What is the best cleaning ingredient?

Pretty amazing stuff! When used as a homemade cleaner, baking soda absorbs odors and scrubs away stains due to its abrasive properties.

How do you make a soft scrub with bleach?

You’ll use approximately 1/2 T bleach with this recipe – you can just stir it in. I would also remove the essential oil unless there’s one you know that you like with the bleach smell. But I feel like the bleach would overwhelm the scent anway.

Is this recipe antibacterial?

It is not. You would have to add bleach to it (see above). Tea tree is also a natural antibacterial if you’d like to add that as your choice for essential oil.

Will this homemade soft scrub recipe scratch glass?

No, it’s a very gentle abrasive. It shouldn’t scratch glass, steel, or ceramic. Having said that, I always recommend doing a test before applying anything new to a surface you haven’t before. Do a small area to make sure!

How do I apply this scrub?

Use a sponge to apply! Let sit, and then you can use a sponge or old toothbrush to scrub into surfaces and clean. Rinse out the sponge and wipe away the cleaner from the surface, then rinse.
