How to Keep Glass Shower Doors Clean
Glass shower doors make for a beautiful addition to your Orem home, but you may have heard that they’re like magnets for hard water spots and soap scum. This can be true – but fortunately, keeping a shower enclosure clean isn’t all that difficult.
While a consistent cleaning schedule is key, the amount of time and effort you’ll need to put in to make your shower sparkle is minimal. Here, the professional team at Complete Glass shares their best tips for squeaky clean glass shower doors.
Invest in a Squeegee
Using a squeegee after every shower is an easy way to keep a glass enclosure clean. To effectively wipe away the water drops, start at the top, applying slight pressure as you drag the squeegee down the glass. After three or four strokes per door, your shower will be spotless.
Use a Microfiber Cloth
If you’re not a fan of squeegeeing, grab a microfiber cloth and use it to wipe down your shower doors. This works just as well as a squeegee to keep the surface free of water spots and soap scum – and many people prefer using a microfiber cloth, as it can dry the corners, door handles and other hard-to-reach areas.
Let the Air Circulate
Leave the bathroom door open after you take a shower and, if the room has a window, open it. If not, run the exhaust fan. Taking these steps helps with air circulation, which helps to dry out any remaining water droplets – and that helps prevent the development of mold and mildew.
Clean with a Mild Soap
Once a week or so, fit in a quick cleaning – right after a shower is the best time, since the steam will have loosened up any filmy grime on the doors. Use a mild glass cleaning product or, better yet, a natural solution like baking soda and dish detergent. Apply with a soft sponge, rinse and then dry the surface with a microfiber cloth.
Apply a Protective Coating
Applying a coat or two of Rain-X or another water repellent product to your glass shower doors will greatly reduce the amount of water droplets left behind after a shower. Do this task after a quick cleaning, and the protective coating will help your glass enclosure stay spotless for a few months.
