New Homemade Natural Cleaners

Here are two new cleaners and one new polish recipe. 

Bath Tub Scrub:

1 box baking soda
20 drops essential oil. I use tea tree and lavender

Enough water to make a paste.
Apply to a damp cloth and scrub your tub. Rinse well.

Dish Washer Detergent:

Its not really a detergent, just a mild cleaner that won’t harm your dishwasher or your hands.
2 cups Borax
2 cups Baking Soda
4 packages Lemon Unsweetened Kool-Aid or 1/2 cup Citric Acid

Mix well and store in an air tight container.
Use about 1 tablespoon for each load. Use more if needed.
I have only used citric acid, but I am told that the lemon Kool-aid works very well.

Furniture Polish
In a small glass jar, combine:
1/2 tsp Olive Oil
1/4 cup Vinegar or Lemon Juice
10 drops lemon or lavender essential oil
Use a soft rag, dip in the polish and rub wooden furniture vigorously to a deep shine.
