Are you looking for a way to have a clean shower or bathtub without resorting to using harmful chemicals? By using two ingredients you already have in your home you can create a shower cleaner that will clean your shower and be safe for the environment and yourself.

Shower Cleaner


¼ cup baking soda
2 Tbsp. liquid soap
few drops of essential oils

Place the baking soda in a small bowl. Slowly mix in your liquid soap with a fork until the mixture is the consistency of cake frosting. Add a few drops of your favorite essential oil such as lavender, grapefruit or balsam; what ever you want to make your cleaner smell divine.

Scoop a small amount of the mixture onto a damp sponge or cloth. Wipe the surface of the shower or bathtub and rinse.

That’s all there is to it. Just repeat until the shower surface has all been cleaned. Your bathroom will smell wonderful, the shower and or tub will be clean and you have not used any harmful chemicals to get this chore completed.

Are you looking for new ways to do the various cleaning chores without using chemicals that are bad for you and the environment? I also make a Non-Toxic Oven Cleaner, which work so well. No need to use the self-cleaning feature on your stove or a spray cleaner.

Homemade window washer fluid is so easy to make and I really think it does a much better job than any commercial mixture I’ve found.

I used to make my own all-purpose cleaner until I switched to Thieves cleaner.  I buy a 14.4oz bottle of Thieves Household Cleaner, which is a concentrate. I mix up my own solution of 1 part cleaner and 30 parts water and it does an excellent job of keeping the counters clean. My 14.4oz bottle lasts me for months. The Thieves cleaner contains 100% pure, therapeutic-grade essential oil.

What do you use in your home to keep things clean?
