Shower Cleaning Isn’t Easy; Here’s How to Remove, Prevent Build-up

Ask The Experts

Showers and baths can be the toughest areas of the house to keep clean, particularly when there’s granite and other natural stone surfaces to maintain. Typical, everyday household cleaners can damage the stone surfaces and, what’s more, overspray from common cleaners for mirrors, glass and fixtures can have the same effect on stone.  That’s why we created Granite Gold Shower Cleaner® and Granite Gold All-Surface Cleaner®.

Here are some helpful tips in dealing with common challenges in showers and baths:

 For mold and mildew:

  • Mix one part laundry bleach with one part water and spray it onto the surface (the mixed solution won’t harm stone)

    Granite-Gold-Scrub-Sponge

    Safe-on-stone Granite Gold Scrub Sponge®

  • Scrub with a safe-on-stone scrub sponge or nylon brush (similar to the one we include with Granite Gold Grout Cleaner®)
  • Let sit for 15 minutes and rinse with water
  • Mold and mildew thrive off moisture, so be sure you have proper ventilation and dry stone and tile surfaces

 For water deposits and soap scum:

  • Soak the surface with a safe-on-stone shower cleaner and scrub for three to five minutes with a blue Scotch-Brite pad (other pads are too harsh on stone)
  • For more stubborn water deposits and soap scum, gently shave them off with a new single-edge razor blade
  • Use the shower cleaner with a safe-on-stone scrub sponge to remove build-up from glass doors and bath fixtures

Build a barrier:

  • Frequent sealing and polishing stone surfaces in baths and showers will not only help maintain shine and luster, but will also create a barrier to help prevent build-up (just don’t polish stone floors; they’ll become too slippery)
