Quick Guide to Cleaning Shower Doors
Over time, soap scum builds up on the glass doors to your shower. It is unsightly and generally a pain to get rid of. But in reality, it’s not that bad if you just have the proper tools for the job. First, let’s start with how you could have avoided this problem:
- Use a squeegee. If you had get all of the water off of the door after each shower, soap scum would have a much harder time ruining your day.
- Clean your shower door regularly. If you keep up with it, it will decrease the need for heavier cleaning and scrubbing later on.
- Use an after shower spray. There are a number of different ones on the market. A simple spray or two after every shower can save you a lot of work.
Well, with that out of the way, we can tackle the issue at hand. A few months ago, we showed you how vinegar can be a powerful cleaner. The same applies here. Vinegar plus steam from the shower are quite the tag team. First, run the hot water in the shower until it makes steam. The steam will actually loosen and weaken the build-up. Next, give the door a good spray with vinegar and let it sit. Be careful of the fumes, wear a mask if you need to. There is no shame in wanting to breathe properly. After the vinegar sits for a little while, you can wipe. I warn you, it may not be as easy as I am making it sound. You may have to scrub. It will be worth it though. Soon, your door will be shining as it once was.
Now that you have your shower doors all shiny, remember the prevention tips and it will be smooth sailing for you from here on out. April Showers month has almost concluded and I bet you’re wondering what the finale will be. Well, I like my readers, but a gentleman never tells. You’ll just have to come back.
