bathroom with new gray shower tile and updated fixtures

Have you ever walked into a bathroom and noticed the grout stuck between the tiles is stained or discolored? And have you ever thought, “Man, how am I supposed to get that clean?” Well, it’s easier than you think. Cleaning shower tile doesn’t have to be so daunting—with some simple steps and the right materials, you can restore your tile and grout to look as good as new.

It helps that tiled showers are much easier to clean than some other shower options. With their lifespan, you’ll be able to enjoy the cleanliness for years to come after getting this simple routine down. Here is how you can keep your tiles looking fresh:

1. Use Vinegar for Hard Water

Just combine one part white vinegar with one part water in a spray bottle. Spray the solution onto your tiles and let it soak for several minutes before scrubbing. Then viola—this will help to break down the hard-water buildup on your tile and make it easier to clean off.

Take out that sponge or brush and start scrubbing! Experience the gratifying feeling of watching the dirt and grime disappear.

2. Use Grout Cleaner

Grout is especially prone to accumulating dirt and can easily make its way in between the tiles. To help break down the dirt and grime, use a specially designed grout cleaner or make your own by mixing one part of chlorine bleach with four parts of water. Simply apply the solution to your grout lines but be careful not to let it come into contact with any of your tile surfaces, as this could cause discoloration.

3. Use Bristle Brushes

For tougher stains on shower tile, use a stiff-bristled scrub brush to work out any stuck-on particles. You’ll have to strike the right balance between using enough pressure to get rid of the stain, but not so much that you damage or scratch your tile.

4. Rinse with Water

Finally, rinse off the cleaning solution and any dirt particles from your tiles using clean water. All the residue should come away with a quick rinse. You can either use the shower head or a mop to clean off the tiles to give them that sparkle.

So there you have it—it’s not so hard to keep your shower tile looking spotless after all. Tiled showers are known for lasting longer and being easier to clean than other types of showers, so make sure you’re taking care of them by cleaning the tiles regularly to prevent dirt buildup, so you’ll be able to enjoy your tiled shower for years to come.
