Homemade "Comet" (non-abrasive cleaner)
I hope you're in the mood to clean your bathroom today! As promised, here is another one of the easy "recipes" I learned to make at the natural cleaner workshop I went to a couple of weeks ago. This recipe involves only two ingredients, one of which I know you have on hand! If you haven't bough borax yet, I would encourage you to do so. Borax is an amazing cleaner that oxidizes stains. You should be able to find it somewhere in the laundry aisle. This is a non-abrasive cleaner and works wonderfully on tubs, sinks, tiles, toilets, stainless steel, ect... The gal, Mary, who taught the class said she has extremely hard water and said this stuff does the trick.
Homemade "Comet" Natural Cleaning Recipe:
1 cup Baking Soda
1/4 cup Borax
Mix together and store in a sugar shaker for easier sprinkling. How's that for easy? Hope you are now motivated go clean your bathroom! I better take my own advice and start on my tub today. My next cleaning post will be on how to make your own dishwasher soap. So stay tuned...
Have an awesome day!
Update: I just cleaned my tub and I had some really tough hard water stains that came out. I wetted the area down, sprinkled it with the "comet" mixture and let it sit for 10 minutes. I came back and using a Scotch pad and some elbow grease, I was able to get it all off. My tub has never looked this good! I also used it on my plastic sink and the chrome in my sink. Worked great!
