Natural Cleaning Paste

My shower was starting to look a little embarassing.  I was getting lazy and I ran out of my usual norwex cleaning paste so I decided I should really just make my own.  This paste worked very well on the grout with some help of an old toothbrush.  I really should learn to just do this more often but anyhow I thought I would share this cleaner recipe.

  • 1/2 cup baking soda
  • 1/3 cup borax
  • 1/4 cup white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon natural liquid soap (I used my dish soap)
  • 3 drops lemon essential oil (optional)

  1. Combine all ingredients until it resembles a think paste and the bubbles of disappeared from the vinegar reaction.
  2. Use on any area that needs an extra scrub such as sinks, tiles and toilets.

I can't believe I am showing you a before picture of my shower.  I am really quite embarrassed but it does show you how well this stuff works.  



  1. Did the paste last in the container like norwex?

  2. It didn't go bad, if that is what you mean.
