I was so, so happy with how this recipe from my friend Ruth (from Living Well, Spending Less) turned out.
It smells wonderfully. It is easy to make. And it works really well.
Just be sure that you mix it up in a larger bowl. You would think I would have learned my lesson about baking soda and vinegar!
I realized after mixing it up that I don’t have a funnel.
So I improvised and used my tea pot instead. Hey, it was a little non-conventional, but it worked!
And then I used the spilled cleaner to scrub my clean off my kitchen table.
Homemade Tub & Tile Cleaner
- 3/4 cup baking soda
- 1/4 cup lemon juice
- 3 Tablespoons salt
- 3 Tablespoons dishwashing liquid
- 1/2 cup vinegar
- 10 drops essential oil (optional)
Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl. Pour into a plastic container with a lid. You can use a spray bottle (that’s what I had), but since the mixture is thicker, I couldn’t get it to spray out of my cheap spray bottle.
To use: Shake and pour a small amount onto a rag or directly onto the area you are cleaning. Scrub and then rinse with water and wet rag.
