Sadly, I don’t have a cleaning lady. Oh, it would be so nice if I did!! I do however have a cleaning daughter. Well-that’s not exactly true. Let me put it this way. I have a daughter who is a poor college student. When she needs money, she offers to work for me. The thing I try so hard to get her to do is clean.
The shower had been badly neglected. Partly because I hate cleaning…and partly, I’ve just never found a product that I like and believe works on with our rusty water.
After she tried an ammonia based cleaner and got stunk out of the laundry/shower room, Kalissa googled on the internet and came up with this recipe for a shower cleaner. She found something on Pinterest that said to mix 1/2 cup of warmed vinegar and 1/2 a cup of blue dawn dish soap. It was MUCH less stinky than the ammonia and it used common household ingredients. Before she sprayed it. She shook the bottle. It sprayed on almost like foam. Some of the gunk melted off without even scrubbing.
After a bit of elbow grease, she had the shower shined up. A significant improvement from the before picture for sure! Well worth the money it took to hire a “cleaning daughter” for the day!
The picture doesn’t look as nice as it looks in person….I know we’ll be using this again. Hopefully more regularly too!!
..and that’s the story of my cleaning lady.
