Living a green lifestyle does not mean you have to live with a shower that is turning green from mold and mildew growth. You can make natural cleaners at home to keep your shower clean.
You can make all-natural spray cleaners to counteract mold and mildew in your shower. Fill a spray bottle with water and add a few drops of grapefruit seed extract. Spray the mixture over the mold and allow it to sit for several minutes, then wipe it away.
Natural scrubs can also give you a mildew-free shower. You can make a paste out of 3 parts baking soda to 1 part water and use it to scrub mold out of tile grout. Combine borax and white vinegar with warm water to create a scrub for your bathtub.
You can prevent mold and mildew from growing in your shower by keeping the room well ventilated and by wiping down the walls of your shower with a sponge or a squeegee after each use, according to "Living Green."
