Okay so my Darling Husband and I are sick of green cleaning products that don’t work that well. I need something that will cut through shower scum and really clean in the bathroom. Any suggestions? We don’t want to be using super harsh chemicals because its terrible for the environment, but we don’t want a dirty shower either. Anyone have suggestions?

I find that the Mrs. Meyers stuff works great; if it’s a tougher stain I just give it a little bit of time to “sit” on the grime before I wipe. I’m not sure if it really makes a difference, but it seems to.
I do have to put some elbow grease into it, but I expect that with products that don’t have the harsher chemicals in them. I try to do it once a week so that it’s an easy clean.

Have you tried a mixture of baking soda and white vinegar to clean the bath/shower? It takes more elbow grease than something like Comet, but it does work. To be honest though, I usually do Comet about half the time and baking soda/vinegar half the time because I’m lazy. I figure it at least cuts my footprint in half 🙂
I’ve heard that this method from Martha Stewart works really well but I haven’t tried it yet:
“This is a nontoxic but effective way to clean your tub: Add one teaspoon of liquid soap and several drops of an antibacterial essential oil (such as tea tree, eucalyptus, rosemary, or peppermint) to one cup of baking soda. Add just enough water to form a paste, and use it with a sponge or brush to scour bathtub surfaces.”
