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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
