Lather, water stains and other dirt inevitably remain on the shower doors. To keep the doors as clean as the rest of the bathroom, you don't have to constantly scrub them, you need to find a way to keep them clean. Clean your shower doors with store-bought products or a home remedy with vinegar and water.
Method 1 of 2: Method One: Commercial Products
Step 1. Buy a commercial soap suds remover
These can be found in any hardware store or supermarket.
- Follow the directions on the bottle. Most commercial products need to be sprinkled on the door and scrubbed off any dirt or lather.
Step 2. Buy a generic shower door cleaner, powder, gel, or spray
Step 3. Try spraying glass cleaner on the door, then wipe it off
It won't remove heavy dirt or soap suds, but it can give your door a shine after you've washed the dirt.
Step 4. Rub the doors with dish soap
It can be applied to a sponge or, as some recommend, to fabric softener.
Step 5. Talk to the seller in the store or the online store support team
Describe to them what your shower door looks like and they might be able to recommend the best solution.
Method 2 of 2: Method Two: Vinegar and Water
Step 1. Fill a universal spray bottle with a one-to-one mixture of water and distilled white vinegar
Step 2. Spray the mixture on the shower door
Leave it on for 5 minutes. If the lather is very stubborn, or you haven't washed the doors for a long time, you can leave it on for up to 30 minutes.
Step 3. Collect a bucket or basin of water
You can use a sink or bath.
Step 4. Wash the shower door with a sponge soaked in water and rinse off the applied mixture
- Pay special attention to the places of contact between the doors, do not forget to rinse them thoroughly as well.
- Spray the mixture onto metal parts as well. If necessary, dirt and plaque can be rubbed with an old toothbrush.
Step 5. When you have washed off the mixture with water, wipe the doors dry
To do this, you can use a clean towel or rag, wipe thoroughly. Leaving water on the door will only exacerbate the situation.
- Rubber gloves can be used to protect your hands.
- After cleaning, wipe the doors with baby or lemon oil to slow down the dirt.
