Every bathroom needs a good scrub from time to time. This simple and effective DIY Bathroom Scrub costs pennies to make and you can clean without worrying about any harmful chemicals.
Check the ingredients:
- Baking soda
- Liquid Castile soap or dish soap
- Essential oils (optional for fragrance)
- Empty container or jar
- Measure out the baking soda: Start by measuring out the baking soda. You’ll need about 1 cup of baking soda for this recipe, but you can adjust the amount based on the size of the container you’re using.
- Add liquid soap: Add a few tablespoons of liquid Castile soap or dish soap to the baking soda. This will create a paste that’s easy to spread and helps break down grime and stains.
- Mix the ingredients: Use a spoon or a spatula to mix the baking soda and soap together. Add water gradually, a little at a time, and continue mixing until you achieve a thick, creamy consistency. You want it to be a spreadable paste, but not too runny.
- Optional: If you’d like to add a pleasant scent to your scrub, you can include a few drops of your favorite essential oils. Essential oils like tea tree, lavender, or lemon work well in bathrooms. Mix them into the paste until you achieve the desired fragrance.
- Store the scrub: Transfer the DIY bathroom scrub into an airtight container or jar with a lid. Make sure to label it properly. Store it in a cool, dry place when not in use.
How to use the DIY bathroom scrub:
To clean your bathroom surfaces, follow these steps:
- Wet the surface: Before applying the scrub, wet the surface you want to clean with water. This helps the scrub adhere better and activate the cleaning agents.
- Apply the scrub: Scoop out a small amount of the DIY bathroom scrub and apply it to the wet surface. Use a sponge, scrub brush, or cloth to spread the scrub evenly.
- Scrub and clean: Scrub the surface using circular motions, focusing on stains, soap scum, or grime. The baking soda will act as an abrasive while the soap helps break down dirt and grease.
- Rinse thoroughly: After scrubbing, rinse the surface thoroughly with water to remove any residue. Use a clean cloth or sponge to wipe away any remaining scrub.
- Dry and admire: Dry the cleaned surface with a clean towel or cloth, and you’ll have a sparkling bathroom!
