How To Make The Epsom Salt Scrub
Put all of the ingredients together in a mixing bowl and blend them together well. Don’t use an electric mixer as you don’t want to break up the salt or baking soda granules, they assist with scouring.
To remove hard water stains, cover the stain in the mixture and then srub the stain gently with a soft scouring pad or a brush. Allow the salts to do the work, you don’t need to apply too much pressure to work the stain away. Within a few seconds you should already see a significant reduction in the size of the stain and it should be completely gone in a minute or so.
For harder stains, scrub for a few seconds and then allow the mixture to sit on the stain for two to five minutes before scrubbing again. This allows some time for the salts to work on the stain.
