Is shower glass hard to clean? What do I need to know about cleaning it?

Shower glass doors are an excellent way to add beauty to you bathroom, but when the glass becomes dirty it can be an unwelcoming eyesore. We at Excel Glass thought it would be nice to help our customers keep their glass doors clean by offering some easy tips that we have learned over the years in the glass industry.

Tips to Clean Shower Glass Doors:

Cleaning with Vinegar: White vinegar is great in removing soap scum from glass. Dilute white vinegar and water in a spray bottle. Just add a few drops of white vinegar, then water. If the doors are wet, then take a small squeegee and remove the water, then spray with white vinegar and water from the spray bottle. If there are hard to remove scum spots, then take a sponge and wipe down the doors with mixture, then wipe with the sponge. After the white vinegar mixture is clean, then just rinse with clear water.

Baking Soda: Baking soda is excellent in removing water stains and mildew. Take a dab of baking soda and water to make a paste, then apply the paste with a sponge to the stains or mildew. Wipe down this area, then rinse.

Over the Counter Cleaners: Over the counter cleaners can be used if they are designed for shower doors. If the cleaners aren’t designed for the doors, then they can be abrasive and cause more damage. Make sure the cleaners are designed for glass doors.
