1.       Keep a soap dispensing dish brush in your shower with the Bucko Soap Scum and Grime Cleaner in it, and quickly scrub stubborn areas of your shower after you step out. You can use this brush to scrub before or after you shower so that daily cleaning is a part of your routine.

2.       Squeegee your shower walls and tub after use so that it’s always dry. Condensation combined with your soap and skin particles is what creates the nasty scum.

  1. Use liquid body wash instead of bar soap to shower. It’s the talc and fatty acids in bar soap that cause soap scum.

  1. Soften your water. Hard water has a higher concentration of minerals that bind to the sodium in soap – causing soap scum. You may notice that you struggle more with scum in areas where there’s harder water. Purchase a water softener, which will remove those minerals in your water that react with soap to make soap scum.



Or, you can purchase the Bucko Soap Scum and Grime Cleaner, which makes busting scum easy peasy. Simply spray, let it sit, wipe and it’s done!
