  • Bathtub and Sink Cleaner – Place 1/2 cup of baking soda and add 20 drops of tea tree essential oil. Shake mixture well. Sprinkle tub or sink with baking soda mixture. Pour several drops of Dawn dishwashing liquid in sink or bathtub and scrub. Rinse well after scrubbing. This works well on ceramic tile also.
