Lemon and Clove Nightly Sink Scrub via Clean Mama

Today I’m sharing one of my most-used and favorite recipes – Lemon + Clove Nightly Sink Scrub.  I use this nightly as part of my ‘cleaning up the kitchen’ routine.  (Go to this post to see my favorite products to DIY your cleaners.)

You’ll love this super simple concoction for Lemon + Clove Nightly Sink Scrub from The Organically Clean Home - it smells divine and is a great way to end the mountain of dishes accomplished.  You’ll love how the recipes are organized.  Each recipe has clear (easy and quick) instructions and a lot of the recipes have other tips and tricks included as well.  Many recipes have variations so you’ll see unscented versions as well as other scent combinations to try.

Lemon & Clove Nightly Sink Scrub Ingredients via Clean Mama

Gather your simple ingredients (this recipe can easily be cut in half if you don’t want to mix up a whole batch).

  • 2 cups baking soda
  • 10 drops lemon essential oil
  • 10 drops clove essential oil
  • castile soap (or dish soap) (this is not added to the baking soda until it’s used – keep reading!)
  • container with a shaker top – I used a Ball canning jar (anniversary edition), cut cardstock for the top (instead of the metal lid and punched 4 holes with a standard hole puncher.

I keep this jar under the kitchen sink and it doubles as an air freshener/odor absorber as well – there’s another way to use it in the book too.

See how easy it is to mix up and use…

    I can’t wait to get my book tomorrow!!!

  2. I just preordered your book, can’t wait to get it. Fortunately I have Amazon prime so it will be here pretty quick. It will be perfect timing as I haven’t started spring cleaning since it is still cold here and we had snow yesterday. I can’t get into the deep cleaning without being able to get the windows open.

  3. I’m ordering the book now! Can you tell me where you buy your oils……on line…in a store??

    Thanks!

    • I buy my oils from doTERRA but you can also find them at your local health food store, on Amazon, and another favorite brand of mine is Beeyoutiful.
      xo, becky

    Wow! You use DoTerra oils! Love love love them! I think i need to order your book!

  5. Goodness! This would have been perfect for last night! It looks like I may have to pick up the ingredients I don’t have for this…

    I am getting your book. Love this. One question, though. Can this mixture be used on black cast iron sinks?

  7. LOVE this!! I’ve been using Bar Keepers Friend for years for my sink and not really sure it’s not harmful. I’m definitely trying this! What a wonderful idea to use cardstock and punch holes in it!!

  8. Becky, I enjoy your blog, but I find myself accessing it most often on my mobile device (often via Pinterest) just wondered if you’d considered adding a mobile version. It would load faster and be more user-friendly for us mobile readers! Thanks for a great resource.

  9. Hi Becky! Congratulations on your book! I would love to swap all my cleaning supplies to your organic ones. But I’m still on the hunt for ingredients like backing soda (I have only ever seen backing powder here in Switzerland), or what is Borax? But I will have to try your bathroom disinfectant spray. This seemed easy enough, with ingredients I know. :-) Tina

  10. I understand that it’s better for the environment but is it really more cost-effective to make your own cleaners or is it mainly just a sense of creative satisfaction that drives your concoctions? Anyways, congrats on your book, you’ve been a nice resource for me and my cleaning business.

    • Hi Vanessa!
      It is much more cost effective – the products are concentrated and will last for a long time :)
      xo, Becky

    I love the canning jar idea so much that I want to copy it exactly! Is that ok? haha. What size canning jar did you use and where did you get them?

  12. What a great idea. I used Young Living Essential Oils for mine and it worked beautifully!! Thanks for the tip!

  13. I just made this sink scrub!! Works wonderfully and smells heavenly! I didn’t have clove oil, so I used “germ fighter” from plant therapy. It has clove in it.thank you for this recipe!!
