DIY: Essential Soft Scrub Recipe

This diy was originally featured in the Spring 2014 edition of Living magazine.

“I love cleaning with natural products. This soft scrub recipe is one of my absolute favorite natural cleaning recipes. I coat my kitchen sink with a little bit, let it sit for 10 minutes, and gently scrub it clean. It can be used in so many other places too. Happy cleaning!” —Paulette Preeshl-Shipp
