The Main Ingredients:

Baking soda is a miracle food that can also deodorize and scour. It has anti-fungal and antiseptic properties, and can remove stains.

White vinegar is great for removing odors. When the smell of the vinegar leaves, it takes other smells with it. It also cuts grease and removes mildew.

Hydrogen peroxide, in the 3% solution found at the grocery stores, is a mild bleaching agent.

Lemon oil, eucalyptus oil, lavender oil and tea tree oil (often called "essential" oils) are sold in natural health stores and some grocery stores. They have antiseptic and deodorizing properties.


The Recipes

Basic shower cleaner: In a spray bottle, mix two parts water, one part vinegar and about 3 drops essential oil per 2 ounces liquid. Shake and spray on shower, then wipe off.

Scouring cleaner: Just sprinkle baking soda on a sponge, wipe on and rinse off.

Mildew cleaner: In a spray bottle, mix one part hydrogen peroxide with one part water. Spray on mildew and wait one hour. Rinse off. Hydrogen peroxide can be irritating, so use caution.

Drain cleaner: Use the action of vinegar plus baking soda to clear drains. Pour baking soda in drain, then follow with vinegar. Wait 20 minutes, then pour hot water down drain. Do not do this if you have already tried a commercial product, as the vinegar can mix with the commercial product and cause dangerous fumes.


Other Easy Ways to Keep A Shower Clean

Here are a couple of other easy methods to keep a shower clean. Using a squeegee after each shower will keep mildew at bay and reduce cleaning time. Using a chamois cloth after each shower can also keep mildew at bay. Both of these methods require the cooperation of everyone who uses the shower.

Question: Homemade Shower Cleaner

I'm searching for a safe and effective shower cleaner that will remove pink and black mold from my shower. The only commercial one I have found to be effective is Tilex, but the fumes from the chemicals are very strong. I've used a basic vinegar solution, but no luck.

Hydrogen peroxide spray, leave and brush off the mould. Nothing else... no smells, no damage. I did this and it worked like a charm.

Question: Homemade Fresh Shower or Shower Saver

Bottle of Tilex Power Shower cleaner.How can I make the product, Shower Saver or Fresh Shower? I use this cleaner after the last person showers everyday and it really works. I would love to make my own cleaner like the name brand cleaner. Surely there is someone that knows what's in this product. Please let me know if you know the ingredients. It's approximately $5.00 per bottle.

Thank you.

This type of product is available in dollar stores. Don't know how well they work but you only risk $1 to try it out.

Question: Daily Shower Cleaner Recipe

I had bad problems with mold build-up on my shower curtain and tried every type of "remedy" to cure it. Not only did I find that harsh chemicals were ineffective in treating mold, they were caustic to work with and left a strong pool smell for days.

After researching blogs for months, I found a solution that is not only effective but also green! A friend turned me on to a suction-cup device that holds the curtain off of the tub siding, allowing fresh air to circulate to dry the area and prevent mold in the first place. I ordered online and they even gave me a new shower curtain liner, and three and half months later it's still mold free. Stopping mold before it starts is not only incredibly easy for me, but it's also the green solution I've been looking for. No more chemicals and no more constantly replacing the shower curtain! Their website is www.air-it-out.weebly.com Hope this helps!

I would like a recipe for the spray shower cleaner that is used immediately after taking a shower. PC from AZ
Answers:
Recipe 04/06/2004
Here's a recipes I found but haven't tried it...
  • 8 ounces of concentrated all purpose cleaner
  • 16 oz rubbing alcohol
  • water

Put all the ingredients into a gallon jug, fill the rest of the room with water. Then re-fill a spray bottle with the solution.

I don't know what the best concentrated all purpose cleaner would be, though. Maybe Simple Green?

White Vinegar 04/06/2004
I also wonder if just white vinegar might do the trick.
By Diane
Squeegee 05/08/2004
Keep a Squeegee thing you use for cleaning windows in the shower. As soon as you get out, simply run it down the panels and it will stay clean and clear forever.

How do you keep shower doors clean without using commercial product.

editegyed from Philadelphia, PA


RE: Homemade Shower Cleaner

I use distilled white vinegar. Mix a little bit in a spray bottle with some water. If the doors are really dirty, first make a paste of baking soda, white vinegar and a drop or two dish soap. Scrub. Rinse. Don't worry about the smell. Vinegar deodorizes and the smell disappears when it is dried. You can add a drop of essential oil to make it scented if you like. (08/14/2007)

RE: Homemade Shower Cleaner

Here's what works for me. First, use any product to really clean the doors. Then, get rid of bar soap (which contains waxes that cause the buildup) and use liquid soap (any kind). I use the big refills from Target or Walmart. Result? No scum buildup. Now, for the final thing. When you finish drying off with your towel, take 15 seconds (yes, it's that little time) to quickly wipe the water off the doors (no need to totally dry - just use your already damp towel). The difference is amazing - and all for just 15 seconds per shower. (08/15/2007)

RE: Homemade Shower Cleaner

Use a mix of vinegar with a few drops of lavender or tea tree oil in a spray bottle. It should get your doors really clean and tea tree oil is a disinfectant. (08/17/2007)

RE: Homemade Shower Cleaner

The water, vinegar, and dishsoap works great. Thank you. To keep it clean instead of a towel I use a squeegee. (08/21/2007)

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?

RE: Homemade Shower Cleaner

Wipe the walls of the shower off with ammonia undiluted to cut the soap scum easily. Good luck and keep us posted on what you end up doing. (11/16/2010)
