With my new home, however, there's one more cleaner that I find I am using up very quickly. I'll give you a guess where I use it:
Yes! In that BIG shower! I'm going through at least 2 bottles/month!
To Make Fake Clean Shower:
1 Empty Spray Bottle (I used an old Clean Shower bottle)
1 Tablespoon Jet-Dry (or similar Dishwasher Rinse Agent)
2 Tablespoons Dish Detergent
1/4 Cup Hydrogen Peroxide
1/4 Cup Rubbing Alcohol
Fill the rest of the bottle with water and shake!
A few notes:
1. The Rinse Agent & Dish Detergent take care of hard water problems.
2. The Peroxide & Alcohol take care of soap scum, bacteria & mold.
3. The smell of my mix isn't as "fresh" as the original, but it is a clean smell that dissipates quickly.
4. Bottom Line: It works! I've been using it daily for a month, and there is not a spot of mold, mildew or hard water in my shower.
I hope you'll try it and save!
