DIY Powder Cleanser

Deep cleaning doesn't have to mean hours of scrubbing on your hands and knees. This powdered cleanser makes it easy to clean even the grimiest of surfaces with little to no work. Just sprinkle on the surface, walk away for 15–30 minutes, and then wipe clean.

  • 2 cups borax (you can find this next to laundry detergent at your local store)
  • 1 cup baking soda
  • ½ cup citric acid (over by the canning section)
  • ½ cup kosher salt
  • 20 drops Lemon oil
Note: Although borax is natural, it can be toxic when ingested and should be kept away from children and pets. If you are concerned about using borax, you can omit it.

  1. Combine all ingredients into a large bowl and stir until combined.
  2. Store in a large shaker bottle.
  3. To use, dampen surface and sprinkle powder over area you want to clean. Let sit for 15–30 minutes. For an extra cleansing boost, spray distilled vinegar (white vinegar from the store) on powder and wipe clean. The citric acid combined with the vinegar will make it bubble and fizz. 
Tip: Use an old spice or Parmesan cheese shaker as your shaker bottle.
