Shower Cleaning 101

Keeping your house clean is not always easy. With regular cleaning the job can be much easier, but even still there are some areas of the home that simply are harder to clean. The bathroom, and particularly the shower is one such area.

The poor bathroom has a lot working against it. It is where we go when we are dirty, meaning we take our dirt there and not all of it goes down the drain. We also change clothes there meaning an abundance of skin falls to the floor as we do so. Then there is the issue of damp. All these elements combine to make the bathroom one room in the house that needs extra attention when it comes to cleaning.

If you want to keep your bathroom clean, you have to be consistent. If you don’t scrub it regularly the dirt and lime scale, mold and mildew will build up and become increasingly difficult to remove. Scrubbing everything down once a week should make this chore much easier.

Shower cleaning is one thing that many of us dread. If you have a shower stall there is one simple reason for this: it is weird and uncomfortable to get into the shower when you aren’t taking a shower. The enclosed space and usually wet walls are just not the most inviting environment. This means many of us leave the shower cleaning for next week, or the week after that, allowing for buildup of soap scum, mildew and lime scale.

Because of all that build up, you should enter the shower well prepared to fight your battle. You might choose to use natural ingredients for cleaning. In that case vinegar diluted in equal parts of water can be used in a spray bottle. This is quite good for removing lime scale and getting rid of mildew. Simply pre-scrub, spray, soak then scrub again and rinse.

An easier way of shower cleaning is to purchase commercial cleaners available at the supermarket. If you have hard water lime scale can be a real problem, but purchasing a lime scale remover can make the job simple.

Soap scum is easily removed with a gentle abrasive in liquid or powder form. Use the scratchy side of your sponge to scrub away that grayish scum. When your shower is clean, rinse thoroughly and turn your attention to mold and mildew.

Of course bleach works wonders at getting rid of mold and mildew. Simply use bleach diluted in equal parts of water and spray over the affected area soaking well. Allow it to sit for about ten minute then scrub and wipe away. If there is still some left, you can try using straight bleach, which should do the trick.

It feels great to climb into a clean shower stall in the morning or evening. And cleaning it once a week makes the job quick and easy and will give you that clean feeling shower every day.
