Green Clean: Lemon Scrubber

Weekends are cleaning time at my house, and I have been on the hunt for alternative cleaning products. Specifically ones that don't contain ammonia or bleach. Flipping through the pages of Body+Soul, I found directions for a homemade all purpose scrub. It worked wonders on my sinks and tub!

What you need:
½ cup baking soda
Plant-based liquid soap (like Castille soap)
½ lemon

What you do:

  1. Pour baking soda into a bowl.
  2. Add just enough liquid soap to make a creamy paste.
  3. Spread mixture on the flat side of the lemon and scrub to your heart's content - the lemon acts as a sponge and leaves a natural citrus scent.
  4. Use a damp rag or sponge to wipe away any residue. You'll find the paste will stay moist for a few hours allowing you to scrub for hours if you want!

Fit's Tip: I like to use Dr. Bronner's liquid soap! The peppermint soap is great.
