If you deal 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. You can use a pre-mixed daily shower spray or make your own. I’m sharing my recipe with you today – it smells fresh and clean in the shower, keeps soap scum and mildew away, and is super easy to mix up and use.

Using a daily shower spray will keep soap scum and mildew at bay and make it easier to clean your shower. Start with a clean shower first and then use the daily shower spray to keep scum and mildew away.

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!


  • 1/2 cup vodka (you can use rubbing alcohol but I find that the vodka works better in this recipe)
  • 1 cup water
  • 10 drops essential oil – I love the Calm Home Blend for the bathroom – it’s lavender euclayptus and smells like a spa
  • glass spray bottle
  • measuring cup

Mix and store in a spray bottle. Spray shower or tub daily after showering has occurred. No rinsing or wiping is necessary. You can find the pictured label and spray bottle here in my shop. The cloth pictured is part of my Cleaning Cloth Kit and has a scrubbing side and a polishing side – perfect for getting tough soap scum or other tough spots in your home.

Optional: Use a shower squeegee after spraying at the end of your shower to remove excess water and to prevent water spots.
