Homemade Shower Cleaner

posted by Andrea | 02/1/2012

A few weeks ago, I shared how I keep our showers clean in about 10 minutes a month. I mentioned that although I try to use mostly homemade cleaners in and around our house, I still hadn’t found a great homemade cleaner for the shower.

Well, after that, I got a bunch of emails with different “recipes” for homemade shower cleaner; and although I was skeptical, I decided to try a few of them out.

Anyway, after experimenting these past 2 weeks (yes, our shower is now extremely clean) I’ve picked my favorite… and it’s REALLY simple!! 

Recipe for Homemade Shower Cleaner

Thanks to Anna for sending me this “recipe”!

Step #1: Pour 1-2 c. of white vinegar into a plastic spray bottle

Step #2: Heat it up in the microwave until very warm. {you do NOT need to reheat it every time you want to clean your showers}

Step #3: Pour 1 T. of Dawn dish soap into the spray bottle.

Step #4: Put the top of the spray bottle on and gently shake until they are combined.

That’s it!!

Just 2 simple ingredients and about 5 minutes of your time and you have a very inexpensive, homemade shower cleaner that works wonders on soap scum and smells great too!

NOTE: This cleaner is also great for removing greasy buildup in the kitchen!

Do you have any other great homemade cleaning recipes?

    What is a T? A teaspoon?

    What is a C? A cup?

    Thanks

    in general:
    T. = Tablespoon
    t. = teaspoon
    c. = cup

    I use vinegar and water 1/1 with a squirt of Dawn and 1 tsp of dishwasher rinse agent. I don’t heat the vinegar, and the rinse agent makes the rinse water just sheet off the surface. For maintenance it works great.

    Andrea, did you have any trouble with the spray bottle clogging?

    Hey Susie — no I’ve personally never had trouble with it clogging — I’m wondering if you could run some hot tap water through the sprayer to “clean it out”? Sorry, not sure on that one!

    Nope. I used Seventh Generation free ‘n clear, (’cause i have sensitive skin and don’t really like fragrance) and it worked fine.
