Green cleaner - tub scrub

In our home we don't use store-bought cleaners (however, sometimes we have to give in for certain jobs but very rarely). Vinegar is pretty much the main ingredient for most of my cleaning supplies.

Glass cleaner - club soda most of the time or alcohol and vinegar.
Toilet bowl cleaner - white vinegar.
Tub and tile scrub - baking soda, vinegar, water and I put in Hemp peppermint pure castile soap and it has a wonderful minty smell. This scrub works wonders. I would never go back to store-bought.

Happy cleaning everyone !

Gotta try that tub scrub recipe; I just purchased the new president's choice green multi-purpose cleaning putty, but it doesn't seem to be doing as good a job as the cleaner I used to use -- ecover cream scrub (all natural ingredients).

Colleen - try it, you should like the results. And with the mint oil, it smells soooooooo good afterwards (plus the shinny bathtub is a nice reward).

is there a recipe for the tub scrub? I'm almost entirely green, but nothing works like comet for the tubbie. Isn't crock pot chili the best?!
