One of the clever bathroom cleaning products that I’ve really grown to like over the years are the daily shower cleaner sprays. After you shower you simply mist some of the spray around on the shower walls and it helps to keep your shower clean with less mold or mineral buildup in between more thorough cleanings.
I started out with the name brands like Tilex. . .
then used the store brand . . .
then bought the dollar store stuff . . .
and now – I finally know how to make my own!
My homemade daily shower cleaner spray is actually doing an even better job than the store bought stuff was and that’s because the homemade version includes a dishwasher rinse aid product in the recipe. This has done an awesome job of leaving the shower surfaces cleaner and smoother after a shower.
When it’s cleaning day, I just give my shower tile a little scrubbing with my homemade lemon soft scruband it looks great. No heavy duty scrubbing is needed because the daily spray keeps things from getting too bad during the week.
In one of my previous posts about how to clean a shower head I shared that I also have some annoying glass block windows in one of my showers. Those glass block windows get covered in water spots – and they are soooo hard to clean off. I was super happy when I discovered that vinegar worked really great on the water spots.
But guess what?
1/2 cup Hydrogen Peroxide
1/2 cup Rubbing Alcohol
1 teaspoon Liquid Dish Soap
1 tablespoon Dishwasher Rinse Aid
3 cups Water
Begin by pouring the hydrogen peroxide, rubbing alcohol, liquid dish soap, and the dishwasher rinse aid into a spray bottle of at least a 32 oz size. A funnel is very helpful for this step.
Next, slowly add the 3 cups of water (the mixture might bubble a little bit because of the dish soap). If you are re-using a 32 oz bottle from a store bought daily shower cleaner spray, you really don’t even need to measure for this step . . . simply top off the bottle with water.
Put the top back on the spray bottle and then slowly tip the bottle back and forth to mix the ingredients.
To use: After showering, mist the spray on the walls of the shower and you’re done. There’s no need to wipe.
