A Clean Shower in 5 Easy Steps

Cleaning your shower/ tub might be one of the least fun things you can think of. There’s just so much to wipe down and so little space for your body when you’re trying to scrub away. We’ve spent years working on the perfect way to get the tub sparkling so get ready to take notes, we’ve got a few tips for you that’s about to make the cleaning a whole lot easier.


  1. Go in with a Plan

Probably one of the most daunting parts about cleaning the shower is just thinking about it. It’s easy to get overwhelmed when you think about how much effort you’re about to put in. Gather the supplies you’ll need:

  • Tile brush
  • Cleaning solution (we recommend an all-natural degreaser/disinfectant)
  • Drying towel(s)
  • Squeegee
  • Baking soda
  • Rinse cup


  1. Start on the Wall Opposite of the Shower Head

Spray down all the walls with your cleaning solution, then start scrubbing on the wall opposite of the shower head. We recommend circular motions, going top to bottom with your tile brush. Keep rotating around until you’ve scrubbed all the walls.


  1. Bring in the Baking Soda

Give the tub a thorough spraying with your cleaning solution and sprinkle a generous amount of baking soda in to the bottom, this is what’s really going to get the grim off the bottom of the tub. Once again, go in circular motions with your tile brush until you’ve worked most of the baking soda in.


  1. Time to Rinse

Fill up your rinse cup with the faucet and start on your first wall. We usually press the top of the cup right against the wall then drag it across letting the water run down the wall as it washes off the cleaner. Be sure to rinse out the bottom of the tub too.


  1. Dry Time

Pull out the squeegee and run it along the walls, this will really cut down your dry time and help prevent water spots. After you’ve squeegeed whip out your drying towel. We’ll usually have two on hand so that we can stand on one in the shower in order to not leave footprints. Dry off your walls and the bottom of your tub.


BOOM you’re done! That wasn’t so bad, especially since you had a plan. We hope these tips were helpful in conquering the dirty shower dilemma, but if it’s something you NEVER want to do again think about hiring Maid to Shine the next time you need a good clean.

  1. These easy steps are going to be great someone lazy like me. I just hate to clean my shower as well as bathroom. But after shifting to our new home having a lovey showering stall, I just can’t leave it dirty anymore. Thanks for sharing nice tips on that. Keep it up buddy..:)

  2. I’ve never had much success when it comes to getting my shower tiles looking brand new and sparkly, however, I hired a tile cleaning company in Spring, TX and the results were AMAZING. I didn’t actually know my tile and grout could look so good. We’ll definitely be trusting in our professional tile cleaners from now on.

  3. Hi!

    People think that cleaning the shower is easy but you have to get inside, get wet (sometimes) and clean it.

    Prefer cleaning kitchen than bathroom or bathtubs 😉

    Thanks for the tips!

  4. Awesome, I’m going to try this, this weekend! I have the hardest time cleaning my shower, tile and grout usually and have been trusting in a Spring tile & grout cleaning for the last few years. Each time they visit my bathroom looks sparkly and new, it is wonderful for when people are visiting for the holidays. Really hope this is as effective though!

  5. Thanks for the tip about staring your shower cleaning on the wall opposite the shower head. It makes it so much easier to rinse the walls off when you’re finished and give me a place to focus when I start my bathroom cleaning. I’ll definitely keep using these shower cleaning tips.

  6. These tips were exceptionally helpful. I have been having trouble cleaning my tub, and I had no idea that baking soda could be used as a cleaning agent. Thank you for the tip!

  8. I liked what you said about how you can prevent water spots by running a squeegee along the walls to dry them faster. My uncle noticed that his bathroom has a lot of grout that is really gross and he really wants to get it fixed so that it will be cleaner. Getting a professional to help could be really useful and allow him to enjoy his home more and make his job easier.
