Do you have a least favorite household job? Or maybe several?
My least favorite, hands down, is cleaning the tub and showers in our house.
I have always pretty much hated this part of keeping house. We have two bathrooms, each with a tub/shower, one of which is heavily used by all of us. I have never seemed to find the right cleaning product to whisk away the soap scum that builds up–until now. Yes! Finally!
I wish I had found this little recipe more than a decade ago. Seriously, it’s that good.
You only need 3 items in order to make your own too.
I used equal parts Dawn dish soap (the blue kind), hot vinegar, and an empty spray bottle.
I heated a bit of vinegar up separately, poured it into my spray bottle, then added what looked to be an equal amount of Dawn.
Spray liberally all over your tub and shower walls and let sit. I saw a site that recommended 2 hours, but I gave it a test swipe after 20 minutes and it cleaned it pretty well.
Scrub well and rinse.
Just a little heads up–this does not smell great. In fact, I ran my bathroom fan for awhile to help with the odor. It does go away, so don’t freak out.
I now have a sparkling clean tub and shower. Hooray!
Maybe this won’t be my least favorite job anymore. 🙂
