How do I clean my shower?
- Blog •
You always step out of the shower fresh and fruity, but have you ever wondered where all the dirt and soap scum go? Most of it disappears down the drain, but residues also remain on the tiles, the floor, the shower curtain, the taps and in the drain. The shower corner can therefore use regular cleaning, preferably once a week. With my tips you'll be done in no time!
Most important tip to keep the shower fresh: after every shower, wipe the doors and walls with a squeegee, rinse the shower curtain and remove all hair from the shower drain.
For a thorough cleaning I use the bathroom cleaner or a mixture of cleaning vinegar and water. Soak the entire shower corner with it and let it soak in for 10 minutes. Then grab a sanitary sponge or the Bathroom Pad to clean the tiles. Thanks to the soft material, your tiles will remain intact. Just rinse with water, dry with a squeegee and your shower will shine again!
How to remove limescale!
Sooner or later you will always get limescale or soap residue on the shower head, especially if you live in a region with hard water. Can you detach your shower head? Submerge it overnight in vinegar water (half water, half cleaning vinegar). If the head is stuck, you can fill a plastic bag with vinegar and secure it to the shower head with elastic or tape so that the head is submerged in the vinegar. Let it rest overnight and rinse well with cold water the next day. You can scrub any residue with an old toothbrush. Open clogged holes with a toothpick or safety pin.
After this thorough cleaning, you can prevent deposits by regularly spraying detergent or vinegar on the shower head. Brush off the residue with an old toothbrush and let the shower run for a minute. Vinegar is also ideal for removing soap residue from the shower head. Win win!
