The dreaded bath tub scrub! It has to be done, and although we have come to rely on products that make the job easier for us (like soft scrub foams), it’s difficult to admit that they’re not good for us. Especially since many of them are packaged in aerosol sprays, which are dangerous to us and harmful to the environment.

Have no fear, we have come up with a homemade scouring powder that, married with a little elbow grease, will rival your mammas Ajax! Our scouring powder is indoor-air-healthy and gives a well needed (and deserved) boost to your day with lively herbs and essential oils.

All of these ingredients can be found at the grocery store. The herbs are your basic ground herbs in the grocery spice aisle. I really LOVE this scouring powder, and hubby and dear daughter have also approved! It worked great on our tub and did a mean job of shining up our stainless steel sinks!

Magical Homemade Scouring Powder

  • 1 Cup – Baking Soda
  • 1/3 Cup – Borax
  • 1/2 Cup – Salt
  • 1 HEAPING TBS – Ground Cinnamon
  • 1 HEAPING TBS – Ground Clove
  • 1 tsp – Ground Nutmeg
  • 3 drops – Lime EO

Combine all ingredients together in an empty oatmeal canister (or other shaker container), cover and shake until well combined. Use a hole puncher to make several holes in the canister top. Pop the top on and you’re ready.

To use: shake into your sinks, toilets or tubs and scrub like you would with any scouring powder. Rinse. To cover holes, you can remove the lid, place a piece of plastic wrap over it, and replace lid.
