Wet and Forget Shower: The Intro to My 8 Week Experiment

Wet and Forget Shower

Does anyone else get tired of cleaning the shower only to see soap scum or mold & mildew return over and over again?

Oh my word, I can’t take it anymore!!! And since I’m super busy I’m always on the lookout for something new that will save me time and aggravation.

After speaking with other friends who have similar bathroom issues I decided to try Wet and Forget Shower. I’ve had an awesome experience with the original Wet and Forget that you use on patios and exterior siding. And this prompted me to try their shower product.

Plus, the company actually asked me to use it since I’ve been a vocal advocate. I bought Wet and Forget Shower with my own money. One of my policies is to have no freebies for reviews because I want to be unbiased with my thoughts.

The review will take 8 weeks. I stopped cleaning my shower about a week before starting Wet and Forget Shower. This admittedly grossed me out a little bit and I decided I couldn’t stop using a squeegee on the floor tile (sorry, I just can’t bring myself to stop this).

At the advice of my friend Jeremy I’m doing a comparison whereby the left side of the wall or shower door is untreated and the right side gets Wet and Forget Shower. I’m only using Wet and Forget Shower once a week per the directions, and will elaborate on how I used it in a later post.

Here’s a short video showing you my shower and no, I’m not naked in it!!!!

Right now I’m at Week 2 and have noticed a difference already. But I wanna see if the results are alarming or just ho hum (meaning it’s not worth your time or money to buy this product). My hunch is that you’ll be pleased with what I’m experiencing.

I say this because I’m doing a similar experiment with my patio using the outdoor Wet and Forget. And already my wife and I can see a big difference. You’ll have to wait until the spring to see the results of this trial.

Mold or soap scum in showers is not only vulgar, it’s downright embarrassing (especially if you have house guests). Stay tuned into Home Repair Tutor to see how this experiment turns out, I guarantee you’ll learn something new :)

Make it a great day!

    I’m very interested to see the results on this one! I’ve been wondering if spraying down my shower every day with vinegar would work, but don’t particularly like my bathroom smelling like pickles. Of course, there are worse things…. :)

    • Jeff Patterson December 27, 2012, 10:39 PM

      You always make me laugh Sheila. I agree, pickles smell good only in jars and not in showers, LOL.

      I’ve been very impressed with the scent of Wet and Forget Shower. It has a slight vanilla fragrance and is not overpowering. So anyone with allergies could use this without a bad reaction.

      My wife has terrible allergies and asthma (she cannot walk through the perfume department of Macy’s without having to use her albuterol). If she can tolerate Wet and Forget Shower then others probably can, too.

    Can you please see if it will work on a fiberglass tub? Jacuzzi. I don’t know how to get it clean. Thanks if you can help.

    • Jeff Patterson January 2, 2013, 5:53 AM

      Hi Mary, thanks for your question. I went to the Wet and Forget Shower website and they do say you can use it on fiberglass surfaces. I’m not sure whether you can spray Wet and Forget into the jets, though.

      Here’s the link that explains where to use the product http://wetandforget.com/product_wet_and_forget_shower.html

      Let me know if this answers your question :)

      • Mary January 2, 2013, 9:45 AM

        Thanks. It does say fiberglass and with the asterisk to always check first in an inconspicuous spot. I’ll be watching your results. I really enjoy your blog

        • Jeff Patterson January 2, 2013, 12:48 PM

          Thank you Mary, I really enjoy meeting and talking with other people who enjoy their house.

          A home is the most basic thing we all need to survive. If I can help you and others then it makes my day :)

  • Sam January 2, 2013, 12:30 PM

    I think the comparison method is a great idea, it’s going to give you definite results! Good luck! I can’t wait to see what comes of the experiment!

    • Jeff Patterson January 2, 2013, 12:50 PM

      Me too Sam!

      I think the results will be good. It might be difficult to cope with half of my shower being disgusting, though.

      Lol.

    I am always looking for something for my bathroom..I saw the product for outside use this morning on TV..I never heard of it before. SO, I started thinking “I wonder if I can use this in my Bathroom?”, then when I started researching it, I found the Wet & Forget Shower. Sounds awsome, but so has every other miracle product out there, like that “Shower Clean” spray that you would attach to your shower head and it would spray down your shower 1x a day…NEVER WORKED!!!! So, I am very excited to see how it works for you. I also see that no one seems to sell this product for the shower. I found it on-line, but that is it. I live in N.E. PA – do you know of any stores that sell it? It seems Home Depot & Walmart carry it on-line, but only the outside product. Well, I hope this is as good a miracle product as the outside product appears to be.

