Shower cleaning tip: Scrub during your shower

I have to admit, I was pretty hesitant when I first read Flylady's suggestion to scrub the shower during my shower. In fact, I resisted for years. But scrubbing the shower/bath area was something I kept putting off, so I finally bought a long-handled brush at Target (it's actually a kitchen scrubber) and started scrubbing the shower while I'm in there anyway.

I just use some shampoo - it was free thanks to The Drugstore Game - and scrub a wall one day, the tub the next day, another wall the day after that. And it really works!

I wish I hadn't waited so long to start doing this, but better late than never!

    That sounds like me! I was so resistant to the idea, I just couldn't picture myself doing something so "against the rules"! LOL Perfectionism rears its ugly head. But now that it's a habit, I can't see doing it any other way. I have a CLEAN shower and it stays that way ^.^

    Does shampoo really clean the shower? I'm curious about the soap build up...

    @Ashley - Well said!

    @Rex - I haven't seen any soap build up, but we do squeegee after every shower. It's squeaky clean in there!

    I've been scubbing the shower whilst showing for a few years myself - it's good to know I'm not the only one who does that!

    I've been doing this for years, too! I'm glad I'm not the only one. I've never tried shampoo. I just spray a little cleaner before I step in, then scrub and rinse.

    I keep a little bowl of rolled up towels next to the shower too. Once or twice a week, I take one in the shower with me and wipe the soap ledge, the door track, and the top of the shower. It's amazing how 30 seconds can keep a shower clean!

    Thanks for the shampoo tip. I'm going to take a little scrub brush in and get the floors next time. :-)
