How about making your own natural cleanser from the ingredients you have in your kitchen? I’ve used this for years for my kitchen and bathroom sinks and the bathtub. It works well, smells great and is completely natural and non-toxic.
Here are the three simple ingredients:
Dried, Crushed Lemon Peel
Lemon Essential Oil
In a large mixing bowl combine 2 cups of baking soda and 2/3 cup of dried, crushed lemon peel. (I buy it in the spice section at our local grocery store.) Mix together and add about 15 drops of lemon essential oil, stir and store in small mason jars. I keep one under the sink in each of my bathrooms and in the kitchen.
This natural cleanser makes a great gift too.
