  • I'm sorry but this scrub will last approximately 1 week if kept in the fridge. You have put fruit in this and that's a recipe that without a preservative will grow all sorts of nasty bacteria. Do yourselves a favor and avoid making this.

  • Do you think that the cranberries are essential? Or just for color? Can't find any cranberries in the off season.

    • Even over by raisins and stuff? I think you could do without or with something else
