DIY Homemade Scrub Cleaner

Yields1 ServingPrep Time15 mins

In my quest for a clean(er) bathroom, I created a powerful bathroom cleaner that works against even the most stubborn odors and dirt. That cleaner (which is amazing and you really need to check out!) is the go-to homemade solution for my weekly appointment in the bathroom. There are times when the job gets really dirty! So dirty I need a bit more help than my trusty homemade squirt bottle can provide. It’s in those moments that I turn to soft scrub.

 1 cup baking soda
 ¼ cup castile soap or Sal Suds
 1 tbsp hydrogen peroxide
 1 large jar with a lid or Mason Jar, the jar pictured is a Weck Jar
1

In a medium-size bowl, combine the baking soda, castile soap or Sal Suds, and hydrogen peroxide. Stir until the scrub cleaner looks like thick glue.

2

Spoon the scrub cleaner in a large jar with a lid. Seal the jar. This cleaner will harden when exposed to air for a prolonged period of time. The scrub cleaner can be used immediately and kept at room temperature (in a sealed jar) for several months.

It's important to leave room at the top of the jar for expansion. The cleaner will expand within the first 24 hours. I leave 2-3 inches at the top of the jar for expansion.
