Make Your Own Daily Shower Cleaner Spray

This homemade daily shower cleaner spray is quickly becoming one of my favorite homemade cleaners. I've been using it for several months now and it's been working great!

      Bev @ The Make Your Own Zone Hmmm. I use bar soap, but I have a huge walk-in shower where I think it's actually shampoo splashing from me washing long hair. I can't fig'ger it out.
  • I have been using the vinegar/Dawn/water mix in a handle/scrubber & it seemed to work fine on regular wall tile & maufactured marble tub. This finish really accumulated soap scum, especially under the soap dish holding regular bar soap. Due to plumbing

      Linda Jowers You can use cheap shampoo or dish soap that is PH Balanced like Ivory. I don't know if I would use vinegar because it is a acid. Google the Manufacture and cleaning guidelines.

    No problem with mixing those chemicals together I gather.
    • Victoria D The ingredients in this daily shower spray mix together fine with no problems. Perhaps the one thing to be mindful of is that hydrogen peroxide can break down in the light after a
