How to Make a Shower Cleaner

Many people use shower cleaners each time after they have had a shower to keep the shower stall clean and tidy. Although, the commercial shower cleaners reduce the labour requiring to clean a shower area, they can be expensive and some of them even toxic in large applications. A homemade cleaner could be just as efficient in keeping your shower shining, and on top of that, it is inexpensive and non-toxic solution.

To make your own shower cleaner, St John's Wood cleaners suggest the following steps:
  1. Mix 1 tablespoon of liquid dish-washing detergent, 4 tablespoons of dishwasher rinsing agent, and 3 cups of rubbing alcohol into a gallon bucket. Add 3 quarts of water to the bucket, and use a suitable utensil, such as a large spoon, to stir the mixture thoroughly.
  2. Add ½ cup of hydrogen peroxide into a clean, spray bottle, and fill the rest of the bottle with your cleaning solution. Do not make a large amount of this solution, as the hydrogen peroxide quickly lose its active properties and the solution won't be useful after several days.
  3. Apply the solution to the surfaces of your shower stall, and wait for a few minutes before wiping it off. Use a squeegee, large sponge or a scrub brush to wipe the surface.
  4. St John's Wood cleaners advise you to spray a small amount of the hydrogen peroxide solution onto the shower surfaces every time you get out to keep it clean for a long period of time.
