Cleaning Sinks and Shower Pan

I have a Kodiak Ultra and would like to know what any of you use to clean and protect the sinks, shower pan, and toilet bowl; all plastic which seems to be what many units come with. Obviously don't want to use anything abrasive but I do have a couple of stubborn black marks on the shower floor that may require a little elbow grease to remove.

Thanks,
Dan

Sorry, for some reason the last part of the post didn't carry through the first time (obviously).

The last sentence should have been: "For these areas, what cleaners have some of you used?"

AWESOME, a concentrated cleaner found at most Dollar General stores or Family Dollar.


Mix a batch and spray it on the shower floor and let it sit for awhile and then just scrub the dirt away. I use it on my shower pan. I use it on a bathtub and use it on most anything that needs scum cleaned away. I also use it to cut the green stuff left by the tree pollen on my 3800.


My sinks and bathtub are enamel so you might want to try a test spot on your sink.

LOL... I thought "Awesome" was your response to my incomplete original post and your were stating how thrilled you were that I had found some black marks on our shower pan. Thanks for the information!

For sinks and showers

We have found an unusual cleaning method for sinks and shower. Dry the walls and fixtures immediately after use. It keeps everything clean and shinny. No chemicals are needed.

We keep one already used towel for drying the shower.

We started this method a couple of years ago when we renovated our home showers. The acrylic walls and floors were shinny new and still are.

We keep one already used towel for drying the shower.

Of course, you have to start with it clean.

We use Dawn to clean the shower, sinks & toilet, after that we spritz a little cheap white vinegar to keep the mildew and yuck at bay, works like a charm. ( I have a housecleaning business and do the same there). By the way if you are using bar soap it will make a bigger mess than liquid soap.

Me too, but I have no idea what she uses

Oh, is this an opening for body wash and shower scrunchies?

For tough stains use barkeepers friend. Non-abrasive scrubbing power
