Nothing deters guests and family members more than slimy gunk and black mildew lining the bathtub and shower walls. Bathroom maintenance doesn’t have to be as daunting as it seems. With a little help from some rubber gloves and heavy-duty cleaning products, your shower will look (and smell) great in no time. The First Coast Supply bathroom pros are here with everything you need to know about maintaining a spotless bathroom.
Start with the Shower Head and Tub Faucet
Most older showerheads and faucets experience calcium and rust build-up. No amount of scrubbing will rid that spout of the growth. So, what will fix the problem? The hands-down easiest (and BEST) solution is to submerge the head into a bag of vinegar. Here’s how to do it:
Fill a Ziploc bag with white vinegar and dip the showerhead or faucet fully into the liquid. Use a twist tie or rubber band the secure the bag in place. Leave the showerhead or faucet to soak overnight. Voila! Clean shower fixtures without the scrubbing.
Equip Yourself with the Right Tools at the Right Time
Let’s be real for a second. The easiest and most tempting time to clean your shower is when you’re, well, showering. Sure, it might sound counterintuitive to get dirty cleaning your shower while simultaneously cleaning your body. We have a solution for that.
Find a soap dispensing dish wand and fill it with equal parts detergent and white vinegar. Store the dish wand in your shower caddy so it’s within arm’s reach. Lather up with shampoo while you scrub the tiles. Win, win.
Don’t Let Soapscum Hide Your Attractive Shower Doors
One of the hardest parts of your bathroom to clean is the shower door. It gets murky, which clouds the look of a beautiful bathroom. It all starts with a good cleaner. We mean really good. Get ready to put some elbow grease into it!
Use a heavy-duty sponge to saturate your shower door in equal parts dish detergent and warm white vinegar. If you’re up for it, opt for this shower door scrubbing right after a steaming hot shower.
