Tips For Keeping Glass Shower Doors Clean

Posted on

Glass shower doors look amazing but tend to get smudged rather easily. If a person is in the shower and doesn't have his or her glasses, he or she might end up touching the glass rather than the handle to the door, leaving a smudge. Luckily, it is relatively easy to keep your shower doors clean so that your shower looks as good as the day that it was installed.

1. Take the Time to Squeegee

In order to avoid getting any water marks on your shower, get yourself and the rest of your family into the habit of squeegeeing every day. It would be most effective to have each person take a squeegee and get rid of any water each time after they shower, but that is often not realistic. If you have kids, assign them the task of squeegeeing the shower right when they get home from school. If you don't have kids, simply get into the habit of squeegeeing the shower when you get home from work or after you have just taken a shower. This is the easiest way to prevent water stains on your shower.

2. Use a Dyer Sheet to Get Rid of Soap Scum

Make sure that you get rid of soap scum off of your glass shower door at least once a week in order to keep your door looking great and prevent the scum from causing permanent damage. One of the easiest and cheapest ways to get rid of the soap scum is to use a dryer sheet. A dryer sheet contains chemicals that break down the soap that is on your clothes when you put them in the dryer. You can use those same chemicals to break down the soap on your glass shower doors. Take a dryer sheet and spray it with a little bit of water. Then, start wiping down your shower door. The soap should come right off.

3. Use a Glass Cleaner Once a Week

Finally, spray down your shower door with a glass cleaner and squeegee it off in order to make your shower doors more resistant to stains and other problems. This will allow you to go slightly longer between actively squeegeeing the water out after your showers.

For more information, talk to a company that specializes in glass shower doors. They will be able to recommend some specific cleaners for your particular brand of glass shower door.
