Do you have a problem with soap scum in the sink in your bathroom or kitchen? A chemical cleaner is likely the first choice for most people, but there are healthier and cheaper options available. Something you may want to do is make a DIY soap scum remover. The process to make a DIY soap scum remover is not that difficult to do. You simply need to blend the ingredients together to make a mixture that you will pour into a spray bottle. This product is just like a tub and shower cleaner, but the recipe uses less soap. You can use any type of spray bottle to apply your DIY soap scum remover. A large bottle can be used or you may want to use a smaller bottle, depending on what you have available. Spray bottles are easy to find at most stores
And that's because it looks like toothpaste coming out of a bottle. The supplies needed for this are a clean 16 oz plastic bottle, ½ cup of hydrogen peroxide, 1 tablespoon of dry yeast, 3 tablespoon of warm water, liquid dish washing soap, food coloring, small cup, safety goggles.

water, 2 tsp. coconut oil, about 15 drops essential oil, and a few drops of food coloring (depending on the color I wanted), ¼ cup Epsom salt, 5 bowls, and molds to put the mixture into. To create the different halves, I took half of each ingredient into separate bowls and added either ¼ cup lime juice or ¼ cup citric acid. First, I combined the baking soda, corn starch, and Epsom salt into a bowl. If I was using the citric acid, I combined that into the same bowl. Next, I combined my water, coconut oil, essential oil (optional), and food coloring (optional) into a different bowl. If I was using the lime juice instead of the citric acid, I would combine it into this bowl. It is very important you keep your wet and dry ingredients separate. Then, I slowly put a few drops of the wet mixture into the dry mixture and stirred. You want to put a few drops, then stir; add a few more, and stir again. You must do this step slowly to prevent any reactions happening between the citric acid and the baking soda. During this step, I discovered that the side with lime juice was much moister than the other side with citric acid. This made it difficult to mold the halves together because a slight reaction was occurring when I put them together. Next, I put the different mixtures into half a mold and stuck the halves together into the freezer for 2 hours. Then, I took the bath bomb and put it into a bowl full of warm water. Finally, I watched the reaction and recorded my
If you have ever stepped into your bath or shower only to realize that you have build up on your tiles and grout, you may have wondered what is the best way to clean your tiles and grout.
Do you have a lot of unsightly weeds that are popping through cracks in the sidewalk or maybe in your driveway? There are many ways to deal with weeds depending on what you prefer. You can easily pull them out or use a weed spray. If you want to save some money, make a homemade weed killer.
Next fill the bucket with the recommended ratio of water and soap. Using hot water will affect the cars wax so be sure to use cool water. Don't use more soap than the instructions say to use, because more soap removes more wax. If possible use less soap to help save your car.
It is important that the soap is designed for a car ‘s finish. Regular dish soap or detergent will not work. These soaps will strip the wax off your car and eventually dull the finish. I recommend Armorall brand soap. I have found that the best kind is called Quick Wash & Wax. This soap not only does a good job cleaning; it also has a wax in the formula that helps to keep your car clean. It repels dirt and doesn’t allow the dirt to stick to the paint. You can purchase this for about five to seven dollars. Now that you have the supplies, make sure you have running water and a water hose. You can use a spray nozzle but it is not crucial; you can do a good job with out it.
I will planning children to make their own soap. Firstly I will invite the children to melt the soap by heating in a saucepan on the stove over medium heat. Once the soap becomes a liquid, have the children remove it from the heat and allow it to cool for about 10 minutes. When the soap is in a liquid state, Children can add 1 teaspoon of peppermint, lavender essential oil or cinnamon for a wonderful scent, or 1 tablespoon of ground oatmeal for a bit of texture or add milk to make the soap smoother. Pour the soap into molds and cover the mold with a towel overnight. Put the mold in the freezer for a few hours the next day, then remove the soap from the mold.
As shown in Table 3.0, it was difficult to stir and combine the shortening and the lard with the sodium hydroxide and glycerol. Though the oil-based soaps were easy to make, they did not yield as much compared to the fat-based soaps. Table 6.0 shows that Soap 3 which was shortening based and Soap 4 which was lard based produced 11.18 g and 11.22 g, respectively. This was a much greater yield than the oil based soaps. Soap 1 which used olive oil yielded 3.154 grams and soap 2 using vegetable oil yielded 1.319 grams. This was something to consider when choosing which starting material to use and depends on whether ease of synthesis or greater yield is more important. The detergent synthesis methods were very similar but method 2 took less steps and was a bit easier than method 1. Table 6.0 shows that detergent 2 had a greater yield, 5.143 grams whereas detergent 1 had a yield of about 4 grams. The lathering test showed that though soaps 3 and 4 produced the most product of the soaps, they did not create many bubbles or a good lather according to Table 7.0. The soaps/detergents that produced the most bubbles were soap 1 which used olive oil followed by detergent 1 and then soap 2
Use SCBEU units at bitumen and oil sand sites to ‘extract and upgrade’ at the site. The SCBEU unit would replace much of the current oil sand solvent extraction washing process and does not require solvent recovery or disposal (4,5,9,10,11,12,25,28). [This case will be developed in this proposal using the Arroyo Grande Bitumen site near Edna, CA. (26,27,28)]
The purpose of this lab was to create soaps and detergents and test their cleaning ability. We created four different soaps and two detergents using different starting materials composed of oils and fats for the soaps and lauryl alcohol and sulfuric acid for the detergents. Soaps are created by a process called saponification, which is the formation of a salt by combing an acid and a base.1 Soap and detergent are effective cleaning agents because they have hydrophilic and hydrophobic ends.1 The hydrophobic ends interact with the dirt and oil while the hydrophilic ends interact with the water molecules effectively washing the dirt and oil away.2 While soaps and detergents are very similar in their cleaning ability, they have a major difference being that soaps are made from natural products and detergents are made from synthetic materials.3 In order to make the soaps, we used four different starting materials including lard, shortening, olive oil, and vegetable oil.
