Here’s a recipe for a homemade soft scrub that is good to use on tile, bathroom sinks and other areas where a bit-o-scrubbin’ is needed without a lot of abrasiveness.

In a bowl combine

  • 3/4 cup baking soda
  • 1/4 cup castile soap
  • 1 Tablespoon water

When adding the water stir the mixture with a fork to creating a soft, paste-like, consistency.

Use a sponge or cloth to scoop out the scrub and start cleaning.

This scrub can be used to clean the toilet, shower, bath, sink, you name it.

Remember to keep any remaining mixture in an air tight container.

Also, DO NOT add vinegar to anything with Castile soap in it. Castile soap is a base and vinegar is an acid so when you mix the two they cancel each other out. The vinegar causes the soap to curdled and become clumpy.

This is not the case for all acids and bases, baking soda and vinegar react differently, it has to do more with the properties of the soap.

Have Fun. Stay  Clean. Stay Healthy.
