DIY Citrus Soft Scrub

DIY Citrus Soft Scrub
So to be honest, one thing that I really missed when we started to cut the chemicals in our home was soft scrub...

It worked on everything! Stubborn sink stains, nasty tubs rings (thank you to the Cat in the Hat for the very visual issue with tub rings-lol), and really just anything around the house that needed that little extra elbow grease.

Thankfully after a few attempts, I found this little mixture to be super helpful and of course non-toxic when it came to those stubborn jobs. 

P.S. it smells AMAZING!

DIY Citrus Soft Scrub
* 1 cup baking soda
* 1/4 cup liquid castile soap
* 10 drops lemon essential oil
* 10 drops lime essential oil
* 10 drops orange essential oil

Directions: Mix everything into a bowl. Apply with a rag or a sponge to the area that needs the extra TLC. 
Rise with water when finished. Store in an airtight container(I found a small mason jar to be perfect.). 

I hope that this recipe blesses your home as much as it has mine!

DIY All-Purpose Cleaner

Making your own effective and non-toxic cleaners does not have to be hard.
It is actually very simple.

While I personally still prefer the simple, #cleansallthethings, Thieves Household Cleaner because it smells AMAZING and works just as good! Sometimes it is nice to have the know-how to make a cleaner if you're in a pinch or if you want to change up the scent a bit. 

This is my go-to base with some popular oils added for there cleaning benefits :) 

Grab yourself a 16 oz spray bottle(if you have a bigger one, just adjust the recipe), some natural dish soap, vinegar, and your handy essential oils.

DIY All-Purpose Cleaner 
_ 1 cup white vinegar
- 1 cup water
- 1 tsp natural dish soap(not castile soap)
- 15 drops lemon essential oil
- 10 drops tea tree essential oil

Pour ingredients into your spray bottle. Give it a good shake and you are ready to clean!
Use it on the counters, toilets, cabinets, and more.
