If you still have some time on your hands and you’re looking for ways to be productive while you have the time then listen up because we’re about to show you how to easily clean your shower with 2 natural ingredients – which you already have in your kitchen.
Bicarbonate of soda (baking soda) and vinegar.
Yes, that’s right – these 2 natural ingredients and super powerful when it comes to cleaning the house – and can easily clean anything from toilet stains to those pesky oven racks or trays you have never actually been able to clean 100%.
Firstly, there’s no need to feel ashamed if you have some build-up in the shower – we’ve all been there which is why we wanted to share the process when we came across on the blog My Real Life at Home.
*Why not take a before photo of the shower rails and drain and doors – even if you don’t share a before and after at least you can see what you’ve achieved.
Now, although the 2 ingredients are natural we still recommend wearing washing gloves as the products will make your hands and nails very dry.
Pour the vinegar directly into the shower door tracks/rails at the bottom. If your shower rail has small holes inside for water drainage simply ‘plug’ them up with some paper towel so that the vinegar can sit and soak for about 30 minutes. For the upright rails and tracks along the wall, you can soak some paper towels in vinegar and push them in so they sit there and soak. The shower walls and doors can be sprayed directly with vinegar if you have an old spray bottle. be sure to rinse out well before filling with vinegar.
After 30 minutes wipe out the vinegar, most of the grime/build-up should come off after wiping. See if you have an old toothbrush to really get into all the nooks and remove any smaller pieces.
For the more stubborn stains, grime and build-up we use the baking soda/bicarbonate of soda, this can also work nicely on removing soap scum on your shower doors. Mix the baking soda/bicarbonate of soda into a paste by adding a bit of water. Get an old cloth or rag and smear the paste thickly into the stubborn areas along the rails/tracks, as well as directly onto the glass doors where there are soap scum and build-up marks. Leave for 30 minutes. 30 minutes. Wipe down with a wet cloth and this should remove the soap scum and any tougher build-up and grime.
Finally, be sure to rinse the areas well after wiping down.
*If you have not done a good proper clean for a while then you might need to repeat steps 1 and 2. You can also try a metal scourer if needed.