    • Jeff Patterson January 19, 2013, 7:14 AM

      Thanks for the question Kjell.

      You’re right in that the original Wet N Forget and easy to find at home stores like Lowe’s, Walmart, Home Depot, Ace Hardware.

      I did on the other hand have a problem finding Wet N Forget Shower, most likely because it’s a new product for right now.

      Using their online store is always an option (that’s how I bought mine). We’ve had such great success with the outdoor version that I decided to give the Shower one a try.
      Admittedly, you must have some patience when using Wet N Forget. It won’t work immediately but exerts it’s cleaning power over time.

      Let me know if you decide to use it and what kind of results you get over an extended period of time (say 3 months) :)

      And be sure to take before and after pics. You can always send them to me at jeff@homerepairtutor.com because I’ll share them right here on HRT.

    Just wanted to chime in that you can find Wet & Forget in retail stores using our store locator here, http://www.wetandforget.com/store_locator_wet_and_forget.html If you’re specifically looking for Shower, be sure to hit the button next to the product to ensure that stores carrying Shower pop up. Thanks!

    • Jeff Patterson January 22, 2013, 12:37 PM

      Thanks Steve.

      Loving the cleanliness of my shower (so is my wife).

      • Steve January 22, 2013, 3:54 PM

        That’s great! So is it safe to say that your wife approves of the scent?

        • Jeff Patterson January 22, 2013, 3:59 PM

          Oh yah, no problems with the scent.

          And she is super allergic to all perfumes and can’t walk through Macy’s cosmetics department or any place that has strong aromas.

          You all did a fantastic job on that end. So anyone with allergies could definitely use Wet N Forget Shower.

          Just today, on a separate note, I was thinking you should make a product for cars. People would certainly like a natural way to keep their wheels clean.

          I’m not using it for this purpose but have been assembling a list of uses for around the house :)

    I purchased Wet and Forget Shower 2 weeks ago. I have used it 3 times and while the shower is admittedly much cleaner without all of the elbow grease normally required, i just noticed that the caulk in my shower surround had all come loose. I was able to grab it and peel it away. I spent last night cleaning out the joints where the tile meets the surround and recaulking. I don’t think I can use the product anymore.

    • Jeff Patterson February 13, 2013, 5:20 AM

      Hi Mike,

      I’m sorry to hear you had a bad experience. I sent a copy of your comment onto Wet and Forget to see if this has ever happened before.

      Did you recently caulk your tub in the last year or so? I had a similar issue at one of our rental homes whereby it came out just like you described. We weren’t using Wet & Forget at the time on this tub but the one thing I remembered is that it wasn’t silicone caulk that was used. After using removing all the old stuff I used GE silicone caulk and haven’t had any issues.

      In regard to my own experience, I’ve been using Wet & Forget Shower for about 10 weeks and haven’t had any issues with our caulk. But again, it’s silicone based.

      Let me know your thoughts.

    • steve February 14, 2013, 11:05 AM

      Hi Mike,

      It is highly unlikely that Wet & Forget Shower has affected your caulk. Wet & Forget Shower is a new product to the United States but has been used in other countries for a number of years without any problems similar to what you’ve described. Hopefully, you can re-caulk and continue to use Wet & Forget Shower.

  • Kathryn Stillman January 3, 2014, 6:58 PM

    Hi Jeff
    I just watched your video about the Wet and Forget Shower Cleaner. Im having a heck of a time removing mold from the tile cracks. Where it’s caulked is where the main issue is and of course the corners of the bathtub. I’m going out tomorrow and purchase a bottle of it. Thanks for this blog. I’m sure I will be using it quite a lot. Living in Orlando we get such high humidity.
    Have a Blessed day

    • Jeff Patterson January 4, 2014, 7:54 AM

      Thanks Kathryn. I think you’ll like Wet and Forget Shower. It takes a few weeks to start working because it’s a surfactant based product. So be patient.

      Yes, those corners are tough to keep clean. And with you humidity in Florida you’ve got an extra hard job.
