How to clean your shower? Cleaning a shower is an important household task to maintain hygiene and prevent the buildup of mold and mildew.
Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to clean your shower effectively:
Materials you’ll need:
- All-purpose cleaner or a dedicated shower cleaner
- Baking soda (optional, for tougher stains)
- White vinegar
- Scrubbing brush or sponge
- Microfiber cloth or towel
- Old toothbrush (for grout and corners)
- Rubber gloves (optional, for protection)
Step 1: Gather Supplies Collect all the cleaning materials mentioned above. Put on rubber gloves if you prefer to use them.
Step 2: Remove Clutter Clear any shampoos, soaps, and other items from the shower area, so you have clear access to all surfaces.
Step 3: Pre-Treat Stains (if needed) For tougher stains or soap scum, create a paste by mixing baking soda with water. Apply this paste to the stained areas and let it sit for about 15-20 minutes. Then, scrub with a sponge or brush.
Step 4: Spray with Cleaner Spray the entire shower area, including tiles, grout, fixtures, and glass doors (if applicable), with an all-purpose cleaner or a dedicated shower cleaner. Be sure to follow the instructions on the cleaner’s label.
Step 5: Scrub Using a scrubbing brush or sponge, start scrubbing the surfaces. Pay special attention to areas with built-up grime or soap scum. Use an old toothbrush to clean grout lines and corners.
Step 6: Rinse Thoroughly rinse the shower with water to remove the cleaning solution and loosened dirt.
Step 7: Address Glass Doors If your shower has glass doors, mix equal parts of water and white vinegar in a spray bottle. Spray the mixture onto the glass and wipe it down with a microfiber cloth or paper towel. This helps to remove water spots and soap scum from the glass.
Step 8: Dry Surfaces After rinsing, use a clean microfiber cloth or towel to dry the surfaces. Drying helps prevent water spots and mold growth.
Step 9: Address Fixtures Use a cloth or paper towel soaked in white vinegar to clean fixtures, faucets, and handles. This helps to remove any mineral deposits and add shine.
Step 10: Preventive Maintenance To keep your shower cleaner for longer periods, consider using a daily shower spray or squeegeeing the surfaces after each use. This prevents the buildup of soap scum and reduces the frequency of deep cleaning.
Step 11: Dispose of Cleaning Materials Dispose of any used cleaning materials, and put away your cleaning supplies.
