I'm trying to find a formula for homemade daily shower cleaner. I've tried vinegar/water and Jetdry/water, but they don't quite "cut" it. Anyone have any suggestions?

Daily Shower Cleaner
Put vinegar in spray bottle and fill rest of bottle with water. Spray shower with daily cleaner after last shower of the day to keep a clean shower spot free. Water sheets off walls. Spray shower curtain, too. Do not rinse.
Use the following to clean your shower before using the Daily Cleaner.
Fill a 32 ounce Rubbermaid spray bottle with this solution, and fill rest of spray bottle with water. Use this solution and spray heavily on shower walls and use a scrubbie or sponge to remove hard water and soap scum from shower walls. Rinse thoroughly.

One time every week, I like 1 part bleach to 3 parts water. Works for me.
Spray the walls, (spray bottle) till very wet then leave the room, close the door and keep out for at one hour. Then spray the walls with clear water. (06/24/2006)
Things like Tea Tree oil or baking soda or even Eucalyptus oil. The oils in a little hot water or straight on the cloth don't need wiping over a second time. But the baking soda on a damp cloth would need rinsing off. (07/09/2006)
I've used this on our new shower for years: works great.
For a 24-oz spray bottle:
Don't make up a big batch to refill because the H2O2 doesn't last very long and turns into good-old H2O. The H2O2 dissolves proteins (like sloughed skin and body fluids), the alcohol and Dawn dissolve oils, the Jet Dry suspends the minerals. (08/25/2006)
Water with 10 to 20 percent bleach works fine. And you can buy the kind that does not smell. (10/16/2006)
Bryan's recipe works great. If you want to make it up ahead of time, leave out the hydrogen peroxide and make a gallon of base solution from:
To fill a 32 oz. spray bottle add 2/3 C hydrogen peroxide and fill with base solution. For a 24 oz. bottle use 1/2 C peroxide and top off. (02/12/2007)
Be careful with pure white vinegar in the shower. I began using it in my Scrubbing Bubbles Shower cleaner and it worked great. The only problem is that the acid in the vinegar broke down the caulk around our tub surround and allowed mildew to grow. So, the tub ended up looking worse than it did if I hadn't cleaned it at all. We had to replace the caulk and start all over. But it was probably just because it was so very concentrated, diluting it would probably help. (04/18/2007)
Daily Shower Spray (makes 1/2 gal.)
Use an empty 1 gallon container to mix the solution. Use:
Give a few last shakes to combine. Pour into spray bottle for use in the shower.

Vinegar is acidic. Green Potions has a daily shower spray. You spray it on before you get out of the shower and rinse it off with shower water just before getting out of the shower. Then just leave it to dry by itself and it dries crystal clear. I should note that you need to start with a clean shower then use it daily. It will stop any build up in the shower. You can get it in a grapefruit, spearmint, and a couple of others I think.
