Clean Microwave…Clean Shower?

A few weeks ago I wrote a post about how to clean your microwave. Do you remember it? If not check it out here.  Since then, my microwave has looked great! The other day I made the decision to tackle our bathtub/shower.  This is a job I despise-my arm always hurts afterwards from all the scrubbing and it never really looks “clean”. Ugh. As I was preparing to clean it, I had a thought. What if I used the same method that I used on the microwave on my shower? It should work, right? Well, anything was better than a sore arm, so I gave it a try.  First I sprayed a mixture of white vinegar and water over the entire surface of my shower. Then I put the plug in, closed the curtain and ran the hottest water I could for about 7-10 minutes, checking on it periodically just in case it got too full. When that was done, I pulled the plug and started to scrub.  It was going okay, grime was coming off, but I still had to use too much elbow grease.  I remembered that baking soda does a great job of cutting  through dirt, so I sprinkled some all over the shower and tub. I let it sit for a minute and then started wiping with my sponge. It. Was. Amazing!  All of the grime came right off, with very little elbow work involved! I was thrilled!  Interested in trying it yourself? Let me know how it works for you!
