HOW TO CLEAN AND MAINTAIN YOUR SHOWER ENCLOSURE |

BASIC STEPS TO CLEAN A SHOWER 

  • After each use, use a clean, dry cloth to wipe down your shower. This daily habit helps prevent mineral buildup. It might not be the first thing you think of, but it saves you time and effort later. 
  • If you see signs of mineral buildup, spray glass cleaner on the shower glass and let it sit for a minute. 
  • Use a paper towel to spread the glass cleaner over the glass and then dry it completely.

WHAT ARE THE BEST PRODUCTS TO CLEAN A SHOWER? 

1. ASTONISH DAILY SHOWER SELF CLEANER 750ML 

This budget-friendly, quick and easy cleaning liquid is a top choice for keeping your shower clean. It’s super convenient because you just spray and forget. The solution quickly gets rid of soap and water stains, leaving a sparkling finish. The key benefit is that regular use stops limescale from building up. This vegan solution works great on other shower parts like the plastic wheels of the shower door, the enamel tray, glass walls, tiles and vinyl curtains. 

2. CLEAN SHOWER DAILY SHOWER CLEANER SPRAY 

If you hate scrubbing, you'll love this cleaning solution. After showering, spray a light mist of this premium product and walk away. That's right, you can clean your shower – whether it's a walk-in or corner shower – without any rubbing, wiping, rinsing or squeegeeing. This product is especially helpful in areas with hard water. The only downside is this spray is not safe for use on natural stone or marble. Make sure to keep this in mind before you buy it. 

3. MR MUSCLE PLATINUM SHOWER SHINE 750ML 

This daily shower cleaner is another affordable option that eliminates scrubbing, rinsing or wiping. You just spray and walk away. This convenient spray effectively prevents the build-up of soap scum, grime, grout and limescale on the different surfaces in your shower. You can use this versatile cleaner on acrylics, plastics, fiberglass, chrome, porcelain, glass, tiles and shower curtains. 

4. HG 147050106 SHOWER & WASHBASIN SPRAY 

This everyday bathroom cleaner works well on plastic shower units, tiled walls and sinks. This spray is effective on all bathroom surfaces, including marble, granite, travertine, enamel and natural stone. A handy refill bottle makes this product even more budget-friendly. Using it is easy too. Simply spray the shower surface and let it sit for a few minutes. Then rinse the surface thoroughly with water. 

5. MELLERUD SHOWER CUBICLE CLEAN AND CARE 

This premium product makes shower surfaces hygienically clean in a simple two-step process. This spray is suitable for use on showers made from glass, plastic or aluminum. You can use it on shower dividers and curtains too. After showering, spray a light mist and rinse off with water.

HOW TO CLEAN SHOWER DOORS WITHOUT SCRATCHING OR DAMAGING THEM? 

A natural way to clean shower doors is to mix baking soda with water to make a thick paste. Next, scrub the glass surface with a non-abrasive sponge. Lastly, rinse the glass with vinegar until it shines. (Because undiluted vinegar can cause skin burns, it's best to wear gloves.)

HOW TO CLEAN SHOWER DOORS WITH PROTECTIVE COATING? 

For glass with protective coating, be careful. Don't use any product containing ammonia, hydrofluoric acid or phosphoric acid. Avoid using sharp objects, abrasive brushes or razor blades as these could scratch the coating. A natural way to clean shower doors with protective coating is to use vinegar. Wipe the glass with a Scotch-Brite Non-Scratch Scrub Sponge dipped in vinegar. Then, rinse the glass clean with water. 

Since you can't wipe and rinse the shower door glass after each use, an easier way to clean glass with protective coating is to use Clean Shower Cleaner Shower Daily Spray. As mentioned above, this gives you a sparkling finish without any wiping or rinsing. You can use this premium cleaner to clean the entire shower – whether it's a walk-in or corner shower.

HOW TO CLEAN SHOWER DOOR TRACKS? 

Unlike a walk-in shower, a corner shower has a sliding door. Shower door tracks can be the hardest part of the shower to clean because soap scum and dirt often build up there. They're also the most overlooked part of a shower.  

The best way – and, of course, the most effective way – to clean door tracks is to use common household cleaning supplies: an old toothbrush, one tablespoon of lemon juice and two tablespoons of salt. Mix the lemon juice and salt to make a smooth paste. Use the toothbrush to apply this paste inside all the hard-to-reach parts of the sliding rolls. Wait for 15 minutes, and rinse the dirt off with warm water. If necessary, repeat this process.

HOW TO CLEAN THE SHOWER DRAIN? 

Cleaning the shower drain can be challenging. Ideally, if you do it once a month, your drain won't clog and the water will drain properly. While a chemical drain cleaner is fast and effective, we don't recommend it because the strong chemicals can damage your plumbing. So, we suggest doing it the natural way using the steps below. 

  • Step 1 : Wear rubber gloves. Remove the shower drain cover. First, you'll need to remove any large debris like hair. Use a drain snake for this. A thin wire coat hanger can also work.  
  • Step 2 : Remove the initial debris with your fingers. Then, gently insert the movable end of the drain snake and push it down the drain. With a slight twisting motion, move the end forward so the snake winds down the drain.  
  • Step 3 : Slowly pull the snake upwards. Pull out the blocking debris and put it in a plastic bag. 
  • Step 4 : If needed, repeat this process. Make sure all blockages are cleared. 
  • Step 5 : In this extra step, use 1 tbsp of baking soda and some vinegar to clear any remaining debris. Pour the baking soda down the drain. Then, pour in some distilled white vinegar. A fizzing sound means the remaining blockages are being cleared. 
  • Step 6 : Wait for 30–40 minutes. Pour half a bucket of hot water into the shower drain to flush the mixture. Replace the shower drain cover. 

If all this seems like too much work, then you can try Mr Muscle Max Gel Unblocker or Scotch Corporation Liquid Drain Opener. These unclogging liquids do the same job quickly, offering an easier solution.  

 

Shower Drain With Bathroom Tiles

HOW TO CLEAN SHOWER WALL OR FLOOR TILES? 

Dirty shower tiles are not only unhygienic, but they're also embarrassing. Scrubbing is the best way to clean them, but this can take a long time. If you have the time and your tiles aren't natural stone, you can use lemon juice to clean them. This method doesn't involve any scrubbing. First, spread lemon juice evenly on the stubborn spots on the tiles. Then, let it sit for two hours. Lastly, wipe with a soft cloth and rinse the tiles thoroughly.

HOW TO CLEAN A SHOWER WITH COMMON KITCHEN ITEMS LIKE VINEGAR AND BAKING SODA? 

A mix of vinegar and baking soda is a practical solution for cleaning most surfaces. But this mix should never be used on natural stone because it can cause discoloration. Using them separately is more effective than using them together. This is because combining them can neutralize their effects, mostly producing water and some sodium acetate. So, make a thick paste by mixing baking soda with water. Wear rubber gloves and apply this paste evenly over the shower surface you want to clean. Let it sit for a few minutes before wiping the surface with a clean, soft towel dipped in vinegar. Rinse the surface thoroughly with water. 

 


HOW OFTEN SHOULD YOU CLEAN YOUR SHOWER? 

Ideally, you should clean your shower weekly to prevent mildew and stains from building up. But if you miss a week, you'll have to work harder the next week. If you rely on a spray-and-forget cleaner every day, make sure to rinse the shower once a week after spraying. Pay attention to the showerhead, shower unit and wall tiles
