Americans Stepping into Dirty Showers to Get ‘Clean’

(ARA) – Americans are cleaning themselves in less than ideal conditions according to the “American Shower Report,” a survey of more than 1,000 Americans conducted by Synovate. Results show almost one-third of the respondents admitted to cleaning the shower once a month or less – basically owning up to a dirty shower.

The majority of people surveyed ranked the bathroom as the least favorite room to clean, with 83 percent listing the shower as being harder to clean than the toilet.

Survey respondents report they notice a need to clean the shower, but don’t do so because it takes too much time and effort. Fifty-seven percent of people surveyed say they wait to clean the shower until there is visible dirt or soap scum build-up on the walls of the shower.

“People don’t have time to waste and certainly not on cleaning every nook and cranny of the shower,” said speed-cleaning extraordinaire Laura Dellutri, The Healthy Housekeeper and author of Speed Cleaning 101. “Look for one product that does it all like the new, first-of-its-kind Scrubbing Bubbles Automatic Shower Cleaner. It keeps the shower clean with one touch of a button, virtually eliminating the need to scrub the shower and tub.”

This new breakthrough cleaning system automatically sprays cleaner in the shower and tub to eliminate the build-up of soap scum and mold and mildew stains in days. The automatic shower cleaner has a power sprayer that spins 360 degrees and sprays cleaning solution over eight feet. It is designed to provide coverage for all four walls of the shower or tub with either doors or curtains for thorough cleaning.

Cleaning Secrets and Tips

With the grunt work of shower cleaning taken care of, Dellutri offers additional time-saving cleaning secrets to keep the rest of the house humming all year long:

* Clean from top to bottom – Whether you’re deep cleaning or just sprucing up a room, always tackle every cleaning job from the top to the bottom.

*No backtracking – just like a professional maid with a cart, have everything on or near you. Each time you forget something it can waste five minutes of your time.

*Spot check – spot clean high traffic areas on a weekly basis to keep stains to a minimum. Save deep cleaning for when it’s really needed.

*Time yourself – give yourself mini goals to hit; ten minute bathroom, ten minute dusting and the 18 minute kitchen cleaning. Breaking down the tasks room by room helps make cleaning more organized and efficient.
