Inside: The very best tips for cleaning a dirty shower using a safe, at-home cleaner!
I’ve been dying to show you guys this shower. Oh, my goodness. I have spent so much money trying to get this stuck on soap scum off and wouldn’t you know it… this family friendly DIY Shower Cleaner did the trick!
Are you ready for this?
Watch the video below to learn the secret to a really, really clean shower!
Of all things good and holy… can you believe that before and after? The photos don’t even do it full justice.
Honestly, I let it get that dirty. Oh, it was hard not to clean it. But the scale? I’ve never been able to get the scale off the sides until now!
How to Clean a Dirty Shower
First you need to make this family friendly DIY Shower Cleaner!
Then take it and spray every inch of your shower. I do want to say that since I wrote this post, I’ve totally moved to using glass spray bottles like these. Not only are the better for you, they are more durable. That plastic spray bottle that is pictured down below totally died on me after just a few uses. Womp. Womp. Glass bottles all the way.
Make sure and get all the nooks and grody crannies.
Then let it sit for 2 hours. It will work while you go have some fun. Like maybe, go watch reruns of the Walking Dead. Then this won’t seem quite so gross to you.
After a couple of hours of zombies, come back and scrub just a little bit.
The dirt will come off with just a swipe of the sponge (this one is made from 50% agave…) which is amazing because I usually have to really put my whole 5’10 1/2 ” self behind it.
This two sided sponge with the scrubby pad on the other side worked amazingly well on that stuck on scale. I was like a wide-eyed chimpanzee with a dozen banana balloons the entire time I was cleaning this shower.
Then give it a good rinse.
It you still have some soap scum, just spray it down, let it sit for about thirty more minutes and repeat the process. I had to.
Here’s the shower before:
And here it is sparkly, blindingly clean after:
I will never use anything else again. And if you do this about one a week, you’ll never even have to use any elbow grease! I’m all for non-greasy elbows, yo.
No more dirty shower. Hallelujah!
