Soft Scrub Update
It has been a little over a week since I first made and used my soft scrub. I have learned a few tips when using it. The first thing I learned is I need to make sure I rinse it off well. I think it might be the vegetable glycerin in it. But the next day when I was walking in my bathroom the floor felt sticky. And the toilet seat felt sticky when you sat on it. I have a bad habit of not rinsing off my cleaner well. Even when I bought cleaner my bathroom floor always felt sticky. I just took a wet cloth and wiped down those surfaces again and then it was no longer sticky.
So the other day when I cleaned my bathroom again. Yes!! I cleaned my bathroom two weeks in a row!! That is a record for me. Don't Judge me! I hate cleaning and the bathroom is no exception. And when I was using those toxic cleaners I was lucky to clean it twice a month. I spot cleaned, especially around the toilet (I have 2 boys need I say more) and kept things looking clean. But I only thoroughly cleaned (shower, tub, walls, floor, etc.) a couple times a month. So anyways, when I thoroughly cleaned my bathroom the other day I made sure I rinsed the soft scrub off well. Plus I think I was using way too much. You really don't need a lot of soft scrub. And if you use a sponge it makes it last even longer.
I have been using it to wash off my kitchen counters, my stove top, and I cleaned my fridge with it. Everything looks so clean has the antiseptic properties of the peppermint and as a bonus my house smells like peppermint and not cleaner!! I have not even used a quarter of my soft scrub yet. And I have been cleaning a lot with it. So now that I am have learned how to clean with it and how many things I can clean with the soft scrub. And how long it is actually lasting. I am starting to think it truly is cost effective.
