The whole idea of having a shower is to come out feeling cleaner than when you went in. If your shower feels like it could do with a bit of attention, then you need to don your rubber gloves and give it a deep clean. Depending on how dirty your shower currently is will depend on how much elbow grease you will need to put in - but the end result will be well worth the effort. Here are some tips to help you get your shower looking as good as new.
1) Remove the showerhead and place in a large plastic bag along with an ample amount of white vinegar (enough to cover the whole of the showerhead). Tie up the bag and leave it overnight to soak. In the morning, rinse in water and replace.
2) Give your shower curtain a new lease of life by placing it in the washing machine. Put in a couple of towels as well to help scrub away any soap scum or mildrew residue. To dry it, just rehang.
3) Shower doors can be given a thorough clean by using a paste made by adding a splash of white vinegar to a cup of baking soda. Apply the paste directly to the shower door, paying attention to especially grimy areas. The paste should be thick so it stays put. Leave for an hour or so and then scrub with a microfibre cloth. Once the door is clean, you may want to give an extra gleam by drying it with a dry microfibre cloth. Once the door is clean, you may want to give an extra gleam by drying it with a dry microfibre cloth too.
4) The shower tray can usually be kept fairly clean with a weekly scrub, but if you want to give it some extra attention you can spray a bathroom cleaner over the area and leave for 20 minutes before scrubbing and rinsing.
5) A good habit to get into is to wipe away moisture and condensation after every shower. You should also try and keep a window open for an hour a day to keep humidity levels down. And the secret to keeping your shower free of grime and germs is by deep cleaning every two to three months.
