My mom sent me a link to a homemade grapefruit peel scouring powder. I didn't have grapefruit but I do have a ton of oranges right now. So, I thought I'd put my own spin on it.
The link to the original is on Crunchy Betty's site which you can check out here - http://www.crunchybetty.com/the-great-grapefruit-scouring-scrub

Here is my stab at a scouring powder -
|1) Cut up the peel of two oranges - let dry until brittle|
|2) It will take a day or two to let the peel dry. |
When done it will look something like this....
|3) Grind peel in your coffee grinder |
or food processor until soft and powdery.
|4) Mix 1/3 cup each of 1) orange peel,|
2) borax, 3) baking soda and 4) washing soda
|5) Poke holes in a canning jar lid to make a shaker top|
|6) I soaked my sink in coffee to get it really stained up|
