We’re a few days into the beginning of spring so I thought I’d bring a little of my Home Ec degree to Sugar and Charm today with a recipe for my favorite baking soda cleaning scrub and DIY scrub shaker to store it in!
It’s a Sweet Orange Lavender scrub that I use more than any cleaning product in our house! I can’t even begin to describe how amazing it smells, especially compared to store-bought scrubs.
DIY Cleaning Shaker
You can also make your own shaker by poking holes in the top of a glass jar with a fitted lid. It works perfectly and it’s easy to use when cleaning.
How to Make a Sweet Orange Lavender Scrub

Add all the ingredients into a glass Ball jar with a fitted lid and shake. Using a hammer and a nail, make holes in the top of the lid.
