A baking soda/soap mixture is a gentle natural cleaner.

Abrasive commercial powders and liquids can make short work of the bathtub ring, but their harsh chemicals can scour the environment. Our version uses nontoxic ingredients, leaving your bathroom clean and your conscience clear.

Silky Scrub

1 cup baking soda
1/2 cup (approximately) castile liquid soap
5 to 10 drops antibacterial essential oil, such as lavender, tea tree or rosemary (optional)

1. Pour baking soda into a medium-size mixing bowl.

2. Add soap a little at a time, stirring continuously. Stop adding after your mixture has begun to resemble frosting.

3. Mix in drops of essential oil, if using.
