What Is Scouring Powder?


Scouring powder is a commercial or homemade cleaning mixture that makes a suitable cleaner for just about any surface in a home or outdoors. Homemade applications are commonly made by combining, salt, borax cleaner and baking soda.

It is a powdered and abrasive cleaner that can be used for cleaning bathtubs, tiles, sinks and metal surfaces in kitchens, bathrooms or elsewhere. It works when attempting to remove stains and grease from hard surfaces, and works in absorbing moisture as well. Scouring powder is also effective in giving a whitening effect to old surfaces, especially porcelain and metals like copper, brass and steel.
