Swishing, Swiping and Scrubbing

purpleragsHalfsaleDear FlyLady,

My shower stall is a mess! Mildew and icky orange stuff. How is the best way to clean it up?

Thanks a million.



Dear Debbie,

If you want to stop mildew and mold from growing in your shower; you need to get the air moving. I was taught by a nurse that mold will not grow in moving air. Get a small fan and set it outside your bathroom to blow air into your bathroom. Also open the shower door or pull back the shower curtain. This will help the shower to dry. After the walls dry you will need to close the shower curtain for it to dry.

I like to bless my sweet darling by cleaning his shower for him once a month. Since we got the Rubba Scrubba, I like to use one on corners and floor.  Robert is really good about keeping his shower door open to allow it to dry.

You can clean your shower just a little each time you are in it. While the conditioner is on your hair, you can scrub a little area in your shower. After about a week of doing just a little every day your shower will clean and shiny.

Kathy uses our FlyLady Mop on their showers and bathtubs. Our FlyLady Mop has an adjustable handle. They set the handle in its shortest position. You can use it wet to scrub the walls or dry to soak up the moisture.

I keep a Rubba Scrubba in my tub. I rarely take a shower since I love my bath time. My Rubba Scrubba helps me keep my tub jets clean. It hangs on a hook. You can also use your purple rag to get rid of the soap film that is left behind. It works well. My sister-in-law could not believe what a great job it did on her shower doors.

My favorite cleaner for my tub and shower is the same stuff I use on my hair and body. It will really work on the soap film it makes. Soap is soap!

To help eliminate mold and mildew I like to use a very mild solution of bleach water in a spray bottle. The recipe is 1 part bleach to 10 parts water. This will help to keep the mold and mildew from growing.

With my Rubba Tools , Purple Rags, and our FlyLady mop; we keep our showers clean! Together my bathroom is company ready! I love how it blesses me!
