Make-it Monday: DIY Soft Scrub

I really had my doubts when I read that I could make a homemade version of soft scrub. But my sink needed a good deep cleaning so I thought it couldn’t hurt to try. Wow. I watched in disbelief as my sink came clean and I wondered why I’d been exposing myself to expensive chemicals …
