Soap Scum Removal

Soap scum removal can be tough. Remember those soap scum left in your tub or shower? How about the soap scum left in your sink? A lot of people usually ignore the soap scum in their bathroom simply because they don’t know how to get rid of it. Soap scum clings tightly and it can’t be removed easily with a simple rinse. Here are a few great tips that will help you get rid of soap scum today. Read on to learn about soap scum removal!

The easiest way to get rid of scum is to wipe down the scum off the tub, shower, or sink after using it. Make sure to wipe your shower tiles or tub once you’re done taking a bath. This tip will help you prevent soap scum build up in the future. Aside from that, it would be best to use a layer of furniture wax or polish. Do this only when the surface is entirely clean. Simply layer your shower, tub, or sink with the polish so soap scum won’t stick to it! Now if you already have soap scum buildup, it’s time to get some serious action. For some soap scum removal, prepare one part ammonia with two parts water. Put the mixture into a spray bottle and spray it onto the surface area with soap scum build up. Let it sit for a few minutes before wiping with a sponge and rinsing with water. After rinsing, wipe it clean.

Now, if your soap scum is tough, here’s a great tip. For serious soap scum removal, measure two cups of vinegar and warm it slightly in the microwave. Then, pour it in a spray bottle and spray directly onto the soap scum. Let sit for a few minutes then rinse and wipe clean. Lastly, another great tip to use is with the help of a dryer sheet. Instead of throwing away the used dryer sheets, use them to rub onto the walls to get rid of soap scum!
