How to Remove Stains Easily and Naturally

Nothing is more daunting than a stain - whether it’s coffee on your crisp white shirt, dirty fingerprints on the walls, or mold and mildew lurking in your shower - removing them can seem like a tough job.

Removing stains from any surface is easy with our selection of non-toxic, plant-derived cleaning formulas!  Check out our suggestions for the best way to remove 7 of the most common household stains - easily, naturally, and safely! 


Tile and Tub Stains

Nothing is more visually unappealing than grimy tile and tub stains - and there are numerous reasons why your shower or bathtub could have caked on gunk and stains lurking on the walls, glass and tub. Whether it's mold or mildew, a result of hard water, accumulation of soaps that were not properly washed and cleaned, bacteria, mineral deposits, or an accumulation of natural oils from the human body.

Toilet Stains

The toilet is one of the most used fixtures in your home - keeping it clean and smelling fresh is easy with Method Toilet Cleaner. Toilet bowls can accumulate grime, hard water stains and rust and scale stains over use and time. It can be unpleasant to look at, unsafe for your health and unpleasant to clean, but with Method’s toilet bowl cleaner disinfecting and cleaning your toilet is quick, easy and safe! Method’s formula is made from naturally derived cleaning agents that are strong enough to remove built up grime, while also killing harbouring bacteria and viruses.

This spearmint scented formula will leave your toilet smelling fresh and clean. 

To use it, squirt the cleaner along the inner rim of the toilet bowl and let it sit for about 5 to 10 minutes and then scrub away the dirt and grime. If you are dealing with a more heavily stained toilet bowl, a pre-cleaning is recommended. This can also be done naturally using baking soda and vinegar. First, add 1 cup of vinegar into your toilet bowl, swishing it around with the toilet scrub and letting it sit for 1 minute before adding 1 cup of baking soda and 2 more cups of vinegar. This will create a fizzing mixture, let it sit for 10 minutes before scrubbing it with the toilet scrub. But don’t flush! Let it sit another 30 minutes, scrubbing it a few more times during this period to help lift and remove stains. Then flush clean. Once this step is done, you can use the Method toilet bowl cleaner routinely.
