How to clean glass shower doors

The best way to keep your glass shower doors clean is to prevent the water from drying and causing mineral buildup. For a quick clean and to stay ahead of mineral build up, keep a squeegee handy. Use it to clean the glass after each shower.

There will still be times when your shower glass needs to be cleaned. You can clean your shower glass by saturating it with a spray bottle of white vinegar. Let the vinegar soak for a few minutes (longer for tougher buildup) then scrub the glass with a plastic bristle brush or a sponge dipped in baking soda. Do not use metal brushes or scouring pads because they may scratch the glass. Then rinse the glass doors with cold water and dry with a microfiber cloth or soft absorbent towel.

You can also purchase a commercial cleaner containing phosphoric acid to clean the mineral deposits from your glass shower doors. If your home has hard water, installing a water softener is another option that will lessen the mineral buildup on the shower glass.
