Non-Toxic Living


I have used this homemade Shower Spray for years, and neither my shower stall nor my shower curtain liner have mildew on them! Before I started using this spray, my shower curtain liner needed to be replaced periodically. So I have saved money plus avoided breathing toxic commercial shower spray products!

Here's what you will need to make and use Shower Spray:

  • Empty spray bottle
  • White distilled vinegar
  • Purified water
  • Short-handled squeegee
  • Sponge


Fill spray bottle half way with white distilled vinegar and add water to fill the container. Add lid to bottle and shake briefly to combine the 2 ingredients. After showering, lightly spray shower walls and shower curtain or door with spray. Wipe down walls and door with squeegee, and use sponge to wipe up water that collected around top of bathtub as you wiped down the walls. Keep shower curtain or shower door open a bit to allow the shower to dry out.  Also, keep bathroom door opened after your shower for added ventilation.   

Beth Says: Keep in mind that what you put ON the body plus what is breathed IN are all absorbed INTO the body. Therefore, it's absolutely necessary that we consider our whole environment. This includes body care products, personal and household cleaners, as well as all products that outgas toxins into our environmental. 

Based on this very simplified explanation and as part of your personal Nutrition Mission, start considering what's in your environment and choose "cleaner" products when at all possible.

You might even make some of your body care products and cleansers at home to protect yourself from toxins. This will likely save you money since natural products tend to be more expensive than synthetic- based products.
