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

Supplies:

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

Steps:

  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.

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.

Dishwasher Detergent is also great for cleaning blinds. My brother taught me this when he owned a house-cleaning business in Palm Springs, CA. Fill the bathtub with enough water to cover the blinds. Add the dishwasher detergent. Cascade works best and let the blinds soak for a couple of hours. No scrubbing necessary. Rinse by turning on the shower. Have a heavy bath towel ready and you're all set. They're ready to hang.
