We don't actually have a shower in my house so i am not really sure how we came to having sainsbury's daily shower cleaner in in the first place however it is really useful, i use it after i have cleaned the bathroom, just spray it over the clean bathroom suite and it makes everything really shiney - it is most amazing on bathroom tiles - i used to use window cleaner on the tiles to make them shine however this is soo much better. When i had been using bleach and othersurface cleaners in the bathroom before this it always seemed to dry with a dull look to it and like it had not been cleaned for weeks - this did not motivate me to clean!
You wash as normal and then when you are done you spray this onto the surface and kind of buff it with a dry cloth and it makes the surface sooo shiney that you can see your reflection - it lasts for a while too - where the surface would usually return to being dull i find that the bathroom still looks clean when i come to clean it the next week!
The bottle seems to have lasted forever so however it got there i am pleased and will definatly be replacing it when it runs out!
When we moved to our new house, I told everyone how nice it was to have a separate walk in shower rather than one over the bath. I didn't consider at the time how much of a pain it was going to be to clean the thing. In addition, my husband could actually live in the shower he spends so much time in it and thinks he is doing me a favour if he splashes water up the inside of the doors to wash the soap foam away. He has yet to understand that in fact this makes it worse as I then end up with limescaley water and soap dried onto the doors.
I have used the Mr Muscle shower spray before and was very pleased with the results. Once you have finished your shower, you spray the cubicle with it and it helps prevent the build up of limescale and soap marks. The Mr Muscle range is quite pricey however and you can quite easily get through a bottle if everyone in the house is spraying it on a daily basis.
I decided to give the Sainsburys version a try as it was nearly half the price of the Mr Muscle range, but I didn't really hold out a lot of hope for it, as often homebrand products just don't seem to have the same power as the big brands.
I was pleasantly surprised. The spray action on the bottle is actually better than the Mr Muscle version as it seems to come out as a finer spray. Also the spray itself doesn't smell quite so chemical as it's rival.
I would say that it does lack a small amount of power - it does keep most of the soap scum away, but there is always a small amount of residue. However I don't have to keep continually scrubbing the shower doors and for a fraction of the price of the rival brands, I'm happy to continue using it.
ok so I am having fun shooping in sainsbury, when I get the dreaded call form my flatmate. It was my day to clean the showers and stuff. Ergg how I hate teh scrubbing and washing and the cleaning. There just had to be an easier way. well as I was already in sainsbury, I set about on my mission to find and easy way of cleaning. I go in the cleaners isle and I find sainsburys daily shower cleaner for 60 something pence.
It claims to clean the shower surfaces without any hard work!!!I was truly amazed by it, picked it up and went back actually looking forwards to cleaning shower. To my disappointment however the shower surface needs to be clean for it to work. I tried it without cleaning up and that just made a mess. So I dismissed this in beginning,
As I had bough it any ways, I told every one to just spray after shower. After a few days I realised how amazing the product is, Clean up once and then keep using this after every shower, ur shower will never get dirty!!
Keeping shower cubicles clean can be really difficult. Our shower is used every single day and although it is cleaned daily no one would ever think it. Try as I might the shower always seems to get a build up of grease on the glass door and the mildew keeps creeping into the tile joints.
Sainsbury`s Daily Shower Cleanser comes in a 500ml pump action bottle and costs 76p, the bottle itself is clear plastic and the attachments and labels are light purple/mauve.
The pump action nozzle delivers a reasonably good even flow of cleaner with relative pressure on the lever.
This product is from Sainsbury`s basic everyday range, no frills whatsoever, just the basic goods offered at rock bottom price.
A host of weird and wonderfully named ingredients include:
Non-ionic surfactants, Methylchlororoisthiazolinone, perfume, Hexyl cinnimal, Butylphenyl Methylproprional and Benzyl Salicylate.
The cleaner should be stored out of the reach of children.
The cleaner is suitable to use on plastic and glass shower screens, tiles and grout, enamel shower trays and vinyl shower curtains.
The whole idea of this spray is that after using the shower you then gaily spray the shower, the tray ,the tiles and the shower curtain and then just toddle off and leave it to work, no rubbing, scrubbing or scouring is needed.
At 76p a bottle it was worth trying, although I wasn't going to hold my breath waiting for my shower to look like something from `Grand Designs`.
The clear bottle is a winning design, you can clearly see how much liquid you are using each time.
So showered and armed ready with my Sainsbury`s spray I let fly with the spray, aiming first at the tray, followed by a liberal spray around the plastic doors, over the tiles and grout, then for good measure a coating of spray where no man has boldly gone before. A slightly perfumed/chemical smell came forth, but not totally unpleasant at all.
This was where I saw a hiccup, the liberal spray had used around a quarter of the bottle, maybe I was too heavy handed, but then you can only spray so fast, can`t you?
So a good 20p`s worth of spray lighter in the space of a minute or so I went off to make out my shopping list, the shower would be gleaming by the time I went back (HAHA)
If you want the truth the whole truth and nothing but the truth...Not a thing had really changed, everything was just as I had left it, plus a few sinister looking streaks that were dribbling down the plastic shower doors.
I sighed and shook my head in disbelief and wondered what I had done wrong. Maybe I had interpreted the instructions incorrectly...Nope...I had done it the right way.
I have been using a CIF product which is effective but more expensive, and thought that I would have to swap back to using it again.
But not before I had experimented a bit further with this spray.
So I left the spray in the shower for the next few days and each morning I used as per instructions, the shower smelled fresh and after having a few good rinses as I was showering myself I began to see the benefits. The spray had in the period of a few days done a reasonably good cleaning job, but the instant results that I had anticipated just didn't happen.
