The wife and I recently bought a home and the slate shower looked great. Over the last couple months though we have noticed that the grout and slate tiles have begun to get a white water staining to them. We’ve tried the scrubbing power of the bubbles and also soft scrub but nothing has helped. Before I hire someone I wanted to see if anyone had had to clean their slate shower before and what worked for them. All help is greatly appreciated. My attempts to find advice through the web has turned up varying ideas of how and what to use but nothing ever saying “yes i tried this and it worked great” Thanks for the advice

Sounds like lime or calcium build up try, CLR to clean it before you call someone in.
