One of the most overlooked areas in our homes is our shower enclosures. It’s understandable. We focus on making sure the rest of the bathroom is clean and tidy, but we tend to forget about the shower. The result? A smelly room that’s quickly gathering mould and mildew because the water doesn’t dry out properly. Not to worry! Here are some tips and tricks on how to get your shower looking like new again:

How to clean your shower

1) Clean the floor and walls around the tub with a sponge and cleaning solution (vinegar or bleach).

2) Wash down all tiles with a scrub brush and vinegar or bleach.

3) Rinse off all surfaces that you cleaned with cold water.

4) Use a squeegee to get rid of excess water on surfaces.

5) Mop up any excess water on the floor with a mop and bucket, then dry it using a towel.

6) Spray Lysol all over your shower and allow it to air out for at least ten minutes before shutting off the shower head and opening windows.


Here are some common shower problems that you may be experiencing.

1) The shower smells bad or mouldy: This is usually caused by the water not getting fully drained after every use. To avoid this, make sure to clean up any hair or soap scum in the drain before you get out of the shower. You can also buy a shower mat or rug for your feet to help prevent water from spilling onto the floor. If your shower still has a lingering smell, try adding a baking soda paste to the drain and let it sit overnight. It should take care of the problem!

2) The tiles are slippery or have grout that's stained with mildew: Make sure that all surfaces are covered in a finishing sealant when they're dry so they won't be slippery when wet. If you have mildew stains on your tiles, try scrubbing them away with bleach and vinegar-based cleaner.

3) Your tub/shower doesn't look clean even after you've cleaned it: This could be because the surface is etched with tiny scratches that trap dirt and grime between them like little magnets. To fix this issue ,you can use any typical cleansing solutions.
