We use our towels to wipe the walls and doors and them throw them in the laundry. After all, your clean, and the shower is clean, just wet. Keeps the walls nice. Jan

I agree. Baking soda is my standby for cleaning everything from burned on spills on the stove to shower walls. Works great. No smell. No caustic chemicals. Kind to the septic system.

I agree--and I also love Scrubbing Bubbles. They make one with a power sprayer so all you have to do is pull the trigger--no more pumping it and causing your arthritic hands to hurt! And you can refill it too.
I've also in the past used a squeegee to keep the shower clean. Mostly these days I take baths. :D

I learned this from my daughter's cleaning lady: Making sure that shower or tub is dry scrub with a dry SOS Pad, most of the scum will come off. Then wet shower & pad and srub off whatever residue is left. Works great on glass shower door, too, and no it doesn't leave scratches. :-D

P.S. This works great on tile, don't know what it would do to a fiberglass tub.

my sister showed me the easiest and cheapest way to keep the shower clean. Take 1/2 water and 1/2 alcohol. Spray and use magic eraser. Cuts right thru. I use once a week to keep doors clean. Good for mirrors and even the rest of the shower.

Magic eraser??? What's that? 1/2 water and 1/2 alcohol is essentially Windex, which works for removing light soap scum but doesn't hit the hard stuff at all without soaking for quite a bit.

I would do the squeegee but can't get the hubby to do it on a regular basis so I would have to chase him into the shower every time in our hard water area.
