1. Select Your Brush for the Homemade Shower Cleaner
The best way to maintain a clean shower with ease is to clean it daily. It doesn’t need to be a long, drawn out process.
In fact, it can take as little as a minute or two per day, and you shouldn’t have to battle soap scum again.
To start, pick out a soap dispensing scrub brush. They’re usually found on the cleaning aisle in most grocery or big box stores.
This style of brush is typically used to wash dishes. You can get the brushes with the longer handles, but I prefer the brush that fits in the palm of my hand.
It makes for easier storage in my shower, but this is up to you.
Once you have the right brush, you’re ready to rock-and-roll!
2. Make Your Homemade Shower Cleaner
This next step can be accomplished in a variety of ways. You can use a combination of ingredients to make an adequate homemade shower cleaner.
The first method I used was my homemade all-purpose cleaner. I filled the scrub brush with this DIY cleaner and used it regularly.
I was happy with the way it worked, but my husband hates the smell of vinegar. This is when I began working to find another acceptable homemade shower cleaner.
This led me to the next option: Dawn dish soap. I’m sure you could use another liquid dish soap, but I love Dawn. It does a great job on the dishes, so I feel confident it does an adequate job of keeping my shower clean, too.
What I’m currently using is Dr. Bronner’s castile soap. I use this soap as hand soap, shampoo, laundry detergent, and now I use it to clean my shower too.
I don’t mix anything with the soap. All you need is to pour a few drops of soap in the dispenser, add water to dilute it, and you’re ready to clean your shower.
Choose between any of these options to see which method works best for you as a homemade shower cleaner.
3. Put Your Clean Shower Method into Action
This last step is simple. While you shower each day, take two minutes to scrub your shower walls and floor with this brush and homemade shower cleaner.
It helps keep soap scum down. I also use it to scrub the bottom of my shower curtain liner because if you have hard water it can become stained.
This way, when cleaning day rolls around, I don’t have to do much to the shower. I spray the liner with a bleach cleaning solution to keep it looking and smelling fresh.
But that’s all it takes to keep my shower clean consistently. Who knew all you needed was a dish brush, homemade shower cleaner, and two minutes out of your day?
Hopefully this tip will help you to maintain a cleaner home and bathroom on a regular basis. Be sure to add this tip to your cleaning routine to better simplify your life.
Maintaining a clean home isn’t an easy job, but with a few tips and tricks, it can be accomplished without becoming overwhelming. Happy cleaning!
