Shower Mildew & Scum Remover

Use this affordable and effective solution for cleaning shower mildew and scum!


  • Liquid dish soap
  • White vinegar
  • Spray bottle
  • Microfiber cloth or other cleaning cloth
  • Water
  • Funnel or measuring cup


  1. Heat the Vinegar. In a microwave-safe dish (ideally a measuring cup with a spout), heat a quarter-cup of vinegar until it is extremely hot. Be very careful not to burn yourself.
  2. Mix Your Solution. Carefully add the vinegar to a spray bottle. If you weren’t able to use a measuring cup with a spout, use a funnel so you don’t burn yourself. Add in a quarter-cup of liquid dish soap and carefully swirl or shake it to mix. You can adjust the recipe depending on your needs – however, it can’t be stored (due to requiring hot vinegar), so it’s a good idea to start small and add more if necessary.
  3. Spray the Solution. Thoroughly spray all affected surfaces. They should be completely coated, and the solution should not be runny.
  4. Wait for Solution to Set. Allow the solution to sit for at least 30 to 45 minutes, or overnight if possible.
  5. Rinse. Using a cloth and water, rinse the solution. If your shower has a detachable head, this would be a great time to use it.
