How to make a homemade shower cleaning spray
Combine in a spray bottle:
2 cups of warm water
1/2 cup of baking soda
1 cup of vinegar
1/2 cup of dish soap
‘My favourite mix of all time. Its awesome on the glass doors too!’ one woman said.
‘I’ve used this mixture without the baking soda for the last several years to clean everything! It gets ink out and stains that are hard to get out. I found if you heat it for 30-50 seconds it works even better,’ explained another.
‘Do you think this also helps with mould in the shower?’ one fan asked.
‘Yes, vinegars really good for getting rid of mould,’ Carolina responded.

‘I found that mixing vinegar in a bottle with about 1/8 dish soap works a treat,’ responded a viewer’ while another suggested: ‘Skip the baking soda. Vinegar and dawn are great together’.
