Glad you posted this link. I'll have to check out the info this afternoon. I have read that making your own cleaners is way cheaper and a lot safer.

I really need a good tile cleaner, i've posted pictures of one of our bathrooms, we have a lot of tile, and I hate soap scum. HELP PLEASE.

12 ounces white vinegarĀ 
12 ounces liquid, blue dawn detergent

Directions: 1 Heat vinegar in microwave until hot and pour into squirt bottle.

2 Add the Dawn soap. Put the lid on and gently shake to incorporate.

3 You now have a powerful cleaning product that will melt soap scum and tub and shower buildup, clean sinks, appliances and just about anything. Just spray it on, scrub, rinse and be amazed. For tough soap scum build-up, spray the mixture on and allow it to sit as long as overnight. Then, scrub and rinse.

I was skeptical because I have tried so many homemade recipes for soap scum but this really does work....amazingly well. Within 5 minutes the soap scum came off with ease. I only tried this because I had dawn and vinegar on hand. After trying this I will make sure I always have dawn and vinegar. BTW This recipe will last a very long time, It doesn't take much of it in a spray bottle.
