Homemade Shower Cleaner

Alright, I'm just going to come out and say it.

I love cleaning products. I love them.
Thinking about the day I first used my Dyson still makes me misty.

I love cleaning products but I hate the chemicals. It's hard to find pet friendly, eco-friendly, organic cleaning products that are worth the money. It's surprisingly easy to make them yourself.

Being the cleaning product geek I am, I took it upon myself to test several different recipes in order to find the best DIY cleaning products. My mission: use common household items that are pet and eco-friendly. Not all of my recipes are 100% organic, but I can guarantee you have everything you need to make them already at your disposal.

Let's get our Ms. Clean on, y'all.

LediaMedia's Homemade Shower Cleaner
LediaMedia Tested, Seal of Approval

What You'll Need
  • 6 oz white vinegar
  • 6 oz dish soap
  • 1 spray bottle
  • Funnel (optional)

Creating Your Homemade Shower Cleaner
  1. Heat 6 oz. white vinegar in microwave-safe dish until very warm. I recommend starting at 15 seconds.
  2. Pour 6 oz. of dish soap into spray bottle. Use a funnel to make this easier.
  3. Pour a small amount of heated white vinegar into a spray bottle. This will cause intense foaming action. Repeat until all vinegar is in the spray bottle.
  4. Shake well.
Please note: only heat the white vinegar the first time you mix the solution. Do not reheat after use.


How to Use Your Homemade Shower Cleaner
  1. Spray mixture anywhere in shower (tub basin, walls, shower curtain or wall, shower head, etc).
  2. Use a sponge to clean away dirt, grime, and soap build up.
  3. Rinse with hot water.
That's it! Simple, huh?

What I Learned
  • This smells fantastic! Seriously -- unicorn fantastic.
  • The solution is GREAT at removing soap scum. I was surprised at how thoroughly it cleaned the tub and walls.
  • It's safe to use while you are in the shower -- yes, that means you can shower and clean the shower at the same time.

  1. !) Um. I'm trying this. We have hard water and I just can't seem to get that shower soap-scum free!

    2) Window cleaner. I LOVE clean windows. More than anything. I LOVE LOVE LOVE clean windows. WiLL be using this.

    3) Drains - I actually use this one (sans the salt, so I'm going to have to try that). It works so well. Seriously. And... this is a HUGE cut-down on HARSH chemicals! YOU GO GIRL!

    4) I love this. Yes, vinegar goes away... but you have to get used to it. I do have one tip... DO NOT use vinegar on granite or natural stone. It actually will eat away the polish over time. If travertine or marble or sandstone, it will actually ETCH it! AHHH!

    One of my FAV posts girl! :-)
