Need some help!

I have one silly but continual problem.

I am having a hard time cleaning my shower. I clean it every other week but I will admit...I am not a good scrubbing kind of cleaner.

Anybody have a great cleaner out there that they love and would recommend?

I have tried it all:

-Scrubbing Bubbles Foam
-Meyers Natural Spray

But I need some suggestions.

I suppose it depends on what type of shower you have...if you have tile or a smooth surface. I used to have tile, and the grout was a pain to keep clean. I really like Tilex with mildew remover for tile. I just recently moved and I now have a smooth surface shower...I have been using soft scrub...and I've liked that. I also started using tilex fresh shower daily spray..only I use it every few days. When I get out, I'll spray the shower and it helps keep the soap scum off the doors and such. Oh..another option is to get a scrubbing bubbles automatic shower cleaner. My grandma has one of those as its hard for her to get in and clean her shower all the time and she really likes it.

I hope this helps you in some kind of way...I'm no bathroom expert...I hate cleaning it, but I know how annoying it is to not be able to keep it clean.

I've been wondering about those automatic sprayer-cleaner things. Maybe you can get one, use it & report back so the rest of us know whether or not to spend our money buying it. LOL!

Don't you like my suggestion? What? You don't want to spend $25 on something that probably doesn't work anyway? either. I thought I might be able to talk you into it though.

I love, love, love Soft Scrub (lemon).
Don't let the word "soft" throw you.
She cleans like nobody's business!

I just spray the whole shower down with the same spray I use on the counter tops (fantastic, scrubbing bubbles, whatever) I let it sit while I scrub around the tub and wipe the fixtures down and then I tackle the shower with a Mr. Clean sponge and elbow grease. Lots of elbow grease.

A hint to keep your shower really clean for a long time in between cleaning is to turtle wax it. Its a Marine Corps thing. It makes field daying the barracks easier apparently. Just a world of caution if you turtle wax the walls, dont put your leg up there to shave. I learned that the hard way when we were first married.

If you can find some change in the bottom of your purse, go out and get some vinegar and baking soda - best cleaner EVER and will clean just about anything. (I was most impressed with it on the gas stove top) Supposedly, it will even clean stains on the carpet, but I have not ventured there yet.

I'm not a fan of cleaning, but when you find a cleaner that works, it sure makes it easier.

By the way, if you use a squeegee on the walls/glass door after every use, that cuts down on the soap scum and hard water stains.

Good luck!

I think it's elbow grease for me. I've been using a Method cucumber cleaner on everything and it actually cuts the grime really well.
