Frequently Asked Questions

How do I remove soap scum from my shower or bathtub?

To remove soap scum from your shower or bathtub, start by wetting the surface with water. Then, apply a non-abrasive cleaner specifically designed for soap scum removal. Let the cleaner sit for a few minutes to penetrate the scum. With a scrub brush or sponge, scrub the surface in a circular motion, applying moderate pressure. Pay extra attention to areas with heavy buildup. Rinse the area thoroughly with water. If there are still remnants of soap scum, repeat the process. Another effective method is to use white vinegar. Fill a spray bottle with white vinegar and spray it directly onto the soap scum. Let it sit for about 15 minutes, then scrub the surface with a brush or sponge. Rinse with water. For prevention, consider wiping down the shower or bathtub after each use and using a squeegee to remove excess water. Regular cleaning and maintenance will help minimize soap scum buildup in the future.
