I know you’ve seen it all over Pinterest, perhaps you’ve might’ve heard of it thru a family member or a friend, but let me share with you how I developed a love relationship with the Best Shower Cleaner Ever!
I used to be a chemical junkie, Clorox and any other full of chemicals multipurpose cleaner were my best friends,my cabinet underneath the sink was full of Windex, Clorox Wipes, Pine sol, Scrubbing bubbles, and multiple spray bottles for different cleaning needs.
Even with all these cleaning supplies, there was this one area I was always struggling with, the bathrooms. I always love the feeling of taking a shower or bath in a clean bathroom. I always say, if I don’t have time to clean my whole house I should at least have my bathrooms and kitchen clean, I find those to be the most important areas for a clean house.
I have an old regular fiberglass tub in the common area bathroom and no matter how much I’ve cleaned it with my regular chemically added products, it still looked stained and dirty looking. I had a family member visiting and to my embarrassment, she also tried to clean it with some Clorox bleach without any success before taking a bath because she thought the tub was dirty, little that she knew I was already struggling to get the tub back to its natural white clean condition.
One time I’ve decided to browse thru Pinterest on how to clean my bathtub and to my surprise there was a lot of homemade DIY options, it was great since I already had the ingredients at home so I’ve decided to give it a try, after all, I had already tried every other product out there and I was relentless in bringing my bathtub back to life, especially after facing the embarrassment of my family member trying to clean it as well. Let me tell you after using this combination, not only I found it to be super easy to make, but also having the ability to clean something without worrying about bleaching my clothes or breathing the fumes from the chemicals. This cleaner became my best friend because it brought my old stained bath tub back to its white clean look without too much of a hassle.
Anyway, here is what you need to create the Best Shower/ Bathtub cleaner ever.
All you need is Dawn Dish Soap and White Distilled Vinegar. Isn’t that great?! super economical and easy to find.
- 1/2 cup of white distilled vinegar,
- 1/2 cup of blue dawn dish detergent
- a sponge or scrubber
Warm the vinegar in the microwave for about 90 seconds, then mix with it with Dawn dish soap in a spray bottle. Spray on your shower or tub, let it sit for about 10-15 minutes, then take your little sponge or scrubber and scrub it off, after spraying this mixture on your tub, you will realize it won’t take much effort on the scrubbing part. That’s it!!! Easy enough. This combination is also amazing to remove soap scum from shower doors.
Ever since I’ve tried this combination I’ve kissed all my chemical products goodbye!! I am encouraging you to try too! Eco-friendly, no more worrying about the chemical smell or the stains on your clothes and very easy on your pocket!
