DIY Soft Scrub Kitchen Cleanser


Little-by-little, I’m trying to replace the chemical laden products I’ve been using, with new non-toxic ones. So when I found this copy-cat recipe for an all-natural, DIY Soft Scrub, I immediately made some. Since then, I’ve used it in the kitchen almost every day. And, it works great on the bathtub too.

It’s made from just 3 all-natural ingredients. You’ll be amazed how it will whiten your porcelain or ceramic sink without bleach!


Here’s the formula:

  • 3 Tbl. Castile Soap (be sure to get the unscented)
  • 1 cup Baking Soda
  • 15 drops Essential oil (Lemon, Orange or Citrus Fresh)

Citrus essential oils are wonderful for removing sticky substances or getting out stains. (I only use Young Living oils. I’ll be glad to share my “why” with you anytime.)


Making this DIY Soft Scrub is so simple.

You just mix the 3 ingredients together in a medium size bowl. When you get thru mixing it, if the consistency is pretty dry and paste-like, just add a little more of the castile soap.

Once you’re done mixing, spoon the scrub into an air-tight GLASS container. I use little half-pint, wide mouth mason jars that I bought at Walmart.

Whenever I’m working with essential oils, I ALWAYS use glass containers… citrus oils can leach toxins out of plastic.


I used my new super scrub cleanser on my sink… here’s a before and after picture.


I hope you’ll try this “recipe”… be sure to let me know how you like it.

And again, I would love to tell you about Young Living’s Essential Oils and how I use them.
