World’s Best Shower Cleaner (Make It Yourself With Just 2 Ingredients!)

I’ve shared with you before my favorite Make Your Own All Purpose Cleaner, and now it’s time for me to share the world’s best shower cleaner that you can make yourself.

My sister recently said to me “You have got to try this shower cleaner! It’s the best stuff EVER!”, which of course meant that I would go right home and make it and try it. With just two ingredients, this shower cleaner is truly amazing. It’s also super cheap to make.

If soap scum is your enemy, than this shower cleaner is perfect for the job. The longer it sits, the better it seems to work.

World’s Best Shower Cleaner

12 ounces white vinegar
12 ounces liquid Dawn dish soap (the blue colored regular one)
24-ounce squirt bottle

Heat the vinegar in the microwave until hot and pour it (carefully!) into a squirt bottle. I used a large measuring cup to do this.

Add the Dawn soap. Put the lid on and gently shake to incorporate.

Spray it all over your shower walls, floors, and glass. Spray it on everything! Let it sit a few minutes, and then wipe off. It won’t even take much scrubbing on your part because this shower cleaner does all the work for you! For really, really tough built-up soap scum, spray the shower cleaner on and let it sit for hours or even overnight. Then, scrub and rinse.

You might think there would be a ton of bubbles and a huge mess but surprisingly, there’s not. It’s really easy to clean up.

You can also use this shower to clean tubs, sinks, appliances and anything else in the bathroom.

  7. does this make the shower slippery? Also, anyone know where you can buy a spray bottle that doesn't leak all over the place? I can't seem to find one that doesn't leak more than it sprays. thanks

      Walmart in the paint section where the ZEP is, get the ZEP bottle the one with the yellow spray top they are amazing!
  8. Does it have to be hot in order to use it? If so, do you just reheat it when ready to use it, or have to start all over each time? Thanks!
  9. I use this all the time and it is amazing. Melts the gunk off like magic.
