A bathroom with clean tiles looks fantastic! But cleaning them can quickly become a multi-hour session and leave you with sore hands and arms.
Of course, you can’t opt to skip cleaning your shower tiles because mold and mildew will appear when you least expect them.
So, what’s the best option? Simple; clean your tiles the easy way! Here is a list of the best (and most practical) methods to thoroughly clean your shower tiles—no scrubbing involved!
How to clean shower tiles without scrubbing
There are various ways to leave your shower tiles spotless without much effort, but their effectiveness depends on the level of dirt on your tiles. Next, you’ll find those methods arranged from least to most powerful.
Method #1. A hot shower
Steam is enough for removing a light layer of dirt on your tiles. However, if the grime is tougher, this technique will only help you as a pre-treatment to loosen it.
First, turn on the hot water in your shower and let it run, closing your bathroom curtains or door to trap as much steam as possible. After five minutes, turn off the water carefully and wipe the tiles in a circular motion with a rough-textured rag.
Note: If you have a detachable shower head, let the hot water stream run over the dirtier spots.
Method #2. Vinegar time!
If you used the previous method as a warm-up (or it didn’t work as intended), follow up with this one to remove all the remaining grime.
For this trick, you’ll need to mix equal parts of warm water and white vinegar and spray it on the dirty surfaces. Let the solution sit for about 30 minutes to allow the vinegar to do its magic.
After time’s up, dampen a clean cloth with lukewarm water and wipe away the grime on the tiles. You can instead directly wash your tiles with hot water if you have a removable shower head. Finally, grab a clean cloth and dry all the surfaces.
Method #3. Baking soda paste
For cleaning grout or challenging grime, try baking soda! This kitchen staple will help you remove tough stains and foul odors equally.
Mix half a cup of baking soda and a few tablespoons of water. Mess around with quantities until getting a thickness similar to toothpaste. Next, spread the paste with a clean cloth, making circular motions and getting into the grout.
Wait for ten minutes, then clean the area with a coarse cloth dampened in warm water. Use the same circular movements as before. Finally, rinse the tiles and dry them with a clean towel.
Pro tip: Spray vinegar over the paste for maximum effectiveness.
