I saw a pin on Pinterest where she used hot white vinegar and Dawn to clean the tub. She let it set an hour or two and then wiped it down. Clean tub with no scrubbing? Yes please! So I got around to trying this out a couple weeks ago. So is this pin really pin worthy? YES! It worked for me.
The link to the pin isn't working for me anymore but here is what you need to do...
Vinegar and Dawn DIY tub cleaner
Heat ½ Cup white vinegar in the microwave For 90 Seconds, let it cool a bit so you don't melt your pray bottle then pour it into the spray bottle. Add ½ Cup Dawn dish soap. She said the blue (original) Dawn needed to be used but I looked through my stockpile and went with the orange antibacterial Dawn. I wanted the orange fresh scent left behind instead of vinegar or blue Dawn. I wasn't sure what the smell was going to be like so I wanted the more fresh scent so I am guessing that any variety of Dawn would work. Shake up your closed spray bottle gently to mix. Spray on the surface you want cleaned in my case the shower/tub and let It sit 1-2 hours. Once it has set, just wipe it away, then rinse with water. No scrubbing needed and I seriously did not scrub a thing in my tub. Just wiped it with a damp sponge. This vinegar and Dawn DIY tub cleaner should also remove soap scum from shower doors. I sprayed everything, top to bottom, the fixtures and all. It all came clean and was smelling fresh. I am sure this vinegar and Dawn DIY tub cleaner could be used on so much more to clean. I know it works on removing Gak from hair too 😉

This product does work!!!!! I would like to know if anyone knows how to rinse the shower out if you don’t have spray attachments other than throwing buckets of water on the shower and glass. I need to get all the dawn off so it does not leave soap spots in the glass which is two sides of my shower.
When my kids use this to clean their shower they use a cup and rinse the tub with water that way.
