Steps to Clean Your Shower without Using Any Chemical Cleanser

Many homeowners avail professional bathroom remodeling services to completely transform the look and feel of their bathroom. Some people even spend a lot of money to modernize their bathroom to enjoy a spa-like experience. But after remodeling the bathroom, you need to consider some simple options to keep the area fresh and comfortable.

For instance, you must avoid using chemical cleansers to avoid their harmful smell. Instead of using the chemical cleansers, you can clean you shower using some simple ingredients. The homemade bathroom cleansers are also effective in enhancing the look and performance of your bathroom shower without causing any harm or damage to the environment.
  1. Take a spray bottle and get it filled with undiluted vinegar. Identify the areas of your shower affected by mold or mildew developments. Mist the affected areas of the shower by spraying undiluted vinegar. Allow the vinegar to sit for about 10 minutes to weaken the mold or mildew.
  2.  After 10 minutes, cover the surface of the shower by sprinkling a light coat of baking soda. After sprinkling the baking soda, you have to use a moistened sponge to scrub the shower.
  3. After scrubbing the shower, you can directly apply tablespoons of baking soda to the moistened sponge. Now use the sponge to thoroughly wipe the walls and areas of the shower misted with vinegar. Now use clean water to rinse the shower thoroughly till the baking soda and vinegar are removed completely.
  4. Similar to the shower, you also need to clean the shower head and removable fixtures. You can remove these fixtures from the shower, and place these in a bowl filled with a solution made of ½ cup of vinegar and one quart of boiling water. Allow the fixtures to soak in the solution for about 10 minutes. Now rinse the components thoroughly, and reattach these to the shower.
  5. You also have to dab a soft cloth in undiluted vinegar, and use it to wipe the fixtures that cannot be removed from the shower. You can even use the cloth dabbed in undiluted vinegar to wipe the glass for shower door. Similarly, the shower curtain can be cleaned using your washing machine after adding ½ cup of vinegar and ½ cup of baking soda.
