You Don't Need Vinegar To Make This All-Natural DIY Shower Cleaner

Although there are many important areas around the home to keep clean, few need as much care and attention as the shower and bathroom. The shower can get very grimy as dirt builds up, so you need to give it regular care and attention. While vinegar is a versatile cleaning tool around the home, it's not always the best option for cleaning the shower. Many people dislike the smell of vinegar and some may not have it around the house at all times. Fortunately, a great all-natural DIY shower cleaner doesn't require vinegar at all.

A simple mixture of hydrogen peroxide, rubbing alcohol, and dish soap works well for keeping the shower sparkling clean. To create the solution, simply mix half a cup of hydrogen peroxide, half a cup of rubbing alcohol, and one tablespoon of liquid dish soap. Add it to a spray bottle and fill it the rest of the way with water. If you want a little bit of extra cleaning power, you may also want to add a few drops of lemon, lavender, and/or eucalyptus essential oils to the mix.

How to use this DIY cleaner in your shower

To use this DIY cleaner in your shower, start by shaking it. Then, apply it to any parts of your shower that need to be cleaned. Unlike with other cleaners, you won't need to rinse or wipe this off once you've applied it. Simply let it dry and do its job of cleaning the surface areas of your shower.

Keep in mind that this DIY cleaner is safe for most shower surfaces. It's perfect for materials such as vinyl, glass, ceramic, porcelain, fiberglass, and acrylic. However, you should avoid using it on the various types of natural stone tile that you can use in your shower, such as marble and granite. As an additional precaution, spot-test this cleaner before using it to ensure that it reacts appropriately to your shower. Also, remember that you need to safely store hydrogen peroxide and the cleaning solutions you make with it. When you're done using this DIY cleaner, store it in a dark container and keep it at a cool temperature away from light.
