A few weeks ago The Goose and I headed up north for a whole week and came home to a completely remodeled bathroom. Before the remodel, we had an old plastic shower enclosure that was in pretty rough shape. When it came time to clean the shower, I wasn’t particular when it came to choosing a cleaner. But, now that I have a newly-tiled shower, I am making sure that I use cleaning products that will not only keep it sparkling clean, but that will also keep it in great condition for years to come.
To do that, I have been trying out a lot of recipes for homemade shower cleaners. It took a lot of trial and error, but I’ve finally found a tile cleaner that keeps my shower clean, is inexpensive, and doesn’t harm the fibers of my microfiber cleaning rags.
Homemade Tile Cleaner
2 cups White Vinegar
1/2 cup Dish Soap (I use Dawn, but I’m sure any brand will work)
Gently mix the vinegar and dish soap in a measuring cup. (Don’t stir too vigorously or shake it – if you do, you will end up with tons of foam). Pour the vinegar mixture into an empty spray bottle (I usually find these at the dollar store).
Spray the shower and let sit for about five minutes. After five minutes, use a rag to wipe down the shower walls. Quickly rinse with clean water.
