How to Clean a Shower – 6 Tips from Plano, TX Maids

Plano TX maids

The Land of Clean maids in Plano, Texas know how to clean showers.

Quick Shower Cleaning Tips from Professional Maids

Showers are one of the most neglected areas when cleaning a house. After all, a shower is often used several times a day so it must be fairly clean already, right? Wrong. Look at your shower. There are probably spots, stains, mineral deposits and other dirty items hiding in plain sight. Our Plano, TX maids at the Land of Clean are here to offer a few tips on how to clean up overlooked areas of the shower.

Clean that Mildew and Soap Scum on the Shower Curtain

Feeling lazy? No need to call a maid (although we would like you to call our maids in Plano), use your washing machine to clean the shower curtain for you. Add 1/4 to 1/2 cup laundry detergent and 1 cup white vinegar along with a few old light colored towels to your washing machine. Place the shower curtain inside. Run the machine using warm water on a normal cycle. Remove the shower curtain from the washing machine and hand. Don’t put the shower curtain in the dryer.

Simple Way to Keep a Plastic Shower Walls and Doors Clean

An old way to upkeep the walls and doors of the shower is to apply a coat of car wax to these areas. Use a squeegee after showering to keep clean and relatively free of mildew.  Do not use this method on the floor of the shower. Too slippery. If any wax gets on the floor, remove with a mild cleaner.

A Natural Way to Clean Shower Door Tracks

The maids at Land of Clean in Plano love recommending white vinegar as a natural daily cleaner whenever possible. To clean shower door tracks, plug up any holes and gaps with some rolled up bits of paper towel. Pour white vinegar into the tracks. Let sit for around half an hour. Unplug the holes and rinse with water and wipe with a clean rag. This will help remove any gunk in the area.

A Few Ways to Maintain Clean Tile and Grout

Make your own tile and grout cleaner. Combine 1 part borax with 2 parts baking soda and around 1 part hot water as needed to make a thick paste. Apply this paste to the grout and scrub with a soft brush. Rinse and repeat as needed. For more difficult stains, combine some baking soda with chlorine bleach (no borax) as a paste. Make sure that you use it in a well ventilated area. Allow to dry on the grout then rinse off.

Our maids have not tried this cleaning method. We’ve heard of it before and decided to pass it on. If you can find one, use a dry typewriter eraser on dry grout to remove mold and mildew stains.

How to Clean Mineral Deposits from Shower Heads

Get some white vinegar. Add to a plastic bag. Tie the plastic bag filled with white vinegar around the shower head and leave overnight. The next day, remove the bag and scrub the head with a soft brush. Run the shower with hot water. Your shower head should be nearly as good as new.

Try this to Clean Chrome Faucets

If you are in a hurry, a dry sheet of fabric softener on dry faucets work wonders to shine up chrome. If you have more time, add some white vinegar to a sponge to wipe down faucets. This should help remove soap scum and water spots. Another solution is to use rubbing alcohol to clean spots off of faucets. Be sure to dry and buff to a shine after cleaning.
