By using simple, homemade natural cleaners, we can eliminate many of the toxins that could otherwise leach their way into our systems. And that is critical, especially in my kitchen!

Homemade Soft Scrub



  1. Place ½ cup laundry detergent in a mixing bowl.
  2. Add ½ cup baking soda and stir to combine (or use a rotary beater to quickly combine). Keep adding baking soda until mixture is the consistency of cake frosting.
  3. If needed, add a little water to achieve the right consistency.
  4. Transfer mixture to container. Keep container tightly closed.
  5. If mixture begins to dry, add in a little water and stir.
  6. To use: Scoop out a little soft scrub onto a clean, damp rag. Scrub sink and faucets. Rinse. Use a clean dry cloth to dry and shine the sink and chrome faucets to a sparkling gleam.
