To make this cheap and SUPER effective cleaning concoction of your own, first gather together these ingredients:
- Baking soda
- Dish soap
- Essential oil of your choice (we like either lemon or orange for this one!)
All you need to do is combine equal parts baking soda and dish soap (about ¼ cup each) into a mixing bowl. Add approximately 10 drops of essential oil, then stir together. This mixture won’t keep for very long, so be sure that you make only enough for what you need.
Now, don’t you go thinking that you can just slap this stuff on and go on with your day. As we mentioned before, this solution does break down soap scum much faster than many of the store-bought options, BUT, there is a method to the madness that you must follow!To learn how to properly apply this heaven-sent cleaning solution to your grimy tub, be sure to watch Clean My Space’s video below.
