Homemade Tilex Shower Cleaner

Does anyone have the home made recipe for the store brand Tylex that is used to spray on the shower enclosure after each shower? We had it, but can't find it now.

Thanks.

Homemade Tilex Shower Cleaner

  • 1 cup vinegar
  • 1 squirt Dawn
  • 1/4 cup Jet Dry

Put all of the above in a large squirt bottle. Add water carefully so that you don't get alot of bubbles. Label as poison. (05/10/2007)

What is Jet Dry? Do we have it in Australia?

Editor's Note: Jet Dry is an dishwasher additive. It goes in during the rinse cycle to help dishes rinse and dry without streaks. I don't know if you have a product like it in Australia.

Green Potions has an eco friendly daily shower spray. Used daily your shower will never get any build up of soap scum. (05/27/2008)

Tilex Formula = aqueous solution of 3% Sodium hypochlorite (i.e., household bleach); 1% sodium hydroxide (i.e., lye, oven or drain cleaner). The hydroxide cuts the soap scum (dissolution) and the bleach disinfects (oxidation).

Given that household bleach is ~6% and oven cleaner is ~5%, 1-pint of solution would be to take 8 oz. household bleach and add 3 oz. of oven cleaner, and 5 oz. of water. However, that just sounds too strong to me, so you may want to dilute as you see fit.
