So let me tell you about my new favorite cleaner that’s made from 3 ingredients and will whiten your porcelain or ceramic sink without bleach!

It’s been a while since I’ve seen my white kitchen sink actually white because I refused to use bleach products on it. I just thought that it was doomed to be stained and scratched up.

Supplies to Make DIY Soft Scrub:

1. 3 Tablespoons of Castile Soap. I use this kind, which I’ve found at Target and Amazon, and I LOVE it.
2. 1 cup of Baking Soda
3. 15 drops of your favorite citrus essential oil like Lemon, Orange or Citrus Fresh. Citrus essential oils are wonderful for removing sticky substances or getting out stains. (I only use Young Living oils. Find out why here.)

Store the soft scrub in an air-tight container. I prefer to use glass containers, because citrus oils can pull the toxins out of plastic and I’d rather not have my new chemical-free cleaning product be filled with toxins. 🙂

  8. Just thought I’d let people know Dr Bronner’s soaps can be ordered directly from the company, and in these days of giants like Walmart and Amazon, I prefer supporting a smaller family-owned business. PS – this is just what I use for cleaning my sink too, although I use grapefruit essential oil, and I think that wonderful scent makes doing the job much more pleasant.

    1. I love the grapefruit smell too and am making this today. I am sure it is going to be a great cleaner. I hate using chemical ingredients to clean my house. I only use essential oils and natural ingredients!! Thanks for the great idea!!!

      1. Mmmm, grapefruit! I think I’m going to put some peppermint and grapefruit in the diffuser right now. Such a yummy smell!
