Tiny part of your shower you’re probably forgetting to clean – and it’s grim

A professional cleaner has revealed the one part of your shower you’re probably neglecting.

TikTok user @thebigcleanco pointed out that at the bottom of most shower doors is a little plastic strip that can get full of gunk.

And now that you know that, you’ll be pleased to hear that it can actually be removed.

Kacie, from Melbourne, demonstrated how to easily remove the plastic strip in a video that has been viewed almost 300,000 times.

She said: “Here’s a little something you might be neglecting when you clean your shower.

“There is a plastic strip at the bottom [of your shower].”

If you’ve never removed it before, Kacie said you may need to apply some pressure.

“Once it’s off you can clean it. You can soak it, brush it, whatever,” she added.

However, if it’s “past cleaning” as Kacie says, you can buy a replacement.

Since being posted, the video has received more than 7,500 likes and almost 90 comments.

One person said: “I have been wondering for sooooo long how to clean it!! It’s been driving me mad. THANK YOU.”

Another wrote: “IT COMES OFF?!?! Life-changing. Thank you.”

“Didn’t even know it came off. Thank you.” said a third.

While a fourth joked: “I’m gonna pretend like I didn’t see this so I don’t have to do it.”

And someone else revealed that they use a jewellery brush to clean theirs – although you could definitely use a toothbrush instead.
