Homemade Scouring Powder
I really abhore Ajax and Comet :-P. All that nasty blue-ish residue they leave is icky. I've read a lot of people on the blogosphere who suggested baking soda as a scouring alternative. I tried it and was completely underwhelmed; it just didn't have much scouring power. Then a few months ago I came across this easy recipe on Tammy's Recipes site, and I love it! It works so well, is easy and cheap to make, and doesn't leave that icky blue-ish residue. All you have to do is mix equal parts salt, baking soda, and borax (found in laundry aisle of many grocery stores) in a lidded container for storage. Then just use it as you would a regular scouring powder!
