Toothbrush Technique

If you have a small unused or old toothbrush, you can use it to clean your shower door. If the door has grease linings that need a thorough cleaning, you can use toothpaste and elbow grease to scrub those areas. 

Remove the Soap Residue from the Screens

Does your shower screen hold excessive soap residue, making it look dirty and faded? Well, worry not as it is cleanable! You have to fill a spray bottle with eucalyptus oil, use it over the soap residue, and wipe that down with a cloth. It will make your shower screens look pristine and clean.

Say Bye-Bye to Tile Grout

Tile grouts can be a hassle to clean up. So the best way to do it is by using effective solutions. Here, the practical solution is a vinegar mix. 

Use a spray bottle to spray this vinegar mix over the grout. Let it sit for around 10 minutes. Remember not to use harsh solutions like bleach as it can damage the quality.

After this, pick up a hard/stiff-bristled brush to lightly scrub over the grout. Voila, now you have clean tiles!

Clean Off Water Stains

Do you have water stains on the metal fixtures or door frames? That can be a sore view. You have to cut up a lemon, squeeze its juices, and use a sponge to wipe it over these stains. You will see crystal-clear surfaces with zero water stains within a few minutes. 

Cleaning the Showerhead

Cleaning the showerhead is easy! Simply unscrew or remove the head and douse it in a bucket of vinegar overnight. Cover the bucket during these hours. 

The next day rinse it thoroughly to eliminate stubborn water stains and clear any blockages.
