Homemade cleaning paste

This paste is amazing! It works like gumption – rub a bit onto a damp cloth and use to clean sinks, tiles, baths, bench-tops, and more! (wipe off with a second cloth if needed).

Our (very old) kitchen sink has never been so shiny! All the ingredients, including tins for storage, and plastic-free cloths to wipe with, are available here in the Living Lightly Home shop.

  • 1/3 cup bicarb soda
  • 1/3 cup washing soda
  • 2 tablespoons castile soap
  • 15 drops of your favourite essential oil – optional (if using unscented castile soap)
  • Water
Sift bicarb soda and washing soda into a bowl. Add castile soap and essential oils (if using). Add a little water at a time as you’re mixing, until you get the desired paste consistency. Use a stick blender to mix it up well. Store in an air-tight container (this recipe makes just the right quantity to store in our tins).
