Bathtub and Shower Cleaning

... A step by step guide.


The bathtub and shower are a perfect haven for mildew. To make the area easier to clean there are two things you can do.

1. Clean your bathtub and shower at regular intervals and

2. Make sure your bathtub and shower are as mildew unfriendly as possible.

For me the easiest part of bathtub and shower cleaning is spraying the tiled walls of the shower and the bathtub with mildew remover and letting it sit for about 15 minutes while I tackle the toilet cleaning.

I think that its the closest thing to a self cleaning bathtub and shower we are going to get for quite a while.

When I return to the bathtub and shower with most of the work already done by the mildew remover, there may still be some soap scum, dirt and mildew residue to wipe and scrub away.

Before you get to scrubbing, here are some tools and materials you can use:


A Rinse Ace Sprayer With Valve


Tub and Tile Cleaner



Decalcifying Gel - to remove lime and calcium deposits that build up inside your shower head causing a slow flow.



  • Use a bucket and mix a solution of water and tub and tile cleaner in it
  • Use a bathtub stopper in order to prevent a build up in the drain causing it to clog up
  • Use rubber gloves. I sure you want to keep those hands in good condition.
  • Now that you are prepared, let us begin.

    First, using the rinse ace sprayer, let the water spray against the tiled shower walls and in the bathtub. Once the water has touched all the areas in the bathtub and shower walls start scrubbing.

    Using the tile and tub scrubber gently scrub away the scum and dirt that was not affected by the mildew remover.

    When you are satisfied that your shower walls and bathtub are scrubbed clean, take a rag, dip in the bucket and wipe the outside of the bathtub. Now rinse by taking a clean rag, soak it with clean water and wipe the outside of the bathtub again.

    You're almost done, just spray down the shower walls and bathtub again to remove residue resulting from the scrubbing and cleaning.

    Once that's complete, remove the bathtub stopper and clean it at the bathroom sink. Then use a dry rag and wipe the bathtub and shower dry.

    Now to protect your tub drain and keep it clear, drop a Sani-Clean Stick into it.

    Now you have finished your bathtub and shower cleaning.
