The great thing about making your own cleaning products is that you quickly learn what does and doesn’t work together.
I absolutely love my rosemary sink cleaner. So, when I needed a scrub for my bath and shower I knew that I could slightly alter it and get a scrub that would really work.
For this, you need something with a little abrasion to really get it clean. I started with the baking soda and salt combo that I use on the sink cleaner and added a little water, dish soap, and lemon essential oil to make a fantastic smelling and cleaning homemade soft scrub.
Not only is this homemade soft scrub way cheaper than buying a store-bought scrub, but it also is free from all the bleach and chemicals.
You can easily whip this up at home in a few minutes and save yourself some money.

Homemade Soft Scrub
To make this homemade soft scrub you need baking soda, salt, dish soap, and water.
If you want it to have a smell you will also need some essential oils.
Usually, I like to use a lemon essential oil because of the nice scent it leaves behind.
I am not brand picky with essential oils, but I do love Fabulous Frannie essential oils. I’ve noticed that they are just as good as the more expensive brands but cost much less.
You can head over here to grab one of their gift sets or just buy one bottle. They are usually less than $5 a bottle.
Start by mixing baking soda, salt, dish soap, and water together in a bowl.
The dish soap will make the mixture foam a little so stir slowly.
Next, add about 15-20 drops of lemon essential oil. You can add a little more or less depending on how strong you want the scent.
Storing and Using The Cleaner
To store you can either store in a jar or in a squeezable container. You can use an old soap bottle or I love these bottles here for cleaning products if you want a squeezable container.
To use, just squirt out on the shower or sink or apply to a microfiber cloth.
Next, scrub for a minute or two with a microfiber cloth.
Wash the homemade soft scrub away with water. Make sure you get 100% of the DIY soft scrub removed especially in a shower or bathtub. The soap in the mix could cause the floor to become slick.
This homemade soft scrub will leave all the surfaces shiny and clean.
If you are concerned about it being too abrasive, you can leave out the salt.
