Mr Muscle Shower Shine
Advantages: Quick and easy to use, leaves shower surfaces noticeably clean and fresh
Disadvantages: None for me
I'm a bit hit and miss when it comes to cleaning the downstairs shower; I'll often be in a rush and not get around to cleaning it straight away, but I like to make sure it gets a wipe over at least 2 times a week. This product it great because it works and because it's really easy to do so I have less of an excuse not to spare a few seconds to do it!
Mr Muscle is a very popular and well-known brand that's been going for a while now, and I trust their products to be at least reasonably effective and trustworthy. Their Shower Shine spray, a product of Johnson (again, reputable and a leader in home care products), comes in a clear bottle with a white/orange twist off spray mechanism at the top. On the front is a purple label with the Mr Muscle logo at the top and details of the product underneath tell us that using this means we'll 'never scrub again!', which is quite an appealing thought!
If you turn the bottle around you can see through the clear plastic and the clear liquid to see the instructions on the back of the front label. A separate label on the back would have been easier to read but I thought it was quite quirky doing it this way. This is designed for 'daily shower cleaning' and claims to prevent build up of soapy scum and limescale. It can be used to clean various shower surfaces including chrome, glass, tiles, plastics, fibreglass, enamel and acrylics.
I tend to use this shortly after having a shower if possible. To use, simply spray a mist of the liquid on to the wet surfaces you want to clean (you can include shower doors / curtains), then rinse or wipe it off. This isn't a product where you need to get a sponge and scrub away at it; in fact, it distinctly says 'don't scrub'. I find that using the shower to rinse areas I can reach with the shower head works well, then I just use a damp sponge to get the rest. Then just give the shower an overall rinse before using again to ensure all the product has gone.
The spray mechanism itself is very practical to use and you can turn the square plastic around the nozzle in to an on / off mechanism for an added bit of safety. I find it easy to get a light mist from the nozzle and the bottle is a decent enough size that it tends to last quite a while because, depending on how large the surfaces you're cleaning are, you don't tend to need too much each time. The liquid itself has a light scent but nothing major, just enough sometimes to catch a slight fragrance of 'clean' when you're done.
It notes that Shower Shine shouldn't be used on damaged surfaces, natural marble, brass, gold-plated fittings or finished wood. I've used this all around the downstairs shower cubicle and have found it really cuts the time it takes to clean it because it's quick to spray, quick to wipe off and then a final wash down finishes the job. It leaves the shower looking much cleaner and I don't worry so much about damp water going moldy in the corners, limescale or general scum from so much shampoo and shower gel. It leaves surfaces looking like they've just been cleaned which makes me happy, and with a slight scent of freshness, so I can't really fault the product.
All in all I would recommend this for general shower cleaning if you want a good job done but for it to be a quick and easy affair.
I tend to buy 500ml (£1.99, Sainsbury's) but it is also available as a 1L bottle (for around £3.19, Tesco)
Summary: A great all-rounder for shower cleaning that's effective yet easy to use
