Mum's tip to use a razor to SHAVE soap grime off her dirty shower screen goes viral & people hail it ‘genius’

A MUM who was fed up with the build up of soap scum on her shower used an unlikely tool to clean it – a razor. 

The mum-of-two explained that due to illness she’s not able to clean as much as she’d like, as repetitive motions leave her in “terrible pain”. 

While she praised her husband for doing the cooking and cleaning, she admitted scrubbing the bathroom has never really ‘been his thing’. 

As a result her shower screen had seen better days, and was covered in soap scum. 

After seeing someone else raving about using a razor to scrape grime off surfaces, she decided to give it a go. 

She was blown away with the results, and even though she admitted she’ll be in pain from all the cleaning couldn’t stop herself getting rid of all the build-up. 

The mum shared her tip to Facebook group Mums Who Clean, where more than 2,000 people liked her post, calling her tip ‘genius’.

She wrote: “I’ve been on this group for quite some time which my husband thinks is hilarious cause I’ve been quite unwell for over 4 years now and cleaning is really just about the last thing on my mind.

“One of my problems is that I am unable to do repetitive movements for too long without terrible pain. 

“Hubby is absolutely fabulous cooking, washing and vacuuming but the bathroom has never really been his thing.

“Needless to say our shower screen has not had a really good clean for quite sometime.

An hour later and I have scraped all the built up soap scum off

“The other day one of the other members posted about using a razor scraper for soap grime. 

“Just by chance I had bought one a few weeks ago to remove some glue from something else so this morning I thought I’d just give it a little try.

“OMG. An hour later and I have scraped all the built up soap scum off. I kept telling myself that I’d just do one more little bit but I couldn’t help myself – I just kept going. 

“I’m now flat out on the lounge with a cup of tea dreading how I’m going to feel tomorrow but I can’t wait to see what it’s like once I wipe it all down.”

After receiving so many positive comments the mum later posted an update, saying: “To be honest I was really hesitant to put the post up as I have seen some statements on other posts which probably would have been better kept in the postee’s mind.

Thank you all for your lovely comments and tips. I didn’t make it out of bed until way past lunchtime today but the upside of that was that my shower was still clean.

“We never really know what another person has to deal with in life, and sometimes life can be pretty s***!!! 

“I would love to have one of those homes where everything has a place and everything is in its place but that will never be my home. 

“Not because I wouldn’t love it. Just because it’s not reality. But my home is a home. 

“My children are clothed, fed and loved and their friends are always welcome (so long as they don’t mind the mess). 

“We love, laugh and sometimes cry but always try our hardest to treat others with respect and understanding.

“I’m proud of what my husband and I have achieved – 2 careers, 4 kids and a lifetime of love. My home is definitely not a show home, but it is HOME!”

People are desperate to try out the hack for themselves, with one person saying: "I’ve sent hubby to buy one today. So excited!”

Another wrote: “I need to try this.”

While this person advised: “Don’t use soap just use body wash and the build up won’t be so bad.”
