It may be different with Astonish

MissAdventure Mon 23-Jan-17 17:45:52

Oops! Probably should go and clean it off then! Thanks jalima blush

Don't leave it on too long, the Dettol one says between 2 and 20 minutes

Astonish should work the same I would think

I've sprayed some 'astonish' mould and mildew cleaner on it. Don't hold out much hope that it'll work
If not i'll get some dettol or viakal.

a steam cleaner is great for shower trays and tiles

I must very a very greasy family! grin well, that's something new I've learned today, thanks ladies
I shall try the viacal, I think.

Crafting my fat does not seem to be washing off my body, I am still the same size.

Dettol Mould and Mildew remover is good.

Our shower goes pink very quickly around the drain area and the plumber said it was caused by hair conditioner (the same in the slot of the washing machine where the fabric conditioner goes, that needs taking out and scrubbing quite often).

I hate to tell you what our plumber said but it is actually fat/grease being washed off the body and it turns pink around the drain area. I've used Vical on ours and got rid of it but you have to keep it clean to stop it coming back.

Could try Viakal on it.

Lakeland sell a mildew spray which cleans silicone sealant - I notice in my shower that often the silicone goes pinky before black spots appear and I use the spray then.

I'm staying at my daughter's bungalow, where she has a wet room with a shower cubicle. It has grainy type flooring, which is awful in the shower cubicle part
Any suggestions as to what might fetch it up a bit cleaner?
Its discoloured to an almost red hue
I've tried white vinegar, without much success
I presume its residue from shampoo, etc? (that, and not being cleaned often!) wink
