Cleaning products don’t have to be packed with harsh chemicals to be effective. You can deep clean every room in your home from the kitchen to the bathroom using natural ingredients that are non-toxic.
Bathrooms are particularly susceptible to dirt and grime. Glass shower doors can be among the toughest items to clean. Stubborn soap scum and minerals from hard water can leave unsightly streaks. Fortunately, you can return those shower doors to their gleaming glory with this simple homemade shower cleaner recipe.
DIY Shower Cleaner Recipe
- 1 large spray bottle
- 1 cup white vinegar
- 1 cup Dawn dish soap (blue Dawn liquid dish soap or Castile soap like Dr. Bronner’s)
- Essential oils (tea tree, lavender, or lemon are great options)
- Combine equal parts Dawn dish soap with white vinegar in a spray bottle.
- Add essential oils if desired. These oils may have antibacterial properties and leave a nice scent.
- Shake well and spray liberally over all surfaces in the shower.
- Let sit for 5 to 10 minutes and rinse clean.
The vinegar smell can be overwhelming so make sure to open a window as the cleaner works. For stubborn water marks or grime, add a sprinkle of baking soda or rubbing alcohol. Don’t forget to add the mixture to the shower spray and faucet.
Homemade cleaners are a great alternative for people looking to keep things neat and tidy without the chemicals. Natural cleaners harness the power of all natural ingredients to disinfect and remove stuck-on grime. They work great as a bathroom cleaner and can help remove water spots from shower doors.
Natural cleaners aren’t just for helping you get a clean shower. You can also use vinegar and hydrogen peroxide to clean other rooms in your house. The DIY cleaners work great as dishwashing soaps and tile cleaners. You can even add them to hot water to mop hardwood or linoleum floors. Turn to natural cleaning solutions for a clean home that isn’t full of chemicals.
