I hate cleaning the tubs and showers because they just never actually get clean. We have a “new” home-it’s considered old hahahahah where we live….9 years old. As I was saying our old house has gotten grimy…mainly because while I was busy in Massachusetts trying to get preggo with our Row we rented out our house and frankly no one will ever take care of your home the way you would. In less than a year our showers had dark rings on the base and for the life of me I couldn’t bleach them out.
Bring it on pinterest….I’ve been slowly decluttering and deep cleaning the house. I got through my closet. I’m now onto the bathroom attached to our closet and the shower was up.
I found several recipes and variations and made a decision to give it a go. I used equal parts BLUE dawn-notice it MUST BE BLUE…and white vinegar. I started with 1 cup of each-yes once cup of dish soap. I ran to Home Depot and got one of those major professional squirt bottles and felt important. Now mind you I would say about 90% of my friends have maids…so they don’t care about me and my trusty bottle but I must say it’s marvelous.
I heated one cup of vinegar for about 40 seconds in the microwave, poured it in the bottle, measured out my blue dawn, added it to the bottle and shook. I waited about 5 minutes.
I went in….
I left that shower drenched for an hour. Now loads of people say you can just wash it off but I took a dish sponge-filled the handle with water and scrubbed that baby.
By the power of Gray Skull it WORKED. I have NEVER been more shocked and surprised. It didn’t get everything off but I did it again the next day and bam that baby sparkles.
It was easy. It worked…enough said!
