Today I'm sharing my all time favorite DIY recipe. It just felt like that sort of day- the day I bestow upon you the biggest cleaning gem in my DIY All Natural Cleaning Product jewelry box. Are you ready for it? I know you're sitting there, reading this in your PJs, while you sip your mornin cup of jo, and all of a sudden, BAM! You had no idea you were about to be so lucky! So get ready, this will change you're life!
This recipe takes about 3 minutes to make, it smells a million times better than the commercial stuff and it works like a charm. Basically, it's the whole package- I would use it on everything if I could. I love it on countertops, appliances, and everything bathrooom: tub, tile, spot cleaning floors, sink, around the toilet.
Here's the goods:
DIY All Natural Soft Scrub Recipe
- 3/4 Cup Baking Soda
- A few drops of essential oil - I like Peppermint or something smelling clean!
- 1/4 Cup Water
- 2 Tablespoons Dish Soap- Any brand- Dawn or Bronner's won't matter.
- You COULD add bleach, but I do NOT. It works so well without it, but a teaspoon would be fine.
Begin with your 3/4 Cup Baking Soda (no lumps) and ADD the Essential Oil.
I like to add several drops when I'm cleaning the bathroom.
ADD the 1/4 Cup Water. Give it a good mix.
ADD 2 Tablespoons Dish Soap to your mixture.
That's all she wrote! Give it a good stir and you're finished. I like to store mine in a plastic container or a recycled jar, it also has a good, long shelf-life.
Now you've made the best DIY cleaner in my arsenal- but don't worry, I have a few other tricks up my sleeve as far as cleaning goes, and I'll share them with YOU!
Can you believe it's almost fall? Are you decorating??
