DIY Peppermint Daily Shower Spray

If you deal with soap scum in the shower and/or find that weekly or bi-weekly cleaning isn’t enough to keep your shower clean, you might want to add a daily shower spray to your cleaning regimen. You can use a pre-mixed daily shower spray or make your own. I’m sharing my recipe with you today – it smells fresh and clean in the shower, keeps soap scum and mildew away, and is super easy to mix up and use.

Using a daily shower spray will keep soap scum and mildew at bay and make it easier to clean your shower.  Start with a clean shower first and then use the daily shower spray to keep scum and mildew away.

Peppermint Daily Shower Cleaner Spray

1/2 cup vodka (you can use rubbing alcohol but I find that the vodka works better in this recipe)
1 cup water
10 drops peppermint essential oil
glass spray bottle

Mix and store in a spray bottle.  Spray shower or tub daily after showering has occurred.  No rinsing necessary.  Optional: Use a squeegee at the end of your shower to remove excess water and to prevent water spots.

  4. Love this ! Smells awesome!! Thank You for sharing n I love your blog too 🍃🌸🍃

  5. This might be a silly question…do you squeegee first and then spray? Or vice versa?

  6. Cristina says:

    Squeegee first or spray first for a shower door?

  7. Sounds great – can you use a plastic bottle? Glass sounds tricky in the shower.

    • You can use plastic but just watch it with the essential oil – it can ‘eat’ away at the plastic 🙂

  8. Is this safe for natural stone? I see that there is no vinegar, but wanted to double check. Thank You.

  9. Christin says:

    Is this safe for marble? I would love to hear your thoughts on keeping mold and mildew off marble and its grout!

  10. Does this keep the faucets nice and shiny as well?

  11. If one were to using rubbing alcohol instead of vodka, what concentration works best? Thanks!

  12. Genevieve says:

    Does it matter what vodka is used ? Thanks!

  13. Hi Becky,
    Do I squeegee the whole shower after spraying, or just the glass door?

  14. Can other essential oil scents be used instead like lemon?

  15. HI!

    We have turbo hardwater where we live, is distilled water safe in this recipe ? Just as effective ?

  16. Can anything be added to it to prevent water spots?
