I consider myself pretty good at cleaning the house (after 7 people and two 80 pound dogs) however I am ashamed to admit I am neglectful when it comes to the shower.
Can we say……SOAP SCUM?
Bad on my part!
I’ve always hated cleaning the shower (with glass surround) and never remember to clean it on a regular basis.
I’m lazy and want the cleaner to work for me!
My usual method is to squirt Scrubbing Bubbles all over and just let it drip on down hoping it all washes away the next time someone takes a shower.
Not so good.
Searched the web yesterday and found a homemade recipe to remove the offending soap scum.
And I’m here to tell you…..it works!
With very little effort to boot!
I sprayed the shower down last night and left it.
When I took a shower this morning I took a sponge in with me and wiped everything down with no scrubbing!
All of the soap scum is off!
I promised myself I would do this once a week
Give this a try.
And it works!!
Amazing Scum Removing Cleaner
1/2 c. of Dawn Dishsoap (Original) Don’t waste your time with the girly scented versions!
1/2 c. White Vinegar
1 spray bottle
Before we begin, here’s a safety reminder, be sure to use regular plain DAWN. Do not substitute other brands and do NOT use Dawn with Bleach. It is NEVER EVER EVER Safe to mix bleach & Vinegar together. It creates a Noxious gas that can (& Will) kill someone.
Heat the vinegar until it’s HOT, I simply put mine in a glass pyrex measuring cup and stuck it in the microwave for 1 minute.
Pour it into a clean spray bottle, add the dawn dishsoap, put the cap on and shake very gently to mix. (Or you can mix it right in the pyrex measuring cup and pour it into the bottle)
Spray liberally on the surface you wish to clean, leave it alone to do the work for 20 minutes or so. Or better yet, spray it before you go to work, and wipe it up when you come home. Once it’s had a chance to work it’s magic, wipe it off with a clean rag or sponge and some warm water.
You could technically mix up more than 1 c. at a time, but you want the vinegar to be hot when you mix them and use it, so it’s best to only mix up what you need.
When you spray it on, it applies like a gel, so it sticks well to most surfaces.
Doesn’t get any easier than that!
