North Olmsted, Ohio... It's where some of your best ideas are born, and where you unwind -- or get ready -- for the day. And although your current shower might be fine, why not make it fabulous? Here are the latest products to create a shower experience so wonderful it sings.

Update Your Showerhead...and Your Style

According to Moen's Consumer & Market Insights group, the average shower last about 13 minutes. So many people suffer through a sub-par experience every day simply because their current showerhead is still in working order. Just because it ain't broke, doesn't mean you shouldn't fix it! Installing a new, invigorating showerhead is simple, and this project will leave a lasting impact on your daily routine. Moen has a number of showerhead options, making it easy to find a new model that works for you.

Keeping it Clean

Cleaning the shower is one of the most daunting tasks on your home's to-do list, but it doesn't have to be. Instead of a time-intensive scrub every week, daily maintenance is the secret to a sparkling shower. Adding these simple steps to your routine -- or alternating days with a significant other or roommate -- will keep your space looking pristine.

  1. Keep a dispensing dishwand in the shower filled with equal parts vinegar and dishwashing detergent. Quickly wipe down the walls and enclosure (whether it's doors or a curtain) while you're still in the shower. Plus, it's easier to remember to clean when the tools are right there.
  2. If you have shower doors, buy an inexpensive squeegee and use it every time you shower. The few seconds it takes you will dramatically reduce the amount of soap scum build-up on the glass, keeping it cleaner longer.
  3. Always wipe down the countertop and mirror with an all-purpose wipe when you're finished in the bathroom. You'll not only remove any water spots or residue, you'll also whisk away germs or bacteria, which helps to keep everyone in your household healthier.

Creating a bathroom sanctuary doesn't have to be a challenge. With simple switches and stress-free upgrades, you'll enjoy every second spent relaxing and re-energizing in your new space.
