Works-For-Me Wednesday: Homemade Shower Cleaner

Woo-hoo - Works-For-Me Wednesday is back!

My husband found a recipe for shower cleaner about a year ago (he doesn't remember where). We love it! The daily shower sprays in the store are not cheap. This recipe is not only frugal (yay), but I think it works better than the sprays I have purchased from the store. It keeps mildew away and keeps the glass clear.

We mix it up in an empty spray bottle and my handy smart hubby made marks on the bottle to show how far to fill each ingredient (kind of like making dressing in the cruet - lol). Here it is:

2 cups distilled white vinegar
1/2 cup Jet Dry
1 teaspoon dish soap

If you like a scent, you could add a bit of an essential oil, but we don't bother. The vinegar smell goes away in a short time.

This shower cleaner works for us! For many more great tips, stop by Works-For-Me Wednesday at Rocks In My Dryer.


  1. If you don't mind me asking, what exactly is Jet Dry. I've been looking for a good everyday shower cleaner and I'm wondering if I can get the equivalent in NI.

  2. I am so going to have to try that.
    Thanks for posting Lisa.

  3. But no water in this??? hummmm, sounds like something I could make and use. I like this really well. The vinegar smell does not bother me at all, but I do wonder about the teaspoon of dish soap, is it to help make it "stick" to the surface a little better?

    do you have the recipe for making whites whiter? I used to know it, but just can not remember it any more. It was a soaking mixture of dish washer soap, bleach, and something else, I just can't you know what I am talking about? Any one out there no this concauction(sp?)???? thanks

  4. That's an interesting combo. I read the back of one of those shower spray bottles and it had alcohol in it (which if you as me is strange, but it must work) I like the idea of vinegar much better. Thanks for the recipe

  5. I've added Jet Dry to my next shopping list, and my shower thanks you!

  6. That's great that your hubby takes an interest in the household stuff. I'll have to write that one down and try it!


  7. Thanks for visiting my blog, and now I can see that we could get along quite well. I see that right here on the first page of your blog you have chocolate, and coffee, and a nifty-thrify not-so-caustic cleaning product! As well as cute kiddos and a love for Jesus--what could be better? (Except for the fact that we share the same first name! ha!) Blessings to you, thanks for sharing. Lisa from

  8. Interesting combination. I will have to try it. Thanks for posting!

  9. Ok, this is so up my alley. I am going to make and see how it WFM. I am such the vinegar cleaning girl. Easy and cheap... need we say more?!! Thanks for stopping by and commenting as well. See you again soon.

  10. Thank you for this wonderful idea; I can't wait to try it!

  11. I'm definitely going to try this. Just yesterday I was cleaning my shower thinking that there had to be something better than the Tilex I was using. I could feel my brain cells dying from the fumes.

  12. Wow, I would have never guessed jet dry! I'll have to try this ...

  13. I will have to give this a try! Thanks for sharing it; I always have trouble with hard water spots :o
