My homemade DIY shower spray is one of my favourite homemade cleaning recipes and considering how often our shower is used, it’s one of my most used cleaning products.
We have one shower in our house and it’s the shower in my en-suite bathroom and whilst I would prefer that the kids (and even the husband) refrained from using my little bathroom, I’ve had to accept that isn’t going to happen anytime soon – unless we have a bathroom redesign in the main bathroom to include a shower but that’s not looking likely. 😉
But I do have rules if the kids want to use the shower in my bathroom – they have to leave it looking like it did when they went in the which means no damp towels left on the floor, no toiletries left lying around and most importantly, it needs to be clean!
It took me long enough to get them to understand that it’s not my job to clean up the wet towels and I actually had to buy a cheap under sink cupboard for them to keep their shower toiletries in but getting them to clean the shower was a whole different matter.
That’s why I started making this easy to use DIY shower spray – now they can just give the shower area a good spray and that jobs done too! The shower spray doesn’t need wiping off once it’s been sprayed and it helps keep the shower looking clean and smelling good. Used after every shower it also keeps soap scum and mildew away which is always good!
As always, please remember to be a little bit cautious when using essential oils and always test on a small (preferably unseen) – I wrote a post here that I recommend reading. I even share where my collection of spray bottles are from. 😉
Homemade DIY Shower Spray
I do use vodka as the base for this recipe rather than vinegar because I find it does a much better job.
15 drops of peppermint essential oil
A plastic spray bottle – I’m not comfortable using a glass spray bottle in the bathroom.
- As with all of my cleaning recipes, this is super simple. It’s just a case of adding all the ingredients to your spray bottle and giving it a good shake-up.
- To use, just give the shower area and the shower screen a quick spray when you turn the shower off – there’s no need to wipe it away or do anything fancy.
I have ours in a nice spray bottle and actually hang it over the shower screen we have – simply because if it wasn’t in plain view it would always get forgotten about with my family!
