It’s almost the weekend again! We hope you’ve had a great week, and have some fun plans lined up for the weekend. Today we’ve got a recipe for you to get your house clean while you sleep… so you can spend the rest of your time doing more important things like playing with your kids or taking the pup for a walk! This is a super simple and natural recipe for cleaning your shower overnight. By letting the cleaner sit overnight, all you have to do is rinse the shower in the AM! Do this every 2 or 3 weeks to keep your shower fresh and prevent buildup.




  • 1/4 cup borax
  • 1/4 tsp tea tree oil
  • 2 cups hot water
  • Funnel
  • Empty spray bottle




  1. Using your funnel, pour the borax into the empty spray bottle.
  2. Add the hot water & tea tree oil to the bottle, put the nozzle back on the bottle and give it a shake until the borax dissolves.
  3. Spray the shower cleaner onto all the surfaces of your shower and let it sit overnight.
  4. In the AM rinse your shower, depending on how dirty it is you may need to take a light sponge to some surfaces.


Looking for a fun variation? Try adding other essential oils in your favorite fragrances! We love lavender, eucalyptus, and lemon for bathrooms! If you give this recipe a try, let us know what you think!
