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.

If you’re looking for natural ways to clean your home and a new way to clean your home, you can find similar recipes in both of my books: Simply Clean and The Organically Clean Home.

  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 🙂
