Powerful Homemade Shower Cleaner Recipe
Do you put off cleaning your shower until it's looking pretty dirty? You're not alone, most people do. Jillee from One Good Thing By Jillee shares that the shower is her least favourite thing to clean, and understandably so. It can get pretty grimy in there. Especially if you have a plastic shower floor like most of the shower stalls have. Dirt and grime quickly accumulate in the pores of the plastic, and sometimes it can be hard to remove the stains after they'be been there for a while. Sometimes it could be hard water mixed with soap scum which could be hard to remove. Good thing Jillee has some great cleaning tips to share with us and a homemade shower cleaner made with all natural cleaners. All you'll need is some dish soap and vinegar which you might even have on hand in your home already. Just use an empty spray bottle and then take about a cup of vinegar or more if you have a larger spray bottle and put it in a microwaveable dish. Then put it in the oven until it's hot. Then pour the hot vinegar into your spray bottle. Follow up by putting the same amount of dish soap into the spray bottle as you did vinegar, so there are equal parts vinegar and dish soap. Then gently shake the ingredients in the spray bottle to mix them well.
Then, go into your bathroom and spray the bottom of the shower with the natural cleaners. Spray the area really well to saturate. Then allow the natural cleaners to work on loosening the hard water stains, grime and scum. The natural acids in the white distilled vinegar will help to break down oils and hard water deposits. Then the dish soap will also work hard to dissolve the grease and grime. Both of the cleaners will disinfect the area as well which is always great for the shower. Let it all sit on the surface for at least a half an hour to an hour or longer if you have more time. When time is up, come back with a scrubbing pad or a cleaning brush and start scrubbing away. You will be surprised by how quickly the dirt and stains come off. When you're all done scrubbing, just rinse with hot water to remove the soap and vinegar and your shower will look as good as new. A word of caution though, even though vinegar is a non-toxic all natural cleaner, it has a very potent odour. So when you're using this cleaner make sure you open a window and turn on your bathroom fan to ventilate the area. The scent of vinegar goes away really quickly though, so don't worry about your bathroom always smelling that way.
Since the dish soap makes the cleaner a bit thicker, it sticks to walls and tiles better too making it easier to use on shower tiles and glass. You could also use this cleaner in your toilet to get rid of stains and hard water deposits. Just allow it to sit for an hour or more so it can really work on breaking down the deposits. Use it in your bathroom sink as well and in your bathtub too. Another great natural cleaner you can use for your shower and bathtub is baking soda and water mixed into a paste. Then spread the paste all over the tiles and tub or the glass and plastic areas if you have a shower stall. Allow the cleaners to sit for a while and then come back and scrub and rinse away the cleaners. Try this and other cleaning tips from One Good Thing By Jillee.***
