What is the Difference? Showers and Stuff vs. Bathroom Power

Cleaning your shower is an essential part of maintaining a sparkling and clean bathroom. But with so many cleaning products available, how do you know which one is better suited for your shower? In this article, we'll break down the differences between Showers and Stuff and Bathroom Power, two popular cleaning solutions, to help you make an informed decision.

I have two types of showers that I was able to experiment on, dark tile shower and fiberglass tub/shower combos. Both of these solutions worked great for different reasons. I used the Ultimate Cleaning Combo, with both solutions and was very happy with all the tools included. The scrub pad and extendable pole are my new best friend. 

Showers and Stuff:

Showers and Stuff is a powerful cleaning solution designed to tackle hard water stains, rust, mold, mildew, and soap scum. Its potent blend of detergents and acids efficiently dissolves stubborn grime. The specially designed spray nozzle creates a thick layer of foam that clings to the shower walls. After a few minutes, a quick scrub and rinse with water are all that's needed to reveal a clean and refreshed shower.

During my testing, Showers and Stuff proved very effective in removing hard water and mineral stains with minimal scrubbing effort. It worked wonders on fiberglass showers, eliminating tough stains that traditional cleaners couldn't handle. However, it's worth noting that when used on dark tile showers, it left behind a residue that required additional wiping with a microfiber cloth. The product also has a strong chemical smell, I needed to open my windows and turn on the vent. 

Bathroom Power:

Bathroom Power is a thick foaming cleaner formulated to combat soiling, soap scum, and water stains. Unlike Showers n' Stuff, it is not associated with harsh fumes. This heavy-duty cleaner is suitable for various surfaces, including porcelain, ceramic, fiberglass, and stainless steel. Simply spray it directly onto the surface, work it in with a scrubbing  tool, let it dwell for a few minutes, and rinse off with cold water.

During testing, Bathroom Power impressed with its ability to remove hard water stains and soap scum from tile and fixtures. It exhibited a milder scent compared to Showers and Stuff, still requiring ventilation but without overwhelming odors. The product rinsed off easily and did not leave behind any residue on the dark tiles or grout. 

The Verdict:

Both Showers and Stuff and Bathroom Power have their merits. Showers and Stuff excels in fiberglass showers, effectively combating tough stains that traditional cleaners struggle to eliminate. However, it is best to avoid using it on dark tile showers due to the potential residue left behind. On the other hand, Bathroom Power is a versatile cleaner suitable for a range of surfaces, performing exceptionally well on tile tubs/showers and leaving no residue.

Ultimately, your choice between the two will depend on the type of shower you have and your cleaning preferences. Consider the specific needs of your shower and the desired outcome to determine which product suits you best. Whichever option you choose, with regular use and proper maintenance, your shower will continue to shine and sparkle. Which bathroom cleaner do you prefer?

This is more of a question than a comment. Are these cleaners safe for use on acrylic surfaces? My tub and shower surround are made of acrylic rather than fiberglass and the manufacturer recommended using Dawn dishwashing detergent, which I avoid because of the strong smell.
