    Cleaning a shower

    Hi Guys,

    I decided to give my DA a shot at cleaning the soap scum in my shower. The scum with the hard water makes for a backbreaking nightmare of a job. Magic erasers just crumble, it gets that bad.

    So I am wondering what attachment would be best. Do you think a brush, like an upholstery brush would be good, or would something like a wool pad be better?

    Thanks!

    One problem you`ll possibly run into is pads getting clogged pretty quickly.

    Once a year I clean mine with comet- then DA with 5-1/2 flat LC white pad and FG400. Rinse- iso wipe and apply a coat of CanCoat. Seems to work very well for me.
    I as well have hard water from my well

    My preference is chemicals. The Zep or Home Depot soap scum cleaners work great for me on tile and grout.

    Scrub brushes that attach to your drill. Use cleaner of your choice

    I`m gonna try some Griot`s white glass pads with different glass polishes on my Pixie in a week.

    Gee, sounds like people let `em get, uhm...in need of serious cleaning. Why not just wipe them down every use and then do a quickie during the weekly housekeeping? Only takes a few minutes...

    Even with our softened water I`d hate to let such stuff go for long.

    I keep an old California Water Blade in my shower and squeegee after each use. I also use only body wash--means no soap scum build up. Using this leads to minimum shower clean ups for me.
    Treat it like it`s the only one in the world.

    Same here! Then I follow up with a WWMF (since I no longer use those when Detailing).

    Heh heh, coulda/woulda/shoulda had a *SHOWER* unit instead of a tub w/shower As if I`d ever take the time for a bath instead...what *WAS* I thinking?!? The shower stalls we have in the other baths are *SO* quick/easy to do by comparison...
