DIY: Another Recipe for Soft Scrub

Several months ago we shared a recipe for making your own natural soft scrub, but today we wanted to share an alternative recipe for soft scrub just in case you find yourself without ingredients in our first recipe (we don’t always have pure aspirin on hand…).


  • 3/4 cup baking soda
  • 1/4 cup castile soap (for bathrooms we love Dr. Bronner’s Peppermint or Citrus scents)
  • 5 drops of tea tree oil
  • 1 tbsp. water
  • 1 tbsp. distilled white vinegar
  • 1 old shampoo or squeeze bottle


  1. Combine the baking soda and castile soap in the old (but clean) shampoo bottle or a new sealable squeeze bottle.
  2. Add the water and tea tree oil, place the lid on the bottle and shake to combine.
  3. Lastly add the vinegar, stir or shake to combine into a smooth creamy paste.
  4. Squeeze your new soft scrub onto a sponge and use to clean your tub, floors, or toilet.

To use the soft scrub on your toilet simply squeeze some in the bowl and use a toilet brush to scrub away dirt. The tea tree oil helps to kill and prevent bacteria! Rejoice in the simplicity of cleaning your bathroom without chemicals!
