Soap scum is highly unavoidable. When you are taking a shower there’s is no way you can prevent soap from splash all over the place.
Most times you cannot see it but it is there. Unless you wash your shower each time you take a bath then you can be sure there’s no soap scum but who has time for that every day.
The worse that can happen is that when soap scum is left for some time it will become very difficult to remove. A few days ago I asked my son to clean his shower. I went in to take a look I slide my fingers on the tiles. It was just disgusting yet he claimed he cleaned it.
With what he cleaned it? I really don’t know. To remove soap scum it takes more than just a wipe with a piece of cloth. In this article, I will show you just how to remove stubborn soap scum and make your shower sparkle like never before. How to prevent it is not far behind.
SOAP SCUM ON SHOWER WALLS
For fresh soap scum simply make a home mixture with distilled vinegar with an equal amount of water. Use this mixture to mist the wall then wash with a fragrance liquid soap.
To make your shower smell even better dab a few drops of your favorite essential oil into the soap. This will remove the smell of the vinegar.
OLD SOAP SCUM
To remove old soap scum make a paste of liquid soap, lemon juice, and baking soda. Apply to the spots and let it sit for 15 minutes. Use a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser (wet) to scrub the walls of the shower. Rinse well and dry.
SOAP SCUM ON SHOWER GLASS DOOR
Combine in a spray bottle 1 part Dawn dish soap and 1 part distilled vinegar. Close the door and mist. Do not wipe right away as you want to enable the solution to penetrate for 20 minutes.
Allow the solution to drip in the shower then scrub the surface with an abrasive cloth or my most loved, Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. Rinse with warm water and dry.
I thought I might just carry on by telling you how to prevent soap scum from forming on your shower walls and doors. You are not going to believe that this actually works. I know this because I tried it and it works for up a week.
That title was not a mistake. If you wipe on WD-40 onto your shower doors, walls, and faucets your soap scum trouble will be over.
The spray is slightly oil base and can be used to clean away spots on glass and prevent soap from drying on all the abovementioned.
Now that you have learned t the ways of removing fresh soap scum, stubborn soap scums, and even how to prevent soap scum. You can go ahead and wash your shower like a pro. Thanks for stopping by, see you soon!
