I have a soap scum problem in the shower. It's so difficult to clean the soap buildup off the walls and don't get me started on cleaning the textured floor. It's a nightmare. The soap has layered and layered over time.
At the moment I've switched from bar soap to liquid pump soap, hoping that will solve the problem.

Advice please!!!!

Yep. Bar soap is the problem.
You'll have to scrub with a scrubbing brush without damaging the grout.

I highly recommend buying a cleaner like this one here,. Ajax Professional Bathroom Power Cleaner

I found White King bleach works really well.

Also, use a soft broom to scrub the shower. Change your everyday soap to a liquid, bristles definitely wear away layers of grout.

If you have a fixed shower head convert it over to one with long shower hose and head. Rinse the soap of the screen and walls and dry with a microfibre cloth. This can cut down the use of bleach and limits mould from forming.
