I love making my own products because I know exactly what ingredients are in them. While cleaning I am breathing the fumes of these products so I want to make sure they are safe for me and more important my family. I just love these recipes below and they do work. But always try a sample spot and use at your own risk. I say that because I wouldn’t put the tough stuff on sensitive areas such as chrome unless I tested it first so just use common sense.
1 cup baking soda
1/2 cup salt (no iodized)
1/2 cup washing soda
5 – 10 drops Orange essential oil
1 cotton ball
I mixed all dry ingredients together well and added a few drops of orange essential oil slowly not too much or it will start to stick together. Mix well. Place in shaker jar put a cotton ball with a few drops of orange on it in your shaker jar to keep the orange scent.
1 cup of Scouring Powder (see recipe above)
1/2 cup citric acid
1/2 cup Borax
5 – 10 drops orange essential oil
Mix dry ingredients well then add few drops of orange essential oil mix well and place in shaker jar. Add cotton ball with a few drops of orange and close lid.
