DIY Sink Cleaner
To make this DIY sink cleaner you will need a few items. Most of them you probably have around the house already.
This homemade kitchen sink cleaner works great on stainless steel sinks, porcelain, or cast iron.
You will need:
I use a microfiber cloth to scrub the sink clean but you can also use a brush if you prefer.
Check out how I use this natural kitchen sink cleaner in the video below.
To make the rosemary sink cleaner start by adding about two cups of baking soda to a canning jar. Then add two tablespoons of salt.
Both the baking soda and salt are abrasive to help clean and remove hard water stains, rust, and grime.
If you are concerned about scratching your sink you can also use just baking soda.
Finally, I add about 15-20 drops of Rosemary essential oil. You can add any scent you like, I just love the smell of Rosemary. Lemon is another popular scent to use for a DIY sink scrub.
Then add a lid to your jar, I am in love with these Ball Shaker Lids. They are kind of hard to find on Amazon, but I picked up two for $1.98 at Meijer. You can buy these lids which are very similar on Amazon.
They just screw right onto the canning jar and turn it into a shaker.
Using The DIY Sink Cleaner
To get started using the sink cleaner begin by rinsing your sink with hot water.
Next, just shake the mixture up and sprinkle some in your sink basin. Don't forget to sprinkle a little around the garbage disposal or sink drain.
