SINK SCRUB - the simplest switch

29 August 2020



Fill a jar with baking soda - add
10 d Wild Orange
10 d Cinnamon Bark
(You could alternatively use On Guard)
Stir well

Sprinkle into your stainless sink (kitchen and laundry) scrub ... rinse and shine

It smells amazing and makes everything sparkle

If you like a cleaner with more of a paste texture then you may prefer the soft scrub.


¾ Cup baking soda
¼ Cup castile soap (I use unscented)
1 tablespoon water
1 tablespoon vinegar
5-10 drops of lemon or wild orange essential oil.

Mix all the ingredients together to form a smooth paste. You can use this paste to clean all areas you would normally use a creamy cleaner... great for the bath...sinks and tiles.

My thoughts on cleaners - 
  • I want our home to be free of toxins and synthetic fragrances.
  • I want my products to be simple and effective. 
  • I want to know whats IN my products.... rather than have an ingredients list like this one ...
  • Jif Cream Liquid Cleanser -Calcium carbonate, water, sodium dodecylbenzenesulfonate, sodium carbonate, c9-c11 pareth-6, sodium cocoate, sodium bicarbonate, disodium distyrylbiphenyl disulphonate, 1,2 benzisothiazoline-3(2h)-one, perfume.
  • I don't want to look up the 'Material Safety Data Sheet' of my product and see POISON ...and a list of first aid option for 'inhaling' and 'contact' ... especially when its a product that leaves residue that may easily contact the skin of our family (including young ones) 
  • I just want to know that I am doing the best I can ... and that our bodies are not being bombarded by unnecessary chemicals when simple things work just as well.
