The worst area in the entire house to clean is the bathroom. Are you with me? I hate scrubbing toilets, washing down the shower or tub, and disinfecting the entire room. It’s inevitable, and the job has to get done, so to help make the bathroom clean-up project easier, I keep a spray bottle of homemade soap scum remover in the shower and then spray down the walls before I hop out, then come back to wipe down the walls later. It helps cut down the grime and keep the worst task more manageable.
Homemade Soap Scum Remover
- 1 cup Vinegar
- 1 tablespoon Corn starch
- 2 tablespoons Dawn, original formula (blue)
- Empty reusable spray bottle
Stir the cornstarch into your vinegar in a microwave safe bowl. Heat in the microwave for 2 minutes. Remove and stir. This should look like a gel.
Add your Dawn directly into the reusable spray bottle. Then, add your cornstarch/vinegar gel, and gently shake.
Spray your homemade soap scum remover directly onto the tub or shower walls. Allow to sit for 10-15 minutes, then wipe down with hot water.
Making your own homemade soap scum remover will save you a ton of money, too! This whole solution can be made for pennies, and will just take a few minutes to whip together.
Hooray for a cleaner shower, in no time!
