Cleaning Tip--Shower & soap scum

Good Morning!  I hope everyone is doing well.  Ray is dealing with some pain in his mouth and is having some dental work done.  Rylie has the beginning of a cold and the arthritis in my knee is keeping me up most of the night.  Other than that...we're just fine, lol. 
So, on to the tip of the day--Showers!  Woohoo!  LOL

Shower Doors: 1)Try using Resolve® carpet cleaner on clear shower doors to remove soap scum.

2) Make ammonia solution of 1/2 C. ammonia in 1 gal. water.  Pour solution into a spray bottle.  Spray the shower door.  Use a sponge or stiff bristle brush to scrub.  Rinse well.

Warning:  Keep room well ventilated while working!  Ammonia can irritate your skin, so wear gloves while cleaning with this solution.  Ammonia and bleach form a toxic gas when mixed together.  Do NOT mix the two cleaners!

3) Vinegar works well on soap scum, especially hot vinegar. Try heating up vinegar in the microwave, clean the microwave (as the vinegar will have loosened any stuck on food) and take the vinegar to the bathroom to clean the soap scum from the shower curtain and walls.

Shower soap scum:  If possible change to liquid soap it is a better alternative over bar soap.  Liquid soap doesn't have any talc and talc is responsible for the build up of soap scum.  Talc only adds volume to the soap without adding any value to it.  Changing to liquid soap will reduce the frequency of needing to remove soap scum.

I've been thinking about our nephew, John Jr (most call him Bubba, yeah we are true rednecks, lol)  Ray calls him Gomer.  He's been at boot camp almost a week now, just 8 more weeks to go.  I wonder how he is doing.  My thoughts and prayers are with this child, yes he is 18 but still so much more a boy.  Which reminds me...I've got to get that little "Army" thing done to put on my sidebar.

Have a great day & hugs to all my friends!
