Full Answer

  1. Remove dirt and debris

    Add mild soap to a bucket of clean water until suds begin to form. Use a sponge to clean the tile, grout and other surfaces, washing from the top of the shower downward to prevent the spread of dirty water film. Use a circular motion to thoroughly clean the tiles and grout. Rinse the shower walls with clean water to remove soapy residue. Hard-to-reach areas can be cleaned using a soft toothbrush.

  2. Remove water stains

    Create a cleaning solution composed of equal parts vinegar and water. Scrub the water stains away with a sponge using a circular motion. Rinse off the vinegar-and-water solution.

  3. Remove heavy stains

    Mix a batch of cleaner using two parts water and one part bleach. Scrub away heavy water stains or mildew on the tiles by using this cleaning solution and a sponge. Rinse the cleanser off the tile and grout to remove the residue.
