Shower Cleaner - I had previously pinned this, but now that I have tried it I am pinning it again. Seriously the easiest and best shower cleaner I have ever tried. Everything came off with no scrubbing. 1 cup vinegar (heated) mixed with 1 cup original blue Dawn. Spray on shower and let sit for 2 hours. Wipe off with a wet sponge.
Rose: Take advantage of Mom's Costco membership. Bulk prices for these ingredients will be even more cost efficient and if you go in on the price with friends, even better. Paul can't complain about the time you spend on Pinterest if you save a butt-load of money!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Seriously?! -- Vinegar works as a wood stain when you add a metal object in the mix and let it sit in a glass container for a week. A handful of pennies will produce a beautiful pale Caribbean blue stain. A wad of steel wool will give you a rich reddish hue. A combination of tea and a metal object in vinegar will produce a black stain. Log this away for later.
Tub Cleaner - vinegar and dish soap, no scrubbing! Heat 1/2C white vinegar in m'wave for 90 sec, pour int spray bottle. Add 1/2C BLUE Dawn dish soap. Shake gently to mix. Spray on surface, let it sit 1-2 hours. Just wipe it away then rinse with water. Should also take soap scum off shower doors!
Homemade Window Cleaner 1 cup white vinegar 1 cup water 8 drops essential oil (I used grapefruit essential oil.) Combine all ingredients in a plastic spray bottle. Shake well before using. Use like Windex on glass and mirrors.
Shower cleaner - just vinegar and Dawn dish soap... worth a try! It says, "powerful cleaning product that will melt soap scum and tub and shower buildup, clean sinks, appliances and just about anything. Just spray it on, scrub, rinse and be amazed. For tough soap scum build-up, spray the mixture on and allow it to sit as long as overnight. Then, scrub and rinse."
Homemade Window Cleaner ~ going to make this today. Will let you know how turns out. ~ OK, so I tried this today and it was awesome! I put a few drops of Dr Bronner's Castile soap in, too (just because I had it and figured it wouldn't hurt). I'll never buy Windex again! No streaks and crystal-clear windows!
One pinner said "BEST soap scum remover!!" Make a vinegar "gel" by thickening vinegar with cornstarch. The vinegar CLINGS to what ever you spray it on...thus gives it more time to work. A little detergent cuts grease. Heat 1 cup of vinegar and 1 T corn starch in the microwave for 2 minutes. Add 2 T dish detergent and put it in a spay bottle. Spray. Wait 1hr. Wipe. Rinse. #homemade #cleaning
Add orange peels (or any citrus peel) to a quart of white vinegar in a closed container and let it set for two weeks. Combine citrus/vinegar solution half/half with water and use for cleaning. Works on floors, tile, fixtures, etc. Smells good and is tough on scum! Best of all there are no chemicals.
