I like daily shower spray. It’s quick, it’s easy, and it keeps me from having to scrub my shower like a fifties housewife (you know, big yellow gloves, hair in a bandanna, etc.).
What I don’t like is spending my hard-earned cash on a new bottle of chemicals every month. Bad for my lungs AND my wallet. So when I was at the end of my bottle of Mrs. Meyer’s Daily Shower Spray, I decided it was time to make my own concoction.
I did a little browsing on the interweb and found a few different combination, but the mix below is what I ended up with (after a little tweaking). It works well, smells great and best of all, I can make it with things I pretty much always have on hand.
Homemade Daily Shower Spray
• 1/4 cup hydrogen peroxide
• 1/4 cup rubbing alcohol
• 3 drops dish-washing liquid
• 3 drops essential oil (I like lavender)
• 1 teaspoon liquid spot-free dishwasher rinse
• 12 oz. water
Combine in a spray bottle (I used my empty Mrs. Meyer’s bottle) and shake well. Spray daily after showering and enjoy not having to scrub-a-dub-dub nearly so often!
Note: Keep away from sunlight if you are using a light/clear spray bottle–sunlight causes the hydrogen peroxide to degrade, and makes it less effective as a cleaner.
