Today, I have a special guest post for y’all from Anna W. Take it away Anna!

Cleaning the shower in the bathroom is just as important as cleaning the toilet, the sink and the other parts of the place. By doing that regularly, you will be able to remove permanently the stubborn stains and also protect the head and the head and the other parts of this important device now and in the future. When it comes to cleaning, it is essential to have cleaning supplies with good quality and the right tools. Instead of spending a lot of money for various toxic products, however, you can simply make disinfecting solutions yourself. It is easy and cheap, and the best part of all is that you will be sure that your family is protected from dangerous chemicals. 


Disinfecting your shower daily would be best but, unfortunately, not all people can afford to do this that often. If you are one of them, there is no need to worry. It is possible to remove effectively all grim from the shower in your bathroom , even if you clean it once a week. Thanks to the excellent recipes for homemade shower cleaners NW6 MainCleaners will present to you in this article, you won’t have to worry about the looks of this device anymore.  

  • Destroying the hard water spots with white vinegar –

After a while you may notice that there are some unpleasant spots on your shower, which simply don’t want to disappear no matter what you do. Those are probably hard water spots, for which you will need a special cleaner. The ordinary cleaning supplies usually can’t help in a situation like this, so in this case you can just use white vinegar. Pour a small part of the product in a plastic bag and then attach it to your shower’s head with a cord. The vinegar should cover the entire head of the shower and you have to leave the plastic bag there for an hour or more. Then you can scrub the surface of the device and wash it with water. 

  • Special cleaning spray with essential oil –

There is a great recipe you can try, which will turn the cleaning of your shower into a pleasant task. You will need a clean spray bottle for the purpose, in which you will have to mix a little liquid dish soap with white vinegar, rubbing alcohol, lemon, or some other essential oil and water. Adding more than one essential oil to the mixture is also an option. Make sure that all ingredients mix well and then you can take a dry cloth and start cleaning your shower from top to bottom. 

  • Disinfecting with baking soda – 

Another great recipe for homemade shower cleaner includes baking soda, a little filtered water, castille soap and the essential oil that you like so much. This time you can mix the necessary ingredients in a bowl or some other container and in the end you will receive an effective cleaner in the form of a paste. You can apply it on those parts of your shower that need cleaning, then disinfect with a sponge or cloth and rinse in the end with cold water. 

Those are three of the best recipes for natural shower cleaners that you can prepare in your own home. Except that they will make the device sparkling clean, they will also save you a lot of money in the future. As you can see, all necessary ingredients are perfectly affordable, so you won’t have any problems preparing the special mixtures any time you like. The cleanness of your shower will be preserved for a long period of time and you won’t have to worry about chemical residue and unpleasant side effects.

Tray Chic with One Kings Lane

I was so excited when One Kings Lane invited me to be a part of their Tray Chic campaign. 

Because I love trays. Well, actually, I love being organized. Sometimes a little too much. . . . my closet is organized by category, sub-category, and color. Seriously. Winter to summer, coats to jackets to cardigans, and cream to black. Please say I’m not the only one.

Don’t get me wrong, not everything in my life is that organized. Don’t even dare peek at my soap shipping filing cabinet. It’s a hot mess. Or the laundry/soap room. I really need to set my sights there next.

But give me a little space and the necessary tools (i.e. baskets, a few cute boxes, and yes, even a tray or two) and I can be organized. And for me, something as simple as a tray is a perfect organizational tool.

Let me share with you some of the ways I love using a tray:

They’re perfect for pool towels.

Or for jewelry.

For soap.

Something I’ve learned from being a soap maker is that props matter, and trays, dishes, and baskets are some of my favorites.

By the way, above is one of my favorite new soaps: Mermaid Dreams. 

As a catchall by the door.


 Trays are also perfect for a little holiday decor.


And of course, food.




As a sort of desk. There really isn’t enough room in this house for an actual desk, so most of the time my blogging set up looks a little like this:


But my favorite tray is the one on my new nightstand.


It’s the perfect container for essential odds and ends, like tissues, glasses, and the most essential of all, my kindle.

By the way, I just love my new nightstand. . . Marked down to clearance last week, and of course, I brought it home and painted the cream colored drawers black. But I really do love it!

And I have to show off the London pillow I found on the same day. It practically called my name, and no way could I walk out of that store without it!

Of course, any photo shoot around here usually ends up like this.


The girls insist on being in the middle of everything. Naturally 😉 

Sophie: You piled these pillows up here just for me, didn’t you?
