The Tilex products work well... especially the ones for shower soap scum. You just spray it on & leave it for a while.

Ok...I have yet to find something that really works as a permanent fix...but, when I combine scrubbing bubbles with the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, it's a miracle! My tub becomes shiny & white again! Although, it is something you have to keep up regularly, or you'll end up having to wipe it all away again. But yeah, the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser is a definite miracle worker!

This may tick you off - but my best advice is keep a sponge by the shower and every other day, as you are in there doing your thing, a 10 sec scrub will avoid any major cleaning later. It works.

Hello Melissa Mae. The product I use to wash my hubby & I's shower and toilette in our bathroom is "Oxy Clean" in powder.

What I do is putting together some Oxy Clean with some powder detergent, and mix them with hot water (if I don't mix them with hot water but cold one, the oxy clean becomes like a stone).

I wear rubber gloves as Oxy Clean can be very irritant, and then start scrubbing the shower with a washing pad and after that, for the toilette I use the typical toilette brush with also the combination of Oxy Clean & powder detergent.

This work really well for me, as the toilette, shower and sink become very clean ans shiny.

Other sustances I don't like them, as they are very smelly and even though they smell nice, they have vapors that are bad for the brain and can kill neurons in a long term (if you have a doubt, you can read the risks in the label of those nice smelly products).

Oxy Clean is odorless.

Ok, for now I say bye and God bless.

Gabriela. :)

Ah, I forgot to mention. As soon as you are done washing every thing with the combination of Oxyclean powder and powder detergent, you have to rinse it of with enough water, and you are going to see everything shiny and clean.

Ok, for now I say bye.

Have a nice day.

Mel, Use the Scrubbing Bubbles too! It works. Believe me, we have HORRIBLE hard water stuff and it works great (or CLR).
