Come on in! Join Pinterest today...it only takes like a second or so.
How much of each do you use.
I just did this today. I live in an apt. and the ground in stuff in the tub coating hasn't come out in 5 years. I've tried everything to scrub it out. Today--I tried this and I'll be doggoned if it didn't take that stuff up easy peasy. I let it set for about 3 hours. Just a little bit of wiping and voila!!! I used 1 cup vinegar and 3 oz. Dawn. I'm amazed and very impressed!
love this. but just one question do u have to mix a new bottle overtime u clean
Yikes my grout turned blue.
I made this to clean my bathroom. It sparkles! No bad fumes and I don't have rough hands after cleaning.
You don't have to use Dawn - I used a very cheap brand of dish soap, with the 1:1 mix, and it worked great!
it worked wonders! >>:)
I just did this today. My shower has never been this clean. I love it. Vinegar is a better smell than bleach any day.
i love it !!!
Great way to clean glass shower doors....rub with used fabric softener sheets. Save them from the dryer...you'll be amazed.
This is the best cleaner, my windows are shining, thanks Aspen Bennett for sharing
12 oz of Dawn sounds like way too much soap.
Sorry for typo... 2oz instead of 12oz of Dawn
Oh good I'm glad I wanted to try it then.
I worked at a refinery where they make asphalt...the hardest stuff to get off of anything....the guys there taught me to use WD-40...they use it on their clothes and they even use it to kill bugs. My husband works there now as a contractor...he uses it now for his boots, the bottom, before he gets in the car. Asphalt just wipes away. I know this post is for Dawn/vinegar, which I am about to try. I have cleaned professionally since I was a kid, as we had our own janitorial service. I am excited to try it.

I was excited to try this. I did and I puked the entire time. The smell is horrible and it burned my throat. It worked well but I will never use it again.
We bought an older condo with glass shower doors that had probably never been clear since the day they had been installed. I got a razor blade made for taking paint off of windows -the kind with with a handle? It took the thick soap scum off perfectly. Then you just keep it off with a squeegee when you shower. This concoction is good for the door trim, but for the thick stuff on the door -try the razor blade!
can you please tell me what Dawn is? ta
It is a dish washing liquid. It is the blue kind that they say to use with this mixture. Not sure why....but it does work!! I added almond extract....it still is very POTENT....but the smell does away after a bit. It definitely smells clean when you are done!! Worked wonders on my "old" shower stall!
We use te equal parts white vinegar and blue dawn but add a splash of vanilla extract to buffer the strong smell, works great!
Equal amounts causes way too many suds....will try again without so much Dawn.
What happens if you don't warm the vinegar?
I used the new overnight power dawn let it soak for 20 min and it wiped away stuff ive been trying to get off for years , however the smell was unbearable
I also used it on my stove top and it cleaned everything that any other product could not clean before!
Add a few drops of Tea Tree Oil which acts as a disinfectant also and it will smell like Pine Sol.
Had a plumber in to rod the drain and the mess he left behind plus all the soap scum plus the horrible smell of backed up drain are all gone. The bathroom has never been cleaner. Give me the smell of vinegar over any chemical bathroom cleaner any day. And my eyeballs didn't feel like they were being peeled either.. I wonder would this work as an oven cleaner?
I'll have to try this. COOL!
HAS ANYBODY TRIED JUST HOT VINEGAR WITHOUT THE DAWN?
I've been using just vinegar but it doesn't work as well on soap scum as when you add Dawn. I did the 1:1 ratio, but it seemed very sudsy. Will use less Dawn next time. It cleans well. If you buy cheap vinegar, it will smell (especially if it's made from petroleum). Find a moderately priced vinegar that is made from grain or is organic and it won't have as strong of a smell.
I just used 1 1/2 cups white vinegar (very hot) with about 2 oz of Palm Olive dish washing liquid because that's what I had on hand. I let it soak for 2 hours on my shower walls and glass doors and it worked beautifully!
I used this today on our VERY hard water stains. I normally am left gagging from the smell of the cleaners that are strong enough to get rid of the stains, and aching from scrubbing. This worked like a dream, and only after an hour of being sprayed on!!! I used blue Dawn, may use a scented Dawn next time. Still smelled better that Tilex!!
This really works great on the tub and shower doors. Mine have never looked better. I use the blue dawn.
Put the mix in a dish scrubber with the empty soap handle! Wha-LA!
Did this last night and it was wonderful! Another great idea that I tried was pouring straight white vinegar on the shower floor and then sprinkling with baking soda. It bubbles up. I left it about 15 minutes then rinsed. The grout looked fantastic. It was in good shape anyway, but this really brightened it up!
I like this it works good and the vinegar gives you a clean smell.
I like using vinegar
I have tried it many times after my brother sent it to me and wow...
I echo the magic of this. I tried it this morning to see if it would get the stubborn scale on my big, white shower tiles. I sprayed it on, left it half an hour, and VOILA! It worked like magic! No scrubbing. I must say, I spent quite a bit of time in the shower (I had to take a very long shower myself just to get all the soap off the walls). I'm going to try the preventative concoction in a squeegee thing to see if it prevents the scale from building up in the first place.
I cant believe how many ppl hv repinned this!! I use this alot!!
I also use white vinegar instead of fabric softener in my washer - no smell on clothes and doesn't mess up your washer. You can also use white vinegar You can use white vinegar in your dishwasher instead of buying those more expensive additives for sparkling your dishes. Cleans the dishwasher as well and glasses sparkle. So many uses for white vinegar and saves you lots of money. Will try this for my shower tomorrow!
I love this stuff can't believe How come we haven't done this years ago. I remember living in a house with rusty water lots of iron and we could never get the tub clean. I just want to go back to that area and show them this stuff
I just tried this but with an unscented dish soap and a touch of orange essential oil and it smells and looks so sparkly and clean! It really cleans soap scum very well....we actually use this for the cleaning company I work for and it is just awesome - try it!! The best thing is no harsh chemicals.....the vinegar can be strong but if you spray, let it sit for a while and then come back to it you aren't completely inhaling that. But add a little essential oil - whatever scent you like - and even better!
Got to try this today!!
This is a great cleaner if you can stand the smell. I will try vanilla extract in it next time to see if it makes a difference in smell. Thanks for all the advice.
Going to try this today, and will add a few drops of lavender essential oil..
My daughter tried this for me about two years ago - It was great, so I am ready to do it again.
Smell definitely cleared my sinuses. Waiting for solution to work its magic. Will posts results later...
Tried... Worked!!! On to my next bathroom!!! Thanks!
