How to Use On Guard as a Bathroom Cleaner.

The On Guard Protective Blend cleans the toilet with perfection! Not kidding or exaggerating, here. I wish I had documented the toilet makeover that I did with this oil blend, and it was this experience that convinced me on the cleaning power of On Guard.

This particular toilet smelled like a public washroom no matter how much I cleaned it, seriously, I detail cleaned this toilet every other day. It had an icky film that would grow on the wall of the bowl (hopefully not TMI). After reading about the germ fighting strength of the oils in the On Guard blend I decided to try using it to clean the stubborn toilet.

With only two applications of On Guard it was gone, still not exaggerating! All that I did was put about 5 drops of oil in the toilet, swish it around, scrub the toilet bowl, let it set for a minute and flush. That is it, I was floored by the simplicity and effectiveness of its cleaning power! If your profession is cleaning houses and buildings, you need this oil blend to use in the bathrooms!

To keep the bathroom smelling fresh use the On Guard Spritzer Bottle, recipe below, as room refresher spray.
