    Heat up 1 cup of white vinegar, mix in about 1/4 cup of Dawn Premium. Not the dollar store kind, because it is too thin. When mixed, pour into a spray bottle and fill with water. Shake. Spray down the grout and let it sit overnight. In the morning rinse. If you have stubborn stains, spray again. Use this mixture a few times a week. It will keep your grout and tiles clean. Also works on glass shower doors. Works wonders in the toilet bowl to keep hard water stains at bay. Oh you only have to heat the vinegar one time when you add the Dawn.


    You can also use shampoo from the dollar store. You will have to rub it on and then I spray it off with my hand held. You may have to do that several times.

    If you’ve still build up around the trim or gaskets, after using the above noted help,

    I would take a single edge razor blade, held at a pretty flat angle & gently “plow” the deposits off the glass.

    You’ll need to fully rinse and remove them or they will dissolve and re-deposit. Dry with an old towel.

    6 Reasons You'll Want a Can of Cooking Spray in the Bathroom


    Turns out that your favorite go-to canola oil spray for non-stick cooking, like Pam Cooking Spray, also has some pretty stellar uses outside of the kitchen, too. Read ahead for a handful of surprisingly savvy ways to use cooking spray in your bathroom—yes, your bathroom—no skillet or cookie pans necessary.


    1. Clean soap scum off your shower


    Who knew cooking spray could tackle soap scum buildup in your bathtub, shower, and sink? Since oil breaks down lime deposits, a quick spritz of cooking spray on your bathroom sink or shower tile will remove any gross grime in no time. Also leaves a coating that will repel water.


    2. Dry nail polish almost instantly


    Believe it or not, cooking spray can help set your freshly painted manicure in minutes. All you have to do is spray a bit of cooking oil on your wet polish and then dip your finger in cold water for 30 seconds to score dry nails much faster than you would if you waited for them to air-dry. Your teenage girls will love this.


    3. Clean paint and grease off your skin


    Looking for a foolproof way to remove paint and grease off your skin in a pinch? Spritz some nonstick cooking spray on your soiled skin, rub it in, and then wash it off with little soap and water to get rid of any pesky paint and grease in seconds.


    4. Shine your faucets


    Nothing will make your bathroom fixtures glisten like a little bit of cooking spray. Spritz a tiny bit on your sink faucets and shower fixtures to rid them of buildup and allow them to really shine. Also leaving a fine coating that will repel water and future water spots.


    5. Clean your glass shower door


    Just like nonstick cooking spray can remove tough grime buildup in your bathroom sink and tub, the same goes for cleaning your shower door, too. Simply spray a bit of oil directly on your dirty shower door to clear away the lime deposits and dirt real quick. Use a kitchen scrubby to clean off the crud. The fine coating left behind will repel water.


    6. Silence a squeaky bathroom door


    Don't have any WD-40, all you need to silence a squeaky bathroom door is a tiny bit of non-stick cooking spray. Spritz a little oil directly onto the hinges of your bathroom door (or window) and quell those annoying noises for good.
