    Ps not all of these are "common" household items. For instance, I don't have an electric toothbrush and if I did. I sure as heck wouldn't use it on my stove...I don't have a pumice stone nor do I have plastic blades. So, ya...

      The container says: less than 5% non-ionic surfactants, soap, lemon fragrance (limonese, linalool). it’s called ScrubDaddy Power Paste Natural Household Cleanser. You can find it on Amazon. Mine came with a ScrubMommy.
