How do you clean your glass shower doors? I have had the hardest time getting the soap scum and white scale off of them. Short of using oven cleaner, I thought I had pretty much tried everything. Apparently not, however.
I mixed 1/2 white vinegar and 1/2 warm water. I applied that just dripping wet with a rag and left it on for 10 minutes. Then I scrubbed with one of those green pads and rinsed. There was still some on the glass. ugh!! Then I made a paste of equal parts baking soda and warm water. I plastered it on the shower door and left it for 5 minutes before rinsing well and drying. Walla!! Shiny clear door except a few spots I missed. Those will be taken care of tomorrow though.
Who knew the product I needed was right in my kitchen all the time? All of this other stuff can be trashed or I will give it to my housekeeper for her to use some place else!! I will no longer be buying that expensive stuff.
My housekeeper called in sick so that was why I was scrubbing the shower, by the way. Yes, I am one spoiled princess! :)
Now, I know some of you might not be the shower cleaner of the home but you sure might surprise your spouse one day with this knowledge with a little show and tell. lol
Try CLR most of what you see is calcium deposits. The Calcium actually etches the glass. When I get around to doing my shower I am going with (I think this is the right name) Water Guard on the new glass. Its about $200 extra but seems well worth it.
When you get your showers done, call kwgraniteguy!!! He's a sweetheart and he did a great job on our granite. I wish I had called him about our tiling, but he will be the one to do our kitchen granite & tile and our tile in the den/dining/kitchen & other bath.
Comet has a spray, fairly cheap. I use that. Spray on the glass then put dawn dish soap on the spounge (only use the green and yellow scotch sponges) and then also add a little rinse aid for your dishwasher. THe comet eats the soap scum, dawn removes all the body oils and soap oils, and the rinse aid acts like rainx and allows the water from when you shower to NOT stick to the glass, making it easier to clean the next time.
I always use Comet and dawn. (the pot scrubbing dawn is best) and the rinse aid I only do about once a month or so.
monza, can you stop by and teach my hubby how to do that? lol
It's really just a simple 10 step procedure...
Step 1: Step into shower. Step 2: Start water and get wet. Step 3: Apply soap and scrub all over. Step 4: Thoroughly rinse off. Step 5: Turn off water. Step 6: Grab squeegee and squeegee off all water. Step 7: Step 6 was for the shower walls and door, so now do them. Step 8: Take towel and finish drying body. Step 9: With towel from step 8, dry remaining moisture from shower walls and door. Step 10: Get out of shower and optionally, put some clothes on.
