How To Clean Soap Scum From Your Shower

The one thing that can stop your bathroom from looking Pinterest ready is gnarly soap scum all over the shower screen. Soap scum doesn’t just make your shower look dirty, it can be a real hassle to constantly have to clean. Plus once you do so you’ll probably notice it keeps coming back.

Never fear as in today’s post we will tell you everything you need to know about this pesky unwanted addition to your shower glass, so you can get rid of it for good.

What Causes Soap Scum?

You might think your shower and hair care products are all to blame. But you might be surprised to learn that even tap water contains sediment, which is why as window cleaners, we use pure water instead. So imagine what the effect is when the same substance runs over your shower glass?

This sediment along with the foaming properties of your shower gel or shampoo aren’t rinsed away effectively, since even the water itself leaves debris behind on the glass. Whatsmore, conditioner can have a slimy texture as it’s meant to change the condition of your hair. All of which can combine to create soap scum across your shower glass.

How To Remove Soap Scum

When it comes to removing soap scum, the best course of action is to clean it away as soon as you notice it, as the build-up can become extremely visible. To do so, it’s imperative you use products specifically designed to remove soap scum. Anything else will only make the problem worse or even damage the surface of the glass if it’s too abrasive.

A great product for the job is the Unger Rub Out Hard Water Stain Remover. Simply add a few drops onto a cloth and buff in a circular overlapping motion. As well as soap scum, it will cut through limescale which can also be a problem in bathrooms. Rinse away and your glass is as good as new!

Protect Your Glass Against Soap Scum

As the old saying goes, ‘prevention is better than the cure’. This is certainly true with soap scum since it will continually be added to your shower screen even by just running the water. Add body products and conditioner to the mix, and it can soon turn into a stained mess on your shower glass.
