DIY Automatic Shower Cleaner

Busy moms need great cleaning solutions, right? We need ways to keep our house clean that are quick and easy..oh and that won’t break the bank. I love Scrubbing Bubbles shower cleaner, however, buying those refills really adds up. So I went looking for a DIY Automatic Shower Cleaner replacement.

The other problem I have with my automatic cleaner is that it cleans the top half of my shower but not the tub area. Do you have that problem too? My tub is a whirlpool tub…sounds wonderful but it’s a PAIN to clean. Trying to keep those jets clean is terrible. So what I want is a replacement for my automatic cleaner and then the same thing but in a spray bottle so I can get my tub too. Here’s what I found.

Automatic Shower Cleaner

If you already have Scrubbing Bubbles bottle, you can re-use it. Take the bottle and carefully remove the cap using a small plyers.

DIY Automatic Shower Cleaner


  • 1/2 C Hydrogen Peroxide
  • 1/2 C Rubbing Alcohol
  • 2 tsp Dish Soap
  • 2 tsp Rinse Aid (such as Cascade)
  • Water


  1. Add Hydrogen Peroxide, Rubbing Alcohol, Dish Soap and Rinse Aid to the bottle. Fill with water. Replace the cap by twisting back on and gently shake. Put back in your automatic sprayer and use as normal.

Spray Bottle Shower Cleaner

Now here’s the same thing but I used this one in a spray bottle so it has the water measured out in ounces. The other thing I did was print out the instructions and taped it right to the bottle. That way, I have it and can refill when needed. I also used clear packing tape to cover the paper completely to water proof it a bit. :)

    I love making my own cleaners. I’ve only been doing it for a short while but the savings really adds up quick plus I know what I’m putting in them! I’m gonna give this a try, thanks for the idea!

    Tried you recipe today.I was able to get the cap off of the the refill bottle by squeezeing and turning the cap at the same time.Alot like a childproof cap.Worked great on both bottles.I did add a few drops of sweet orange essential oil for aroma.Thanks

    What is that automatic cleaner? I have never used scrubbing bubbles, do I have to buy this in order to use the bottle? The next one is a spray bottle cleaner. I am confused at the containers. Thank you

      Yes, the automatic is the scrubbing bubbles cleaner. If you don’t have the scrubbing bubbles shower cleaner then you wouldn’t make that one. Make the spray bottle one. That’s the one I use because my scrubbing bubbles auto cleaner stopped working. :)

    Can you substitute the Cascade rinse aid with white vinegar?

      You know, I’m not sure. It would make sense that it would work because you can use white vinegar to clean…lots of different uses. The Cascade is used in this to help the water run away or run down the surface. Vinegar may do the same or similar thing.
