Tips for cleaning your walk-in bath or shower

How do you clean a walk-in bath or shower?

Clean it regularly

The best way to clean your shower is to do it as often as possible. By doing this, you will often find that you will hardly need to do a huge clean at all. The easiest way to do this is by spraying your bathroom with some mild cleaning products, including limescale remover, after your shower or bath. Followed by a quick wipe of the surfaces, you may find that you won’t have to scrub on your hands and knees ever again!

Keep a cleaning cloth and multi-use spray nearby and ensure that you clean your bathroom often to keep your new walk-in bath sparkling. A quick clean will only take around 10-15 minutes!

Use the right products

If you have the right tools it makes the job much easier. This mantra can be applied to cleaning your walk-in shower or bath as the right products for the job can make it easier.

How do you clean a walk-in shower floor and shower tray?

The best way to clean a shower floor is to clean it after you have just used it as the hot air and water will loosen up any dirt.

The area around the shower doors can get dirty so you might need to put a bit of elbow grease into it when you are cleaning this area. It is best to use a sponge or even a toothbrush to access the crevices.

If you have a textured floor in your shower, then this can be slightly more difficult to clean. If the dirt is stubborn to remove some people recommend using white vinegar to get rid of it, while others suggest using a mixture of four parts of mineral oil to one-part warm water.

If you are cleaning tiles around a shower or bath there are some cleaning products you can use to help. An extendable bathroom tile cleaner is a great tool people with mobility problems can buy as this means you don’t have to stretch for hard to reach places. Tools such as this make it much safer to clean your walk-in shower or bath and they will get rid of any soap scum or dirt very easily.

How to take care of your walk-in bathtub?

If you’ve purchased a new walk-in bath you will want to make sure it remains in good working order for years to come.

Regular cleaning is the best way to ensure the tub looks as good as new and this means you might need to buy an appropriate surface cleaner and a jet and pump system cleaner as well. To clean the inside of the tub you will need to grab your white vinegar solution, bathroom cleaners, a cleaning cloth and a dry towel or cloth.

As described in the shower section, it is best to clean the walk-in bath after you’ve just used it, but you should also try to do a deep clean every month. These tips should also be used if you have purchased a used walk-in bath or shower.
