Homemade Sink Scrub

Homemade Sink ScrubA quick and easy alternative to chemical-based sink cleaners is simply a mix of  baking soda and salt paired with a little hot water. I found this great tip on ThriftyFun and like that I can have it stored ready to go for anytime cleaning.

I added approximately 1/3 cup baking soda and 1/4 cup sea salt to an old glass peanut butter jar, covered it and gave it a good shake. I sprinkled some on the porcelain sinks in our laundry room and kitchen and then used a sponge and hot water to give to give them a good scrub.

The salt & baking soda worked well on the sinks as well as the faucet and handles. If you try this, just make sure to rinse everything you srub well so as not to leave a dry film on anything (especially the faucet). The scrub worked well to cut grease in the kitchen sink as well as remove dust and grime from the laundry room sink. Hopefully, you already have the ingredients in your house now to give it a try and enjoy the results!

Just tried this, it worked great! I hate using Comet and other cleansers, the dust from it coats everything and I feel like I’m choking on it. I’m so glad to find healthy alternatives.

I’m so glad this worked good for you, Anne! I know, I hate those kinds of cleaners too. And this one is also so cheap to make! :)
