This one cleans your tub/shower. I have a textured bottom and no matter what I have tried (bleach, plain baking soda, scouring powder...) it just didn't come clean. Then I found this site that claimed to have the cure to clean your stubborn shower scum.
So I thought I would give it a try.
The recipe calls for:
1/2 c. white vinegar
1/2 c. Original Blue Dawn Dish Soap
4 T. Baking Soda
Heat the vinegar in the microwave for about 90 seconds. Let it cool a few minutes. I began to add the baking soda a little at a time. There was too much foam so I added the soap and gave it a stir. Then I added the rest of the baking soda.
This made a bowl of foamy goodness.
Now I clean my shower every week and still have this gross looking bottom. Don't judge.
So I spread the mixture all over the bottom. I had to make another batch to cover the entire area.
Now you let it sit for two hours. When I came back and started to scrub it didn't seem to get all the crevasses so I smeared it around again and left it for another hour.
I took a scrub brush and gave it a good scrubbing. Some areas needed a bit more elbow grease than others, but it came clean.
This made me very happy. If you have a textured bath/shower. Give it try!
This next concoction is a grease cutter. When I fist saw it I thought a grease cutter that uses oil????? But it is AWESOME. You can read the blog post HERE.
The recipe is:
1 part vegetable oil
2 part baking soda
Mix it in a small bowl and grab an old toothbrush. The site claimed to get that greasy gunk off you cabinets. Since I have light colored cabinets, pictures really didn't show a change. But you could feel how clean the wood and knobs were after I scrubbed a bit. So I was thinking maybe it would work on my stove.
I have a stainless steel stove and it took all the little grease marks right off. It is a miracle cleaner! It also took off the black grease around the burners. It is a little messy but worth the extra clean up.
So there you have two easy cleansers that you whip up at home. Happy spring cleaning!
Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!
