bathroom tub cleaner without chemicals

How to make your own shower cleaner recipe!

Okay I know many people think I’m weird. As I live this life I try to get as many chemicals as possible out of my house. It’s just what I do. I find the old cleaning recipes better for the environment and great to use. They’re also easy on the pocketbook too. I found this recipe on Pinterest somewhere and wrote it down months ago. Isn’t it great the amount of procrastination one can do when it relates to cleaning. I finally cleaned my nasty tub and it worked fabulous.  What? My tub is always sparkling and shiny. My nose is growing. It’s nasty and gross. Not anymore!

At this point my house is 28 years old and so is the tub. The only thing that was working for me when I cleaned the tub was the magic eraser. This homemade tub cleaner worked fabulously! It cleaned  my tub without hardly any scrubbing. You have to try this. Check out my pics and the recipe.

Here’s my amazing shower cleaner recipe

  1. I plan to buy dawn the next trip. It seem to work on a lot of things. LIke you, I live in a very old house with a very old tub. It’s pink and we used that paint stuff to paint over it. Within the last year or two that has started to peal. I think mostly because we have hard well water and I have to use nasty chemicals to remove the stains. I have to be careful about what I can use or I will get sick and full of hives. The plain vinegar, baking soda and water method didn’t work for me.

  2. Man, vinegar can do everything! We always use a chemical cleaner with bleach and, even with scrubbing, doesn’t get everything clean. I’ll have to try this!

  3. It worked unbelievably well! I’m going to try that technique for sure. What I’m currently using works super well, but the fumes are just horrendous so I know it can’t be good for me.

  4. I have been loving homemade cleaners lately, Truth be told they actually work 10x better than what you buy at the store anyways.

  5. Love easy peasy things like this that work so much better and are so much cheaper!!! I have a few favorite homemade cleaner recipes of my own but have been looking for a good shower cleaner!

  6. We love Dawn. I’ve always heard great things about using Vinegar to clean with. It also makes your mirrors sparkly clean with no streaks.

  7. I’ve never heard of this before! I love that you use dish soap and vinegar. That’s so creative.

  8. What an easy recipe! I jotted it down so I could give it a try also. Thanks for sharing!

  9. I don’t think you are weird at all! I’ve recently developed hives. I’m pretty sure it’s something in my home. I am allergic to dust and have super sensitive skin so I’m right there with you trying to find better, healthier ways to keep our home clean. Vinegar is always a go too (and baking soda!). I live by it. Will give your recipe a shot to see how it goes this weekend. Thanks for sharing!

  10. I am learning to make a lot of things at home that a more natural and less harmful to the air quality

  11. Hey, I have both of these ingredients! Thanks a bunch; I pinned to save for later.

  12. Growing up we never had any chemicals in the house, mom used only natural cleaners. Need to get back to that.

  13. You are a brave lady! I don’t thing I could post a picture of our bathroom on my blog. Thank you for the simple “recipe” for cleaner!

  14. I use this recipe and it works really well! I don’t like to use nasty chemicals in the house either.

  15. Interesting we us Dawn to spot treat stains on white t-shirts! I love that it is animal safe too!

  16. Great idea, I never thought to mix vinegar with dawn. I use vinegar for cleaning but never mixed the two. Thanks for sharing.

  17. It certainly did a great job. I like using more natural ingredients like vinegar in household cleaning products.

  18. Vinegar is awesome you can do so much stuff with it! I have a trick with this for the shower head!

  19. Sounds super easy! I have used vinegar and baking soda and it worked well too.

  20. I’ve always hated cleaning the shower. This should help to make the job a lot easier. Thank you for linking at the In and Out of the Kitchen Link Party. Hope to see you again next week.
