Perfect for hard to scrub messes.
For this recipe, I make it one batch at a time. The reason for this is because hot water works best, and you normally don’t need a heavy-duty cleaner for everyday messes.
Mix the below ingredients, you can change the quantities to suit your needs.
- 1-3 lime fruits
Roll fruit on counter to break up flesh on inside, or pop in the microwave for 10-15 seconds to get the juices flowing.
Cut 4 ways and squeeze juice into jar/container. Next grate the fruit zest into the container.
Note: I normally do this step once or twice a month and do about 10-15 fruits so that way I constantly have access to lime, lemon and orange juice and zest for household products or DIY face and body scrubs.
- 1/2 cup vinegar
- 1/2 cups hot water
These measurements are really up to you, depending on how bad the mess is add more vinegar, less water or boil the water beforehand to really loosen up the grime.
- Pinch-1/4 cup of sea salt
The sea salt really helps to break up the mess, and doesn’t dissolve as quickly as sugar. I say a pinch to quarter cup because this is really up to you, you don’t have to use any if you don’t want.
You can change this recipe around to fit your needs, if you want more longevity, omit the water and add vinegar, or buy distilled water and leave the salt out until right before you use it to get more grittiness.
You can also use lemon, orange, grapefruit or any other citrus fruit in place of the lime.
