Homemade Shower-Bathtub Cleaner

Check out this Homemade Shower-Bathtub Cleaner.  You only need 2 ingredients to make this simple cleaner – Dawn dish soap and vinegar. I have plenty of Dawn dish soap in my stockpile so I decided to try it. Be sure to Re-Pin this post.

To make this all you have to do is microwave 1/2 cup of vinegar for 90 seconds. Pour into spray bottle. Add 1/2 cup Dawn dish soap and mix together. You heat the vinegar so that it mixes easily with the dawn and becomes more effective for cleaning.  Next you simply spray your entire tub and shower and let it sit for an hour. Then wipe with a damp cloth and rinse well. (I had to scrub some spots with a little elbow grease to get them completely clean).

The smell of the cleaner is not bad because the Dawn comes through more than the vinegar. The dawn really helps cut the grime from the tub.   Some say that they don’t heat the vinegar before mixing and it still works for them.  I tried it both ways and it was more effective for me to heat it.

Here is a sample of my before and after shower when I used it.  As you can see it is really sparkling!  I love how clean it made the shower and cut the grime too!

    I have been using this for a long time and I have never microwaved the vinegar. Also, use essential oils to cut the smell of vinegar. Works amazingly well!

      Thanks Gretchen! I love that it works and you don’t have to use the microwave. What oils do you like? I love using Lavender.
