Super, Simple Shower and Tub Cleaner

Are you more of a homemaker or a housekeeper? I tend to be more of a homemaker; housekeeping is not my strong point. So I love anything that makes cleaning up quick and easy. I also like to break up cleaning jobs and do them a little each day, rather than one big, go through the whole house at once approach.  This super, simple shower and tub cleaner takes just two minutes a day! Even your teenagers can handle this. At least mine better be able to. Margo of Joyful Homemaking, who is the source for this pin, says her distaste for cleaning showers is right up there with cleaning toilets. I hear ya, Margo. I don’t like it any more than you do. I have been using this method for a couple of weeks now and it really works.

Just get a dish washing wand and fill the dispenser half with vinegar and half with liquid dish soap.  Keep it in the shower. That way everything is ready to go.  When you get in, wet the sponge, and scrub away.  Next, well, take a shower.  That’s it.  I do a little section of the shower each day and work my way around the whole area about twice a week.

If the mixture gets thick, just add a little water. Also, Marge cautions that it is important to rinse well, and keep out of eyes.

This Pin Rocks!

  5. X14spray will remove all mold and mildew without scrubbing. Works great on outdoor furniture also. I have tried everything. This is my go to cleaner.

    • Great tip Sandy. I have heard from folks who say they put this same mixture of vinegar and dish soap in a spray bottle for a no scrub effect. Nice to have an option without harsh chemicals. I haven’t heard of X14. I will check it out. Thanks for commenting.

  6. why my 2 sponges went of the handles,I brushed to hard?

    • That would be my guess, Krystyna. I scrub lightly for maintenance and do it once a week or so. Your shower must be really clean! You can buy replacement sponges though, so no worries!

  7. Thanks, I would like to try this one.

  8. I’ve made this and used the Dawn 2X concentrated, so doubled the other ingredients. At first I hadn’t doubled them and it seemed far thicker than necessary. It is working great, but does take some work to make sure every spot is wiped. I love your idea of the little scrubby ready to go. I’ll have to try that! Thanks!
