Katrina A. Madarang.

Abstract
The role of housekeeping in the hospitality and health industry is to eliminate hazards and reduce the risk in the workplace. However, commercial toilet bowl cleaners, bleaches, and muriatic acid, which are toilet cleaning agents used by the housekeepers, have a strong chemical content which can be harmful to the health of the workers. Hence, the researcher came up with a solution that will create a new disinfecting agent at the same time stain removal that is natural and less harmful to workers and guests in hotels and hospitals. To make the natural cleaning agent, the fruit is manually extracted with the use of a mechanical presser. The extracted juice is sprayed to the stained toilet bowls and tiles. The effectiveness was observed through soaking the stains with the extracts to different duration of time. The stains on the tiles, that were used as a reference are observing the potency of the product, were removed in not less than 10 minutes. The efficacy of the natural cleaner depends on the bilimbi fruit that was used. The younger the extracted fruit, the stronger and faster it can remove stubborn dirt and stains on the tiles. The product came out effective as the commercial toilet cleaner for tiles and toilet bowls. Moreover, many studies have shown that “Averrhoa bilimbi”, the scientific name of Cucumber Tree (Kamias), has an antimicrobial effect and stain removal qualities. The product is eco-friendly. It is doesn’t contain toxic chemicals that would harm the environment.

Key words: Averrhoa bilimbi disinfectant, Averrhoa bilimbi stain remover,
