Which cleaner?

by Portia
(Brevard, NC)

I have a shower with travertine and tumble marble combination. I live in the mountains of western, NC and have a lot of mineral deposits in the water and even with a filter system it still gets on the tile.

Also I need a cleaner that deep cleans soap scum.

What would you recommend and is there a lot of fumes with your cleaners?

Also , I have glass doors that has mineral deposits.

What kind of tools do you recommend to use for cleaning?

Thank you.

Hi Portia,

I would use our soap scum remover and a razor blade. If you can buy the 3 inch razors with a handle it will make a life a lot easier for you.

Once you have the soap scum remover, soak the walls and floor of your shower with the cleaner and keep it wet for about ten minutes.

Then use the razor to scrape the walls and floor tiles being very careful not to scratch your marble and travertine.

This is the same method we use everyday with cleaning marble and travertine showers.

Keep changing out your razors as dull razors can scratch. You may have to repeat the process depending on your build up.

It's very tedious and not fun, but it's the only way we know of removing soap scum and mineral deposits on your natural stone.

If you have a lot of build-up, it may be much harder. I suggest you do this type of heavy cleaning more often so not to let it build up again.

Do the same for the shower glass. Remember new blades work best.

I hope this helps.
