The best cleaning products for your tub and shower
Cleaners from Bucko and brushes from OXO Good Grips take the pain out of scrubbing the tub, while sprays from Mold Armor and Method keep your shower clean and a squeegee from OXO Good Grips keeps everything streak-free.
For most of us, scrubbing the tub or the shower ranks only slightly above a visit to the dentist. If your shower or tub enclosure is looking a little worse for the wear due to the filmy buildup of grunge on the glass doors, tile walls, or tub itself, then it’s The Bucko Soap Scum & Grime Cleaner to the rescue.
Just spray this non-toxic, not-too-smelly, no-bleach-and-no-harsh-chemicals cleaner all over the offending surfaces. Go have a cup of coffee while you wait, and then rinse away the cleaner to reveal a shiny, bright tub. If your tub is really bad, though, you might need to lend a little elbow grease to the mix with the OXO Good Grips All-Purpose Scrub Brush.
Once mold and mildew have taken hold, you’re going to need to bust out the big guns. Open up the windows before you apply this mold remover because the smell is strong. However, you will be amazed at the power of Mold Armor Instant Mold & Mildew Stain Remover to remove even the most obstinate black stains.
Once your tub or shower is clean, keep things fresh between cleanings a daily spritz of Method Daily Shower Spray on the tile, glass, and tub spout. The floral scent is pleasant, and the plant-based, all-natural cleaner helps prevent soap scum and mildew buildup.
If you feel really inspired, give the shower walls and glass doors a quick once-over with the OXO Good Grips All-Purpose Squeegee to really keep your tub or shower enclosure looking good.
