Cleaning Shower Doors

I need something to clean my shower doors. I have tried just about everything from regular windex to vinager and even the spray foam window clean with newspaper. I just can't get the soap scum off at the bottom. We squeggie(spelling) them after every shower. Anyone have suggestions?? I can't stand the way they look and they are only 6 months old. I will try anything

Re: Cleaning Shower Doors

This is my nightmare. I have found that dry cleaning with the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser works best, followed by rubbing lightly with a sock with a little bit of Old English furniture oil. The oil gives it a shine, and helps the water bead up after showers. We're currently selling our home, and I've gotten many compliments on my clean shower doors!

Re: Cleaning Shower Doors

Have you tried the Clorox with bleach spray cleaner? That stuff gets pretty much anything clean for me!

I also agree with the Magic Eraser, those are great too!!!

We use scrubbing bubbles, let it sit then use a sponge, and it comes out shiny & clear.

Re: Cleaning Shower Doors

When we got our shower doors installed, the guy sprayed on this stuff kinda like rainex but very powerful, It lasts probably a year, and the water just falls off of the doors.

Our shower doors are spotless

Once you get them clean coat them with Rain-x. You will get soo much less buildup and the water will bead right off of them Chat Icon

RainX is this the product you use on your cars windshield?

We just squeegee the water off right after showering. No chemicals required.

Re: Cleaning Shower Doors

We squeegee, but you still get the soap scum.

I use Ka-Boom spray in a purple bottle. It works great. I usually wipe it with a Magic Eraser, but it is unneccesary.

Re: Cleaning Shower Doors

Ok, here is my magic secret for super tough scum and mildew-X-14

I will warn you--it smells BADLY of chlorin but it works VERY quick and absolutely NOTHING escapes it! I love that stuff! Nothing else work as well and as fast!

Just make sure you open windows to create a draft when you use it!
