Spooky Shower Stains

Identifying Bathroom Grime

The Reasons Your Shower Has Mold

It’s the spookiest season of all. While some people are getting their scares in through movies and haunted houses, you might have something even scarier lurking in your home: shower grime. Learn about the different spooky shower stains to help you identify which is plaguing your bathroom.

Spooky Shower Stains

Hard Water

Hard water has higher than normal mineral content, like calcium, limestone, and hard water deposits. This type of shower grime appears chalky and white when evaporated, leaving your shower looking dingy. It can show up on glass shower doors, tiles, and faucets.


Mold is a type of fungi that develops within 24-48 hours of exposure. It develops where water doesn’t have the opportunity to dry. Mold is dark, often black or green, and is frequently found near corners, grout, and caulking.


Mildew is a specific style of mold, specifically mold in the early stages. You can tell mildew apart from mold because of its gray or white color. Mildew smells musky and can be found in showers and other humid areas of your home.

Soap Scum

It appears when fatty acids, talc, and other ingredients found in soaps and shampoo mix with your hard water. Soap scum is often white and filmy. It forms a layer of scaliness over the surfaces in your shower.
