When I first dipped my toes into the all-natural cleaning world and this DIY cleaner a few years ago, I was amazed at how easy it was. All-natural DIY cleaners are not only easy to make, but they are much cheaper than mass-produced cleaners, better for the environment, and better for my family’s health.
Here’s my favorite, super simple kitchen and bath scrub!
What You’ll Need
- Baking Soda
- A Container (such as a mason jar)
- A mini scoop or card stock
- Your Favorite Natural Dish Soap (I like Seventh Generation or Dr. Bronner’s Castile Soap)
- A Scrub Brush
- Essential Oil (optional, for fragrance)
How To Make It
- Fill a jar with baking soda.
- Place a little scoop into the jar. Alternatively, replace the mason jar lid with hole-punched card stock (as pictured).
- Optional: Add about 10-20 drops of essential oil. I like to switch up the fragrance depending on the season or my mood. Stir it in with a butter knife.
That’s it! I told you it was simple, right?
How To Use It
When you want to clean your kitchen sink, bathroom sink, or even bathtub, all you need to do is:
- Sprinkle a scoop of baking soda into the sink.
- Drizzle a squirt of dish soap into the sink.
- Scrub it with a scrub brush.
There you have it—the easiest, cheapest way to clean a sink! This DIY cleaner is so simple, you can easily turn a nightly sink scrub into a habit and wake up every morning to a clean kitchen.
