Cleaning the Shower Floor

The base of my shower looks really bad. It's supposed to be white but has a lot of ground in dirt discoloring it. Nothing I have tried has worked.

Try a mixture of 1 part bleach and 2 parts water. Use a stiff brush to apply and let it sit 15 minutes and then scrub!

I tried that and didn't seem to to anything. Also, used baking powder and vinegar.

Here in the US we have a product called CLR. I tried it and it worked even better than bleach. And it hasn't harmed the surface. We have a fiberglass shower. Good Luck.

If a regular abrasive cleanser such as Ajax or Comet won't clean it, or a liquid cleaner such as Mr Clean (or whatever your standard brands would be in the UK), I would also try a product like the CLR recommended. It is an acid product for dissolving limescale and hard water deposits, which could be what you have in the bottom of the shower.

I would not use bleach at this point as bleach is for disinfecting and removing discoloration. What you have is likely built up soap scum and dirt and hard water deposit.

Try the Magic Eraser. We have a motor home with a "plastic" shower and they work great.

Try making a paste out of crushed denture cleaner tablets and water. Smear it on the shower floor and leave it over night, covering it with plastic wrap to keep it wet. Scrub it off in the morning and see if that works. I know it works to take really bad stains out of toilet bowls.

I heard on YouTube to use toilet bowl cleaner on walls so it would prob work on floors. Put on floors and scrub

I had the same problem! Tried everything and was considering having the existing shower insert removed and I was pondering about what to replace it with for ease of cleaning. I saw here, on ThriftyFun about using Fume free

Easy Off Oven Cleaner(blue cap) for cleaning showers/tubs for heavy soap scum, dirt, and hard mineral build up. I applied, let set, and used bargain brand "magic erasers" to scrub. My DH was nearly blinded by the "new" beauty of our existing shower inset. I do hope that you have access to the blue topped Fume Free Easy Off Oven Cleaner in the UK. Best Wishes!
