Every person I know has that one chore that they absolutely hate. The one that they keep putting off until it becomes overpowering and you HAVE to do it. Personally, I can do laundry, dishes, dusting all day long but I hate, HATE, to clean my bathroom. It’s just the worst and embarrassing sometimes since it’s a room that is used very regularly in households. I have, however, found a cleaner that makes this job a lot easier.
This trick has been mentioned on Pinterest from several blogs and it absolutely works!!! It’s amazing. This mix is 1/2 vinegar and 1/2 blue Dawn dishwashing soap. I don’t know if any other Dawn will work as well so I stick with the blue. I use 1/4-1/3 of a cup of white vinegar heated in the microwave for 30 seconds and I mix it into a spray bottle with the same amount of Dawn. I have a rinsed out bottle of an old cleaning product that was almost done. I just rinsed it out throughly and keep it under my sink for when I need it.
(Shower before, totally gross)
Once you mix it, spray it all over your shower (you can use it on your whole bathroom really if you want to just get the whole room done) and let it sit for 1 1/2-2 hours. This smells strong so open a window or turn on the vent fan to prevent it from becoming overpowering. Once done I take a wet sponge and wipe everything down. The extra scummy parts get an extra scrub or two (the elbow grease needed to clean is significantly lessened here) and rinse everything off with hot water.
(Shower after, the grime came right off)
My shower looked fantastic when I was done. Grime I wasn’t able to remove with regular shower cleaners came up with no issue. I will never buy a bathroom cleaner again. This is better, cheaper and healthier. It may smell strong when you use it but it’s not as dangerous as breathing in other chemicals.
So go forth and tackle that bathroom with ease now that you have the scum weapon!
