Shower tiles have the remarkable ability to transform any bathroom into a dazzling haven of cleanliness and freshness. It’s no wonder they’re a top choice among homeowners seeking that pristine look. However, despite the constant flow of water, shower tiles can easily lose their luster and become a breeding ground for grime. The thought of scrubbing away at the tiles and grout can be daunting and exhausting. But fret not! We’re here to unveil five effective ways to effortlessly restore the brilliance of your shower tiles, all while embracing eco-friendly house cleaning practices. Get ready to witness the transformation without breaking a sweat!
#1. Baking soda and hydrogen peroxide
Baking soda and hydrogen peroxide are items you can get easily—you may already have them in your home!
To make a cleaning paste for your tiles, mix half baking soda and half hydrogen peroxide. Then, put the mixture on the stained tiles and leave it sitting for one hour. After time’s up, rinse the tiles. Besides cleaning them, this paste will leave your shower tiles with a shiny finish.
#2. Vinegar and baking soda
Another magical paste you can make out of ingredients you surely have at home!
Mix baking soda and white vinegar until forming a thick paste. Both products will bubble on contact, but don’t worry. Then apply the mixture to the stained tiles and leave it there for an hour. Once the time’s up, you can spray the tiles with more vinegar and wait until it stops bubbling. Finally, rinse with plain water. That should take care of all the grime!
#3. Vinegar and dish soap
Another option is to make a cleaning mix out of vinegar and soap. All you need to do is mix equal parts white vinegar and dishwashing soap in a spray bottle. That’s it! You have a homemade cleaner.
Now you can spray the shower tiles with the cleaning solution and leave them for one hour. Then, wipe the stains with a soft cloth and rinse the tiles. The dirt and grime will give way to clean tiles!
#4. Bleach and hot water
Most of these solutions involve baking soda or vinegar. So If you don’t have any of these ingredients, you can clean your tiles with chlorine bleach and water.
Mix one part bleach and four parts water. The water will dilute the chemicals from the bleach to make the solution milder so it doesn’t damage the tiles. This method is sure to get the job done!
Note: Handle chlorine bleach with care. Besides, using undiluted bleach may damage the finish of your tiles and make them lose their shine.
#5. Steam clean
The previous method may be too abrasive if your shower is just slightly dirty. In that case, the best solution is to steam clean your shower tiles.
To steam clean your tiles, you only need to keep the shower running with hot water for five to ten minutes. Let the steam build to loosen up the dirt and grime, then wash the stains away. Be careful not to get burned with the hot water!
