Soap Scum removal

DH and I just bought our house and lets just say the shower is less than clean... Actually I'm not sure the last time it saw a good cleaner.  We ended up remodeling the bathroom but I still have to tackle the shower.

What's the BEST way to remove built up soap scum from the tile?  I've tried using scrubbing bubbles but that didn't work, the magic ereaser didn't work.  I know a little elbow greese but what would you spray on the tiles first?

    Soap Scum is awful and honestly... It may be worth hiring a cleaning company to get the bulk of it and then you can maintain it using Tilex Shower and cleaning ever so often.

  • I've used baking soda and laundry detergent mixed into a paste.  Also, comet works and a hard bristle brush great.  It sounds like you have a lot of build up to get through and like the PP says hiring a professional to take care of initial problem so that you can just maintain it once cleaned will save you a lot of fuss.

  • The best product I've found is Grease Lightening. I try not to use it except for tough jobs because it is pretty chemically. Lots of fumes. But, it has cut through everything (grease, soap scum), the easiest out of anything I've tried.
