It’s time for some deep cleaning in the Green Boot home. Why? I wish the answer was that I am a clean freak, but I am not. I appreciate cleanliness, but I am more of a cooking girl than a cleaning girl. Either way, I have had my fair share of light chemical burns from regular cleaning supplies. Maybe that is why I don’t care so much for deep cleaning. I am also sensitive to latex, so cleaning gloves can be problematic. If certain chemicals touch my skin I get redness and irritation. I even have pain that lasts up to 24 hours if certain cleaning supplies touch the skin right by my fingernails. Solution: it is time for me to make my cleaning supplies. I came across Frugally Sustainable and found a great natural scrub recipe.
Just tried it out and my bathroom looks sparkly clean. No burns, no irritation, no concern toxic chemicals.
Homemade Soft Scrub
-¾ cup baking soda
-Enough liquid castile soap to form a paste
-5 drops tea tree oil (disinfectant)
-5 drops of lemon (optional)
I used this scrub in the toilet bowl, bathtub, sink, around the toilet, and even on the tile. Love it. Works great.
