How to Clean Your Shower

Cleaning your shower can be more difficult and disgusting than you want to imagine.

Cleaning your shower can be more difficult and disgusting than you want to imagine. However, it’s also easier than you think. Here are some helpful tips for how to clean your shower. Summer is a good time to come to grips with it, especially since you need to shower so often with all of the heat.

Start with a Plan

Even before you can get started, you need to come up with a plan. Everything is easier when you have a plan beforehand. That said, you need to make sure you don’t overwhelm yourself. Breaking it down into smaller steps can help, and it’s one great way to prevent anxiety from overwhelming you. Before you can get started, you’ll need a few things: a tile brush, a cleaning solution that is natural and not chemical, some towels, a squeegee, baking soda, and a rinse cup.  

Begin on the Opposite Side

Look at where the showerhead is. Then look at the wall on the opposite side of where the showerhead points – that’s where you should start cleaning. Spray all of the walls with the cleaning solution, not just the one opposite the showerhead. Scrub with circular motions to make sure you cover every part of the wall and you don’t miss any spots.

Use Baking Soda

Now it’s time to clean the tub if it’s a combination tub and shower setup that you need to clean. Spread baking soda around in the tub. By spreading the baking soda, you can rid of the yuck that has accumulated on the tub. Use circular motions with your brush to make sure that all of the baking soda gets worked into the tub.

Rinse and Dry

Now the time has come to rinse and dry everything. Rinse the walls and tub using the rinse cup after filling it with some water from the faucet in the tub. Then, use the squeegee to help speed up the drying time and avoid the buildup of hard water spots. Then use the drying towels to help finish the job.
