Another Amazing DIY project-Soft Scrubby Cleanser

I had so much fun with the Moist Towelettes the other day that I decided to try another DIY project.

Today I tried making and using a soft scrubbing cleanser.  This recipe is so easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy it’s a crime we don’t all make and use this.

Put a small amount of baking soda into a bowl.  Mix liquid soap (I used liquid castille but I’m sure conventional dishwashing liquid would work as well) into baking soda to form a paste the consistency of frosting.  If you make more than a single-use batch, try adding some vegetable glycerin to keep the paste from drying out.

Scoop the mixture onto a sponge and scrub away! I tried it on my kitchen sink and counters and it worked well.  I’m going to try it in my bathtub tonight before I bath.  Word is, this works great on the bathtub because it rinses clean and doesn’t leave any grit.

Can you think of any modifications that would improve this? I havea few in mind but want to hear from you first!

    add some 20 mule team borax to it too….. I clean with that alot and LOVE it.

  2. I was wondering about using borax. Wasn’t sure if it would make it more abrasive. I’ll try it in the next batch and see how it goes.

  3. This is a nice recipe. If you are looking to turn it antibacterial, you can add a few drops of Tea Tree Essential oil.

    Keep up the great blog!

  4. Great idea. Thanks, Rene!
