Epsom Salt Scrub for Hard Water Deposits

If you live in a area with hard water, you probably have hard water deposits on everything, including bathtubs, showers and sinks. These deposits make faucets and fixtures an eyesore. We found a solution that works pretty well!

Epsom Salt Scrub uses salt crystals that are just abrasive enough to remove the hard water deposits. Added baking soda, castile soap, and lemon essential oil do the rest of the cleaning.

Instructions:

  1. Fill each Shot Glass about 3/4 full of water. Add desired coloring to each Shot Glass. Stir until combined. Add a drop of essential oil to each Shot Glass. It’s fun to scent the water based on the color, such as using lemon essential oil for yellow water, lavender essential oil for purple water, etc.
  2. Create your design on the paper plate with the glue. Once your design is ready, sprinkle the Epsom Salt over it until the glue is well covered. Shake off the remaining Epsom Salt so your design appears again.
  3. Use the Pipettes to draw up the colored water and color your design.
  4. Get creative, and have fun while enjoying the wonderful scents of essential oils!
