Borax to the Rescue

Borax is an old-time cleaner that's coming back into favor. You can make a natural toilet bowl cleaner by mixing 2/3 cup borax and 1/3 lemon juice. Apply to the inside of the toilet bowl and let sit for two hours. Scrub and flush for a gleaming shine. (You can also mix white vinegar with your borax. Let sit at least four hours before scrubbing away!) One brand of borax readily available is 20 Mule Team Borax, available in most cleaning aisles.
