Showers are meant for cleaning, but many people do not like cleaning the showers themselves. At Mr. Rooter of San Diego, we appreciate how valuable your time is, which is why we offer 24/7 emergency help to get your plumbing problems fixed as soon as possible. To help you with cleaning your shower, we tried out a few tricks. Here’s what we found to be most helpful.
Shower curtains get covered in grime and need some serious cleaning. Make your life easier by taking it down, drawing a salt water bath, and letting the fabric soak for a few hours. To help fight off future scum, get an all-purpose cleaner you can keep in your bathtub and spray the bottom of the curtain as you finish a shower, rinsing off the spray with the water.
Grab a dish wand from the store, put your favorite all-purpose cleaner in the reservoir, and hang it in your shower. Next time you’re milking a few more minutes under the hot water, grab the wand and start scrubbing the walls.
A good trick to keeping moisture from staying on shower surfaces is to bring a trick from the garage into the bathroom. Rain-X makes a special brand for use in showers that helps surfaces repel the water.
Keeping water from sitting in your shower helps fight mildew stains. After spraying the water repellent, put a squeegee in your shower. After you finish your shower, grab the tool and wipe all the water off the walls into the tub.
Eventually, you’ll have to put some elbow grease into cleaning tile and grout. Grab a scrubbing head for your drill and the tile cleaning substance you prefer and get to scrubbing!
Shower Head Soak
Can you see scum building up on the head? Get a plastic bag, a rubber band, and some vinegar. Hang the vinegar in the back over the shower head and let it soak overnight. The next day you’ll find a nice clean shower head.
