    I need a kick-butt solution...

    ...to cleaning a fiberglass shower! Anything you can think of will be appreciated. I've tried the commercial brands for soap scum, and all I end up with are seared lungs.

    Can anyone help before the holiday visitors arrive??

    The first thing I would do is spray on some vinegar and then use a soft scrub brush.

    I'm a vinegar-aholic, though.

    i second the vinegar. maybe use some baking soda as an abrasive (and for fun science experiment time, too)

    Would the Mr. Clean Magic Erasers work, or would they kill the surface?

    i've had good luck with scrubbing the bathtub and tiles with shampoo, and then rinsing it off the next day. it gets rid of the body oil scum that collects. it's worked pretty well so far, but i'm not sure if would solve your problem or not.

    I used kaboom on our shower doors when moving out of our apt and it did a good job with the soap scum.

    I have also had general good luck with the clorox wand thingy but it's less env friendly so I don't overuse.

    Limeaway works OKAY, but god it sears my lungs. I'll have to try the vinegar. My soap scum is pretty bad...nothing has seemed to work!

    I use stuff my mom bought me. It's concentrated so you have to mix it with water. It's a little hard on my lungs though, but it works GREAT. I'm not sure exactly what it's called, but it's the Don Aslett brand. You spray it on and let it sit, but not get dry, you have to kind of wipe it around for a while (only a couple minutes really). Then you scrub and rinse off.

    It works really good when it gets really bad...which it always does with me. I hate cleaning the shower, the tub's not bad, but it's so hard to do the walls. I have weak arms ;)
