how to make a cream cleanser for cleaning bathrooms and kitchens

Cut Through The Grime With This Home-made Cream Cleanser

An easy to make cream cleanser recipe you can make at home, to help clean the grime in bathrooms and kitchens.

To help remove stubborn grime, dirt and grease in the bathroom and kitchen area, did you know you can properly remove it all safely without using harsh chemicals? And most of the ingredients for this cream cleanser are most likely found in your cupboards at home.

Since the invention of JAX, I have always said cream cleansers are the way to shiny bathrooms and kitchens. The problems is JAX is full of so many nasty ingredients, which may or may not cause me problems later on in life, considering the amount of it I have used in my lifetime.

Never mind, as the saying goes, it’s never too late to revert the damage, but starting now using more ethical and mindful products for cleaning to save not just ourselves, but the planet as well.

This cream cleanser recipe was sourced from Nourish magazine and I love love love it. It’s been a great motivator whilst stuck in lockdown, as it’s given me something to do. Though, part of me would probably prefer to just sit in from of the TV and watch Netflix all day.

I’m trying to waste my days wisely, by getting ahead of spring cleaning whilst the weather is still cool, in the event we come out of lockdown in spring and I can spend my time getting out and about rather than spring cleaning at home when there’s no more lockdown – one can dream. Anyways.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 cup bicarb soda
  • 20 drops off lemon essential oil
  • 10 drops of eucalyptus essential oil
  • 2 drops of tea tree essential oil
  • 3 tbsp pure liquid Castile soap, plus more if needed

Here’s how to make it:

  1. In a bowl, combine the bicarb soda and essential oils.
  2. While stirring, slowly pour in the Castile soup and mix until it becomes a smooth paste.
  3. Transfer to a small airtight jar or similar container to store.
  4. It can dry out over long periods, so if that happens, add more Castile soap and mix.
  5. To use, add a teaspoon or more to a clean cloth, rub the cream over the surface to be cleaned and then rinse or wipe the surface clean.
