CLEANING SHOWERS by Vickie Kline

Nobody likes scrubbing the bathtub or shower walls, and yet it is something that has to be done.

Here’s a tip to help make it easier: Apply car wax to the shower walls and glass doors. Because fiberglass and glass are porous surfaces, the car wax will seal the pores, making future cleaning easier. Water will simply run off and help reduce water spots, which will keep your shower clear, bright, and squeaky clean. This can be applied twice per year. (Be sure not to use car wax on the tub floor. It will become dangerously slick…)

To keep the shower doors sparkling and decrease buildup, use a squeegee or wipe down after each use. Something else that helps is to check the soap you’re using. Certain bar soaps contain talc, which adds to buildup and soap scum. It is still necessary to clean regularly, but the spots are easier to remove with natural products, such as, Mrs. Meyer’s, Kiss My Face, Burt’s Bees, and Zum Bar. (Curious what’s in your current soap? Check out Crunchy Betty.)

A good way to help stay ahead of buildup and soap scum is to use an orange citrus-based cleaner during regular weekly cleanings. This works well on the tub floor, helping break down the buildup and give the whole area a pleasant scent.

Strive to be healthy!
