Shower Scum Removal
It is often recommended by the experts that preventing soap scum build up in the first place is the best way to defend your showers and tubs from the problem. If soap scum has gotten the best of you and you need a good old fashioned cleaning in your shower and tubs than get ready to roll up your sleeves and get to work with some cleaning tips & tricks.
When cleaning soap scum in your showers and tubs it is important to realize that soap scum is the combination of hard water minerals and soap "fat" that bind together and adhere to your bathroom surfaces. Removing soap scum can be done with any product that breaks down fat.
Bathtub Scum Removal Techniques
Home remedies include a paste made of baking soda and water. Liberally spread the paste over the tub or shower and let sit for 15 to 30 minutes. Gently scrub the paste in a circular motion with a shower brush and rinse clean. It is important to wipe down the walls with a soft clean towel for the best results.
Vinegar is another inexpensive and excellent product to cut the fat and remove soap scum and hard water spots in your showers and tubs. Pour white vinegar or apple cider vinegar into a spray bottle and liberally spray the entire surface of your tub or shower. Let the vinegar sit for at least 10 minutes and wipe clean with a sponge of shower brush. Rinse clean and dry with a soft, clean towel.
There are many commercial grade soap scum removal products on the market, but we recommend this natural approach to combat your soap scum problems first. If you use these home remedies and you still need a more powerful product than you can confidently try a commercial cleaner on your soap scum problem. Revisiting the experts' advice, it is a good idea to wipe down, squeegee off or spray down your shower or tub after each use to prevent soap scum build up.
