Nothing enhancing the look of a bathroom like a beautiful glass shower door. However, because your shower door is constantly being exposed to water, soap, and other things that can cause build-up, it’s important to know how to clean your shower door properly.
If you’ve noticed that your shower door is looking cloudy or streaky, it may be time to give it a good deep cleaning. Depending on how long you’ve gone without really cleaning your shower door, there are several different tricks you can try to get your shower looking like new again. The good news is, in most cases, you can avoid using harmful chemicals to clean your shower door. In many cases, the perfect solution for cleaning your glass shower may be something that you already have in your home!
Vinegar is good for many different cleaning tasks throughout your home, your shower doors being one of them. If you find yourself faced with a good about of soap scum buildup, then vinegar might be the answer to your prayers! Simply vinegar with a little bit of liquid soap and scrub your shower door with a non-scratch sponge or cloth. It should be noted that if you have natural stone tiles in your shower, you should be careful not to expose them to vinegar because they could get damaged.
If your shower doors have a ton of streaking, then it’s time to head to the kitchen. Lemons can be incredibly effective in getting rid of the pesky streaks that can show up on your glass shower doors. Simply cut a lemon in half, dip it in a little baking soda, and go to work rubbing on the surface of your shower doors. Once you’ve gone through and rubbed the lemon all over, let it sit for a few minutes before wiping it off with a damp cloth. Just like that, your shower doors will be streak free.
They say prevention is the best medicine. One of the best ways to combat build up on your shower doors is to avoid letting it happen in the first place. Many of our clients find it useful to keep a squeegee near their shower at all times. That way, when you step out of the shower, you can give it a quick pass with your squeegee, eliminating most of the water and soap before they have an opportunity to really set in.
