Tip for Cleaning Shower Walls and Doors

By: Joe Truini


Whether they are made of porcelain, acrylic, ceramic tile or glass, shower walls and doors are notoriously difficult to keep clean. Fill a soap-dispensing dish scrubber with half grease-cutting dish detergent and half white vinegar. Scrub the surface, then wipe with a cloth or paper towel.

    Do you just wipe this off and not rinse? I’m going to try this tonight when I get back home. Thanks

    Don’t use steel wool but a scrubber like the one in the pic HASNT been at all harmful in my acrilic lined shower, and as to the floor , it looks like small tile but it’s not. It was looking TERRIBLE I gave it the once over as described and WAHLA!!! My wife thinks I’m a genius, lucky guy

    Test first and make sure that the soap wand has a non-abrasive pad. They come in a couple different types. The ‘green’ kind will certainly scratch the plastic. Also, I’d mix the solution before pouring it into the wand. It looked like the vinegar just ran out.

    Abrasive pad on acrylic wall? Wouldn’t it scratch?
