Here is a great solution to a helping clean tough grime without strong chemical odors and is not going to scratch soft surfaces like your stove top or bathroom sink. This do-it-yourself soft scrub cleaner is a great cleaning solution! Cupcakes and Crinoline shared this recipe on Pinterest and I am so glad they did!
How to Make Your Own Soft Scrub Cleaner
Mix 1/4 cup of baking soda with a tablespoon of dish soap. Then add enough vinegar to make a paste. Remember the science-fair volcano though! Vinegar plus Baking Soda equals foam. So don’t put too much vinegar like I did. But if you do, just add a little more baking soda to thicken it back up. It should be ready to use when it is a thick paste like you can see in the image above.
Does this Pinterest Cleaning Recipe Work?
Yes! I had a pot of chocolate frosting boil over on my stove top. It was an ugly mess. I used this Soft Scrub Cleaner recipe along with a non-scratch sponge and it cleaned it really well. The baking soda acted as a soft exfoliate against the baked on chocolate and sugar. However, it did require a good thorough rinse to clean up all of the cleaner. I have a black stove and it left cloudy streaks. But rinsing it well and drying with a dry cloth made my stove top shine.
I give this a PinProvedIt stamp of approval!
