Keep Shower Curtain Closed
You may want to air out the shower right when you get out to release the steam, but when you're dried and ready to leave the bathroom, make sure the shower curtain is closed! Spread the curtain out completely for two reasons. First of all, it will look much nicer from the outside when you display your shower curtain design, and second, it will allow the inside of the shower curtain to dry completely, meaning no mold or mildew on the creases. It looks better on the outside and stays cleaner on the inside: win-win!
Shower, Spray, Repeat
One of the best ways to keep your shower clean and avoid actually scrubbing it is to spray it after every use! There are tons of different types of shower sprays on the market, and they all work to reduce grime and soapy build up on the shower walls. You can also make your own homemade shower cleaner with equal parts hydrogen peroxide and vinegar, plus water and castile soap. Just put it in a spray bottle to store in the shower, or find yourself an automatic shower cleaner and fill that with homemade shower spray!
There are plenty of different types of shower organizers on the market, and when it comes to a clean shower, all that matters is that you get one to organize your soaps, shampoos, bath salts, razors, and other toiletry items! You can even store bath time toddler toys in these hanging caddies to keep them all in one place. If you've got a scrubber or a loofah, make sure you have ways to hang them either from the shower caddy or from a suction cup hook on the wall. Minimize the number of different types of shampoos and soaps you keep in the shower to reduce clutter, and make sure metal containers like shaving cream and gel are in a caddy instead of resting on the side of the tub. Those rust rings might never go away completely!
Mesh Drain Catch
We all know it: hair is gross. Snaking the drain is nobody's favorite job, but it can actually be avoided pretty easily. Next time you're out at a home goods store, pick up a mesh shower drain that will fit your shower. Remove the standard drain fixture and replace with a shallow mesh drain catch that sits in the hole but is still removable. Now you can simply dump the mesh drain into the trashcan to empty out the hair and soap scum before it clogs the drain!
