Well, today I got a wild productive hair up my butt and decided to REALLY clean my bathroom. Not Clorox Wipes, but actual cleanser and a sponge and elbow grease. Now, please understand, I am not a "nasty" kind of person. My house is almost always cluttered, but I do not let it get grimy and nasty. Or at least I didn't THINK I did. I started with the double sinks and vanity. I removed everything off of the counter top, sprayed cleaner and wiped away the spilt toothpaste and make-up residue, etc. Then I cleaned the mirror, followed by the toilet and the tub -- no surprises, just gave them all a good, deep cleaning so that I could go on using the Clorox Wipes weekly for the next month or so to maintain it. Then I thought, "Hmmmm...when is the last time I cleaned that shower?" I couldn't remember. I am not sure I have ever really deep cleaned it in the more than 2 years that we have been here. I mean, I have sprayed it with Tilex and wiped it down, but never really gotten in there with a sponge and cleanser and scrubbed it. So I thought, in for a penny, in for a pound and dove into the task. We get in this shower every day to get clean. I never thought it was all that dirty. It is a small, glass shower seperate from the tub. Well imagine my shock (and general disgust) when I discovered that our shower is NOT (as I have always assumed) made of "frosted glass." The "frosted glass" was instead layers and layers of soap scum and hard water stains!! I am happy to report that our shower is now sparkly clean -- no "frosted glass" left!
