Best Cleaner Ever!!

I LOVE Pinterest!!

I "Pin" just about daily. I have an app on my iPod, so I surf while in bed and look at all the wonderful, crafty things I can do with my "free time."

One of those pins is this cleaner over at Life, Crafts & Whatever.

Alright, so I'm in need of a good cleaner. We have HARD water around here. I have to break out the serious, heavy duty cleaners when I clean my bathrooms.

So I had eh, about a cup of Dawn left, and I heated up a cup of vinegar for 2 minutes. Be careful when you pour it into your bottle the plastic starts to expand and it moves a little on you. Then add the Dawn. Grab a pot holder and give it a good shake. Ooohhh, maybe you can shake it like a shake weight and add some exercise as well!!

Anyways, I took my bottle and headed upstairs to the main culprits. Exhibit A is the "Guest bathroom" this is uber cleaned whenever guests come over, and about once a week-ish cleaned other times. It is not a normally used bathroom. Although, our oldest has started to use it during the night which makes for some interesting cleaning.

Exhibit B is our Master bath. This is the tub/shower that is so big, the four of us take a family shower together (my kids are still little so it's ok), a vanity area, and DH's "reading room." The shower is sprayed after each shower or bath with a homemade refill of Scrubbing Bubbles Automatic Shower Cleaner and given a quick scrub while we are in the shower.

So I removed all necessary items from the counters, and squirted down everything with this cleaner. I let it set for a few minutes while I gathered my scrubbing supplies.


Is all I can say. This stuff is THE BOMB!! So you know those streak marks through the soap scum that all the other cleaners leave but don't get it entirely? Yep! GONE!!

Know that "hand print" your husband leaves on the back of the toilet wall that he uses to balance himself? Yep! GONE!!

Knot that icky yellow streak down the front of your toilet and around the base from having menfolk in the house? Yep! GONE!!

It looks like I spent HOURS cleaning each bathroom. I usually have to borrow my dads Black & Decker Scum Buster every six months or so to really get our tub clean.


This is my favorite cleaner and I can't wait to make some more!!! I need to go out and buy some more Dawn tonight because this stuff is awesome!!
