Getting Your Mission Viejo Home Ready to Sell? Remove Soap Scum!

Q. How do I clean the fiberglass shower wall in my Mission Viejo Home? I have a fiberglass shower wall and tub that have accumulated a lot of hard-water stains, soap scum and dirt. I have tried all kinds of products, and they just don’t clean it. Can you help? A. Fiberglass surfaces are rather easy to keep clean once you get them that way, but removing existing crud could take a lot of scrubbing. Don’t use abrasive cleaners; they can dull or scratch the surface. One product worth trying is Mr. Clean Magic Eraser Bath Cleaner. This is an oversize version of the regular Mr. Clean Eraser. You will probably need several to remove a lot of accumulated grime. Another product sometimes recommended is ordinary baking soda. Put a generous amount of baking soda on a soft, white cloth, moisten it and scrub. Some hard-water stains can be removed by scrubbing with full-strength white vinegar. For tough stains, make a paste of vinegar and baking soda and scrub with that.

I have stressed repeatedly how important it is that your Mission Viejo home is sparkling clean when you are ready to put it on the market and 1. have photos posted and 2. have real buyers come by to check out your house. This is a good hint for cleaning the fiberglass surfaces in your bathroom. Buyers today looking at choices of homes for sale in Orange County and other cities including Mission Viejo are immediately turned off by dirt and scum anywhere in your home, especially in the bathrooms. Take the time to give this a try if you have some areas that need attention. Remember, you live in your home differently on a day to day basis now that you are working to get it sold. Keeping your Mission Viejo home sparkling clean is a huge key to success as a home seller today!
And those magic erasers cleaning pads do work miracles!
