Like most SAHM, I'm strapped for cash these days, and when it comes to buying things I like to know they work before I buy them.

I need a good tile cleaner for the shower. We are getting the nasty black stuff between the tiles in the shower. I've tried Kaboom, and bleach, but its still there. Uh! Any suggestions??

I do our tub with baking soda and a half  a lemon as the scrubber. It takes some elbow grease, I get a work out at the same time...but it comes out better than it did with commercial products.

Baking Soda, Vinegar, Lemon Juice, Tea Tree Oil. You can really clean your entire house with those 4 things for super cheap! Just google "natural cleaning recipes" and you'll be amazed! The best shower/tile cleaner is Baking soda, get the surface wet with water and sprinkle on baking soda to make a paste. Scrub it around with a rag or brush. For tough scum/stains, pour some vinegar on the paste and scrub some more. Works better than Comet and doesn't stink as bad. (Also, if you shop at Costco or Sams, you can get a huge 12lb bag of Baking soda for cheap) If it is mold, try tea tree oil, a natural antibacterial, mix a few drops in a spray bottle with vinegar and spray. Let it sit for a few minutes and try to scrub off. (Beware, do not use vinegar and any products with bleach in it together as it can cause a toxic gas.)

Lysol 4 in 1 cleaner with bleach is what I use for most of the bathroom. As well as Lysol or Clorox wipes. It sounds like you might need to replace the shower tiles though!

There is this great website that I go to www.vinegartips.com, there is so much you can do with white vinegar.  Check it out maybe there is something there that can help you!

It's possible that it may have stained the grout at this point.  If you're cleaning with those products and the black color is still there it might be squeaky clean, just stained.  Either one of those should have done the trick.



Hope you find something that works from the suggestions given.  The baking soda or comet suggestion might work if you let it sit.  If not, it's probably stained.

wow i din't thin anyone had ever heard of shaklee!!! my aunt sold it for years and we were the only ones that really knew about it in our town. the basic h works for EVERYTHING! not sure about mold though. i just buy the generic all purpose bleach cleaners for my kitchen and bath and found they work just as well as the pricy stuff. i've found that one way to prevent the mold is to run your exhaust fan in the bathroom or crack a window if you don't have one while your in the shower or immediatly after. this will draw out the excess moistere.

Vinegar--for glass, running it in dishwasher and/or washer to make them fresher, cleaning mildew

Baking soda--in carpet, open in freezer and fridge

Colorox anywhere spray--I use ALOT!

I also have used the shaklee products from a friend who bought the starter kit for like $170 (and didn't really like it so passed it to me). I think I might google around or get a library book or two on cleaning naturally before I spent that chunk of change on from what I experienced wasn't much better that Greenworks, Method, or non-brand named "green" stuff I can get at my local box store.

Someone told me if you put comet in a paste between the tiles for 20 minutes and then rinse, however I used baking soda instead and was successful (our grout wasn't too bad). Hope this helps :)

I shop with a company online that has phenominal cleaning products. They specialize in safer products for your home and family. I would love to introduce you to the company and help you set up an online acct so that you can try them. Specifically the Tub & Tile is really great for getting stuff off shower tiles and sinks and such. But I love their entire line of cleaning products. Let me know if I can help you further :) Feel free to look at www.saferforyouhome.com for more specific information on the products. If you decide this is something you'd like to try, all customers get credit for refering others to them, so would you mind going through me? I would definitely appreciate that :) I hope this helps!

Haha. I was about to post about Shaklee and then I realized Shelagh already had. These products are amazing and really do multitask very efficiently.

Have you tried Shaklee cleaning products? They are concentrated so they last forever and you get a lot for your buck. They are also natural so you don't have worry about them harming your family.



Try the Scour Off in your shower, it works great!!! www.shaklee.net/stayoung
