Hate cleaning your bathroom? Join the crowd!                    
The most often area to clean in a bathroom that has the build up or mould is the shower recess, glass screens and the bath tub.                    
Lets get one thing straight: dark stains on your tiles and screens are hard to clean & chances are they may keep coming back.                    
 Grout inbetween the bathroom tiles are the most common breeding ground for mold & mildew & because it is porous it tends to attract mould, mildew and products we use in the bathroom.                     
 Soap scum is also a culprit for the work we have to do in our bathrooms. Soap scum is the film left behind once we have finished showering or bathing and is a combination of minerals in the water & body oils combined with the bar soap many people use. Getting rid of soap scum needs to be tackled as soon as possible or it can become a real challenge.                    
Note: Keep in mind, soap scum and ingrained mould can be tough to clean, so if first try doesn't work, don't give up, keep using the method and you will get results.                    
Using enviroCare Earth Mould Remover & Sparkling Tile Cleaner wet the whole area needing to be cleaned, squirt MR & STC onto the area, let it sit for a few minutes and then with a brush, scourer or cloth scrub the whole area, rinse with clean water and wipe with a dry cloth or let air dry.                    
 For all hard to reach corners, try using a cotton bud, old toothbrush or even a cotton ball soaked in MR & STC, leave it in the corner several minutes and the muck will come right out.                    
The runners on the shower screen need attention too, so use the same method as the hard to reach areas and then flush with clean water to rinse all the residue away.                    
Shower curtains are notorious for collecting soap scum and mildew and spreading it to the tiles and grout. If yours is grungy, put it in the washing machine on hot wash with 30ml of enviroCare Laundry Powder & Presoak and                     
25ml of enviroCare Disinfectant to get it looking like new, hang on the line outside to completely dry before rehanging. Sun light is most efficient form for killing mould or mildew too. And it's free!                    
Try getting some more air flow and light into your bathroom if possible, this will reduce the humidity and create an environment that discourages mould & mildew. Keep everything as dry as possible, use really wet towels                    
to dry any really wet areas, take out wet towels or make sure if they are hung they are in an area that receives as much light and air as possible.                    
To prevent your sparkling clean bathroom or shower from getting soap scum build up the number 1 idea is to switch to enviroCare Body & Hair Cleanser or enviroCare Body Wash.
