Homemade Natural Cleaning Products

The transition from store bought cleaners to making my own natural cleaning products has not been as difficult as I thought it would be. The most difficult part was locating the liquid castile soap needed for the scouring scrub. After checking with several local retailers, I finally turned to the internet to purchase the soap. The actual making of the scrub and cleaner was very easy. The all-purpose cleaner can be made in advance and stored in a cool, dry place. A fresh batch of the scrub is to be mixed each time you need it. For my purposes, I halved the ingredients for the scouring scrub which was enough to clean two bathrooms and a kitchen sink. I purchased Dr. Bronner’s 18-in-1 Hemp Pure Liquid Castile Lavender soap which has a nice, fresh scent. I admit to being somewhat skeptical about the effectiveness of the scouring scrub but was amazed at the great results! These products are cost-effective, natural and easy to make. What’s not to love?
