Heat the vinegar in the microwave for 1 minute. Pour both ingredients into a plastic spray bottle and spray evenly over the tub. Warning: it stinks.In 30 minutes to 1 hour, come back and use a cleaning rag to wipe away all the grime. Wipe, not scrub. Really!If you don’t believe me, just look at these photos:
Score! I did not scrub one tiny bit and my tub is sparkling white. The pictures just don’t do it justice. I could actually see the line down the middle where the solution touched the tub. Look:
And no scrubbing! Really… I just wiped the grime away!
Is it safe to mix vinegar and Dawn dish soap?
Yes! Mixing Dawn and vinegar is completely safe. And it works wonders on soap scum! I really can’t say enough good things about this easy homemade cleaner.A few other notes…
You can use other brands of dish soap. They work okay. But blue Dawn is still the best I’ve found.
P.S. Did you know they sell cleaning grade vinegar? I found mine at Wal-Mart by the other multi-purpose cleaners. It’s cheaper than food grade vinegar and is perfect for jobs like this.
Still skeptical? I let my tub build up grime for two months just to make a video to show you exactly how amazing this stuff is. Why? Because when you find something this good, you have to share it with everyone!
