To make enough for one cleaning session, you'll need: 60g bicarbonate of soda
; 60ml white vinegar; corse salt; spray bottle.

with two and a half tablespoons of vegetable oil and a gallon of water.
Sift the flour and bicarbonate of soda
over the mixture and mix until evenly combined.

will remove stains and odours, and is a good, gentle scourer.
Mix the flours, bicarbonate of soda
and baking powder in a large bowl.
Sift the flour, salt and bicarbonate of soda
and add to the egg mixture in two batches, mixing thoroughly until a soft dough forms.
