Are you ready for the seasons to change? I don’t know about you guys and gals, but I hate cleaning my tub. It is a place where we clean ourselves, it shouldn’t get that dirty. But, I always wait until it has scum buildup and all sorts of gunk. Obviously settling into warm water feels good, but that pleasure happens to have staying power. According to psychologist Neil Morris, who surveyed 80 people, bathing can diminish feelings of depression and pessimism because “Baths give you…a wonderful combination of isolation, quiet, and comfort.”
The feelings of closeness we receive from being submerged in warm liquid “give us connotations of being in the womb, and it is very comforting,” Dr. John Harcup, chairman of the Medical Advisory Committee for the British Spa Foundation, suggests. Overall, bathing induces feelings of comfort and easiness, and that kind of security allows your mind, and subsequently your body, to relax.
Thankfully, Pinterest scrolling came in handy and sent me a godsend recipe. This is simple but MIGHTY in breaking down even the oil and grease from a mechanic’s filth. Now, I will pass it on to all of you.
- Mighty Shower & Tub Cleaner
- White Vinegar
- Dawn Dish Soap (or any type that is good with oils)
- Sponge with a scrub side
(if you do not have a scrub side sponge, you can scrub with a brush)
Step 1- Mix equal parts of vinegar and dish soap in a bowl. (I used about 1 cup of each)
Step 2- Using the sponge spread the mixture on your tub and let it sit for at least 30 minutes.
Step 3- Using the scrub side of the sponge (or your scrub brush) scrub the surface with some water
Step 4- Be sure to rinse all of the mixture and grime off of everywhere you applied & scrubbed.
Step 5- Sip on some wine and enjoy a nice clean bubble bath in your sparkling clean tub.
