One of the  parts of the bathroom  most affected by dirt and other problems is certainly the  shower cubicle  .

In fact, there are  limescale, dust and mildew stains here that  can be traced back to constant contact with water.

But did you know that you  only need one remedy to solve all these problems?  Oh well! Let’s see together what it is!

What will you discover?

Remove mold

Let’s start by   removing  the mold that we usually find in the corners of the shower cubicle, in the rails or on the silicone  and that  appears in the form of black spots.

As a remedy, we suggest using  vinegar,  an ingredient known for its cleansing, whitening and degreasing properties. Plus, it’s a  godsend against mold.  All you have to do is   pour  the vinegar onto a piece (or several) of microfiber and then place it along the rails and silicone.

Then let it  sit for at least an hour before scrubbing thoroughly with a toothbrush to remove all mold.  And that’s it!

For removing limescale deposits

Another problem that we often find in the shower cabin, in addition to mold, is the presence of  limestone  , which is formed by constant contact with water and  releases limescale deposits  , which usually accumulate on steel surfaces such as faucets and  appear as whitish spots.

Fortunately,  vinegar can also  help us in this case because it has polishing properties. We remind you that it is indeed possible  to make the stainless steel of the kitchen shine like a mirror!  To do this, you need to pour the vinegar into a spray bottle and spray it onto the faucet, shower pipe and shower head, then leave it to act for about 10 minutes  and  rub vigorously.

To more accurately remove limescale from the shower head and also unclog the clogged holes, you can try the bag trick, where you fill a plastic food bag with vinegar and   immerse the shower head inside  . Then tie the bag closed with a rubber band and let the shower head soak for about 30 minutes before rinsing it out  : no more limescale!

For polishing glass

However, limescale deposits also build up on glass and not only form  white water spots  , but also affect  their brilliance  and make them appear opaque  .

So you will be happy to know that vinegar can also help in this case to  remove water stains and make the glass shine like never before!  Therefore, add  equal amounts of vinegar and water to a spray bottle,  shake thoroughly to mix the ingredients, and spray this mixture  over the entire surface of the jars.

At this point,   rub  gently with a microfiber cloth in a circular motion and the water stains will just be a bad memory!

To make it even faster,  just use a squeegee!

Tiles and grout

However, mold, limescale and residues from the products used when showering also settle  on the shower tiles  and along the joints, making them  look black and dirty.  But don’t worry, because vinegar will also help you  clean the tiles thoroughly and  whiten the blackened joints  !

Simply put  the vinegar in a spray bottle   and   spray it onto these surfaces,  then scrub with a toothbrush and let it  sit for an hour before rinsing thoroughly.

shower tray

Finally, let’s see how to proceed with  cleaning the shower tray  , on which we often find yellow stains that are not at all nice to look at. Since  vinegar  has been used to whiten surfaces and laundry since our grandmothers  , why not use it in this case too?

Then put   half the vinegar and half the water   in a spray bottle and   spray the resulting mixture onto the shower tray  . Finally, let it work for a while before   rubbing it with a soft sponge and rinsing it off: no more yellow stains  on your shower tray!

Note:  We would advise you not to use vinegar on marble or natural stone tiles, otherwise they could corrode.


First, test the vinegar on all surfaces before using it. It should also be noted that it cannot be used on marble or natural stone.
