6 Steps To Clean Your Shower’s Glass Doors And Walls

6 Simple Steps On How To Clean A Shower Glass

Step#1: First, use a shower sprayer for wetting the shower glass. For splashing the walls, you may use a bucket.

Step#2: Now, fill up a spray bottle with white vinegar. Spray the vinegar on the shower glass thoroughly.

Step#3: Allow the vinegar to soak in for 10 minutes. However, if there is significant buildup on the glass, you may let the vinegar soak longer.

Step#4: It's time for some scrubbing now. Use baking soda as a dip for your scrub sponge, and let the magic begin. As vinegar dissolves the hard water spots and scum, the baking soda will act as an abrasive on the glass.

Step#5: Now that you are done with scrubbing, look closely at the glass door. If it’s shining and looking clean, rinse off the glass with fresh water.

Step#6: The last step is to dry the glass. Use a microfiber cloth for this purpose. Also, don’t forget to use a glass cleaner to finish the process. Clean the glass, towel hangers, and trim.

It is important to know that hard water spots may appear again when water drops dry on the glass. To keep your shower glass clean, try to prevent the water from drying on the glass surface. Not sure how to do that? No worries, here are some preventive measures that may help.

  • Keep a squeegee in the shower. It will wipe down the glass after a shower.

  • To keep the water spots off the glass, consider applying a hydrophobic compound, such as Rain X or Clear Choice, on the glass after cleaning.
