Today I've been cleaning my showers and tub . . . which is my least favorite bathroom cleaning job ever! It always feels and looks SO good when it's done, but it's one of those jobs I put off for way too long, and then have to put a lot of elbow grease into, in order to get all the soap scum off. I'm sure the rest of you are super housekeepers and always keep your showers sparkling, but I have to admit that's not the case with me! :) Anyway, mine are sparkling now, and I just have to finish washing the curtains, drying them out on the line, and getting everything put back. Well, not everything . . . I had some empty shampoo & conditioner bottles that need to be thrown out. I'm sure I'm the only one who forgets to do that, too, right?! :) I have tried various shower cleaners over the years, and as I am trying to move toward more natural cleaners, today I went searching online for some ideas. I ended up using Dawn dishwashing liquid and also vinegar/water (which I use for windows and mirrors, also). It still took quite a bit of scrubbing, but this combo seemed to work well. (I scrubbed with Dawn first, then sprayed with vinegar and scrubbed more . . . then went over the whole thing with Dawn again.) I also used one of those blue Scotchbrite scrubbies that have the soap in them to tackle the worst of the scum, and I used Barkeeper's Friend to shine up the fixtures. Yay for a clean shower!
So, what's your least favorite bathroom chore? And what do you all use to keep your showers clean? Do you clean them daily? Weekly? Monthly? I'd love some inspiration! :)
