While you take a shower or a bath every day, you have to clean your shower and bathtub regularly to keep your shower and bathtub as well as yourself clean.

No need to doubt, the first thing to do before you actually clean your shower or bathtub is to clear out all the shampoo and liquid soap bottles or whatever. You do not need them for your cleaning and by leaving them there, you will certainly find them as “obstacles” later. For easy to restore them to their position, you may put them all into a bucket.

Begin your cleaning with a rinse first. You should rinse the floor and the walls with hot water. This help to get some of the bigger and less sticky dirt and stains off from the wall and floor.

Then you may wish to clean the drain first as you wish the dirty water to flow away. If you have long hairs, it is an even more important part of works for your shower cleaning.  Unscrew the drain cap and wrap your hand with a plastic bag. Use a crochet hook or your finger to pull the hairs out.

To remove the dirt, mildew, stain and soap scum, you can try market ones or the homemade ones. For market ones, the popular ones include Church & Dwight. It offers a Scrub Free soap scum cleaner, Scrub Free mildew stain remover and Arm & Hammer daily scum and mildew preventer.

The SCRUB FREE Soap Scum Remover helps dissolve soap scum on your shower walls and doors leaving them shiny and bright. A fresh lemon scent also comes along with such cleaning power. The SCRUB FREE Mildew Stain Remover helps clean those stubborn mildew stains fast and leaves behind a fresh scent too! The Arm & Hammer daily scum and mildew preventer can prevent soap scum build-up for every day purpose.

You may also try Mr.Clean reach scrubbing tub and shower pad. But to do that, you should first get their mop. Many users like this Mr. Clean pad very much for its powerful cleaning power and easy to use nature.

Other than the Church & Dwight, you can also homemade the cleaner for yourself. Basically what you need are vinegar and baking soda. Remove mildew. Mix 1 cup of vinegar, 1/2 cup baking soda, 1 cup ammonia, and a gallon and a half of hot water, then use a sponge to apply the mixture onto the shower walls and doors. For water stain, you can try mixing vinegar and hot water at equal portion to scrub the stain. You can increase the portion of vinegar if you want a more effective one. Vinegar can also be used to clean the shower curtain. As the shower curtain can be made of plastic, it is not recommended to soak the curtain for too long and by using a too concentrated vinegar solution.
