Do you want to get a sparkling clean shower? It seems that no matter how many “scrub free” shower sprays I try, none of them actually take away the soap scum and the stains… especially on the shower floor.
So it comes down to good ol’ fashioned elbow grease. A simple sponge never seems to do the trick, and I’ve tried the kinds with the rough scrubbing side. One time I bought a grout scrubbing brush because it has such firm bristles. That worked well, but it’s a small brush because it’s meant to be for that teeny tiny grout line. I also don’t like spraying my shower with cleaner and then leaning over it to breath it all in while I scrub… pretty sure that burning in my throat afterwards is a bad sign!!
So what works??
One day my husband bought some steel wool to use for a project he was doing in the garage and the lightbulb went off! YES! YES! YES! S.O.S. steel wool pads already contain cleaning agents so there’s no cleaning spray to breathe in while you scrub. And the steel wool scrubs so well that it cuts straight through:
- soap scum
- soap buildup on walls
- oils from your feet that stain the shower floor
- Water spots on the shower doors
I use S.O.S. pads from Clorox to get a sparkling clean shower. You can use them in your kitchen, bathroom, garage, and on your outdoor items like your grill, garden tools, and patio furniture! I love that it makes the job of scrubbing SOOOOO much easier!
For a sparkling clean shower:
- Wet down the walls and floor with warm or hot water. Get the steel wool pad wet as well.
- Start scrubbing all surfaces in the shower with the steel wool pad
- Let sit for a couple of minutes
- Rinse away all that grime so your shower will look like this…
Seriously, I should have taken a before picture because our shower gets disgusting!!!! And now it’s a beautiful, white haven for warm, peaceful showers!! Am I right? Who else showers sometimes just for a few minutes alone, I mean, why else do moms shower?! I’m kidding… kind of!
So next time you’re out shopping throw some S.O.S. pads in your cart. You’ll thank me later!
