Keeping our doorsteps clean is really important in spiritual work. Often people only cleanse themselves, neglecting their environment, let alone setting up some sort of protection to keep problems from returning right after the cleanse. I’ve discussed some of this in my videos.

One aspect that is often neglected now a days, but was once very common was scrubbing the doorsteps. This was especially important in areas where conjure was very prevalent and you never knew who might have dusted your doorsteps.

Here’s a wash that I’m sharing, that I hope will be of help to some of you

Mix in a bucket of water the following

12 Teaspoons of ammonia – for each of the 12 apostles

3 Pinches of Salt for the Holy Trinity

Garlic Powder – easily available in the spice section of your local grocery store.


Mix this thoroughly with whatever prayers or psalms are your favorite for uncrossing.

I personally also sprinkle powdered brick dust first, then use my scrub brush with this liquid to give the doorsteps a good scrub. You’ll want to skip this recipe if your doorsteps are wood, as the ammonia and salt will eat off varnish or paint (depending on how diluted the wash). Where I’m from, most doorsteps are concrete so this isn’t an issue.

After I’ve given it all a good scrub, I then pour the remaining liquid onto my doorsteps and let the concrete soak it up. This gives some protection, and also removes any bad luck that has found it’s way to your door.
