The Best DIY Homemade Shower Cleaner

The Best DIY Homemade Shower Cleaner

Posted by Amanda Cleckler on 17th Jul 2017

In an effort to try and cut out some of the toxic chemicals we use in our home, and find a way to get rid of the icky soap scum in my shower, I started looking around for some tried and true shower cleaner methods that actually work.

It seems like no matter what I do that nasty scum is looking me straight in the eye...taunting me..."you'll never get me..." Ha! But alas, I have found a method that not only works wonders and is super simple, but it is much less toxic than some of the traditional store bought cleaners and best part....wait for it...IT IS CHEAP!!! Who doesn't love cheap, right?

DAWN DETERGENT + VINEGAR = BEST HOMEMADE SHOWER CLEANER

The Best Homemade Shower Cleaner

What you will need: 

  • Dawn Detergent (the blue kind)
  • Distilled White Vinegar
  • Scrub Brush Bottle or Spray Bottle

How to Make it:

This DIY shower cleaner recipe is so easy to make, and is so inexpensive! You can find these ingredients in any supermarket or grocery store. It is so much cheaper than store bought shower cleaner and is much safer. All you need to do to make this recipe is fill your sponge bottle with equal parts detergent and vinegar. If you have extremely stubborn soap scum buildup you can heat the vinegar for an even deeper clean. I recommend keeping your sponge bottle in the shower and giving your shower a quick, daily scrub-down to minimize any soap scum buildup.
