Recipe by Evamyth

An ecologically sound alternative to SoftScrub. I found this recipe in a booklet of eco-friendly housekeeping and gardening put out by my municipality.

Yeah... this recipe pretty much rules. Everyone who ever uses our eco-friendly cream cleanser goes on about how well it works. For the record, we use Seventh Generation Dish Liquid and Tide Free as the 'bath soap' and 'laundry detergent'.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 60 ml baking soda
  • 30 ml borax
  • 30 ml laundry detergent
  • liquid bath soap


  1. Mix the powders with enough liquid soap to make a thick, creamy paste.
  2. Use as you would any cream cleanser (SoftScrub).
