Bloggie Bestie – Myranda of Pretty Living PDX

Hi there lovelies! 
We would like to introduce you to…
Myranda of Pretty Living PDX!!
She is just a complete sweetheart… and she has a uh…. interesting post to share with you….
haha. Read on!

Hello Truly Lovelies, my name is Myranda and I blog over at Pretty Living PDX, I am so happy to be the Bloggie Bestie this week here on Truly Lovely! On my blog you will find post about my weight loss, my family, and our everyday life. I am a mom of 3 and wife to 1 and we live with my parents, needless to say our house can get very interesting!

I am embarrassed to say that my toilet has not been cleaned in a couple of months er weeks… between full-time classes, 3 little girls, a blog and household needs such as eating, the cleaning has been placed on the back burner.

This is actually a picture of my toilet, I know pretty nasty right? Try not to lose your breakfast

I have been looking for all natural cleaning solutions, so we can avoid using too many chemicals in our house.I have asthma and so does my daughter, so I want to cut down on cleaning fumes.

Naturally when I need to find anything I head on over to , because undoubtedly it has been pinned by one of my lovely friends. I recently found a recipe for cleaning toilets that only involves 2 ingredients, white vinegar and baking soda, so I was all in!

*Pour 1 cup vinegar into toilet bowl, let sit for 30 minutes (mine was more like 45)

*Come back, dip toilet brush in toilet (to get wet)

*Sprinkle some baking soda on brush

*Scrub the toilet bowl (inside)- Keep sprinkling brush with baking soda until it is gone- I used about 1/2 cup

If you don’t care for the scent of vinegar, you can sprinkle a few drops of essential oils into the baking soda and mix. I don’t LOVE the smell of vinegar, but it dissipates very quickly.

This is my toilet after, yes order has been restored in the world!
Doesn’t it look 100% better?
Just 2 ingredients, that I found in my kitchen, took my toilet from nasty to sparkling. Try this one today!

Next on my list to try are:

I hope you will come visit me at Pretty Living PDX!
