This hack for cleaning the shower includes an easy recipe using ingredients you probably have in your cupboards already. If cleaning the shower is one of your least favorite jobs, like me, this is about to make your work a whole lot easier.
This shower cleaning hack makes it easy for kids to help clean the shower too. If you are wanting more ideas for getting kids to clean the bathroom correctly, I think you will love this idea.
Hack for Cleaning the Shower
The biggest component of this shower cleaning hack is to have a scrubber like the one you would normally use for dishes. This should remain in the shower at all times.
Here’s an Amazon link to a heavy duty dish sponge wand that holds cleaning detergent. This is just like scrubber I use for my own shower.
The next tip for this shower cleaning hack involves a homemade shower cleaner recipe. This 2 ingredient recipe will be added to the portion of the scrubbing brush that holds the soap.
Homemade Shower Cleaner Recipe
With only a couple ingredients, this shower cleaning recipe is so easy to make. I’m guessing you won’t need to shop since these are typical household supplies, but I’ll provide Amazon affiliate links just in case.
This recipe makes the perfect amount to fit inside the cleaning wand I shared with you earlier.
Mix these two shower cleaning ingredients in a liquid measuring cup so it’s easy to pour into your cleaning scrubber.
Simply stir the Dawn and the vinegar together and pour into the bottom of your cleaning sponge wand. Twist on the cap, and you are done making the shower cleaner recipe.
How to Implement this Hack for Cleaning the Shower
The implementation is simple. Keep this cleaning brush in the shower. Whenever, the job needs doing, have you or one of your kids clean the shower while taking the shower.
It’s so much easier to take five minutes to scrub the shower while you are taking a shower than to get all the cleaning supplies out when you are not in that mode.
I love that we have a hand held shower head to make this job even more easy. Alternatively, have a plastic water pitcher in the shower for rinsing away the soap bubbles.
I hope that helps make shower cleaning time easier, faster and more effective.
