5 Steps To a Clean and Organized Shower Area

Keep your shower area looking stylish and neat with these handy hints


The shower area is probably one of the most used and one of the easiest to get dirty areas in the house. It may turn into a breeding ground for molds and mildew if it's not kept clean. Avoid problems and keep a bathroom that you'd always love to use with the help of these cleaning and organizing tips.

Keep these tips in mind:

Wipe shower doors and curtains regularly

Shower doors and curtains are prone to soap scum and dirt. Keep it clean using white vinegar and a damp cloth. If your shower area does not have doors, consider installing shower curtains instead. Doing this keeps your floors from getting wet while giving you privacy.

Keep bathing essentials in one space

Opt for a waterproof dispensers or organizers to keep all of your personal essentials in place. There's a lot of organizing tricks that you can do to create a spic-and-span bathroom. You may also personalize it with a couple of DIY projects

Install non-skid mats

Non-slip and drainage mats don't just help avoid accidents and wet, muddy floors! They can serve as instant accents, too! Choose mats with interesting designs to add a pop of color to your space.

Consider using shower splash guard

When we're in a hurry, we don't really notice water escaping the shower area. To prevent this from happening and accidental slips, you may want to pair a shower curtain with a splash guard. These guards can be made of plastic or glass and help prevent water from pooling on the floor. Visit the nearest hardware store to check out pieces that you can use.

Prepare a cleaning kit

Keep sponges, cleaners, and other supplies inside plastic containers or bins that you can store under the sink or in the cabinet (if you have one in the bathroom). Doing this will make it easier for you to clean the area as well as locate essentials when needed.
