Bathroom renovation ideas

Keep your shower screen looking great

When your bathroom renovation is complete, everything is glistening. But, as with anything, with a bit of use it will need to be cleaned to be brought back to look like new again.

One of the things that can really make a difference is cleaning the shower screen to remove built up lime deposits which makes the glass appear cloudy. Your first instinct may be to hit it with that new, improved soap scum remover you bought from Coles but it can be removed easily by mixing a 50/50 mixture of white vinegar.

  1. Mix a 50/50 solution of water and white vinegar in a plastic spray bottle
  2. Remove everything from the shower and rinse the screen and walls. You might as well remove the residue from the walls and fittings while you’re cleaning the screen too.
  3. Spray the surfaces with the solution and with a soft cloth or sponge, wipe over the area you want cleaned. It’s a good idea to have a bucket of clean water beside you so you can rinse the cloth or sponge out to clean it as you go.
  4. Then, once you’ve done this, rinse the cleaned surfaces with plain water to remove the vinegar solution and the remaining scum.

If you do this once every couple of weeks, you’ll find that it takes very little time to get your screen looking great again. But if you leave it for a longer period, you’ll find that you’ll need to repeat the process a few times to get the same result.
