Bathtub & Shower

Use these proven cleaning techniques to clean your bath hub and shower.

Lighten with lemon juice.

If the bathtub or shower is discolored, a lemon or two and lots of baking soda can solve the problem. Halve the lemon, sprinkle the baking powder on the flat side, and use half of the lemon as a scrubber. Lemon juice is a natural bleaching agent, while baking soda is a mild abrasive that gently removes dirt and stains, especially on the fiberglass’s surface.

Blow up the shower door foam with two common ingredients

Heat a bowl of vinegar in the microwave, pour it into a heavy-duty spray bottle, and add half a cup of dish soap. Vortex combined. (Vinegar is easier to combine with soap when it’s warm.)

Apply this simple solution to the moldy grout filler

The bathroom’s humid area is a good place for mold and mildew to spread, especially when caulking. If your basic water and bleach spray solution doesn’t leave a bright white slurry, it’s time to try a stronger bleach solution. In a container, mix the bleach and baking soda into a batter and apply the solution to the mortar with an old brush. Just make sure the room is well ventilated! Cover the glued surface with plastic wrap and wait. Baking soda can hold the bleach in place, while plastic can prevent the bleach from drying out (and stopping the bleaching). After 30 minutes, remove the plastic wrap and rinse it off.

Unlock the showerhead

Over time, the showerhead can build up minerals and debris, clog the nozzle, and slow the flow of water. The good news is that you can resolve this issue with common household vinegar. Just take the showerhead out of the pipe and place it in the smallest container that can be placed. Add enough vinegar to cover the showerhead and let it soak for at least one hour – better overnight.

After soaking the shower nozzle, use a toothbrush to scrub the nozzle well. This will remove any remaining dirt or mineral deposits. Rinse inside with water and outside, then carefully check whether the nozzle is still clogged. In this case, use a toothpick to remove any remaining residue before reattaching the showerhead.

Only a few simple household materials and some elbow grease are required to brighten your bath hub and shower.
