Homemade soft scrub cleaner is one of the quickest and easiest cleaners to mix together. It’s a simple combination of baking soda and dishwashing liquid. In fact, after you make it a few times, you might not even need to measure the ingredients anymore!
I like to use a clear dishwashing liquid for this recipe and my favorite is actually a store brand (Meijer Eco Wise in Eucalyptus Lemon). The clear dishwashing liquid keeps this recipe as a nice white paste which for some reason I like better than a blue paste or a green paste if I use other dish soaps.
My favorite places to use this homemade soft scrub? My kitchen sink and my glass stove top. It works great for both those cleaning jobs.
Here’s how to do it:
HOMEMADE SOFT SCRUB CLEANER
1/3 Cup Baking Soda
3 Tablespoons Dishwashing Liquid
Pour the baking soda in a small bowl. Mix in the dishwashing liquid a little bit at a time and stir to mix. You want to have a consistency that looks like cake frosting. You can always add a little more baking soda, or a little more soap, to arrive at the consistency that suits you.
Store in a covered container. I keep mine in a small Tupperware bowl and it stays good for several months without drying out.
If you’re using an unscented dishwashing liquid, you can add a few drops of essential oil for fragrance too.
