How to Clean a Glass Shower Screen

How to shine up a glass shower screen! You get the impression that you’re just smearing it with a product to make it look even worse!

Glass shower doors are becoming increasingly popular as a more contemporary option for homes worldwide. Unlike a regular shower curtain, a glass screen is better at keeping water in the shower and off the floor.

They’re also safer for small children because they can’t stand up in the shower and pull the curtain entirely down. However, let’s face it: glass shower screens are tough to keep clean.

You may notice that your glass shower screen becomes duller and duller over time, with a dark coloration or spots that you can’t seem to get cleared off.

Hard water and soap accumulation on glass shower screens build up over time. If not cleaned, it can forever damage your shower screen by ‘etching’ the glass, leaving it less than perfectly shiny. If you feel like you can’t get your shower screen completely clean no matter what you do, you’re not alone.

Even if your shower is spotless, it will appear dirty and uninviting if there is a residue buildup on the screen. If you don’t want to use the harsher shower screen chemicals, you’re in luck. Several other natural cleaning solutions will effectively clean your glass shower screen without endangering your health or that of your family.

All of these suggestions will work!

It all depends on what you have on hand at home:

Homemade Shower Cleaner

This simple shower cleaner works just as well (if not better) as most commercially available shower cleaning products, which can be pretty costly. This is a low-cost and simple solution. It’s simple. Here’s how to do it:

1 cup vinegar (white)

1 cup boiling water

1 teaspoon dishwashing/cleaning liquid

Combine all of the ingredients in a spray bottle. Give the mixture a good squirt in the shower, and all the grime will wash right off!

Make use of Magic Erasers

Magic Erasers are fine fibers that sift through grime without chemical cleaners. Use water to activate and wipe the glass. They are fantastic at removing soap scum.

Soap scum on glass shower covers can be easily removed with Magic Erasers or similar products.

Fabric Softener is a good option

Using one cup of fabric softener in one liter of warm water to remove residue and soap scum from your glass shower screen is adequate. Simply wipe the mixture on the door before rinsing it off with warm shower water.

If you have dryer and dryer sheets on hand, use the dryer sheets to wipe down the shower door. This will also get rid of the soap scum.

How to Stop Soap Scum from Forming on Glasses

If you clean your glass shower screen thoroughly and then wipe it down with baby oil, you can avoid soap scrum for good.

Gently rub the oil with steel wool to remove as much scum as possible. Yes, it appears to be a disaster. After that, soak a cloth in white vinegar and use circular motions to buff the shower screen. Then rinse (carefully, as the oil drips onto the floor can be slick!). This creates a beautiful, streak-free shine on your shower screen.

White vinegar is a gentle glass shower screen cleaner

White vinegar is one item that should be in every home. It’s practical and safe for cleaning various surfaces, including your glass shower screen. Fill a spray bottle with white vinegar and squirt it on the shower door. Before rinsing with warm water, scrub the mixture onto the screen with a Non-Scratch Scourer Scrub.

Ensure the spray bottle is clearly labeled, so you know what’s inside. You don’t want your kids to come across the spray bottle and think it’s filled with water.

Soda bicarbonate

Another magical cleaning solution is bicarb, which not only cleans but also deodorizes your bathroom. Before wiping your shower screen with baking soda on a cloth, make sure it’s wet. When you combine the baking soda and water, a paste should form on the door. After that, rinse with warm water.

Purchase a Squeegee

Water sitting on the shower screen for long periods is the most common cause of mineral buildup and stains. Invest in a squeegee if you want to keep that glass super clean, super shiny, and always looking good (which you can pick up in the cleaning section of the supermarket or hardware store).

Encourage everyone in the family to squeegee the shower screen after each shower. Seriously, the kids will enjoy themselves, so it will not be a chore! You will notice that you no longer need to clean your shower screen because it is kept in such good condition!

Salt and lemon juice

This is the best option if your glass shower door frames are formed of metal. You may notice rust forming over time, which can make your shower appear dirty and old. Make a paste with one tablespoon of lemon juice and two tablespoons of salt.

Scrub the mixture into the corners where the rust forms with a toothbrush. Allow a few minutes for the mixture to sit before rinsing it off with warm water.

Lemon Oil

Lemon oil is another effective home remedy for removing soap residue. Spray the door with lemon oil (orange oil will also work) and buff it off with a cloth. However, please don’t use this technique too frequently because it can be harmful. Your shower should look fresh, and clean, and smell much better after every two weeks.

And if it’s too complicated…

Cleaning shower screens, as well as windows in general, is a time-consuming task!

So, if shower screen cleaning makes you lose your will to live, call the experts at Maids in Apron and relax while sipping a glass of Prosecco!
