Honestly, I was amazed at how well this cleaning trick worked for removing stains, scale, and mold. The pictures below are from a newly purchased home with a neglected shower. Mold had grown on on the lower seals and grout. Some serious cleaning was needed to restore these surfaces.

Mix equal quantities on baking soda and bleach together to make a paste. Add more baking soda if the concoction is too fluid. Smear the past on the surfaces of the shower at the end of the day so it can set overnight.
