Your Questions about Tilex® Daily Shower Cleaner

How do I get the best results with Tilex® Daily Shower Cleaner? Do I scrub?

No. After each shower simply mist Tilex® Daily Shower Cleaner on the walls, door, shower curtain and floor — then walk away. Do not rinse, wipe or scrub. For best results, apply Tilex® Daily Shower Cleaner immediately after showering, while the walls are warm and wet. The shower should drain and dry completely after application. Tilex® Daily Shower Cleaner is less effective if walls are allowed to dry before use.

How does Tilex® Daily Shower Cleaner work?

The two main ingredients in Tilex® Daily Shower Cleaner are a mild chelating agent and a solvent. These ingredients work in a two-step process with the warm water from your shower to keep your shower clean.

Step 1: The solvent penetrates and loosens greasy soils.
Step 2: The chelating agent (a versatile cleaner) breaks down dirt and soap scum. In combination with the warm water from your shower, it then rinses the soils off your shower surfaces.

Should I clean the shower before using Tilex® Daily Shower Cleaner?

It's best to start with a soil-free shower. That way, dirt, soap scum and bathroom soils won't have a chance to build up. If you start with a soiled shower, daily use of Tilex® Daily Shower Cleaner will soften and loosen existing deposits over time. Your shower will be clean in two to four weeks. Should some deposits remain after four weeks of regular use, they will be soft enough to simply wipe away.
