A glass shower door can often be the focal point of your bathroom. (If you are unconvinced, check out our article on why you need one). Unlike other enclosures and curtains however, there are a few extra steps you need to take in order to keep your shower doors looking clean and streak-free. Below, we’ve come up with 5 ways to keep your shower doors spotless.
When it comes to buying cleaning supplies there are a few tried and true products we love to deliver a streak-free finish. Windex is a great overall cleaner and contains Ammonia – D, which cuts right through most grimy build-ups. If you want to save a few bucks though, you can fill a spray bottle with a 50/50 solution of vinegar and water. We recommend using distilled water that contains zero minerals, as tap water can leave behind streaks.
For most people, cleaning day involves toting around a roll of paper towels. That may suffice for cleaning certain surfaces, but when it comes to your glass you’ll quickly find that they leave long, linty streaks. Instead, use a microfiber cloth, or squeegee to clean your shower doors and you’ll be streak-free for days!
According to The Spruce, preventing drips is crucial to preserving a spot free finish, and its super easy to do. Just start at the top and work your way to the bottom, wiping any drips that may occur along the way while channeling your inner karate kid!
The corners of shower doors are sometimes an easy spot to miss, as they don’t show dirt and grime as clearly as the rest of your shower. What you may not see however, is that this a common place for mildew to build up. For a truly spotless bathroom, don’t neglect the gritty details!
You should also ventilate your shower to keep it from smelling moldy, and keep the glass clean for longer periods of time. Air dry your shower quickly by opening the shower door, opening a window, or turning on a vent. Exposing wet surfaces to the air will preserve previous cleaning sessions longer, and make your next one much easier!
