Everyday Cheapskate: Make Your Own Tub, Tile and Shower Cleaners

Mary Hunt on

The only thing better than making things myself is when what I make turns out to be cheaper, better and faster than something I could buy in the store to accomplish the same goal. That makes me so happy!

Dear Mary: I love, love, love the homemade Tub and Shower Soap Scum Remover. It works better than any product I have ever used. Our tubs and showers have never looked so good! Now, I would love to know how to make my own daily shower cleaner -- the kind you just spray and walk away from for daily tub and shower maintenance between cleanings. Any ideas? - Polly

Dear Polly: Yes! I'm confident this is the recipe you're looking for.


1/2 cup hydrogen peroxide

1/2 cup rubbing alcohol

1 teaspoon liquid dishwashing soap (like blue Dawn)

1 tablespoon dishwasher rinse aid (like Jet-Dry)

2 cups water

Pour all of the ingredients into a 24-ounce spray bottle. Mix gently. Each day before you step out of the shower, spray the walls and then walk away.
