    hahaha... count me in on the clorox wagon in the bathroom! It just isn't clean until the smell of bleach is in the air!
    Yup, with donuts!!

    combatcutie, I just use plain white wine vinegar--whatever's the cheapest (usually the store label or a generic-since I'm not using it for taste! ). I put a splash in with each load of colors I'm washing--probably equivalent to about 3 or 4 tablespoons worth.

    I love L'occitane lotions, shampoos and soaps! I know--kinda off topic but...

On Mom's recommendation, I got one of those sprayers and I'll be damned if my tub hasn't stayed clean and actually gotten whiter.
    I might have to try that one, then. I thought it was just another silly gimmicky thing, but if it actually works...

    Of everything, I hate cleaning the shower the most. Hate it. I'd rather scrub the toilet!

    It works way. I thought the same thing but I'll be darned if it doesn't work.

    What about residue? Don't you need to rinse it before showering or bathing? Wouldn't want to go blind from "soap poisoning"

    I use soap that comes in a bottle. It's a lot more effective and practical at getting rid of germs than bars of soap.

    Funny you should ask. From their FAQ.

    Does Scrubbing Bubbles® Automatic Shower Cleaner leave a residue? Do I have to rinse my shower after using it?
    No, you do not have to rinse your shower once the product is sprayed. Scrubbing Bubbles® Automatic Shower Cleaner works best on surfaces that are wetted during showering. If the cleaning solution is sprayed onto dry surfaces, it may leave spots. However, any spots can be wiped off with a damp cloth.

    I'll have to try the Scrubbing Bubbles thing, I also have an ancient clawfoot tub that's wonderful for baths but hard to keep spotless.

    On the vinegar in the wash -- is it ok to use for more delicate things? I have a lot of not-very-hardy, non-cotton blouses and pants that I wash in cold water and hang up to dry -- would vinegar be bad for them?
