Removing dirt and mold from the shower tray

The shower tray tends to accumulate dirt quite easily, given its frequent exposure to high concentrations of humidity. So we are going to explain some of the natural home remedies that can be used to remove that accumulated mold in the corners of your shower tray.

Method for cleaning the shower tray

The best way to clean your shower tray is by using baking soda. Start by pouring 4 glasses of water in to a bowl and stir in your baking soda until a smooth paste has formed. Now put the paste along the surface of the shower tray and let it sit for at least ten minutes. After enough time has passed, rinse the paste away. That’s all there is to it.

If you are going for a more precise treatment of your shower tray, just grab a sponge and work some of the same paste into the corners. Again, wait ten minutes for the stuff to do its job and rinse.

Alternatively, you can also try using these other products:

  • Vinegar, mixed with water (50/50)
  • Citric acid, 150 grams mixed with a liter of water
  • Lemon, mix a half glass of lemon juice with 4 tablespoons of baking soda

Remember to finish the job by wiping down the shower tray with a soft sponge.

Now let’s move on to getting rid of those black mold stains. We need:

  • 400ml of water
  • 2 tablespoons of baking soda
  • 2 tablespoons of hydrogen peroxide
  • 1 tablespoon granulated salt
  • Cotton balls

Pour the water into a saucepan, then add the salt and baking soda and bring to a boil. Next, add the hydrogen peroxide and turn off the heat. Allow the mixture to cool to a lukewarm temperature so you don’t burn yourself.

Now drop your cotton balls into the solution, make sure they are fully immersed. Next, without squeezing them, take the soaked cotton balls and place them wherever you find mold, forming a sort of barrier. After they sit for about an hour, remove the cotton balls and rinse the area.
