Guide to Shower Cleaning
The shower in any bathroom takes up a large part of both the bathroom’s space as well as its functionality. So to keep it as clean as it can be is extremely important. Before all the frustration and annoyance of cleaning the shower takes hold of you, always remember that cleaning the shower perhaps pays the most dividends in terms of the way your bathroom looks.
It’s amazing what a good bathroom cleaner and a bit of elbow grease can achieve. A shower that gleams is a shower that shouts cleanliness, organisation and luxury. So don’t be discouraged by the work, it will pay off, we guarantee it.
1) Clean Regularly
Cleaning regularly not only gets the most out of your bathroom’s potential, it also makes life a little easier. Neglecting cleaning, on the other hand, creates problems that are not easily solved. In fact, the CDC (Centres of Disease Control) forwards that a dirty shower can create a number of threats to health which currently include anything from coughing and sneezing right through to throat & eye irritation.
2) How to Clean the Shower Glass
The shower is a bathroom product that is used daily so it makes sense that is it cleaned regularly. The constant use of soap, shampoo and shower gels take the glimmer and shine out of the shower glass. If you live in a hard water area, you’ll be more than familiar with the effects oflime scale on the glass itself.
To combat these downsides and keep your shower glass as good as new, we recommend cleaning the glass little and often, and also drying the glass after every use. Other methods recommended also include applying glass cleaner and cleaning the glass manually.
3) How to Clean a Shower Head.
Out of all the components of a shower, the shower head can often be the most tricky to clean and revamp. But not only is a clean shower head essential, it’s also pragmatically important.
When shower cleaning make sure the shower head is not neglected. First of all we recommend unscrewing the shower head away from the rest of the other components, and remember to clean inside the cover of the shower head.
After this, we recommend leaving the shower head to the soakinside hot soapy water for at least 15 minutes, this will be enough time to loosen any limescale that would have built up. After this clean with toothbrush until completely clean and clutter free.
Cleaning a shower can be of the utmost importance to maintain a bathroom’s functionality as well as its aesthetic value.
