Just wondering.

Depends on who's asking...


Real answer: No, but about once a week I splatter it with chemicals and give it a half-decent clean.

Like dry it off after each use? No. The roommate I have now creates a lot of grime on the shower... so I've been really lazy and only scrub it once a month or so (I spray the shower and the shower curtain with bleach once a week or so to keep the mildew away).

I do before I take a bath. So maybe once a week tops. And sometimes not for a month or two if i'm just taking showers for a while. We should do it more often than that but yeah.

I ALWAYS squeegee and wipe down the chrome parts after showering. Sometimes I don't want to take a shower because I know I will have to clean it.... but my shower is super clean!

I wish my shower was super clean. But I am a lazy asparagus when it comes to the shower and I don't take baths, so I don't much care. And I am blind when I'm in the shower so even if it's dirty I can't see it and so I really don't care. It still gets cleaned once a week. But I never really feel like its super clean!

One day I will have a nice perfectly new clean tub to take baths in, one day....

We have a squeegee and sometimes I glance at it. I'm pretty sure my boyfriend wipes it down often as he likes to take baths on a near-daily basis. My showers are in and out, and I don't care.

i dont wipe the shower but i shake the shiitake out of the shower curtain and try to whap some of the water off that.
probably once a month or so i spray down the whole shower and scrub it and then i wipe it down.

i really really hate cleaning my bathroom which is strange because i dont mind cleaning all that miuch but bathroom cleaning i hate.

my shower curtain is gross, and Im too much of a hippy to throw it away because its dirty. Seems like a waste just because I am lazy. Can I put it in the washing machine with bleach or something?

also I clean my shower maybe once ever 4 months...the good news is with all the sand I trample into it from post surfing shower time, it sort of scrubs itself

Mine too until the part about getting cleaned once a week. I think ours get cleaned once a month. I hate cleaning the shower so it's usually him who gets irritated and does it.

Our inside shower curtain is one of those washable fabric ones. I've had that mother forever! But it is time to replace it.

We should probably wash our shower curtain... but it doesn't look dirty, so why bother.

At my parent's house I always wipe down. Been taught to do so when growing up.

We don't wipe it down and the shower in the kids' bthroom is not wiped down after use. Theirs is cleaned once a week. We clean ours when it looks like it needs cleaning, or before the baby or I take a bath. And I always wipe it down after I take a bath or give the baby a bath.

The kids' bathroom hasa shower curtain and I wash that in the washing machine and hang it to dry.

I have a claw foot tub with shower curtains all the way 'round so I can't really wipe down anything. I do rinse off the curtains after I'm done in the shower and make sure to fully extend them so they dry properly without gross mildew building up in the curtain folds. Also, I clean the tub with some biodegradable non-toxic hippy soap before I take a bath, which is usually just once a month.

If it is fabric then you can put it in the wash, bleach seems a little harsh, I would throw some white vinegar or apple cider vinegar in there. If its vinyl you can spray it down with vinegar or clove oil.

No I don't... but as someone above said and I never realized before... I'm completely blind in the shower with no glasses so I never notice it's dirty! This explains why even though I'm a super clean person overall I never feel concerned about the shower! Hm.

you have got to be kidding.

(i shared my shower with a good sized spider the other day. i share the house with two other able-bodied people, they can clean the goddamn shower, i can't be bothered. i usually shower at the gym anyway: as a result of this you can imagine what my shower looks like.)
