How To Clean Shower Glass
Dirty shower door glass and shower glass walls can make an otherwise clean bathroom look dirty. Shower glass often takes a lot of impact due to the hot water and depending on your water pressure, it can also damage the glass’ surface. Whether your glass is streaky, stained, foggy or you simply want to understand techniques to care for your shower, we have got a strong selection of tricks for effective cleaning.
How Often Should You Clean Your Shower Glass?
Mildew and mold are the leading issues with any shower as they grow best in damp environments, no matter how often you clean it will always find a way to grown on your glass.
It’s best to try to have a routine with cleaning so that you can keep on top of the grime. Ideally you should have a schedule that you do every day, weekly and once a month.
The simplest way to combat mildew and mold is every time someone uses the shower is to use a squeegee to get rid of the majority of the water and after that take an old spare towel to dry it down. Cross multiple chores off your list by cleaning shower doors, walls, and floors at the same time.
Simple Shower Glass Cleaning Schedule
If you keep up with regular light maintenance, you should only have to do a deep clean every so often. This is the glass cleaning schedule our professional shower glass technicians suggest:
Every day: After using the shower, squeegee the glass, wipe down with a towel and leave the door open to air out. (Optional: Make a DIY cleaning solution to spritz over the glass once your finished, to allow you more time between deep cleans)
Weekly: Give your entire shower a wipe-down once a week with a sponge or foam cleaning pad.
Once a month: It’s time for a deep clean. Thoroughly scrub your entire shower, making sure to get in any nooks and crannies. Apply a water repellent spray to prevent hard water stains on glass shower doors.
Glass Deep Clean
Hopefully, if you use those easy, simple, and quick methods for regular care you won’t need to do a deep clean very often. But for some of you, your shower might be in a position that needs some extra help.
Begin by filling a spray bottle with white vinegar, use it to saturate the glass and leave it for 10 minutes or so, if there is a lot of build up you will need to leave it for longer. Once you have left it for long enough take a damp sponge and coat it in some baking soda and get scrubbing. The backing soda will act as an abrasive, while the vinegar dissolves any stains.
When you are happy with the glass, rinse it off with fresh water and dry the glass with a towel, ideally it should be microfiber but if you don’t have one on hand don’t worry about it.
