Does clear glass get dirty faster than obscure glass?

Clear glass used to be the only option in shower doors, but today obscure glass is offered. Generally, clear glass does get dirty faster because it shows water stains and soap scum easier due to its transparency. Obscure glass adds texture and acts as a camouflage to any stains since it is semi-transparent. It comes in a variety of options, including: ice, satin, glacier, bronze, cast, bubbles, or a grey effect.

Both are easy to clean with a quick wipe down or squeegee after each use. They are going to get dirty at the same rate, but the clear glass will be more noticeable in the light.
