DIY Grout Cleaner Recipe with Essential Oils
- 1/2 cup baking soda
- 3 tbsp Castile soap
- 10 drops tea tree oil
- 5 drops lavender oil
- 5 drops lemon oil
Set the baking soda in a tiny, 12 ounce glass jar with a lid. Add the essential oils. Pour in the Castile soap. Until it’s a thin glue mix the ingredients well. Be sure to get down to the corners of this jar because the pop will remain dry.
Use a scraper if desired to get all of the ingredients thoroughly mixed. This recipe is a version of a normal shower cleaner recipe. To the grout, apply the glue with toothbrush or a scrub brush.
Let it sit for many minutes. Using the brush scrub along the grout. Go back another time using a brush. After the mix becomes wet, it will begin to foam, bringing dirt with it. Finally, using a moist rag, then wipe the grout and rinse with water.
