Homemade Natural Soft Scrub

Here's another use for Dr. Bronner's Castile soap that I use around the house. It's quick and easy to make, so you can always whip it up when needed, and not have it sit around.

Simply mix together 3 parts baking soda, and one part Dr. Bronner's or other Castile soap.
Cut together with a fork, it'll start to look like a tiny batch of biscuits. =-)
Stir in drops of water, as needed, until it becomes a creamy paste.
There are many "recipes" out there that include vinegar. While I am a BIG fan of cleaning with vinegar, NEVER mix vinegar with Castile soap. It unsaponifies the soap, separating it and making it useless. Oily and useless.

Now that you've got your scrub, you can clean all over the place.

Coffee spill under the maker and dry on the counter?

A little soft scrub with a rag:
Gone with little effort!
Little ones are getting the fridge all grubby?
 Happy cleaning!
