1. Dealing with Soap Scum
One of the most common things that cause your custom shower glass to get dirty is soap scum. We use soap every day to clean ourselves, and a soapy residue is left on the glass. It’s a solid white residue that happens when water is mixed with soap. Soap scum can leave your custom shower glass looking cloudy. The best way to deal with soap scum is to scrub it away with a household product that is mildly acidic. Take a Scotch Brite pad along with water and lemon juice and get to scrubbing. This method will really help you keep your custom shower glass looking fantastic.
2. Preventing Dirty Shower Glass
Perhaps the best way to keep your custom shower glass looking great is preventing it from ever getting dirty. It’s easier than you might think to prevent soap scum and other stains like hard water stains from forming. Simply purchase a hydrophobic silicone polymer such as Rain-X on your custom glass shower door. After that, the water will bead up and roll off instead of lingering and causing stains. Sure, water spots and soap scum might return at some point, but it will typically take a long time after you spray your custom glass door with the polymer.
3. Regular Cleaning Routine
The last tip for keeping your custom glass shower doors clean is to get into a regular cleaning routine. That means trying to clean your custom glass at least once a month, if not more frequently. The longer you wait to clean your custom glass, the more residue and soap scum will have built up on it. This can make your job a lot more difficult. Getting into a regular glass cleaning routine will keep your custom shower glass looking great all of the time. You will enjoy getting into the shower so much more when it’s sparkling and clean.
