Do They Work on Ceramic Tile?

Rags in a BagDear FlyLady,

Do the Rubba Scrubba and Rags in a Bag work on a ceramic tile shower too?? I have been swishing and swiping my toilet and sink but I have to admit my shower has gotten nasty!! I have soap film and mold all over. (I can’t believe I just admitted that to everyone!) But I have never found products that help me keep it clean or that can clean it very well. I’m always afraid of the toxicity of it since we don’t have a bathroom window. Any ideas would be appreciated so I can add my shower to my daily Swish and Swipe routine!



Dear Summer,

A little elbow grease is never toxic. What we recommend for your shower is while you are taking your shower, clean just a little of it each day. Eventually it will be as shiny as your sink. The soap I recommend is the same soap you use on your body. That is the soap scum that is on the walls anyway. Soap is soap!

Keep the shower door or curtain open so that it will dry. Once the shower dries, you can close the curtain. Run a little fan to keep the air moving. It is the daily routine of swishing and swiping your shower that keeps the soap and mold away.

Yes, the Rubba Scrubba and the Rags in a Bag do work well in your tub and shower. I keep one in my tub for exfoliating dry skin on my legs and arms. The Rubba Scrubba is gentle enough that it won’t remove the grout in your bathroom.  They are excellent tools to keep in your bathroom so using them becomes part of your daily routines.
