Cleaning up our environment by using natural cleaners is a great way to reduce our toxic load. I know that making my own cleaners is not only cost effective, but I am also helping my families health today and in the long term.
One of my favorite cleaning hacks is a DIY sink scrub. It works AMAZING!
Sink and Tub Scrub :
For sparkling clean sinks, tubs and counters, mix drops of Lemon, Lemongrass, Peppermint, or Wild Orange essential oils with baking soda and enough water to make a paste. I used 2 cups baking soda and 10 drops lemon and 10 drops peppermint. I filled the paste into a wide mouth mason jar for easy scooping.
