Do They Work in the Shower?

Dear 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 film that is on the walls anyway. Soap is soap!

Remember to 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 film and mold away.

Yes, the Rubba Scrubba and the Rags in a Bag do work well in your tub and shower. I keep one of each in my tub for exfoliating dry skin on my legs and arms. I BacktoBasicscodekeep another set under the sink to do my Swish and Swipe everyday.
