Favorite Natural Cleaning Product Recipes?

Asking for help ladies :-) I need to find a  good natural cleaning product recipe for my glass shower! I have been experimenting with baking soda, vinegar, tea tree oil and Dr. Bronner's Hemp Almond Pure Castile Soap. However, it's still not cutting the soap scum completely in my glass shower and leaves a film no matter how much water I use to rinse it off. It also leaves bad water spots! Maybe I'm using the right products, but not just the right ratios? I'm just kind of dumping in what I think in a dish each time I clean and use it. I wanted to check with you all to see if you had a favorite recipe that works well for a glass shower or if you have any other recipes or links you'd like to share. Once I find the one that works for me I will be sure to share it with you!

I do have one favorite natural cleaning recipe I love using and it's so simple!
Glass Cleaner: Fill a spray bottle with half water and half white vinegar. Add several drops of tea tree oil and shake well. The tea tree oil totally takes out the vinegar smell and leaves a yummy scent (not strong like tea tree oil at all!). Tea tree oil is also a disinfectant. I have been using this recipe for a while now and love it. Cleans glass great with no streaks!

Nothing smells better than using natural cleaning products :-)

Thanks for your help ladies!

I am going to try that! I honestly don't have any idea, especially since I don't have a glass shower door, just a flimsy plastic curtain. I hope you find something that works though.

I love tea tree oil. And Eucalyptus Oil. Eucalyptus oil keeps spiders away!

Thanks for sharing. I am sorry, I don't have any. I am using Eco-Store's products right now.

Did you still want to Guest Post on Sunday? If not just let me know. Thanks! :D Oh and thanks for the comment love.

I use my own cleaners in the kitchen, but in the bathroom I use either Ecover or Seventh Generation. Here's a neat trick I learned for the glass shower: after you clean it with your soap scum cleaner, wipe it down with glass cleaner and then put a coat of lemon oil on it. I use Old English, make sure to rub it in really well. This works soooooo well, the door stays streak free for at least a few weeks!
