Cleaning the shower is one of those tasks that you know you should be doing more often than you are. The Prairie Homestead has come up with a DIY shower cleaner that slows down grime build-up, thus letting you take your time between cleanings.
Here’s what you need:
- 1.5 cups water
- 1 cup white vinegar
- 1/2 cup rubbing alcohol
- 1 teaspoon detergent
- 15 drops lemon essential oil
- 15 drops melaleuca (tea tree) essential oil
- Mix all the ingredients together in a quart-sized spray bottle.
- Shake well, and spray onto shower surfaces every day after use.
As the author notes, this is a maintenance spray and not a cleaner. What that means is that it doesn’t do the job of removing gunk and grime, but it makes the build-up slower than usual. You will still need to clean every part of your shower periodically, whenever you see it needs a cleaning. It’s also recommended that you give your shower a thorough scrubbing before you start using the cleaner spray, as it works best if you begin with a clean bathroom.
