Do It Yourself: Awesome Homemade Tub and Shower Cleaner
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.
Over time I had some cleaners 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 took only took two common ingredients that I already have on hand! I also knew that with this recipe there wouldn’t be fumes that would make breathing difficult.
On bathroom cleaning day I mixed up a batch of this cleaner, and with just one use I was instantly in love. My tub, shower and vanity top all became as shiny and new looking as the day they were on the day of installation and with any nasty strong chemical smells.
What I really loved about this shower cleaner is that the color in it shows you exactly where you have sprayed and cleaned as you go along. Another excellent thing about this product is there is no extra scrubbing. This cleaner just attacked any scum, and all I needed to do was wipe away to reveal a sparkling clean 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 above I didn’t have blue Dawn when I mixed up my recipe but instead I used Gain soap.
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.
