  • 1/2 cup baking soda
  • 1/2 cup borax

  • 15 drops grapefruit essential oil or favorite cleaning essential oil
  • 1 lid with holes such as: a mason jar drink top, or a Parmesan cheese topper. Only use this lid when the powder is needed. The top used to store the powder shouldn’t expose the powder to the air.
