We all know the feeling of waking up to a bright and sunny day, stepping into our shower only to be met with grout that’s lost its luster, tile that looks dingy and old, and a general feeling of “yuck.” But don’t despair! over time, even the best–kept showers can start to show their age. There are some easy things you can do to keep your shower looking new.
Here are four tips from the experts at Bath Planet of Birmingham:
1. Clean regularly
This one seems obvious, but it’s important to clean your shower regularly. Use a non-abrasive cleaner and scrub brush to remove soap scum, mildew, and dirt. Don’t forget to clean the shower door or curtain!
2. Protect your grout
Grout is porous and can absorb dirt, stains, and moisture. To keep it looking new, seal it once a year with a quality grout sealer. This will also make cleaning easier.
3. Replace worn-out caulk
Caulk can crack and peel over time, creating gaps that allow water to seep through. This can cause mold and mildew to grow, so it’s important to replace caulk when it starts to show signs of wear.
