DIY scrubbing paste

I made a DIY scrubbing powder for difficult cleaning and dishwashing after reading about them online. It is 50% bicarb, 50% salt + I mixed in few drops of orange and eucalyptus essential oil to make it smell nice. I also read somewhere that the orange helps to cut through grease 🍊🌿 Will let you know whether it works next time I have something like burnt roasting tray to wash-up! I think all you do is sprinkle over some of the powder, add water, then scrub. Normally I would just use washing-up liquid + a scourer before to clean something like that, but the DIY washing-up liquids I’ve switched to are a bit gentler so felt like I needed something extra for more difficult cleaning✨
