  1. Combine all the ingredients in a glass bowl.
  2. Pour all at once into your commode. Allow the mixture to sit over night.
  3. Get your beauty sleep!
  4. Flush in the AM for a clean throne!

Pretty simple right? What is the one household chore you wish could be done while you sleep?
