How to Clean a Metal Shower Caddy


A metal shower caddy allows you to store your shampoo, conditioner, soap and other items in the shower without forcing you to bend over toward the ground or step out of the shower to use them. However, rust, fingerprints and other particles can appear on these caddies due to everyday use. While a dirty shower caddy may seem like nothing more than a minor inconvenience, the particles found on it can transfer onto and stain items resting in the caddy. Luckily, a homemade solution can be used to thoroughly remove these particles as well as odors found on the caddy.
