Easiest Way To Keep Glass Shower Doors Clean

One of the most difficult household tasks is cleaning soap suds and hard mineral deposits from glass shower doors. In this article, you will find several natural products suitable for cleaning glass shower doors, which are much safer and cheaper than their commercial counterparts. 

If those natural products do not work for you, then you can try some commercial products to help clean up your glass doors.

First, we use a shower, then we leave it crystal clear. Nevertheless, while we get a shower, we stain the glass doors with soapy foam. Thus, the sparkling glitter of the glass of the new shower lasts only a few days.

A few days later, the shine buries a layer of soap foam, which is actually a mixture of oils, mineral deposits, talc from soap, mold, and impurities of running water. Moreover, if you tried to get rid of the scum, you already imagine how tedious it can be to clean glass shower doors.

Shelves of shops are bursting with different types of cleaning products for glass doors of a shower cabins. However, these commercial products are very harsh regarding door materials and also toxic to the skin. Thus, using natural cleaners is the best way to clean glass shower doors.


Do you know that vinegar can clean glass shower doors? Put in a clean bottle with a spray of warm water and white distilled vinegar, then spray the mixture on the door of the shower cubicle. Leave for half an hour, then wipe the glass doors with a sponge and rinse with clean water to wash off the foam.

Lemon and Sandpaper

Lemon and sandpaper on the glass are no less effective tools in cleaning glass doors, especially with hard mineral deposits. Put a teaspoon of lemon juice on a glass peel and use it to clean the calcined plaque. The acid in the juice corrodes hard deposits on the glass, making cleaning easier.

Tartar and Hydrogen Peroxide

Removing rust stains from shower doors can be a tedious task. For such stubborn stains, you should prepare a paste with two tablespoons of hydrogen peroxide and five tablespoons of tartar. Apply this paste to the glass with a nylon sponge. After 10 minutes, rinse the paste with distilled water.

Dishwasher Cleaner

If you have dishwasher detergent at home, mix one part of this detergent into three parts of water and spray it on the glass doors. After 15 minutes, wipe the door with a sponge and rinse with distilled water.

Baking Soda

We all know about deodorization and the properties of baking soda. To clean the glass shower doors, apply a little baking soda to the sponge and wipe the door, then rinse it off. Another method is to mix one glass of baking soda and one glass of salt. In a spray bottle, collect white vinegar and spray it on a glass door. Take a sponge and moisten it slightly on one side with plain water. Use a damp sponge to apply a mixture of soda and salt to the door. Wipe and rinse off the door.

Metal Washcloth

Take one teaspoon of detergent and add it to a glass of hot water. Dip a washcloth in this mixture and start cleaning the shower door. Do not worry, a metal washcloth will not scratch the glass doors, its fibers are too small. In fact, it very effectively removes dirt from the door surface, and the detergent destroys hard water deposits.

Rock Salt

Rock salt is a sufficient effective remedy against hard water deposits that remain on the door glass. However, rock salt can only be used on glass shower doors, no other materials. Use a sponge to remove dirt from the glass door and rinse them.

Regardless of what you use to clean glass shower doors, be sure to always use rubber gloves when cleaning. You never know how an allergic reaction to a chemical element can occur. When you decide which cleaning agent is best for your door, cleaning it no longer seems difficult.
