Cleaning with Herbs: Grapefruit Abrasive Cleaner

This Grapefruit Abrasive Cleaner will clean your sink right up, and leave a fresh scent.

  • A delicious citrusy scent will linger in your kitchen after using this Grapefruit Abrasive Cleaner.

This Grapefruit Abrasive Cleaner gets its punch from finely ground pumice, a volcanic rock dust. It’s comparable to a soft scrub and can be used for tubs, sinks, tiles and even hardworking hands that have been stained with grease. The lingering scent is pungent and fresh. Avoid using this on fiberglass fixtures. Instead, try this Creamy Nonabrasive Cleaner for acrylic and fiberglass surfaces.

• 1 cup fine-grade pumice
• 1/2 cup clay powder
• 2 tablespoons grapefruit essential oil
• 1/4 cup baking soda
• 1/2 cup boiling water (or enough to make a thick paste)

1. Mix all ingredients together and stir. Store in a labeled airtight container.

2. To use: Apply gently with a damp sponge or cloth and scrub.
