Tub & Shower Magic (Dawn & White Vinegar.) Oh my gosh I made this stuff and it's fantastic! You should see my sinks, showers and faucets They look brand new! Must try.
OMG this stuff is great!!! For hard water stains, let set overnight
and brush and repeat. It's amazing! The smell of vinegar is a lot
less offensive than tilex!
it really does work.it does run off you have to actualy wipe it but it truley wipes off.!!! no scrubbing!!!
This stuff is THE SH*T! Tried it last night... cleaned my bathroom with it and it was SO easy... spray on, wipe off... looks brand new!
I was skeptical but i thought i would give it a try anyway and WOW did it work. I only waited 1hr not 2 and it worked great.
going to try this
Wonder how well it'll work on mineral deposit. Will let you all know.
Mercedes...I had to try it twice. I have horribly hard water and the mineral deposits were soooo hard to get rid of. The first time I tried it...it didn't do anything...but I only let it soak for about an hour. The second time I tried it, I let it soak overnight and then used a scouring sponge on the doors. It still took a little bit of scrubbing, but it did come off. My shower doors look a whole lot better now! :)
Worked great on our glass shower doors and the shine lasted a long time. Gonna do it again tomorrow. Thanks for the hint
Love this stuff!!
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.
