Questions about deep cleaning.

I want to try to deep clean my dreads, but I have a couple of questions.  And yes, I've read all of the entries in the memories.

First, is lemon juice vital to the recipe?  Would it do anything differently if I basically used baking soda and salt?

Second, are there any alternatives to tea tree oil?  I have no idea where to get this in my town, but while I'm searching I really feel the need to deep clean.  I want my hair to be clean and soft, and my dreads and roots to be tight, and my scalp to be non-itchy and non-flaky.

Third, specifically about the tea recipe (Lish might want to ignore this one, or at least note that I'm not planning on just using whatever I have in my kitchen - I'm just curious), if you have tea that has peppermint IN it, but it's not solely peppermint, would that make a difference?

And finally, would having beads and wraps and things in my hair make a difference in the process of deep cleaning?

I know I sound completely clueless and ignorant, but I just want to know as much about it as possible, and any alternatives that don't mean I have to go out and buy a bunch of ingredients.  Any information you guys have is appreciated.  Thank you.  <3
