Because my shower is not a pretty sight!! I have a bottle of Clean Shower in my shower... with DUST on it, y'all!! So I'm all about getting some soap scum off. However, I wasn't really sure it would work on my shower curtain. The original pin showed this magic on a shower stall. But I figured it couldn't hurt to try it once. If it doesn't work, I will just go buy a new shower curtain. That sure beats taking the shower curtain down and throwing it in the washer, or soaking in the tub... both of which I have tried before with less than desirable results!
I am so embarrassed to actually be posting these pics! (BEFORE)
So, I gathered my ingredients (Vinegar, Blue Dawn, Spray Bottle)... and couldn't find a spray bottle (I almost used the half gone bottle of Clean Shower). But I found a handy little squirt bottle and just hoped that it would work.
I'm cheap, so I didn't want to use a whole cup of Dawn, and the squirt bottle only holds 8 oz. So my recipe was 4 oz of HOT vinegar (microwave it in a glass cup for 1-2 minutes) pour into bottle and add 4 oz of Dawn. I squirted it on and left it over night... It ran.... which resulted in streaks... :(
Got up in the morning, grabbed my scrub brush and turned on the shower and wiped it down and scrubbed... It's not very easy to scrub a shower curtain... I think I might just be buying a new shower curtain!
But my bathtub was definitely showing some signs of the cleaner working, but in streaks! So I took a picture and realized that I couldn't be that real on my blog... I couldn't show you how DISGUSTING my bathtub was, even after cleaning... the bathtub my kids JUST took showers/baths in last night!
So, I decided to forgo the shower curtain... and add it to my shopping list, but the TUB, that still needed some help! So I added the super power Baking Soda!! a little more Dawn (because I can't bear to use a lot) and some more HOT vinegar, just hoping and praying and wishing and dreaming that the 1970's green tub would look like new again!! :)
I have to admit, I had to put a whole lot more elbow grease into this project then I
Here is the end result... definitely an improvement, but still not great!
But hey, you win some, you lose some! I will still be browsing Pinterest for the "easy button" of house cleaning! :) Do you have any great recommendations for the bathroom cleaning?!?! (It has to be easy, because I'm lazy in this department!)
side note: my house smells like vinegar now!
