How do I deep clean my shower?
To deep clean your shower and tub you’ll need to check the state of your bathroom first. This will prepare you for shaping a solid plan of attack to take care of the specific issues you’re dealing with.
Mold and Mildew
If you notice mold and mildew appearing anywhere in your shower, better act fast to get rid of them before they spread too much. To avoid major trouble, we’d also recommend preventive treatment of any mold-prone areas. Here’s how to go about it:
- Mix hydrogen peroxide with generic washing soda (which is not the same as baking soda).
- Apply this home-made paste to moldy areas as well as to mold-prone areas in your shower.
- Let it sit for a while, before rinsing off with water, and wiping dry with a soft, clean cloth.
Using this type of home-made paste over chlorine-based bleach is a superior solution for treating mold, as it’s safer and more eco-friendly, while highly effective.
White vinegar is one of those super useful household products that can be applied to various purposes, including cleaning, cooking and gardening. Among its many uses — as you’ve probably already guessed — is deep cleaning the showerhead. This can be done in three easy steps:
- Mix a 50:50 ratio of white vinegar and water in a basin.
- Soak the showerhead in the basin for approximately one hour.
- Wipe the showerhead with a sponge before running water to wash off residue vinegar.
To prevent scum accumulation, make it a habit to spray white vinegar on the showerhead every once in a while.
You’d be surprised to learn how often people skip shower curtains when cleaning their shower. Needless to say this is bad practice, unless you’re a fan of germs and nasty soap scum build-up. Here’s how to keep your shower curtain hygiene at a top level at all times:
- Before first use, rinse your new shower curtain in the washing machine adding a little distilled white vinegar.
- If you have a plastic shower curtain, you can clean it outdoors with the help of a white vinegar spray, clean cloth, and a water hose.
- Get rid of mold and mildew from the bottom section by scrubbing thoroughly with a paste made of washing soda and hydrogen peroxide/
- Be sure to always follow manufacturer’s maintenance instructions so as to protect your shower curtain fabric.
The key to maintaining your shower doors spotless is to dry them well after each use — removing residue water with a squeegee or a cloth is all there is to it. You can use a glass cleaner that contains white vinegar, cornstarch, rubbing alcohol and water for cleaning glass and mirror surfaces without fear of damaging them.
How do I get my shower white again?
All you need to whiten and disinfect grout and tiled wall surfaces in your shower — without having to reach for chlorine or bleach — is a simple home-made paste we previously mentioned (equal parts washing soda and hydrogen peroxide) and an old toothbrush.
To prevent stains, clean your tub depending on material it’s made of:
- Rinse and dry your enamel-coated tub after each use. Clean it with hot water, dish liquid, and a microfiber. Don’t use abrasive or acidic cleaning supplies, as these could harm the delicate surface of your tub.
- If you have a fiberglass tub, a paste made of baking soda, soap, and water will work wonders at removing stains. You can add a protective layer of wax designed for fiberglass to ensure its long lasting shine.
- While an acrylic tub is sensitive to scratches, filth and grime tend to wash off easily from its surface, so warm water and dish soap are enough to clean it.
