Are you looking for shower cleaning tips that can help you? If so, look no further. This article will give you some tips on how you can successfully get rid of the dirt, unsightly colors caused by mold or mildew and soap scum that your shower room has accumulated.
In addition to the dirt and soap scum that can accumulate on your shower door and walls, such a wet and humid room is a perfect breeding ground for mold and mildew. Whether or not you have a bathtub or a shower stall, it’s still important to clean it regularly. The frequency though will depend on your tolerance for buildup.
Depending on your preference, here are two effective ways you can clean this room:
If you would like to clean your bathroom the traditional way, you can make use of the many commercial household cleaning products that are easily available at your corner store.
You can also make use of a homemade mixture that will help you clean your shower room. For this, you will need the following:
1 cup Vinegar
2-3 cups Hot Water
1 Grout Brush
1 cup Chlorine Bleach
5 cups Hot Water
1 Grout Brush
Do not use either of the above mixtures on colored grout.
When the grout is as clean as you can get it, let it dry. Then apply a silicone sealant which will prevent its reabsorbing dirt and grime.
When mixing the above ingredients as well as working with these mixtures, make sure that you wear rubber gloves all the time. This is because the mixture is a powerful solution that may irritate your skin. If you would prefer to not take such risks, the next option may be more ideal for you.
DIY Steam Cleaning
Contrary to the common belief that steamers are only for pressing clothes, they can also be used for cleaning the house. This is because these miracle workers are capable of getting rid of grime, dirt, stains, dust mites, grease, and the unseen forces of germs and bacteria – and, of course, mold and mildew.
If you plan to use a steam cleaner to clean your shower stall, you only need to add a liquid cleaning solution into the tank of the cleaner. Then you can spray the tiles and grout with this mixture before letting it rest for a few minutes so that the scum can be dissolved. Once you have given it a few minutes to settle, you can use your steam cleaner again (with only water this time) so that the solution – along with the dirt, etc. — can be rinsed away.
Using a steam cleaner is the better and easier option. Despite the fact that it costs some money to buy a device, it may still worth the investment, knowing that you can use it for other than just pressing or steaming your clothes.
Professional Steam Cleaning
An even easier option is hiring a professional to steam clean your shower tiles and grout. It may cost a bit more, but you can be sure that your shower room will be cleaned to your satisfaction without your having to tire yourself out.
