Clean shower doors are easy to achieve provided you have the self-discipline to clean them regularly. We offer some simple tips you can follow to make this task more enjoyable and satisfying.
Sparkling Shower Doors
1.Vinegar and Dish Washing Liquid
To remove soap buildup from your shower doors, apply a mixture of equal parts liquid dish washing soap and warm vinegar. You can also add a pinch or two of baking soda if the buildup is heavy. Spray the mixture on the surface of your shower doors and let it stay for 20 minutes. Then wipe it off with a mild scrubber and wash away the residue with warm water.
2. Clean While you Shower
There are two good reasons for cleaning your shower doors while taking a shower. Firstly, any dirt has probably been loosened by the warm water, so you won’t need a lot of soap or cleaning chemicals to do the job. Secondly, it will be easier for you to wash yourself up after cleaning your shower doors. Simply take a scouring pad to scrape off the loosened dirt and grime from your shower doors.
3. Go Natural
Citrus fruits such as lemons and oranges are as effective at cleaning shower doors as store-bought chemical products. Simply cut a lemon or orange in half and coat it in some baking soda. Use this to scrub the glass door and get the dirt off the surface. You can also prevent soap stains by spraying some lemon oil after washing off the dirt as this will help to remove soapy water completely.
4. Be Resourceful
You can find a lot of handy tools around the house to help you clean shower doors easily. An old toothbrush is perfect for getting into the sliding frames. You can even use a scraper to get rid of the sticky grime that gets stuck between the hinges. For more stubborn glass stains and blots, an old safety razor can get the job done pretty well.
5. Take Preventive Action
This will only take a couple of minutes after your daily shower. Keep a squeegee handy inside the shower and use it to wipe your shower doors after a shower. If you can spare some more time, spray a homemade cleaning solution a few minutes beforehand. You can make this by adding half a cup of vinegar and a few drops of liquid dish washing soap to one cup of water.
