Shower Cleaning Made Easy without the Use of Noxious Chemicals

$20
3 Minutes
Easy

Shower cleaning has to be one of my least favorite chores.
The tight space combined with cleaning solutions is just flat out aggravating.
Plus, if you have mold or mildew sometimes you're forced to use chemicals like bleach or ammonia (which I try to avoid since my wife has asthma & allergies!!).
All these things persuaded me to try Wet & Forget Shower because it uses surfactants instead of harsh chemicals to clean.

Plus, I did an 11 week experiment to see if it really would work. One half of our shower walls and doors got the Wet & Forget while the other half didn't.

The most striking result was the elimination of the red or orangish film that forms in grout lines. Wet & Forget did an awesome job at stopping this from happening.

Mildew and mold were also prevented in the treated versus untreated area. This is good news for anyone who can't bend down to get to these hard to reach places.

The only kind of surface that you shouldn't use Wet & Forget Shower on is natural marble because of its porosity. I checked this out before using it :)
And finally, the soap scum formation was halted on our glass shower door.

In case you're interested I shared a video of my results along with other tips on my blog. And there's a special surprise for anyone who reads to the end of the post!! So don't miss out. Here's the link http://www.homerepairtutor.com/wet-and-forget-shower-experiment/

Great side by side comparison. The left wall was treated and the corner/right wall were not.

Our glass shower door remained clean on the right and the left side (although not real apparent in this photo) had soap scum film.
