Keeping your bathroom clean can seem like a never-ending task. Though the bathroom is one of the most frequently used areas of your home, cleaning your glass shower door shouldn't add too much time to your weekly chores. Here's some advice for keeping your shower clean.
Create a Schedule
Once the last person has showered for the day, grab your supplies and start wiping down the door. Hot water will help loosen any buildup on the glass, making it easier to scrub off grime. Use a sponge or cleaning pad instead of paper towels to help avoid streaks on the glass. You don't have to do this every night, but consistency is key.
Use Store-Bought or Homemade Products
There are many products that will effectively clean your shower. But if you want to use something with natural ingredients, mix water and white vinegar. This environmentally friendly cleaning solution fights grime and other stains just as well as brand-name shower cleaners. Pour one part vinegar and three parts water into a bottle. Spray your glass shower door enclosure and let it sit for about five minutes. Then, use a warm sponge to wipe off the solution.
Keeping It Clean
Using a squeegee can help keep your glass shower door in tip-top shape. After every shower, do a quick wipe down to remove excess water. When you're not using the bathroom, leave the door open to give the water time to evaporate. If you have a ventilation fan, let it run while you're showering and for several minutes after you finish. This prevents mildew from growing in the shower.
