This Homemade Soft Scrub Cleanser is so easy to make using a few simple ingredients.
I love being able to make all of my own cleaning products because it costs much less and I like to be able to control the chemical ingredients that I am exposing my home to.
When I first started using essential oils to replace toxic chemicals in my home, I found that they work perfectly for making your own products.
Plus they offer my family some added health benefits that I love, rather than cause health issues, like so many of the toxic ingredients in the cleaners I used to buy at the store are known to do.
Homemade Soft Scrub Cleaner Ingredients
- 1 cup baking soda
- 1/4 cup castile
- 1 tablespoons Witch Hazel
- 10-20 drops tea tree essential oil (I use the tea tree oil & lemon oil from this set. You can also buy single bottles here)
- 10-20 drops lime essential oil
- 10-20 drops orange essential oil
- 10-20 drops lemon essential oil
- Mason jar or another glass airtight container.
Saving Dollars and Sense Tip: If you choose to use other brands of essential oils that aren’t as potent as these ones that I personally use, then you’ll want to increase the amount of drops to 20-30 drops each.
Homemade Soft Scrub Recipe
Years ago I learned that no matter how messy my home would get (and it got pretty messy with little ones), as long as my sink was clean and shiny I felt like I was doing just fine.
I learned that this recipe does a fantastic job of making any sink sparkle and shine, no matter how dingy it might start off.
Start by adding the baking soda to a small glass bowl.
Add the essential oils of your choice. I suggest using a higher quality like these ones because the better the quality the more potent they will be and the less you will have to use.
I chose the essential oils listed in the ingredients above because they are great for cleaning.
They also boost your mood and are a wonderful air freshener. This way your house is clean, smells great and you are happy, even though you just cleaned the house!
Mix ingredients together until a creamy paste.
Store in a glass airtight container, a mason jar works perfectly for this!
That’s it. This homemade cleanser is super easy to make and works really well on pretty much every surface.
