        Bathroom Tips

        9.Remove Soap Scum

        Keep a Powerizer Complete squeeze bottle near the shower at all times. Apply the detergent right before your about to exit the shower. When the detergent has a little extra time to sit, scrubbing becomes easier. Also, this habit makes it necessary to clean the surfaces before taking your next shower.

        • First, Mix a Powerizer Heavy Duty Cleaning Solution. Pour one scoop into a 16 oz. bottle and fill the container with HOT water to quickly dissolve the detergent.
        • Apply the cleaning solution to the shower walls. Start in one corner, working from top to bottom, left to right. Be sure to empty the bottle.
        • Finally, sprinkle Powerizer Complete in the powder form onto the shower or tub floor.

        10. Wash slippers or slides while in the shower

        Now that most people are spending more time at home, it's essential not to wear shoes in the house. Instead, keep a pair of house shoes to be worn only inside. They are perfect for wearing socks in the winter too. These slides can get  funky and dusty and occasionally need to be cleaned. Handle that while taking a shower. It only takes a minute.

        • Step in the shower wearing your slides to get them wet.
        • Apply the Powerizer heavy duty cleaning solution to the upper and bottom of the slippers.
        • Rinse the detergent off with plain water.
        • Let them dry by placing them against the shower wall. 

        11. Pretreat workout clothes in the shower

        • Mix a concentrated pre-treat solution.
        • Remove the garment to inspect for prominent soiled areas.
        • Saturate the stains and vigorously rub the fibers together to loosen the stains.
        • Rinse the detergent from the bra.
        • Hang it up to dry over the shower head.
        Another option: If necessary, fill the tub or sink with just enough water to submerge the item and pour in 1/4 scoop to further soak the garment.

          12. Daily Bathroom Cleaning Habits 

          Implementing a daily cleaning routine will help keep your bathroom clean and odor-free. Make a Clean As You Go solution and wipe the tub, faucet, or other shower surfaces before you get out the shower.  After your morning or night bathroom routine, clean the counter, faucet, and sink with Powerizer Complete. 

          • Apply a Powerizer mixture to the surfaces.
          • Use a microfiber cloth to wipe the surface clean.
          • Rinse the cloth with plain water to remove detergent and dirt trapped in the fibers.
