    Thanks everyone, I think I may have some Gumption in the laundry cupboard.

    I have a question, when using the bicarb soda, do you mix it in with the water and vinegar mixture or put it on first and then spray with the mixture?

    I found the lectric soda @ Woolworths, with the cleaning stuff, right down on the bottom shelf!

    Best thing ever......clean your tiles till sparkling (gumption really is epic) the get yourself a tub of car wax and polish those tiles. It will keep your shower clean for at least 6 months

    i use half a lemon dipped in bicarb on the glass door and walls, it gets of soap scum better than chemicals.

    for the tiles i use an old toothbrush with bicarb to do the grouting (like once ever 6 months) then just scrub with vinegar, water and tea tree oil solution. I just chuck like a third vinegar to 2 thirds water in a spray bottle with a few drops of oil .
    if you have really stubborn tiles, heating the vinegar first and mixing in some detergent too works a charm

    I think with the bicarbonate and vinegar you are meant to keep them separate until you need it to work on the surface. When the two combine, it causes a chemical reaction which is why it is good for cleaning apparently. Some people keep vinegar and water in a spray bottle to spray onto the bicarbonate.
