Nina from Nevada asks:
Do you have any suggestions for cleaning a textured shower floor? The Mr Clean Magic Erasers work OK, but they are really expensive and don’t last long. I’ve also tried bleach and a scrub brush but that didn’t really get the floor clean.
I’ll start with the cheapest.
Use ammonia to clean it. Let it sit and then use a stiff brush again. (Be sure that you don’t use Ammonia if there is still bleach there. When Bleach and Ammonia mix, they create a toxic gas, That would ruin your whole day 😉 ) Ammonia works well for a gummy greasy scum build up.
You may try soaking it in vinegar and then scrubbing it with the stiff brush. This works best if you have hard water deposits or mineral build up.
I use a cleaner called The Works for those really hard areas. You spray it on, let it sit five minutes and then use a stiff brush and most of it comes out. It’s pretty cheap, about $2, a bottle at Wal-Mart or most Dollar General type stores. It is by far the best cleaner we have found for cleaning very dirty bathrooms.
The trick is going to be to let it soak to loosen the grim and then scrub really well. You may have to use a really stiff brush such as a grout brush to get it clean.
