Pinterest Idea To Clean Your Tub or Shower

I know most of you who read this blog have joined Pinterest.  I know that many of you have tried this technique for cleaning the tub and shower because it has been posted on Pinterest many times.  For those who haven't, I want to say how great it works.  All you need is white vinegar and dish soap in equal proportions.  I usually measure out a half a cup of white vinegar and heat it in the microwave.  Then I add 1/2 cup of dish soap.  This small batch does a large walk in shower floor.   The recipe calls for using Dawn detergent but I used another grease cutting dish soap, and it worked just fine. 


12 ounces white vinegar (I used 1/2 cup or 4 oz.)
12 ounces liquid, blue dawn detergent (I used 1/2 cup or 4 oz.)

Directions:

Heat vinegar in microwave until hot and pour into squirt bottle.

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

You now have a powerful cleaning product that will melt soap scum and tub and shower buildup, clean sinks, appliances and just about anything. Just spray it on, scrub, rinse and be amazed. For tough soap scum build-up, spray the mixture on and allow it to sit as long as overnight. Then, scrub and rinse.
The solution is slightly thick so it clings and stays put.  

I use one of my hand crocheted scrubbies to scrub it clean.
