Last week I was thrifting at The Goodwill near Susan's house, which by the way is the best thrift shop where I seem to score the best stuff. I came upon these beauties.
So basically, you mix up 2 cups (one small box) of baking soda with 10 drops of lemon essential oil and 10 drops of clove essential oil. (Remember that essential oil is not the same as fragrance oil.) So I give these three things a good mix up in a Pyrex bowl, of course. Put the mixture into a container with holes in the top. If you don't have a crazy looking ceramic mushroom from the 70's just use a small canning jar and drill or hammer in some nail holes at the top. When you want to clean your sink, nightly hahah..... just wet your sink and then sprinkle this deliciously smelling powder all over. Then take a sponge and wet it and give it a little squirt of your dish washing soap. I use Seventh Generation free and clear so that I am just smelling the lovely mix of lemon and clove. This dish soap is reasonably priced at between $3.50 and $4 a bottle. It also seems to bubble better than many "green" detergents and therefore goes a long way. It takes awhile to get through a bottle.
