NaturalThis is the last natural homemade eco green cleaning recipe for a while before we move onto some more raw vegan smoothies! I wanted to end with these natural homemade scouring cream recipes that can be made in seconds with simple kitchen ingredients like borax, baking soda, liquid castile soap, vinegar, water, and essential oils. I use one of these three simple mixtures every week to clean my kitchen and bathroom surfaces when I need a bit of gentle abrasion.

Rather than use a toxic commercial scouring cream, it is so easy to whip one up in seconds in my kitchen as I need it. I am not putting harsh chemicals onto my food surfaces and into the waterways, and my house smells natural and fresh. I can also custom-build the scouring cream to my cleaning mood too! Lol! I will often use lavender as a calming force if I need to decompress while I am cleaning the shower! Ha!

Give these natual scouring mixes a go and let me know what you think. I would also love to hear about what you use too!

OK! Back to yummy smoothie recipes next week. Mmmmmm

Natural Scouring Cream

Natural Scouring Cream

Makes 1/2 cup10 MINS

natural scouring cream:

non-abrasive soft scrubber:

soap scum and residue cleaner:

  1. To make the natural scouring cream, mix the baking soda and essential oils. This will be a powder consistency. Then gradually add in just enough liquid castile soap to form a paste. I add in 10 drops at a time and keep stirring. Usually it is about 120 drops.
  2. To make the soft scrubber, mix the borax with just enough soap to form a creamy paste. Add the lemon oil and mix well. Put a small amount of this mixture onto a sponge, wash the surface, then rinse well.
  3. To make the soap scum and water residue cleaner, mix water, soap and baking soda very well. Add in vinegar. Use this solution to clean the sink with a damp cloth and then rinse well.
