21 days to a more natural home series part 5 –scouring powder


all natural home series
On day 5 of our series I will show you how to make an all natural scouring powder that will replace your comet.

The problem area that we have in our household is the tub.  It can get real nasty fast.  I relied on comet to get all the soap scum off of the walls and then rinsed like crazy so that my children would not be sitting in those chemicals.  Even while giving them a bath I knew there were still chemicals in their tub water.  But no need to worry anymore.

This recipe is all natural, and works just as well as comet does.  We have hard water and it leaves rust stains in the tub.  I have found that if I use this on a daily basis it will remove the rust.   But if I wait too long then its harder to scrub off the rust, the key is maintenance.

Mix up the following 3 ingredients and then I place in a recycled parmesan cheese container.  I have found it is easier to apply it in tubs and toilets this way.

  •  1 cup baking soda
  • 1 cup borax
  • 1 cup salt

002

That’s it, easy and simple.  The way life was intended.

Day 6 will be a recipe to clean your windows and mirrors
