    19 Of The Best Shower Cleaners To Give Your Bathroom A Much Needed Deep Clean

    Say "Smell ya later" to all those grout, mildew, mold, and stains that have long overstayed their welcome.

    1. A bottle of RMR-86 spray for that mold and mildew that just won't quit. Not only will it remove that gross science experiment you've got going on in the corner of your shower, but it'll also remove all the stains of yesteryear.

    2. A Wet & Forget shower cleaner that requires NO scrubbing *gasp*. Don't believe us? Well, over 16,000 reviewers swear by it, claiming all you need to do is spray the desired areas, let it sit for a day, then watch as it rinses away all the dirt and grime.

    Get it from Amazon for $20.98 (available in two scents).

    3. A foaming shower cleaner by Kaboom which sprays on blue then ~magically~ turns white once it's ready to be wiped away — no guessing on when to rinse required.

    4. A Mr. Clean Magic Eraser that requires only water to activate its grime, stain, grout, and soap scum conquering solution — so you can say goodbye to the hoards of cleaning sprays taking up space in your cabinet.

    5. A bottle of The Pink Stuff which is the definition of clingy, but in the best possible way since the solution actually clings to surfaces to penetrate and remove most annoying bathroom troubles — including limescale.

    Promising review: "I love every single Pink Stuff cleaning product I have owned. This stuff is truly amazing for cleaning the bathroom! Minimal effort! Spray and leave it for a few minutes and you’re done! It makes your shower and toilet sparkle!

    6. A chemical-free shower cleaner made without any toxins for a safe and ~natural~ cleaning solution that won't have you turning on the closest fan and opening every window to get rid of all those fumes.

    Promising review: "I bought this cleaner for the aesthetic — I love the pink! Once I used it I was blown away! It completely removed built-up residue on my quartz countertops. I also tried it on my bathroom drain tub and I reached out to their social media platforms on how to best handle this. I got an immediate/helpful response to let it sit for 20-30 minutes and I did as advised. Then, after some scrubbing, the water stains were GONE! Beautiful green product that works and wonderful customer service." —Patricia

    7. A Scrubbing Bubbles shower cleaner safe enough to use on various surfaces, such as tile and laminate, so you don't have to keep switching between cleaning solutions to wipe the walls, faucets, and flooring of your shower.

    Promising review: "I don’t typically write reviews, but I feel this product is VERY worthy. My grout lines were stained with red mud before we moved into our brand new house. I tried almost every grout cleaner I could find, and, unfortunately, never had luck even lightening the stains. Grout-EEZ worked beautifully and completely cleaned the lines to make them look like new with very little work and minimal time compared to the things I’ve tried in the past. I was skeptical so I only bought one bottle and the brush, but I will definitely keep this in my house at all times now." —Bhans89

    Get it from Amazon for $21.95+ (available in two sizes).

    9. A universal cleaner using citric acid, lemongrass leaf oil, and corn-derived alcohol to get rid of pesky bacteria while leaving behind a scent so ~intoxicating~ some reviewers even spray it around the house.

    Also uses salt and coconut-derived ingredients to cut through grease.

    Promising review: "I tried this cleaner and I must say I am impressed. It gets the ring out of a tub. I like the smell so much that I spray it around the house. I'm hoping that an air freshener will one day be available. At least it leaves the bathroom smelling great when you clean with this product." —Yvonee J.

    Get it from Safely for $7.

    10. An Oxo squeegee for removing any water streaks and giving your glass shower door a crystal clear finish with just a simple glide of your hand! 

    Promising review: "This is PERFECT! Me and my roomie use it right after the shower, and it keeps our shower pretty immaculate. All the shampoo, conditioner, soap, hair, and water spots are swiped clean from the glass shower doors to be washed away on the bottom of the shower. I hate walking into my bathroom and seeing a dirty, cloudy shower door. This does the job beautifully. The suction on this is AWESOME! I've had it for a month and it hasn't separated from the shower wall, and we use it every day. The actual blade is easy to clean, I just spray some bleach-free cleaner on a paper towel to wipe off any grime. I also like to use this squeegee to get the condensation off the mirror. I typically stay in the bathroom for 15 minutes after I shower to do my skincare routine, and I like to be able to see my reflection. This wipes that right off without leaving streaks and also leaves the mirrors immaculate." —MsDbone

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    11. A 2-in-1 tub brush to take away the hassle of getting those hard to reach spots (especially if you're on the ~shorter~ side). It comes with an adjustable handle and triangle-shaped sponge dirt won't be able to hide from.
