This is a good spray to have on hand to maintain your shower screen and tiles. This Toilet and Shower Cleaner is what I suggest if you have a lot of hard water build up, however this spray is handy for light build up or in-between cleans. It is also handy for around basins and splash backs.


Makes: 370 ml Prep time: < 5 min.


• ½ cup | 120 g citric acid
• 1 cup | 250 ml hot water
• 25 drops of essential oils


My favourite essential oils in this recipe are lemon and orange, but don’t be limited by my suggestions. Use oils that fit your budget, or those that you already have in your collection. Read here for more information.


1. Add all ingredients to a bowl and mix until citric acid has dissolved and mixture is combined.
2. Transfer into container of choice.

To Use

Spray affected area, leave for 3-5 minutes and wipe over with a cleaning cloth and rinse well. Repeat process as often as required. Shake well prior to each use.

Recipe Notes

To avoid a sticky residue, make sure you rinse or wipe down surfaces thoroughly.
