Natural Scouring Powders

Natural Scouring Powders
Steel wool may just become your best friend when it comes to cleaning tough stains the natural way with out the use of harsh chemicals. Despite the many other scourers available these days, some of us still like to use the old pads on stubborn stains to baking and cast iron. If you don't use them very often, keep them in a box with some dry baking soda powder and they won't go rusty. 

Stubborn Stains on Countertops
To remove stubborn stains from marble, plastic, or Formica, make a strong paste of baking soda with water. Scour gently and then rinse thoroughly. 

Waste Disposal Units
You can apparently clean waste disposal units out with a mixture of baking soda, lemon juice, and vinegar. I prefer composting my kitchen waste. Also throwing a few slices of lemons into your disposal is very disinfecting and smells fresh and clean.

Cleaning Pans
Soak enameled pans in salt water overnight and boil them with salty water the next day to remove burned-on stains. Don't soak chipped pans or metal ones.
