Remove Soap Scum With a Grapefruit and Kosher Salt

3 Materials
5 Minutes

Remove that awful soap scum using all natural products which leaves behind a fresh citrus scent!
All you need are two simple ingredients: grapefruit and kosher salt. Begin by slicing your grapefruit in half.

Liberally pour the kosher salt onto the cut half of the grapefruit.
Scrub the soap scum, adding more salt as you go along.
Rinse well with water. (If I was not taking pictures, I would have closed the door and rinsed it using the shower head.)
Dry well.

*Please note that grapefruit is toxic to pets. Be sure to dry the area well before letting pets come in contact.
I also cleaned the shower handle. This is before....
And this is after!!!
Squeaking clean and ready for a shower!

    brilliant! I kind of liked the handle before you cleaned it! lol! I have found that once it is clean, some white vinegar and water will keep it clean and spot free if you spray it on after your shower.
