I was reading some of the threads and noticed that a few people are looking
for information about cleaning tubs and showers, so I thought I'd let you
know that you can make cleaning tubs and shower areas a lot easier by
installing a shower water filter. The filter will change the pH of the
water and remove minerals and compounds that leave spots and stains.
I've written an eBook that I'm distributing for free about water quality in
America. You can download it from my website
I'm sure that a shower filter can remove some of the minerals, but I
question the practicality and expense of this kind of device. If your
water is really hard, you may need an entire house water softener for
your hot water.
Here's my tips...
1) Wipe down or squeegee (or use an after-shower spray) after every
2) Clean showerheads regularly with CLR, Limeaway, KaBoom or similar
product. If your showerhead is really clogged up you can soak it
overnight in vinegar or simmer the (metal) showerhead in a pot with 3
parts water one part vinegar for 15 minutes.
3) A shower liner will protect your shower curtain. Plus, you can
machine-wash most plastic liners with bleach to kill mold/mildew. Do
not put plastics in your dryer.
Your book crashed my computer twice.
I've read that shower filters don't work very well because the flow
is high. Is that true?
I've read that the best shower filter for chlorine is an Asian
invention that uses ascorbic acid. One of these will remove 99% of
chlorine. A Crystal Quest removes only 19%. Is that true?
