Ecological DIY Scrubbing Cleansers

3. DIY antibacterial scrubbing cleanser: Thank you to Jill from One Good Thing for posting this recipe. This DIY scrubbing cleanser is similar in ingredients to the previous two recipes, but it includes tea tree oil, which is a natural anti-bacterial and anti-fungal agent. A note: Be careful when using tea tree oil. It can irritate skin if the undiluted oil comes in contact with skin. Its smell is also strong; I advise you to use it for cleaning in diluted form only. Just a couple drops of tea tree oil is all you need. I have reduced the amount of tea tree oil in the recipe so that the cleanser is less irritating. Mix together three quarters of a cup of baking soda, a quarter of a cup of castile soap, 1 tablespoon water, 5 drops of tea tree oil, and one tablespoon of vinegar to make a paste. Then put it on a sponge and scrub away!
