  • Combine baking soda and cream of tartar in a small bowl.
  • Mix soap and water together in a glass, then slowly pour into the bowl.
  • Stir until mixture forms a paste.
  • Add essential oil and stir.
  • Add more water, a little at a time, as needed to form a paste.
  • Store in an airtight container.


If you plan on storing some of this cleaning paste for future use, make sure to keep it in a very air tight container so it doesn't dry out.
You also might wish to leave some air space at the top in case it does dry, since that will cause it to expand. It's no fun having a container break--especially if you use a glass one!
