How To: Make Your Own Non-Toxic Bathtub Cleaner


There's a good-looking recipe for non-toxic bathtub cleaner in this month's Natural Home Magazine. They call it "Silky Scrub," and it's a simple mixture of baking soda, liquid castile soap (like the kind we recommended for backcountry cleaning), and a little antibacterial essential oil, if you'd like. Here's the recipe:
1 cup baking soda, in a medium sized mixing bowl
1/2 cup liquid castile soap
5-10 drops of antibacterial essential oil, such as lavender, tea tree or rosemary (optional)

1. Pour baking soda into a medium size bowl.
2. Add soap a little at a time, stirring continuously, until your mixture has begun to resemble frosting.
3. Mix in drops of essential oil.
4. Store in an airtight jar for up to a year.
