Homemade Shower Cleaner
You may already know that I only buy the original blue Dawn and I use it as my hand soap and my soap for washing dishes. I stock up on it when it is on sale for $0.97 at the grocery store then use my coupon or I will just buy a big thing of it at Sam's. There are a LOT of ways to use the original blue Dawn.
I also use vinegar a lot. So when I saw a homemade shower cleaner recipe on my friend's Facebook page I knew I had to try it.
This is her recipe:
4 ounces blue Dawn dishsoap (ONLY use the original blue Dawn)
12 ounces plain white vinegar
Mix it all up in a spray bottle. Once per week, spray your entire shower, bathtub, and fixtures with this stuff. Wait 1-2 hours then rinse. That's right - no scrubbing. Your entire shower and tub will be sparkly clean and shiny - and your grout will stay mildew free! **I used my Pyrex cups to measure out the ingredients.
Verdict: Um, yes, it works! My fixtures are brighter (I have hard water). It is so easy to do!
Drawback: The smell of vinegar is so strong. I am going to try to some drops of essential oil next time to see if that will help.
