Who likes a sparkly clean bathroom without a lot of effort to get it looking that way? I can’t say the bathroom is my favorite area to clean, but I do love when it shines. I have had some cleaners already that when I sprayed them in the tub and shower the smell was that strong it burned my throat just breathing while in the same room. When reader Kay sent me this tub and shower cleaner recipe, I knew I had to try it as it only took two common ingredients and I knew the fumes from it wouldn’t nearly kill me. I mixed a batch up and instantly fell in love with it. My tub, shower and vanity top are now as shiny and new looking as the day they were installed! Also, be sure to check out my very easy Streak Free Glass Cleaner recipe for use on bathroom mirrors, windows and more.
There are no harsh chemical smells while cleaning with this recipe and the color in it lets you know exactly where you sprayed and cleaned. Soap scum is gone without any vigorous scrubbing and you are left with a beautiful shiny, sparkling bathroom.
How to Make Tub and Shower Cleaner
12 ounces white vinegar
12 ounces liquid, blue dawn detergent As you can see from the picture I didn’t have blue Dawn, I used Gain instead.
1. Heat vinegar in microwave until hot and pour into squirt bottle.
2. Add the Dawn soap. Put the lid on and gently shake to incorporate.
3. You now have a powerful cleaning product that will melt soap scum and tub and shower buildup, clean sinks, appliances and just about anything. Just spray it on, scrub, rinse and be amazed. For tough soap scum build-up, spray the mixture on and allow it to sit as long as overnight. Then, scrub and rinse.
