Ready to get one thing off your list of chores? I promise this shower cleaning tip will change your life. Because I show you how to clean your shower every time you take a shower!
I’m not really into cleaning. Sure, I do get a kick out of a clean room. I might even go as far as saying: I enjoy the physical act of transforming something dirty into something clean.
But on the whole, I could live very happily if someone else took care of cleaning for me.
I’m a sucker for cleaning tips that reduce the time I spend cleaning!
In this article, I will show how you can clean your shower while showering yourself. In less than five minutes. And naturally.
The best shower cleaning tip
A few years ago, I stumbled upon one of the most life-changing discoveries in terms of cleaning and I have never looked back.
I love how easy and inexpensive it is. And I can stay calm if the toddler decides that it’s time to lick the shower wall. So, here’s the trick:
Keep a soap dispensing sponge in your shower, filled with a simple DIY cleaning mixture!
And start cleaning while you’re in there anyway. Waiting for your conditioner to do its thing.
Rinse off before you get your conditioner out and voilá – both you and your shower are sparkling clean! And it’s one thing you don’t even have to put on your cleaning checklist…
How to use the shower cleaning tip
Get a dishwashing sponge or brush with a fillable handle. Instead of dish soap, though, you’re going to fill it with a DIY mixture for shower cleaning.
This is what you’ll need:
- 2 Tbsp dish soap
- 2 Tbsp white vinegar
- 1-2 drops of your favorite essential oil, e.g. lemon (optional)
Since dish soap is designed to be in contact with skin, it is perfectly safe to use while you are in the shower yourself.
This mild cleaning agent combined with vinegar is powerful enough to remove grime and hard water stains. For little nooks and crannies , I like to keep a brush around.
If you want to go all natural, simply replace the dish soap with liquid soap nuts soap.
The Simple Balance Tip
To make refilling even easier, use an empty cleaning bottle and label it. Fill it with 1 cup of dish soap and 1 cup of white vinegar.
Gently mix the two and add 10 drops of your favorite essential oil. Now you refill your sponge even more quickly.
Find yourself in the shower but ran out of mixture? Simply add a little of your shower gel to the sponge!
Notes about this tip
This little magic brush in my bathroom has other perks, too:
- It’s super handy for a quick wipe through the sink or bathtub.
- Kids love cleaning with it.
- And even husbands are more likely to use it when there’s a “gadget”… 😉
If you are using this on tiles regularly, you may want to dilute the vinegar as it could potentially destroy the adhesive between the tiles. I’ve used it for years, though, and haven’t had any issues.
Extra tip: These sponges tend to leak the contents of the handle slowly if the sponge end is hanging down. So store it with the sponge facing up. Or simply build a loop with a cable binder and hang it up.
So go ahead and prepare your little shower cleaning helper.
See what it’s like to clean your shower while showering in less than five minutes.
I’d be very much surprised if you didn’t love it as much as I do.
It’s just one less thing to think about.
