- Wipe the water, soap and shampoo residue from the walls with a rubber squeegee or chamois cloth after each shower to remove and prevent a slimy buildup.
- Mix 1 tbsp. of grease-fighting dishwashing detergent into a bucket of warm water. Submerge a scrub brush and scrub the shower walls beginning at the ceiling and working toward the shower floor. Rinse well with plain water and dry the surface well.
- Add equal amounts of chlorine bleach and water in a spray bottle. Spray slimy, mold areas. Let the bleach sit on the moldy surface for 10 to 15 minutes. Scrub the bleach-soaked walls with a nylon scrubbing sponge to remove the slime. Rinse the walls with plain water and dry them thoroughly with a chamois cloth or towel.
- Pour 2 cups of warm water in a spray bottle and add 1/4 cup of non-sudsing household ammonia. Spray down the slimy shower walls with the cleaner. Scrub the surface with a soft-bristled scrub brush. Rinse the walls to remove the ammonia residue. Dry the walls with a towel or chamois cloth.
- Apply a commercially available shower cleaner according to the manufacturer's directions. Scrub the walls with a soft-bristled scrub brush to remove the greasy buildup. Wash the cleaner off the walls with plain water and dry the walls thoroughly.
