It's Saturday, chore day at Camp Wander and why I haven't shared my secret weapon for a shiny, sanitized loo with you is beyond me! Oh. My. Gosh. I love this simple no scrub formula and you'll have NO idea how much I love it until you make your own. It's so easy, so affordable and....ding, ding, ding...antimicrobial! The world changed with a post from one of my sisters, the DIY Diva sister, creator of One Good Thing by Jillee whom I unselfishly share with the world because I'm nice like that har har. Wrap your head around this, there are only TWO ingredients, no scrubbing and it's CHEAP. P.S. As the eldest sister, it's likely I'll add my own twist, ok very likely. Just a few drops of pure essential oils for a clean beyond good measure, perfection I tell you! Here's an idea for a neat spray bottle that your essential oils will be happy in... Next time you're at the market buy several one-quart glass bottles of white vinegar (Heinz) and top with Dollar Store spray bottle tops when empty - they're my favorite! I pour a 1/2 cup in my dishwasher and into every wash load for a green fabric softener, I have no problem emptying vinegar bottles! There's joy in this kind of clean :)

Will certainly try this as just today I was thinking what I could do to better clean our Loo without using commercial cleaner! Thanks, timing is everything some times.
Awesome, i will be trying this soon!
Does this solution have to be hot every time you use it?
Oh you know I’m trying this one! No scrubbing??? I’m in for sure.
Hi I love all your posts and have tried many of them….. THANKYOU. However here in the UK we can’t get the “blue dawn dish soap” in fact we can’t get any dawn dish soap, so my question is, is there anything else I can use instead?? Its frustrating knowing of all these great ideas and I can’t get them. Many thanks in advance
No scrubbing??? You have just made my day!!! I use vinegar formany things and use Dawn for dishes but will be making this tomorrow!!! My husband & two sons love using the foam hand soap that I make with Dawn & water.
How much weight of 2 cups white vinegar ? Example : 2 cups white…. = 24 oz or 24 ml?
Vinegar and Dawn ar my two favs in cleaning and sanitizing but I used them separately until now. Thanks for this recipe ~ you made my day!!! I will be mixing this tomorrow and gladly adding the EOs!
Have been using a recipe of dawn and vinegar for a while and yes IT DOES WORK! I will be adding eo’s since reading this. Thanks!
You can use Fairy. :)
Andrea, I use seventh generation dish soap and vinegar and get the same results. I can’t use Dawn because it has too many chemicals in it that I’m highly allergic to. You really can use any dish soap and get the same results. Don’t use castile soap as the 2 together will void each other out.
I have also used straight lemon essential oil on a rag and rubbed down all the surfaces until the scum and hard water stains are removed. While this can take some time I have kept my shower free of hard water and scum for months. All I have to do to maintain is mix 3 cups of warm water with 1 teaspoon of soap. I’ll spray my shower down and come back 20 mins later to rinse, all done. I also have a cleaning service and we clean many showers and tubs each day. Hope this helps!!
It simply helps thin out the Dawn, I only add hot water half the time and it still works great!
I was wondering the same thing about using the hot mix? Does a hot solution help in the cleaning?
Easy recipe and, no scrubbing? I"m in! Love the idea of buying the vinegar in glass bottles to reuse. Thanks for that tip too!
Sorry Paula I just saw your question. I use either the castile or seventh generation for the 1 tsp of soap. I never use dawn, ever. If you go on line and look at the ingredients you wouldn’t want to bathe in those chemicals you just sprayed all over your shower/tub. I also don’t like the animal testing they do, pouring this down a poor animals throat proves nothing in my opinion. P&G is one of the worst.
For your “maintain” recipe, are you mixing the 3 cups warm water with a teaspoon of which soap?… Dawn or Castille? I’m guessing Dawn but want to be sure.
Just tried it, works great. I never thought the bathtub or the fixtures would shine again. My husband uses a half bar of soap every time he showers, which is everyday. I tried so many things that never worked. Love your site. Thanks.
2 cups is 48ml or 16oz
