Learning how to clean a shower in a methodical manner means you’ll always be sure it’s hygienic and clean. Here’s a step-by-step approach for how to clean your shower.
How to Clean the Shower in 5 Steps
1. Give the Shower an Initial Rinse
Your first step when cleaning out the shower is to rinse the tiles, floor, and walls of the shower with hot water for a couple of minutes. Not only will this address the superficial mess, but the heat will expand the pores of all the surface materials and make it easier to clean.
2. How to Clean a Shower Head
Cleaning shower heads is an often overlooked step in bathroom maintenance routines, but if you’ve ever paused for a minute to look at the limescale caking the small holes on your shower head, you’ll realise it’s an important task. It isn’t difficult to learn how to clean a showerhead: simply soak it in a tub filled with vinegar solution, or detergent, for a couple of hours, then scrub the gunk away! If the shower head is fixed to the wall, you can fill a resealable plastic bag with vinegar and use rubber bands to affix it to the shower head, letting it soak for a while before removing and rinsing.
