Sick Of Soap Scum On Your Shower Door, Try This Recipe
If you're looking for an Amazingly Effortless Scum removing cleaner recipe, look no further. This super simple, dirt cheap cleaner removes the scuzziest of grime without ANY elbow power- and what's better than that? It's Environmentally Friendly to boot!
1/2 c. of Basic Good Quality Dish soap
1/2 c. White Vinegar
1 spray bottle
Heat the vinegar until it's HOT, I simply put mine in a glass pyrex measuring cup and stuck it in the microwave for 1 minute.
Pour it into a clean spray bottle, add the dawn dishsoap, put the cap on and shake very gently to mix. (Or you can mix it right in the pyrex measuring cup and pour it into the bottle, like I did.
Spray liberally on the surface you wish to clean, leave it alone to do the work for 20 minutes or so. Or better yet, spray it before you go to work, and wipe it up when you come home. Once it's had a chance to work it's magic, wipe it off with a clean rag or sponge and some warm water. The surface will shine like the top of the chrysler building, just like ol' Miss Hannigan prefers it!
Below is a photo taken from the inside of my shower (yeah I know soapscum is nasty!) I only washed one door on the right so you could see the before & after.
You could technically mix up more than 1 c. at a time, but you want the vinegar to be hot when you mix them and use it, so it's best to only mix up what you need.
When you spray it on, it applies like a gel, so it sticks well to most surfaces.
