If you’re frustrated with soap scum in the shower and/or find that weekly or bi-weekly cleaning isn’t enough to keep your shower clean, you might want to add a Daily Shower Spray to your cleaning regimen. This is one of the easiest and most effective DIY I’ve concocted and it’s a fraction of the price of a store-bought daily shower spray. The DIY Daily Shower Spray smells fresh and clean in the shower, keeps soap scum and mildew away, and is super easy to mix up and use.

DIY Daily Shower Spray

With just 3 ingredients, this DIY Daily Shower Spray is my secret to a clean and scum free shower. I hope you try it!


  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup vodka (you can use rubbing alcohol but I find that the vodka works better in this recipe)
  • 10 drops essential oil – I love the Fresh Home Blend for this recipe – it’s a sweet mint scent with Spearmint, Peppermint, and Vanilla
  • glass spray bottle
  • measuring cup

Mix and store in a spray bottle. Shake before using and spray shower or tub daily after showering. Rinsing or wiping is not necessary but you can use a squeegee or a sponge after spraying. Experiment to see what works best for your bathroom. This DIY recipe will last for up to a month.
