This DIY All Purpose Cleaner is my all time favorite cleaner for every day messes. I swear, between the kids and the dog, I am wiping up one thing or another at least 400 billion times a day. Not an exaggeration.
This really is the BEST tub and shower cleaner!
First of all, let me say, cleaning really isn’t one of my strengths. Like, at all. Just ask my husband…or anyone who has been to my house in the last 2 years.
I wasn’t always this way. I mean, sure…my car has always looked like I live out of it and my closet is more of mass grave (read: pile) for “things that will fit me someday”. But I was always able to keep my messes contained to those two areas until one day outta nowhere, I had my second kid. Ok, maybe not out of nowhere…Anyone with even a slight understanding of human anatomy can probably deduce where he came from.
Mooooving on, this isn’t a birth story. 😉
My point is, I am not in any way a guru of the cleaning sort. On the rare occasion that I do have time to clean more than just the smashed goldfish and boogers off my shirt, I want it to actually LOOK CLEAN!
Insert the best tub and shower cleaner EVER!
The magical recipe? Dawn dish soap, vinegar, and water. That’s it!
1 part Dawn
1 part vinegar
2 parts water
Mix together in a spray bottle.
This stuff really works and requires almost NO scrubbing! Just spray it on, let it soak for five minutes, wipe it off, and rinse. You might need a scrubber brush and little elbow grease on tough stains but not much. I promise!
Now, when I take a few minutes to clean my shower and walk out to see the sharpie that has been smeared all over the wall in my absence, I calmly walk back into the bathroom, lock the door and stare joyfully at my sparkling tub.
Oh! It works on sinks, too!
