Let’s face it: no one likes cleaning their shower, especially when there’s mould and soap scum build up. It’s a thankless job and the chemical sprays we use can often leave us feel light-headed and worse for wear.
So how can you clean your shower effectively with a chemical-free spray? We’ve found one that works every time and is safe for the whole family to use.
