Bathroom Cleaners

Ok, so as you all know...I have two boys. They use the front bathroom which is also the guest bathroom.  The BOY smell had taken it over. UGH! Part of this was my fault, as we have been so busy lately...I have neglected that area. Part of this is the fact that little boys aren't SUPER aware of themselves...if you know what I mean. 
WELL.
I had had enough. Maybe it was my spider senses (I like to call my senses "spider senses" when I am prego cause they seem heightened), but I was just about to toss the entire room.
After cleaning the bathroom previously, I really didn't feel like the smell was completely gone. It lingered. I had to find something to knock this biz out for real.

So here we are. My answer. And it worked. YAY!
FOR THE SMELL: 
Mix baking soda with a little lemon juice or water until it's a pancake batter consistency. Work over the area, then let it sit for about 15 minutes.
Spray with vinegar, and wait a few minutes.
Wipe down with warm water and rag.

I was feeling so good about ridding the bathroom of the "linger", that I decided to go ahead and do my spring bathroom clean. The tile needed to be scoured badly. I came up with this...
For the grout/tile:
Again, make a mixture of peroxide and baking soda that is of pancake batter consistency. Scrub area with mixture and toothbrush (not the one you currently use). :)
Wait about 10 minutes or so, and wipe clean with warm water and rag.
I have read that some folks mix baking soda with bleach, but I didn't want to breath the fumes.

Not a great pic, I know...

AFTER

It really did a good job, even if my pics don't do it justice! :)

Just thought I would pass along this helpful tip!

Happy Wednesday-
