Lemon Liquid Cleaner

Lemon Liquid Cleaner: This soft-scrub type cleaning liquid works great on porcelain surfaces of any type in the kitchen! Reach for it when you’re looking to do a bit less scrubbing and want the ease of a squeeze bottle. The lemon essential oil cuts through grime like a champ and baking soda helps it along.

• 1¼ cups baking soda
• ¼ cup Sal’s Suds or castile soap
• 2 tablespoons hydrogen peroxide
• 25 drops lemon essential oil

Mix ingredients well in a small bowl. Transfer to a 12- or 16-ounce jar or squeeze bottle, leaving a few inches at the top, as the mixture will expand a bit as it settles together. Keep airtight in a cool, dark place for a few weeks.

To Use: Add some of the cleaning liquid to a soft cloth, sponge, or brush, or squirt it directly onto the surface. Rub in. Let sit for 15–20 minutes. If necessary, scrub again with the cloth, sponge, or brush.
Rinse well.

Extra Tip: Use half a lemon to scrub this mixture into your surface instead of a cloth or rag. The extra lemon juice has wonderful cleaning properties and adds to the lemon-fresh scent.
