Your shower may be where you go to get clean, but it can be a thriving haven for mildew and grime. Cleaning your shower can be a big job, but it’s worth it to have a fresh, clean shower with this blog you will lear how to clean a shower very quickly.
Remove hair from the drain
Take apart a wire hanger or use a long, thin item such as a knitting hook. Grab a garbage can or a plastic bag to put the hair in. Then unscrew the cap on your drain or just reach in, depending on the style of your drain. Pull the hair out and throw it away. Keep pulling the hair out until the drain is clear.
The first step in cleaning the shower is to rinse the tiles, floor and walls with hot water for a few minutes. The heat removes surface dirt and expands the pores of the material to make cleaning easier.
Many times, showerhead cleaning is put off or skipped. But, if you take a closer look, you’ll notice all the scale buildup in the holes and realize it’s an important chore.
Fortunately, cleaning it is not difficult: just put on rubber gloves and soak it for a couple of hours in a container with a solution of water and vinegar or detergent, brush it out, and that’s it!
How to remove soap residue from tiles and surfaces
The next step is to get rid of soap scum and other residue left in the shower. Spray the surfaces with a shower cleaner, leave it on, following the directions on the product, and then rinse everything off. As always, read the label on cleaning products before using them. As a test, use the product on a small area of the surface first to check for unwanted effects. Keep the bathroom well ventilated and wear gloves and clothing to help protect your skin.
Cleaning a Shower Door

- Wipe away the cleaning agent with a soft cloth. Be careful not to use a brush or wire scrubber on a shower door, which can easily scratch. Choose a soft cloth, such as microfiber, to remove the cleaner and grime

Washing Your Curtain and Liner
Soak the curtain in a large bowl or bathtub with water and laundry soap. Let it soak for a few hours (or overnight).
Use an old toothbrush to scrub stubborn mildew stains.
Check if your curtain can be washed in the washing machine. If it is, put it in the washing machine with warm water, along with one or two towels – but without fabric softener, which is not good for the plastic.
