Cleaning Shower Doors

How many of you have glass shower doors? And how many of you have looked at those shower doors thinking – how can I get them sparkling clean again?

Well don’t think you have to put the rubber gloves on and use some over powering cleaners because you don’t have to.

There’s no need to use chemicals that stay in your hair and nose follicles. In a weird sort of way that last sentence kind of reminds me a little of the My Favorite Things song from the Sound of Music. Weird, I know.

Anyway there are easy ways of cleaning chemical free. Keep reading to find a better way to clean your shower doors.

News Flash! Fabric Softeners Are Not Just for the Dryer

Go to the laundry room and get one of the dryer sheets. When you’re back in the bathroom, moisten it a little and start swiping away those hard water stains.

When you’ve finished, use a paper towel to wipe the door down and you’ll be amazed that you can see through the shower door again. Yippee!!


White vinegar is non-toxic and can also be used to clean the glass on shower doors. In a spray bottle use equal amounts of water to vinegar, then spray and wipe clean.

Vinegar is slightly acidic so make sure you are not spraying around marble, granite, and natural stones as it can etch the surface and ruin the shine.

The Power of Baking Soda

Alright, for this method you might want to wear gloves but only because you will also be using hot water.

Not only does baking soda work great for cooking and scrubbing dirty pots and pans but it’s also a great cleaning agent for removing soap scum.

Get something that you can pour hot water in. Then get a sponge, dip it in the hot water, then sprinkle a fair amount of baking soda on the sponge. Using some elbow grease the baking soda will wipe right through that hard to remove soap scum.

Keep the sponge wet and use more baking soda as needed.

Magic Erasers Are Really Quite Magic

The magic eraser is used with the same idea as the fabric softener. Dampen the magic eraser and clean the door for a sparkling clean! Follow up with a wet sponge or cloth then dry.

So you see. You can use items you already have in the house to clean the shower. No chemicals, no harsh smells.
