Pinterest Challenge - Week 19: So Fresh and So Clean Clean!

This awesome pinterest idea has made my life much easier!  For cleaning your shower...fill a scrub brush with half dish soap and half vinegar and clean while you are taking a shower.  Our new house has sliding glass shower doors in the master bathroom that are pretty much impossible to clean unless you are standing in the shower.  This new method makes cleaning the shower easy-peasy!

Fill with 1/2 dish soap 1/2 vinegar
