How To Make Lemon Cleaning Scrubs
I grew up in household where my mom made most of our cleaning solutions. She used white vinegar, lemon and baking soda for many of our cleaning solutions. One of my favorite was the lemon cleaning scrub. She use it for cleaning pots, the tub and anything stainless steel.
Ingredients needed for lemon cleaning scrub:
- Lemons: (I used fresh lemons. You can use lemon juice from a bottle. you will need 3 tbsp. (Also can be added is lemon essential oil for added Fragrance)
- 1/2 cup of Baking soda
- Dish Soap (2 tbsp.) (You can used Castile soap as well)
How To Make Lemon Cleaning Scrubs:
Pour the baking soda into a medium glass bowl. Add 3 tablespoon of dish soap. Mix with wooden spoon until is completely blended well.
Add 2 tablespoon of lemon juice. You will notice that the baking soda will stat fizzing. It will stop once everything is mixed well.
Spoon in the scrub into a mason jar. You can scoop out a few tablespoons at a time and put it on a sponge.
Where To Use The Lemon Cleaning Scrub.
Stainless steel sink: I use this to clean my stainless steel sink in the laundry room. Prior to using this the sink was pretty dirty and had tons water stains. I added a few tablespoons of the scrub onto the sponge and scrubbed the sink.
After rinsing the lemon scrub, I used a microfiber polishing cloth and the sink was so shiny.
Porcelain sinks and tubs: This lemon scrub is considered a soft cleaning scrub, It won’t scotch the porcelin sink or tub. I love taking baths each evening and I clean my bathtub each morning with the lemon scrub and it takes off all the grime and leaves it super clean and smelling nice.
When you clean the porcelain sink you don’t have to scrub hard, gently cleaning with a sponge will do the trick.
