        What's the shower wall made of?

        If it's ceramic wall tiles, I'd just scrape off most of it with a razor scraper and then use a methylene cloride based paint stripper to remove the stuff in the recessed grout lines. Methylene chloride won't harm either glazed ceramic wall tiles or cement based grout.

        The paint stripper will remove any film forming grout sealer you have on top of that grout tho.

        I just use a Magic Eraser, and then give a finishing wipe with vinegar and water. It's super easy.

        hello I always thought one style of cleaning can be implemented to various end of lease cleaning brisbane surfaces. Most I used vinegar to clean dirty spots is there any other good chemical with is natural and effective?

        I usually just use detergent liquid or powder soap and mix it with vinegar. Scrub and rinse with water.

        I scrub the tiles with baking soda and rinse it with 1 part vinegar mixed with water.
