Natural Sink Scrubs

Anyone who has a porcelain or stainless steel sink can verify how much trouble it can be to keep them looking nice.  Many times, the mass producted natural cleaners don't seem to quite stand up to their more toxic and traditional cousins. Now you can make your own sink scrubs that will make your sinks sparkle and shine! 

Here's what you'll need:
  • 1 part baking soda
  • 1 part dried sage, crushed
  • 1/2 part dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1-2 teaspoons sea salt
All you need to do is combine all of these in a bowl or container with lid and shake to combine.  TO USE: Simply sprinkle some of the mix into the sink, let sit for a minute, then scrub with a brush or sponge and rinse out with hot water.

Other formulas you can use:
  • 1 part baking soda
  • couple of teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • a few drops of sweet orange essential oil, or a tsp of ground cloves
  • 1 part baking soda
  • couple of teaspoons dried lavender, dried peppermint, and dried rosemary
TIP:  Finding this "part" stuff alittle too close to "a dash of this, a dash of that" you heard from your gramms?  Let me explain:  It's all about proportions versus worrying about actual measurements.  In the first example, if you use 1 cup baking soda, you'd need 1 cup dried sage and 1/2 cup rosemary. 

Be sure to check back, as I'll be posting more recipes for making your own natural cleaners throughout the year.  See you soon!
