Cleaned our bathroom last night. My partner was really happy about it. :) I don't think I knew what soap scum was until I put a rag to this shower.

I used:
- water
- white vinegar mixed with water (roughly 1:3)
- baking soda (especially on the soap scum)

I also learned how to make the mirror shine without using newspaper, which had been my default until now. I basically just had to dry it thoroughly with a towel...

It's a little hard to see the mess and grime in the before pictures due to the solid tan color of everything, but it was certainly dirty.

Looks like you have two toilet "after" pics and no mirror "after".

What cleaners are acceptable for this BB?
We use Bronners, Mrs. Meyers and Simple Green quite often.
Also use a 10% bleach solution, and a 9% Vinegar and water solution.
We get soap concentrate from a local company and use that for most of our sudsing products.

Hmm, good question Carolyn.  As it's written it looks like any cleaner is ok.  I'll check with Paul and we'll likely change it to something more healthy.
