Step 3: Transferring to a Bottle

Once your mixture is smooth, carefully pour it into your empty bottle with a nozzle. A funnel may be helpful for this step to avoid spills.

Applying the DIY baking soda cream cleaner

Step 4: Application

Your DIY baking soda cream cleaner is now ready to use! Simply apply the cleaner onto the surface you wish to clean. You can use it to scrub sinks, stovetops, countertops, and even toilets.

Scrubbing the sink

Step 5: Scrubbing and Cleaning

Using a sponge, cloth, or scrub brush, scrub the surface with the cleaner to remove dirt, grime, and stains. Baking soda for cleaning acts as a gentle abrasive. The dish soap helps to cut through grease and grime.

Rinsing the sink

Step 6: Rinse

After scrubbing, rinse the cleaned surface thoroughly with water to remove any residue from the cleaner. For tougher stains or heavily soiled areas, you may need to repeat the cleaning process. Simply reapply the cleaner and scrub as necessary until the surface is clean

Step 7: Storage

Store your DIY cleaner in a cool, dry place when not in use. Make sure to label the bottle clearly so you know what it is and keep it out of reach of children and pets.

    I'd like to see a video of it on a surface that wasn't already clean to see how well it works.

      Oh, and when we moved into this house, which we bought, the previous tenants had been renters. Let's just say some things weren't in good shape. I used Dawn and baking soda to clean the kitchen sink of a buildup of I don't know what and limestone (we live in a hard water area, we get limestone rocks in our faucets it's so bad). This really works.

    Remember to use the correct measuring cups for solids (baking soda) and liquids (Dawn). They aren’t always equal.
