I adapted this recipe from Crunchy Betty and I love it! It cleans everything in my bathroom and in other parts of he house as well, and is so cheap to make.
DIY Bathroom Scrub Recipe
- 1/4 c. baking soda
- 1/4 c. washing soda
- 1/4 c. liquid castile soap
- 1 capful of hydrogen peroxide
- 2 Tbsp. white vinegar
- 25 drops lemon balm*
- 10 drops peppermint essential oil*
- 1/4 c. Water
Pour all dry ingredients into a wide-mouth glass jar. (I find that a salsa jar usually works best for this). Next add the essential oils and mix until well blended. (The mixture will be a bit crumbly at this point). Then add the vinegar and water and mix the ingredients until creamy. The vinegar will react with the baking soda and fizz a bit, but it’s completely harmless.
How to Use:
Scoop out a tablespoon of the cream and scrub on tile with a wet a Skoy cloth or microfiber cloth. Rinse with another wet cloth, and wipe dry. I use this on my shower tile, in the fiberglass tub, the porcelain sink and the marble countertop. I only need a scoop for the sink 2 for the shower and three for the tub. It works great o the soap scum on my glass shower door along with my Glass Cleaner . I also use it to clean the toilet bowl. A little goes a long way.
Try it out, and let me know how you like it! (you may need to add more water and/or soap to get the consistency right)
