I hate cleaning the shower in my master bathroom. I have tried many different cleaning products, and most of them contain harsh chemicals. When I saw this article claiming the results of this magic homemade shower and tub cleaner, I knew I had to give it a try.
The great thing about this DIY cleaner is that it is non-toxic, and made from only two ingredients: white vinegar and blue Dawn dishwashing liquid.
You will need to have an empty spray bottle to make the cleaning solution in. You can get an empty spray bottle at the Dollar Store. Walmart also has them for about $1.
The original recipe calls for 12 oz. white vinegar, and 12 oz. Dawn dish soap. You can use any amount you want to, as long as you use the same amount for both ingredients.
Heat the vinegar in the microwave until it is hot. Using a funnel, pour the vinegar into the spray bottle. Pour in the Dawn dishwashing liquid.
You are now ready to use your miracle bathtub and shower cleaner. One thing you want to keep in mind when you are spraying this stuff is that a little is better than a lot. If you spray too much, you are going to end up with a lot of soap to wash off.
What I found worked best was to spray the cleaner on, scrub it in a little, rinse it off, and then wipe it down with a dry towel.
What really impressed me about this cleaning solution was the great job it does on faucets and on my glass shower doors. The faucets were absolutely shining. This solution does a great job of removing hard water deposits from your sink, shower, and bathtub faucets. It also does a great job of removing soap scum off of shower doors.
You definitely want to give this one a try. It is very inexpensive, non-toxic, and works great! (It smells great too.)
