One thing that I have been thinking about lately is how to make an everyday shower spray that will make my glass doors, tiles, and mirrors sparkle. Plus, it needed to be effective on soap scum. That’s a tall order for a homemade, natural cleaner!
I have combined the amazing disinfecting power of Thieves Household Cleaner with the glass cleaning ability of vinegar. The Thieves and essential oils help to reduce the smell of the vinegar.
This is a perfect everyday spray for your shower. You can spray down the shower and then walk away or if you need to, let it sit for a bit to loosen soap scum, then wipe down throughly. Tough soap scum may require a baking soda scrub. Once the scum has been removed you can begin using it as a daily preventative spray.
Here’s the nuts and bolts of this cleaner. Vinegar has been used for many years as a natural household cleaner. Lemon is an effective degreaser and cleaner. Orange oil is also an effective cleaner.
