As always, The Maids loves getting feedback from our fans and followers. Recently we got the question, “What’s the best way to scrub a tile shower?” What an excellent question! There are all sorts of different cleaning products out there, but they don’t always get the job done how we would like. Here is an inside look at how The Maids gets the job done.
Step 1: Pre-Scrub
Dobies are great for removing soap scum from shower doors and tile in the bathroom. Use a dry dobie to loosen soap scum build-up before you use your cleaning product.
Step 2: Spray & Soak
Pre-treat the entire shower surface with your favorite tub and tile cleaner, especially on areas of heavy buildup. Let it soak for five minutes to penetrate the soap scum, mold and mildew lurking in the grout and on the shower tiles.
Step 3: Scrub
Now that gunk on your shower walls is nice and loose, use the dobie to scrub the shower until the surface is clean. Reapply more tile cleaner as needed for areas with stubborn mold and mildew.
Step 4: Rinse
Use hot, clean water to wash off the excess soap from your shower doors and tiles. Letting the water run to a hotter temperature helps loosen leftover buildup.
Step 5: Dry
You just cleaned off the water spots, so why would you allow more water spots to form? Drying off the door and tiles is an essential step in cleaning your shower and should be something you do regularly to slow down the growth of mold, mildew and soap scum.
