One of my biggest pet peeves is a nasty shower. #barf
But to be honest, it is inevitable and I don’t always keep up with it. It’s tedious and annoying. Plus, I’ve tried so many products and most of them only help with surface issues. Nothing long term and so much money is wasted.
Until I found my own way. Let me show you what I do. 2 ingredients, once every other week or once a month (I’m not judging) and you probably have it all at home too.
Baking Soda and water. That’s it.
- 1 cup of baking soda
- 1/4 cup of water
- Make a paste. It should be thick. If it seems too runny, add more baking soda. You want it to have the grit to scrub off the scum.
- Use a sponge, a brush or even your hands. But make sure you use gloves to protect your skin. It won’t hurt you but it may dry out your hands and that is never fun.
- In a circular motion, scrub the scum off. Once all of the doors/ glass is covered, use warm or hot water to wash it off. You will see the difference immediately.
- Dry it with a towel or paper towel to keep it clean longer. If you leave the water stains, it will leave marks again. Not like soap scum but definitely some water stains.
For some extra boost, you can add a splash of hydrogen peroxide but it isn’t necessary to get the soap scum off the shower doors. Or if you want to make it smell good, add a few drops of lemon essential oil or even a fresh squeeze of lemon. But again, not necessary.
You can use this same mixture for your tub, kitchen sink, toilets and more. It is a clean way to deodorize and keep your home fresh.
