Cleaning Scrub - for the kitchen and bathroom - NOT your skin
a couple of handfuls of dried citrus peels.
These are a mix of orange, blood orange, lime, lemon and grapefruit
1 cup borax
In a food processor grind the peels. I did it about 1/4 at a time. when they are a good even consistency and don't seem to be getting any smaller it's time to add the borax. Grind some more. The peels tend to grind a bit finer after the borax is added.
Then just store it in a jar or bag. To use sprinkle some on the surface or on a sponge and scrub away. Rinse off or wipe down with a damp towel afterward to remove residue. I love the way it makes the kitchen smell when I use it. When I'm doing the sink I usually leave the strainer in so that I can catch large chunks before they go down the drain. Sometimes I forget and it never seems to harm anything but better safe than sorry.
