The Right Way to Clean Your Shower

The Right Way to Clean Your Shower

At the end of a long, hard day, there’s nothing more relaxing than a hot shower. But nothing ruins your spa-like experience faster than seeing soap scum, mildew or pink slime. The writing’s on the walls, literally: It’s time to clean the shower. But do you know how to clean a shower the right way?

Whether yours is made of ceramic, fiberglass or stone, here are the expert-approved tips to clean everything—and get the job done quickly and easily.

Try to clean your shower once a week. To make the job easier, dry the shower after every use. Moisture is a breeding ground for mold, mildew and slime-creating bacteria, and you can greatly reduce these problems by squeegeeing the walls, floor and door of the shower, then drying everything with a towel. If it’s not obvious, don’t use your personal towel for that.

To reduce humidity, leave the shower door or curtain open, turn on the bathroom fan or open a window for 10 to 15 minutes after the fog on the mirror clears. Skip this step, and you’ll soon see mildew, slime and soap scum—unwelcome reminders that it’s time to clean again.

So the step by step?

  • Remove all items from the shower and wipe down bottles, especially the bottoms, with a damp microfiber cloth.
  • Check out the grout before cleaning the tiles. Address any stains or mildew using a commercial grout cleaner.
  • Rinse grout completely.
  • Spray the tile cleaner on your shower, completely covering the tiles. Allow it to sit for 10 minutes.
  • Scrub tiles with a clean, damp microfiber cloth or a scrubbing sponge for stubborn grime.
  • Rinse well.
  • Squeegee to remove excess water, and dry completely with a towel.

These steps are key in creating your ultimate shower experience. Use these well (or have us do it for you) and enjoy your shower experience!
