Great DIY Bathroom Cleaner

I had seen a recipe for a home made bathroom cleaning going around Pintrest from askannamoseley.com.  It was targeted to get the "boy" smell out of the bathroom.  So I thought why not, I might as well give it a try.  I already had the lemon juice and baking soda on had.  I mixed up about a third of the box of baking soda at a time and about a 1/4 of a cup lemon juice to make a thin paste. When the lemon juice mixed with the banking soda it began to fizz, so make sure you mix it in a large enough bowl.  Once mixed I began to spread it around the toilet and floor.  I had to mix up 2 more batches and ended up using the whole box. It said to let it sit for about 10 minutes to dry, so I took this time to run to the grocery store to pick up a bottle of white vinegar and a spray bottle.  It was probably about 20 minutes later, but I though more can can't hurt.  As you spray the vinegar it began to fizz again, so you know its working some how.  After wiping it up with a bucket of warm water and a rag, I would still stray more vinegar and it usually fizzed so I knew it was still cleaning.  After all the paste was wiped up, I washed the floor with some Mr. Clean and I don't think its been this clean in a while, and I really did remove the "boy bathroom smell", however it did replace it with the smell of vinegar but that went away in about an hour.   I will definably do this at least once a month!
