Every single time I replace a toxic, chemical-laden commercial household or beauty product for a clean, green and natural homemade product, I do a little happy dance. It’s a great feeling!

This paste is no exception. I use it to clean my toilets, sinks and showers. I also use it to clean porcelain mugs that have discoloured from tea and coffee. A soft dishcloth and a little scrubbing power is all it takes!

 

 

Makes: 245 g | 8.6 oz Prep time: < 5 min.

 

INGREDIENTS  

½ cup | 140 g | 4.9 oz sodium bicarbonate (bicarb)

¼ cup | 65 g | 2.3 oz liquid castile soap

2 tbsp fine salt

30 drops of essential oils

1 tsp hydrogen peroxide 3% (per use)

 

My choice of essential oils…

My favourite essential oils in this recipe are lemon and clove, but don’t be limited by my suggestions. Use oils that fit your budget, or those that you already have in your collection. Read here for more information.

 

METHOD
  1. Add all ingredients to a bowl and mix until combined.
  2. Transfer into container of choice.

 

TO USE

Add 1 tablespoon of paste and hydrogen peroxide to a bowl, and mix until combined. Apply to surface and scrub with a microfibre cleaning cloth. Rinse with water and polish with a clean, dry cloth.

 

RECIPE NOTES
  • Adding hydrogen peroxide adds a disinfecting boost to your paste, however, it can be omitted if you don’t have it handy. If your paste is too dry, add a little extra liquid castile soap and mix.
  • I strongly suggest you check out the blog posts under “Recommended Reading.
