Easy Shower Cleaning Tips

We hate to break it to you, but your shower is probably pretty gross. Hard water and product build up don’t make that humid mess of a shower any less messy. We’re sure it’s not entirely your fault, cleaning a shower is a bit of a pain! No matter what the commercials say, those scrubbing bubbles don’t always cut it. So consider this your quick and easy guide to cleaning up where you clean up.


You’re going to need to start with supplies

  1. Get a good tile and tub cleaner. The harder the cleaner works, the less work you’ll have to do. Just make sure the cleaning product is safe for whatever material your shower tile and tub are made of.
  2. Find the a good quality sponge, don’t cheap out on this one or it might crap out on you. You’re going to want something double sided, but non abrasive. You’re going to have bigger problems than just a dirty shower if you scratch the crap out of it.
  3. It’s also a good idea to have a microfiber drying cloth, squeegee and some baking soda to make sure all your hard cleaning work doesn’t go to waste, of course if you have glass doors on your shower, you might want to get your hands on some white vinegar too.


Let the cleaning commence!

  1. Take all of your stuff out of the shower. Shampoo, out!  Conditioner out!
  2. Put that tile and tub cleaner to work. Start by spray down the tile portion of the shower and let it sit for a few minutes.
  3. After the cleaning product has sat for a while, break out that sponge and get to scrubbing. Try starting at one side of the shower and making your way to the other to make sure you don’t miss a spot.
  4. If you have any tough to clean spots, sprinkle some of that baking soda on the sponge and get to work with that elbow grease.
  5. Now that the walls are clean, time to move to the tub. Spray it down with the cleaner and let it sit for 5-10 minutes, then let the scrubbing begin!
  6. Time to rinse! This part is way easier with a removable shower head. Take the shower head and start by spray down the walls of the shower, top to bottom, moving from one side to the other like you did with the scrubbing part. If you don’t have a removable shower, then you can run the water, fill up a jug you have handy and poor it down the walls to rinse them off.
  7. Once everything is rinsed, bust on that squeegee and get all the extra water off the walls and tub. Follow the squeegee with the microfiber cloth to make sure everything is dry.


Now, let’s get you in a routine of regularly cleaning your shower. For reals the more often you clean it, the less messy it will be. The longer you let your shower go, the dirtier it will be, and the dirtier it is, the longer it takes to clean. Crazy,  right?
