Remember those weird spray contraptions that would automatically spray down your shower daily so you never had to clean it again? They were crazy expensive and the smell was disgusting, but I thought the idea of never cleaning again was pretty great. So I played around and crafted this Daily Shower Cleaner recipe, and I’m pretty sure it’s just as good.
I’m sure you’ve noticed my new love affair with Sal Suds. It’s a really versatile cleaner that rinses clean even in hard water. We use it all over our home in our:
Sal Suds is all natural and even more powerful than pure Castile soap (which you can use for household cleaning, but we love it more for our beauty recipes like foaming hand soap and foaming face wash).
This recipe also relies heavily on the cleaning power of vinegar. Distilled white vinegar has a long history of being an inexpensive, non-toxic, and effective multipurpose household cleaner. You’ll love the way it gets rid of any odors, too.
From one of our awesome readers, June:
Tea Tree and Thieves essential oils combine to pack a cleaning punch in this Daily Shower Cleaner. Tea Tree includes the naturally occurring constituents terpinene-4-ol, gamma terpinene, and alpha-terpinene. Thieves essential oil delivers a warm and energizing scent, plus extra cleaning power.

Daily Shower Cleaner
- 1 cup distilled water
- 1 cup distilled white vinegar
- 2 teaspoons Dr. Bronner’s Sal Suds Organic Cleaner
- 10 drops Tea Tree Essential Oil
- 10 drops Thieves Essential Oil
- Add the water and white vinegar to a 16 oz amber glass spray bottle. (The dark spray bottle keeps the oils from being altered by light.)
- Pour in the Sal Suds Cleaner and the essential oils.
- Replace the spray lid and swirl to combine.
- To use: After you shower, spray this onto the walls and door of your shower. Allow spray to sit for 2 minutes before rinsing.

Note: This spray should not be used on natural stone because the vinegar could harm the surface.
