7 Common Shower Cleaning Mistakes and How to Avoid Them

7 Common Shower Cleaning Mistakes and How to Avoid Them

Maintaining a clean and hygienic shower is the best way to ensure your showering experience is relaxing and refreshing every time. In this article, we'll highlight 7 common shower cleaning mistakes and provide you with valuable tips on how to avoid them. Let's dive in!

1. Neglecting to clean your shower regularly

Set a regular cleaning schedule and stick to it. A quick wipe down after each use paired with a monthly (or fortnightly) deep clean will keep your shower in sparkling condition.

2. Using harsh cleaning chemicals

Opt for an eco-friendly cleaning solution like our Glass Restoration Stain Remover that effectively combats soap scum and grime without causing harm to shower surfaces, people, animals or our planet. 

3. Overlooking the importance of cleaning shower curtains

Regularly clean and disinfect shower curtains to avoid a partially clean shower and prevent mould build-up over time.

4. Allowing moisture to build up

While using, or at least after each use, open windows or run the ventilation fan to reduce moisture levels. Wipe down surfaces with a squeegee or towel to prevent water accumulation, mould and mildew growth and unpleasant odours.

5. Using abrasive cleaning tools

Opt for soft or non-abrasive scrubbers to clean shower tiles and fixtures. A microfibre cloth or sponge is gentle yet effective in removing dirt and grime, while avoiding damage to surfaces.

6. Failing to clean grout lines

Regularly clean grout lines when you clean the rest of your shower surfaces to avoid ending up with discoloured, grimy areas that can be tough to clean. To extend the time between cleans, consider a grout and tile nanocoat protector.

7. Forgetting to clean the shower head

Remove the showerhead and soak it in a cleaning solution to dissolve mineral deposits. Scrub gently, rinse thoroughly and reattach it to enjoy a refreshing and free-flowing shower.

With these tips, your shower will remain a haven of cleanliness and relaxation!
