Magic Pixie Dust

Baking Soda AKA Magic Pixie Dust really is the best cleaning product and is wonderful to use when you have tough stains to remove. I make a solution of baking soda and castile soap (50/50) with a bit of water.

  I make a thick paste and rub it into stained and dirty fabric and surfaces with my fingers, leave it for five minutes and then scrub with a hard bristle brush. Then you simply hose down (or machine wash) and sun dry.

  I use this very same solution to clean my bathroom, the kitchen sink, to take dirty fingerprints off paint - you name it. The great thing about it is that I never worry about the kids getting into my stash of cleaning products. Baking soda is a cooking ingredient, and the Castille Soap* is what we have in our bathroom!

  *In earlier centuries, an all-vegetable based soap was made in the Castile region of Spain from local olive oil. By the turn of this last century, “Castile” had come to mean any vegetable oil-based soap, versus animal (tallow) fat-based soap. Castile Soaps are a pure and simple liquid soap, not a complex blend of detergents. Castile Soaps do not contain any synthetic foaming agents or detergents. Melrose castile soap now comes with a pump that foams so the kids love it. You will find it at your local health food shop
