A glass shower door can make even the most minimalistic, plain bathroom look elegant and modern. However, they also tend to accumulate more grime and mineral residue than any other door, what with being constantly assaulted with water. In case your shower door looks way less transparent than it used to be, you might want to try some of these methods.
1. Try Vinegar!
Is there an object that Vinegar isn’t capable of cleaning? Just mix vinegar with dish detergent equally after boiling it and we are done! This is an environment-friendly as a method can get. For scrubbing, use a non-scratch sponge to make sure you don’t accidentally end up making your shower door look worse.
2. If Not Vinegar, Then Citrus!
You will not only have your shower door squeaky clean after using this trick, but your bathroom would smell nicer in general. All you need to do is mix one half of a lemon with baking soda and then apply it on the glass door. Baking soda and the acid in the lemon experiences a chemical reaction, leading to a sustainable foam that’s perfect for cleaning. Once done, rubbing a little lemon oil on it is recommended. With this, you can prevent the soap from sticking to the glass.
3. Use Tools For Shower Cleaning!
The edges of your shower door are usually the most susceptible to stains. A toothbrush is enough to take care of the metal frame while a razor, applied with caution and precision, can be used to deal with mineral residues. The blade of the razor needs to be as sharp as possible, and better yet, if you position it at 45-degree angle so that you don’t accidentally scratch the glass. A paint scraper is more suited for the area where the shower door and the metal frame are connected.