The soap scum had started to dissolve and the shower tray looked clean.
So time and patience should have been given as instructions on the label.
The spray lasted me a week, but maybe I was a bit too generous.
So I came to a conclusion, I would alternate, a couple of times a week I would scrub my shower in the conventional way with my CIF product and on the remaining days I would spray the shower with the less expensive Sainsbury`s spray.
A good compromise that I was sure would work in my favour.
So just remember `Faint heart never won fair maiden`...I hope I have the right saying there!
I've got an irritating number of bathrooms to clean in my house, and there is one shower in particular which drives me mad because only my husband uses it unless we have guests. By which I mean I never use it. So I only go in there to clean it, which I hate. it makes me feel like a char lady.
It is a walk-in shower with 4 glass walls, one of which is a folding door, so gets soap scum and limescale build up really badly. My husband, being a man, lacks the "clean it as you go along" gene (OK I know I'll get loads of emails now decrying me as sexist but any man who would like to come and clean one of my bathrooms just to prove how well they can do it is most welcome!)
In the absence of a set of flunkies only too willing to clean for me (and because him indoors just doesn't notice when it gets dirty) I have found this little gem of a product in Sainsbury's.
I have used a Mister Muscle product before which does something similar and found it very effective if you spray it in the shower immediately after using it. It stops the limescale and scummy stuff drying in droplets and making your glass doors look all dirty.
The Mr Muscle one is fine, but this own brand version is just as good as far as I can see, and cheaper. It has a slightly sweet chemical smell to it, but it is not unpleasant and doesn't smell at all bleach-y or anything. It comes in a clear bottle with a trigger mechanism which can be locked (useful if you have small children). You just squeeze the trigger and spray it all round.
They advise on the bottle to rinse round the shower before using it if you used this product.
So you switch the shower on for a minute before you get in it to rinse it all off (which you can do when you have a shower with a folding door like we do - a bit harder if you have a solid door on the side of a bath that you can't get round to reach the taps.)
Then you have your shower.
Then when you've finished you get out of the shower and stand on the mat - reach into the shower with the spray - spray round a bit using the trigger mechanism and then shut the folding door. You can then put down the shower spray and get dried and dressed.
Does that sound hard to you?
What you get from this product for that 30 seconds of effort in the mornings is a shower that is much easier to clean on a weekly basis. If you use it every time you shower, before the water dries, then you don't need to scrub the glass walls to get the lime scale and watermarks off. It does really work.
It costs £2.50 or so and a bottle lasts about 2 months if you use it every day. It really works. It saves about 20 minutes shower cleaning time a week if you use it.
I think this product is marvellous. Would someone please tell my husband, because I can't persuade him to use this?
I must be honest I'm a bit lazy at cleaning the shower however I also do not like to see all those water spots that get left behind so when I saw this product in my local Sainsbury I thought I would give it a go.
The idea is that you use the spray after showering and all the water marks and other marks are removed without the need to wipe it down afterwards. It comes in a clear bottle with a trigger mechanism to release the spray. The nozzle can be turned in order to lock it and prevent accidental firing.
Well this product certainly works really well, it leaves the shower with a slightly antiseptic smell and I tend to rinse the shower before I next use it just in case there is any residue left around. You simply spray it onto the glass or plastic surfaces after use and all the water marks disappear, really simple to use. It does advise not to use too much spray as it can cause straeking but I must be getting it right as I have not had this problem.
For lazy people like me it is a great product, if used regularly it will also combat mildew and limescale nethier of which I have had a problem with. Certainly this one deserves five stars from me.
Given that I absolutely hate cleaning showers (all that glass to shine) it was inevitable that I would insist on this being used!
WHAT IS IT?
Indeed what is it? This is going to ensure that the one person in the house who hates showers does not have to irritated by those little water marks all over the glass.
The product claims to clean the shower surfaces without the need for scrubbing wiping and rinsing. Fantastic! It will also, if used regularly, prevent the build up of scum, mould, mildew and limescale
PRODUCT AND PACKAGING
The wonder product comes in a clear spray can with a trigger head spray and one of those nozzles you turn to close the spray when not in use. The shower spray itself is clear and smells faintly of cleaning products. It is definitely not a strong or unpleasant smell, but rather the kind of smell which tells you that something has been cleaned.
HOW DO I USE IT?
The shower area should be clean, and once this is achieved, turn the nozzle to "on" (obviously) and after every shower, simply spray the stuff on all the surfaces. Don't over spray because this can cause streaking. I found this when I was being over zealous, so for best results, just a very light spray will do. It does come out of the nozzle as a fine mist, so it's easy to get the correct amount. After this, stand and watch the product run down the shower area and miraculously leave no marks. It does suggest that the shower area is rinsed before using the shower area again, but my "lot" tend to forget to do this, and they have come to no harm.
It can be used on plastic, and glass screens, enamel trays, grout and vinyl curtains- the whole shower area really.
It comes with the usual warnings:
*keep it away from children
*don't breath in the product
* not for use on marble or wood
*avoid contact with skin and eyes
PRICE AND AVAILABILITY
This costs 62p for 500ml, and is available in Sainsbury shops, or online at www.sainsury.co.uk
Great stuff! It is incredibly simple to use. As soon as the product is applied, it drips down the surfaces, taking with it any potential marks. As long as the correct amount is used, there are no marks on the glass. I leave it close to the shower and even teenage sons, if reminded, are capable of using it, and achieving the desired effect.
It obviously doesn't take away the necessary "proper" cleaning of the showers but it certainly means that I am not looking with horror at those awful water marks left on the glass- small dry drips!
A product which is reasonably priced and which really does work
