Shower Cubicle Cleaning Hacks

I was seconds away from completely gutting and renovating my entire bathroom before I discovered these easy shower cubicle cleaning hacks! You may think I’m exaggerating, but I’m not. I had two companies come out to give me an estimate on a complete remodel. However, after the initial shock of the quoted pricing for a bathroom overhaul wore off, I started doing some HEAVY Googling…

My husband and I were both at a loss with our stand-up shower. It is subway tiled on two sides and glass surround on the other two, with a shower tray base. Having lived in our home for a decade, cleaning weekly with Scrubbing Bubbles and daily with a shower stall spray and squeegee after every shower, we had yet to see our shower stall looking “clean”. There was always limescale around the fixtures, grime within the grout, calcium buildup around the stainless frame and a ring of yellowing around the drain.

No amount of sponge scrubbing, bleaching, or vinegar soaking worked. We were at a complete loss.
