How to Clean Bathroom Shower Doors

Cleaning shower doors can be made easy if you learn the technique of handling and cleaning glass. Continue reading for a few ideas on how to use different cleaning products to cleanse.

Bathroom shower doors are notorious for accumulating soap scum and grime. However, with the proper cleaning methods, shower doors can remain clean longer and even repel soap scum. Both glass and plastic shower doors can be cleaned using the same process using either commercial or natural materials.

Vinegar – vinegar is the one item that every household should have. It is effective and safe in cleaning a number of different things and your glass shower screen is no different. Simply put white vinegar into a spray bottle and spray onto the shower door. Scrub the mixture onto the screen with a Chux Non Scratch Scourer Scrub before rinsing off with warm water. Make sure you label the spray bottle so that you know what item is in there. You don’t want your kids to find the spray bottle and assume it is water.

Baking Soda – baking soda is another magic cleaning solution that will not only clean the shower but also deodorize your bathroom. Get your shower screen wet before wiping the shower screen with baking soda on a cloth. You can expect a paste to form on the door when you mix the baking soda with the water. Rinse off with warm water after.

Lemon Oil – another good household remedy to keep the soap residue at bay is lemon oil. Simply spray lemon oil (orange oil works too) to the door and buff it off with a cloth. However, don’t use this technique too often as it can cause some damage. Every two weeks should keep your shower looking fresh, clean and smelling much better too.

Rock Salt - Rock salt is very effective in getting rid of hard-water deposits on glass shower doors. However, rock salt are only able to be used on glass shower doors and never any other material. Use a sponge to wash rock salt onto the glass doors and rinse.

Hydrogen Peroxide - However, your wait time is going to be about an hour before you can rinse off. Peroxide can also be irritating to eyes, so use carefully.

Lemon Juice and Salt – this is the most effective option if your glass shower door frames are made out of metal. Over time you may notice that rust forms which can make your shower look dirty and old as well. Combine one tablespoon of lemon juice to two tablespoons of salt and form a paste. Using a toothbrush, scrub the mixture into the corners where the rust is forming. Let the mixture sit for a few minutes before rinsing it off with warm water.
