Are you going through a lot of trouble cleaning your shower? If that’s the case, I have the perfect solution for you. Here, I will go through 7 simple steps suggested by Cleanzen Houston that you can follow to get a sparkling shower without any trouble at all. Without wasting any time, let’s get right into it.
Before you can begin the process, you will need to gather up some things. You will need the following items –
- pair of rubber gloves,
- a bathroom cleaner,
- microfiber cloth,
- white vinegar,
- bicarbonate soda,
- citric acid powder (food grade)
- spray bottle
Now, let’s get started with the steps that you need to follow –
- The first thing you should do is remove everything you have in your shower. This makes it easier for you to clean the shower properly without a hassle. You can also clean up the surface dirt like hair or fibers stuck on the vents.
- After that, you have to make sure that you clean the shower using a bathroom cleaner. You can also use citric acid to clean your shower, as that works out pretty well too.
- If you live in a complicated water area, I recommend using a limescale remover every week to clean off all the mineral deposits.
Along with that, you can use vinegar to make sure that you are getting rid of all the deposits properly and not leaving anything behind. Just put the solution of half vinegar and half water into a spray bottle and spray it on the limescale wherever you see it.
- Next up, you have to clean up the grout that you may have between the tiles. The grouts can get quite dirty, so you have to make sure that you are cleaning them properly.
For that, you can use the same solution of water and vinegar with a 1:1 ratio. Spray the solution on the grouts and let it soak for around 5 minutes. Then, take a brush and scrub the grout to clean it properly.
However, if you have marble tiles, you shouldn’t use vinegar; in that case, you may need a specialized cleaner.
- After this, you have to move on to your showerhead. You have to clean your showerhead, especially if you notice a slow flow of water from your showerhead. It’s not that difficult to clean it because removing the showerhead is straightforward.
In the case of a mineral deposit, you can remove the showerhead and soak it in a vinegar and water solution overnight.
- The next thing you have to clean is the shower door. Now, it’s better to clean your shower door right after using your shower every day.
For the deep cleaning session, you can use bicarbonate of soda, mix it up with some water and create a thick paste. Then, scrub the shower door using a sponge. Make sure the sponge is non-abrasive. Finish off the process with a squeegee.
- The last step of cleaning your shower is to clean the shower curtains. They can get quite dirty with mildew stains. To clean it off, you can use regular washing liquid with some bicarbonate of soda. You can either hand wash it or use the washing machine with warm water and a regular cycle.
