If you’ve been around Wellness Media for a while, then you know we do our best to stay away from external stressors like chemicals found in many personal care and household cleaning products. That’s why we make a lot of our own every day items like foundation powder, lotion, and glass cleaner. We have found that making our own products not only saves us quality, but time and money as well. One product that we really find helpful from time to time is Soft Scrub. It’s effective on dirtier surfaces like those found in the bathroom or kitchen. But we wouldn’t want to original, chemical-laden stuff anywhere near our toothbrushes or food. So a DIY Soft Scrub cleaner is in order! As most DIYs, this scrub is simple and easy to make, requiring few ingredients which will save you money!
Have you ever made your own bathroom cleaner? What ingredients did you use?
“Let’s tackle the dirtiest part of the house. You know that room we take one look at and turn around and close the door in a moment of fight or flight. Wait. Is that just me? Let’s just pretend this is a global mom thing.
I’ve confessed before, but it’s worth mentioning just one more time…I don’t like cleaning the bathroom. It’s the one room of the house that strikes pure terror in my obsessive compulsive heart. Maybe it’s the fact that we have a wonderful four year-old boy living under our roof (we shall leave it at that…I think you get the point). Or the fact that our tub seems to throw mildew parties on a weekly basis and leaves all the evidence behind for me to clean up. Ah, yes. The bathroom.
Whatever the cause of my bathroom cleaning reservations may be, the dirty job must be done quite regularly in order to maintain a sense of cleanliness for the good of all.
Before having kids the dirty job could easily be accomplished with a washcloth and some water. I know, probably not the best cleaning method, but the bathroom was rarely used when both Dustin and I worked outside the home. Not to blame the kids (because I love my kids and don’t want them to have adult therapy sessions because of mommy’s bathroom issues), but well…the evidence is clear. The bathroom cleaning job is a bit more necessary during this season of life.
In my quest for a clean(er) bathroom, I created a powerful bathroom cleaner that works against even the most stubborn odors and dirt. That cleaner (which is amazing and you really need to check out!) is the go-to homemade solution for my weekly appointment in the bathroom. There are times when the job gets really dirty! So dirty I need a bit more help than my trusty homemade squirt bottle can provide. It’s in those moments that I turn to soft scrub.”
