DIY Sudsy Lemon Soap Recipe

Lemon is one of my favorite scents. It’s fresh, clean, crisp, and energizing. When I was asked to choose a project to make with Palmolive, I went straight for the Sudsy Lemon Soap. This post is sponsored by Lunchbox, but all opinions are my own.

Now that we have three dogs, keeping the house smelling fresh is even more challenging. Plus, with Franklin being a puppy, we are still cleaning up little messes all the time. I had never thought to use Palmolive for anything other than washing the dishes, but the Sudsy Lemon Soap sure is proving that thought wrong. Palmolive at CVS for $0.74 with Coupon

This was a fun mixture and the smell was just amazing. The lemon scent filled the house and smelled so wonderful. I actually just left it sit open for a while to enjoy the lemony loveliness.

After a while I added some water to increase the mixture and wiped down the whole bathroom. Just that little bit of baking soda seemed to really enhance the scrubbing power of the Palmolive. Plus, with the lemon, it just created a fresh blast throughout the house. I love it.
