Soap-Scum Removal Trick


You know how hard it is to wipe off the soap buildup on shower stalls, unless you use a harsh chemical solvent that’s rough on the lungs. Use this handy pantry item instead…

Spray the shower-door glass with cooking spray and leave for 30 minutes. The oil “slides” between the scum and the glass, making it easy to wipe away. Clean off the oil with a vinegar-water spray solution (mix one-half cup hot water with one-half cup white vinegar in a spray bottle) and a damp sponge or rag. Your shower doors will sparkle!

Note: Be sure to wipe off any residual oil off your shower floor or bathtub with a clean, dry towel so you (or other showerers) don’t slip.
