30 Minutes

If you are like me and often neglect your shower or tub and have a lack of time to clean, you need this magic cleaner! You can most likely make this with items you already have at home.

Gather your ingredients and mix.

White vinegar: 1 cup

Dawn dish soap: 1/2 cup

Baking soda: 1/4 cup

Spray bottle

Pour 1 cup vinegar, 1/2 dawn dish soap into the spray bottle. Shake until combined.

Before photo!

This photo is the before, showing the hard to clean spot that often occurs in a tub or shower. After using numerous store bought cleaners, this spot usually remains! Until, the magic homemade cleanse makes an appearance.

The magic “cleaning” step

This is where the magic begins... Sprinkle the baking soda onto the tub or shower surface, and then spray the liquid mixture generously. Let it sit at least 30 minutes to do its magic! After at least 30 minutes, you can wipe away the solution and if any pesky area remains you can gently scrub (usually not necessary).

Final step, rinse and gently wipe away & ADMIRE!

After letting the magic cleaner soak for at least 30 minutes, you can then rinse away. If any spot remains, gently scrub to remove any pesky spot. Admire your work, or lack of work!
