Simple Tips For Maintaining Your Shower
Your bathroom’s shower can be quite a chore to clean, but if neglected, it can accumulate mold, mildew and soap scum. Additionally, without proper care, your shower’s tiles and grout will begin look filthy and grimy, detracting from the shiny, clean look that you want. The following tips are designed to always keep your shower looking its best.
1. Squeegee After Every Use
After every shower, it’s important to grab a squeegee and wipe all the excess water off the tile walls and the shower door. If the floor is tiled, take a minute and wipe excess water towards the drain. The drier you can keep your shower, the less chance excess mold and mildew will have to grow.
2. Leave The Shower Door Open
Keeping your shower as dry as possible includes removing as much humidity as possible. The best way to accomplish this is to leave the shower door, or the shower curtain, open for at least 30 minutes after each use. If you have trouble ventilating the bathroom, you may also want to leave a fan running and keep the bathroom door open as well.
3. The Products You Use Will Determine Everything
Many of the products people use in the shower will stain or discolor the grout in the shower. This includes shampoos, soap and bodywash, as well as the cleaning products you might use. If possible, choose clear or neutral-colored products and avoid soaps with bright colors. You should also avoid bar soap as much as possible because they cause stubborn soap scum.
