DIY Bathroom Scrub Recipe

By Savvybrown @savvybrownblog

I adapted this recipe from Crunchy Betty and I love it! It cleans everything in my bathroom and in other parts of he house as well, and is so cheap to make.

DIY Bathroom Scrub Recipe


  • 1/4 c. baking soda
  • 1/4 c. washing soda
  • 1/4 c. liquid castile soap
  • 1 capful of hydrogen peroxide
  • 2 Tbsp. white vinegar
  • 25 drops lemon balm*
  • 10 drops peppermint essential oil*
  • 1/4 c. Water


Pour all dry ingredients into a wide-mouth glass jar. (I find that a salsa jar usually works best for this). Next add the essential oils and mix until well blended. (The mixture will be a bit crumbly at this point). Then add the vinegar and water and mix the ingredients until creamy. The vinegar will react with the baking soda and fizz a bit, but it’s completely harmless.

How to Use:

Scoop out a tablespoon of the cream and scrub on tile with a wet a Skoy cloth or microfiber cloth. Rinse with another wet cloth, and wipe dry. I use this on my shower tile, in the fiberglass tub, the porcelain sink and the marble countertop. I only need a scoop for the sink 2 for the shower and three for the tub. It works great o the soap scum on my glass shower door along with my Glass Cleaner . I also use it to clean the toilet bowl. A little goes a long way.

Try it out, and let me know how you like it!

Thank you to Crunchy Betty for the original recipe.
