DIY: Powder Cleanser
with Lemon Essential Oil
Deep cleaning doesn't have to mean hours of scrubbing on your hands and knees. This powdered cleanser makes it easy to clean even the grimiest of surfaces with little to no work. Just sprinkle on the surface, walk away for 15-30 minutes, and then wipe clean. It's that easy!
2 cups borax
1 cup baking soda
½ cup citric acid
½ cup kosher salt
20 drops Lemon essential oil
Note: Although borax is natural, it can be toxic when ingested and should be kept away from children and pets. If you are concerned about using borax, you can omit it.
Combine all ingredients into a large bowl and stir until combined.
Store in a large shaker bottle.
To use, dampen surface and sprinkle powder over area you want to clean.
Let sit for 15-30 minutes. For an extra cleansing boost, spray distilled vinegar on powder and wipe clean.
Tip: Use an old spice or Parmesan cheese shaker as your shaker bottle.
Enjoy your new sparkly-clean surface.
