All of us face a job that seems to never end when it’s time to clean your shower doors. Shower doors seem to attract scum out of the air. How can something that’s always being wet down when you shower get so dirty?
When it’s time for you to clean your shower doors, here are some tips to keep in mind.
First, when you select the products you’ll use to clean your shower doors, you can choose from commercial cleaners, more natural cleaners, or something you mix up yourself. All of them can do a good job.
The commercial cleaners may contain chemicals that are harmful to you if you breathe in the fumes or get the cleaner on your skin. You want to be sure to wear protection when you clean your shower doors with these products. Keep in mind the companies that make these products may not list the ingredients, but they have to post warnings about danger to your health. If you use these products, be sure the room is well ventilated.
There are more natural products you can use as well. They are typically plant-based and may cost a little more. They are non-corrosive and environmentally friendly.
If you choose to mix up your own solution when you clean your shower doors, there are several products you can use.
For example, sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) is a good choice when you clean your shower doors because it is a mild alkali that cuts grease and scum very well. It also is naturally a deodorizer and will leave your bathroom smelling good.
Vinegar is another good choice when you clean your shower doors. Mix it up with water. It is acidic by nature and kills bacteria, germs, and fungus. While it can be used on its own, some people mix it with equal parts dish soap. Warm the vinegar in the microwave first to help the dish soap dissolve.
Adding some essential oils to the vinegar will leave your bathroom smelling good. Vinegar will help prevent streaks when you use it to clean your shower doors.
You can keep your shower doors clean by keeping a spray bottle of your cleaner in the shower. Spray the door every time you shower and be sure to get it completely dry. Use a liquid soap in the shower instead of bar soap. The liquid soap rinses easier. Dry your shower after every use. Use a squeegee or clean towel and make sure the towel dries before using it again.
