Shower rooms without calcium lime deposits! How to care for them in home ways.
A shower cabin, soiled with soapy water, or lime deposits, is the bane of anyone who cares for cleanliness at home. These deposits are burdensome to remove, but you do not have to use aggressive agents, full of chemistry, to enjoy a clean cabin!
A daily shower, often taken in a hurry, sometimes by several people on the same day and only a brief rinsing of the cabins causes that the calcium lime deposits and deposits of soap and water are deposited on the walls and bottom. These stains not only look unsightly, but are also difficult to remove. The basis for maintaining a clean, beautiful cabin is to remove them on a regular basis. But what if dirt of this type is already “full” and cleaning does not give much? You have to reach for the means that will dissolve it. However, before you go to the store and buy a chemical, test your home methods for removing scale and deposits from shower cabins!
Cleaning the shower cubicle – firstly regularity!
Rinsing the shower tray and the shower cubicle after the shower may not be enough – by washing, we splash soap, shampoo and other cosmetics that wash around. They often form thick spots that do not come off under the influence of fast and brief rinsing of the cabin and shower tray. They dry up, biting more and more into the walls of the cabin and in the tiles. The more regularly you clean the cabin, the less likely you will have to scrub it. Wash it at least once a week, using a sponge or cloth, with a mild liquid: for dishes, for rinsing fabrics or a little lemon juice. This will also prevent recurring, rapid formation of scale and sludge deposits.
Shower cabins are usually made of plastic or glass, which are assumed to be anti-steam and covered with a coating that impedes the accumulation of dirt. In practice, however, without regular wall cleaning, dirt will appear sooner or later. What to do when the shower cabin needs descaling? Test homemade methods to get rid of the calcium lime deposits: they are not only much cheaper to use than chemicals, but also as effective and, most importantly, safe for health! How to remove the calcium lime deposits from the cabin:
- Baking soda
- Citric acid
- Coca cola
Each of these ingredients can be found in your kitchen and although they are inconspicuous, the right mixes do wonders – and certainly dissolve the calcium lime deposits quickly and extremely effectively. The most popular method is to mix baking soda with water and apply the resulting mush to the places covered by the calcium lime deposits. Leave the mixture for 20 minutes, then clean the surfaces with a sponge or cloth and wash thoroughly under running water. It’s the best cleaning agent:
- removes even mold!
Citric acid in combination with baking soda and water creates an effervescent paste with which the calcium lime deposits and other settlements do not have the smallest chance! Add acid and soda to the spray bottle (or other bottle with an atomizer), add water and spray the cabin from top to bottom. Leave for a few minutes, scrub the walls and rinse with water. The shower enclosure will look like new!
Soak a cloth in a solution of water and vinegar (50/50 proportion) and apply to the place where most of the calcium lime deposits and sediments are. Leave for 2- 3 hours, remove the residue with a brush and then rinse with water – ready! The only disadvantage of this solution is the intense, not very pleasant smell of vinegar.
Do you drink coca-cola? It is a popular addition to meals, but also … the best descaler (and rust remover at the same time). Pour over the place full of calcium lime deposits and sediment with a small amount of cola. You will see the effect after a dozen or so minutes!
