Scouring powder production is as simple as ABC. It appears to be the simplest chemical production product so far. Scouring powder is a cleansing powder that is formulated to remove difficult and stubborn stains. It is also used in cleaning the surfaces of things such as cookers, pots, toilet, ceramics, tiles, bath tubs, stoves, enamel and aluminium.

Other things are; grease remover, germs killer etc. It can be produced with chemicals as well as with natural products. In this post you shall discover how to produce in both ways.


Scouring powder can be done commercially in a classic way just like vim. To package them this way you need to use labels or stamped containers. One can quickly package this product for sale with used containers just like some sellers are doing and still sell very well. Those that don’t have label are sold cheaper than others. The most important thing is to produce a quality scouring powder that can wash very well.

Pour the measured salt into the powder in the bowl and stir very well.

Add the detergent into the content and stir properly until they are well mixed.

Package them for use or sale.

You can use anything for your measurement depending on the scale you are producing but the ratio is 3:1:1/2 for detergent, egg-shell powder and salt. The egg-shell can be gotten in a large quantity from hotels, restaurants and roadside indomie vendors.


Start by producing for friends, relatives, colleagues, neighbours etc. Supply to hotels, Institutions, offices etc

Based on the scale you are producing you can choose which portals to advertise you product.

Reduce your price or increase the quantity of your scouring powder in other to compete very well with the existing products in the market …

You can use a small container to package your own and sell at a very low price maybe for #50 in other to get more buyers. I noticed that the people who stand in the market to sell who normally say ‘wash your pot’ sell faster than those selling in the shop.

  1. Thanks Eno Johnson, that helped a lot. I want to go into this scouring powder business because I work in a hotel and can easily get eggshells. I want to ask you if adding charcoal ash to the ingredients can make it better because I have access to a lot of charcoal ash too. I live close to a bakery.

    • Well, there is no harm in trying, just do a little sample to see how it goes. I have never tried that it before so I cant categorically say yes
