I was out of my usual noxious bleach cleanser, but needed to clean my sinks. I decided to whip something up myself. To my delight, it actually worked! This is an all natural, fume free way to clean your sinks or any other surface you may want, showers, etc. It is very inexpensive too!


Total Time: A few minutes

Yield: About 1 1/2 cups


  • 1 1/2 cup baking soda
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • large bowl
  • clean jar with lid


  1. In a large bowl, combine your baking soda and lemon juice concentrate. I learned the hard way that this fizzes and initially becomes much larger than it will end up. So if you want to avoid a big mess, use a big bowl.:)
  2. Add your mixture to a clean glass jar with a lid to store for future use.
  3. As you can see, my sink looks pretty good!

  5. I didn't have the nerve to show a dirty "before" pic, lol, just trust me, they look better!:)

For homemade soft scrub cleaner, mix 1/2 cup baking soda, 1/2 cup dish soap, and 1/8 - 1/4 cup vinegar. Adjust amounts of baking soda or vinegar until it's the consistency you prefer.

I would use water instead of the vinegar. Vinegar neutralizes some of the baking soda.

I prefer this version. I keep a plastic spoon next to the container under my sink and just scoop out a little when I want it. If it's been long enough since I used it that it has dried out, I just add a little more water. I make about a cup of this at a time.

Instead of buying "Soft Scrub" for your cleaning where you need bleach, buy liquid dishwasher soap. It has bleach and works great. The best part is that you get 3-4 times more for the same price as the Soft Scrub and it goes farther.
