Homemade Green Cleaning Scrub for the Home.

I have used this recipe for over a year now and can tell you it is easy and works like commercial brands of cleansers like Comet. Making cleaners for the home are so much less expensive and have less chemicals. Better for you, better for the environment. You only need to have a few things on hand to make any number of products. If you have White Distilled Vinegar, Baking Soda, Washing Soda, Borax, Castile, Fels Naptha, Octagon (which they no longer make darn it) Zote, Dial White for sensitive skin, Ivory, handmade but not heavily perfumed soaps, peroxide, Club Soda, essential oils. You can make just about anything you would need to clean your Home, your laundry, spray insects like wasps..Oh wow, I get carried away because it is fun to do too....will post other cleaning recipes soon..Today is a product that a friend of mine Leslie Reichert The Green Cleaning Coach gave out and it is great so enjoy!
Label I put on my container Plus added the instructions for making so that is always handy, when needed.
We use a lot of Parmesan Cheese in this household so it did seem like a great container to double up on the recipe and fill with cleaner.
Label with ingredients listed.
Great cleaner and it cleans as well as Comet or any other dry cleaning product. I use this to deep clean my kitchen sink and it does an excellent job!

I didn't add the essential oil and just use plain but that could be done for a wonderful odor, the choice is yours

Yes make it you will enjoy using as you would with a heavy cleaner like Comet.
