Showers can get nasty. You have to deal with soap scum, grout stains, and water spots that can leave you feeling like you’re dirtier when you get out of the shower than before you got in! And none of us want to use harsh chemicals to bring back that sparkle. This homemade shower cleaner utilizes the power of oxyboost and stain-fighting enzymes to really deep clean and makes your shower feel new again!
Recommended Ingredients for Shower Cleaner
Most traditional shower cleaners are packed full of harsh, toxic chemicals that while they may get the shower clean, are terribly toxic and harmful to your body. They can be absorbed into your skin and inhaled while using them, as well as long after you’ve finished cleaning. I love that the ingredients in my homemade shower cleaner are safe and natural and that they don’t make me choke when I’m cleaning the shower. They’re also safe for the septic system and the environment. It’s literally worry-free.
I’m sure there are other brands of oxy cleaners and enzymes to fight stains, but I’m partial to the OxyBoost Brightener and Enzyme Stain Remover from TrulyFree. This company works super hard to bring us naturally safe products and Dr. Z and I have partnered with them because we believe in their mission. Check them out here!
