I continue on my quest for the solution to never having to scrub my tub/shower again. This pin says that if you wipe everything down with a vinegar and Dawn combo while you’re still in there that it will stay clean. It sounds miraculous, which of course makes it a perfect pin for Pin Busting.
I filled my soap holding scrubber with Dawn first then added the vinegar. It’s hard to get them mixed so I would plan to fill it only maybe 2/3 full so that there is plenty of room for all the suds and to mix well, or just pre mix a bunch in something else so that you can just refill the scrubber easily. I had Green Apple scented Dawn so it was very easy to see how mixed it was but I would think that it would be a lot harder with clear soap.
I forgot to take a before picture but it turns out I didn’t have to! My tub and shower look just as clean after 1 week and then 2 weeks of using this method (almost) daily. I probably did it 6/7 days of the week. It only takes a minute or two when you’re finished your shower and it’s so much easier to get to everything because you’re already getting wet and standing in there as opposed to leaning in from outside and trying to stay dry. I did use it on the chrome fixtures which definitely decreased the look of water spots but I will probably still clean them with the water/vinegar combo I use when I do the sink fixtures.
Bottom line –DEFINITELY DO IT!
It turns out that this is mildly miraculous! I think if I keep it up my days of scrubbing may be over. It’s cheap and lasts a long time (after 2 weeks still half left). I wouldn’t recommend hanging the scrubber by a loop on the end because I bet the soap would drip out over time and look gross or be slippery or whatever. I had to finagle some zip ties to hang it so the scrubber was at the top. And definitely use a scented Dawn that you won’t mind smelling pretty intensely. I really didn’t notice the vinegar smell but the apple scent was much stronger in the hot shower than just when doing dishes. It doesn’t linger all day but while you’re in there it’s pretty strong. So if you’re at all interested in decreasing your scrubbing the bathroom time this is the way to do it! I’m beyond excited for that AND that I won’t have to deal with the horrible fumes of other cleaning products! WOOOOO HOOOOOO!
