When there’s soap scum build-up and mould in your bathroom, cleaning it can be an extremely daunting task. Luckily, it doesn’t have to be difficult with the right cleaning products for bathroom tiles, the right method, and maybe even a little music to keep you going.

How To Keep Shower Tiles Clean?

The first step in cleaning shower tiles and grout, is to rinse the tiles of the shower and bathroom area 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.

Next, you’ll want to get rid of all the soap scum and other residue in your shower. We recommend using a good shower grout cleaner like the new Handy Andy UltraFast Bathroom Spray. The new formula is fast acting and highly effective in cleaning bathroom dirt, limescale and soap scum quickly.

When cleaning grout in shower tiles as well as the tiles themselves, spray the Handy Andy spray directly onto the area. For really tough stains, limescale and mould, leave the product on for about a minute to allow the fast-acting molecules to work their magic.

Lastly, wipe away the spray off the tiles and grout with a dry, soft cloth. You can expect the new formula to lift the toughest dirt, leaving the tiles super shiny and clean.

Oh, and don’t forget to put on your favourite music in the background while you work. It’ll make you feel happier, and your cleaning task will go much smoother.

What To Use To Clean Shower Tiles & Grout

If you’ve got really tough dirt in the bathroom, here are a few hacks to use when cleaning the bathroom, apart from using the best shower tile and grout cleaner you can find like Handy Andy.

  • For stubborn mould, spray your Handy Andy UltraFast Spray directly onto the mouldy area and leave for one minute. Then take an old toothbrush and apply a little elbow grease.

  • If you’re really struggling with stubborn stains or limescale, try applying some white vinegar to the affected area as well.

  • If the grouting in your bathroom has stained dark and has stubborn dirt on, try applying hydrogen peroxide to the grout only. Scrub it in with an old toothbrush and this should lift the colour of the grout back to a whiter shade.
