Painstakingly scrubbing grout lines with a toothbrush is no one’s idea of a good time. So, how can you avoid this chore while still keeping your shower looking fresh? One solution is to incorporate mini-cleaning into your shower routine or just afterward. It’s fast and easy, and most importantly, can prevent your shower space from becoming a mess of mildew due to procrastination. To quickly clean and maintain your shower, focus on:
- Removing moisture – Squeegee your shower walls and glass doors after every shower. Mildew thrives in a damp environment, so wicking water away will help prevent its spread.
- Tackling the grout – Home cleaning professionals recommend scrubbing your grout once every two or three weeks using a 1:5 vinegar/water mixture to prevent mildew from spreading. Pro tip: Avoid using bleach on grout because it strips away water repellency, making grout even more susceptible to mildew.
- Clean the tiles – Once every week, use the 1:5 vinegar/water solution to clean the tiles, or simply spray the walls with a shower cleaner diluted 10 parts water to one part cleaner. In either case, just spray the dilution and let it dry.
