If your shower or bath screen is beginning to look like it’s made from frosted glass it might be the sign that you need to do something about it.
Limescale, soapscum and water stains are notoriously difficult to get rid of even with a lot of scrubbing. The only way to make the job easier is to use a good quality limescale remover like Cilit Bang Power Cleaner or Mr Muscle Limescale remover that will get rid of the lime scale and any bathroom grime. Spray the screen generously with a foam or clear spray limescale remover and leave it to work for up to 5 minutes, then scrub it gently with a sponge and rinse thoroughly with water. This should leave your bathroom screen looking clean and shiny.
The secret to always having a clean shower screen though is regular maintenance. Every time you have a shower the water dries out, leaving hundreds of tiny water stains on the glass. In the UK there are a lot of areas that have hard water particularly prone to limescale build up.
So is there anything you can do to prevent this from happening? The solution is incredibly easy and cheap – a squeegee – a simple but effective scraping blade with a rubber edge that can be used for cleaning any glass or mirror surfaces. You can pick one up in any supermarket or large home wares shop for £1 – £2 – Ikea sell them for £0.80. Simply wipe the shower screen with the squeegee after every shower to clean the glass perfectly clean. It won’t take you more than a few seconds and will ultimately save you a lot of time and effort. They look sleek and will not be an eyesore in your bathroom and their slim shape fits perfectly behind the shower or bath tap, making it easy to keep them handy.
For a sparkling clean finish, spray some glass cleaner on your shower screen every few weeks and use the squeegee to get rid of the cleaning residue.
