Mold-Killing Daily Shower Spray Recipe – Spray and Walk Away
(For stubborn mold and mildew problems)
This one uses hydrogen peroxide, which degrades quickly when exposed to light. To keep that from happening, mix it directly in the hydrogen peroxide bottle then screw a spray nozzle on.
1/4 cup hydrogen peroxide
1/4 cup rubbing alcohol
2-3 drops liquid dish detergent (like Dawn)
1 cup water
Glass Shower Door Protectant
Once you have cleaned and buffed your shower doors, put a coat of RAIN-X on them. This will keep soap scum and mineral deposits from building up and make the doors easy to clean. When the water quits beading up on the glass, it’s time to apply another coat. Buy Rain – X at home centers, auto stores, big box stores etc.
Remove Grease with Grease – Perfect for cupboard doors and backsplashes
When oil splatters on your cupboards or backsplash, it may seem crazy to use more oil to get it off. However, just like oil and water don’t mix, using a water-based spray won’t clean off the grease splatter. Instead, use a bit of cooking spray or an olive-oil-moistened paper towel to rub off the splatter. Wipe with a fresh cloth until the oily residue is no longer detected!
On a shiny surface you can use a little dish soap and warm water to wash and then buff dry.
