There are two types of people in the world: Shower curtain people and glass door people. No matter which you prefer (which do you prefer?), we can all agree that glass shower doors are kind of a pain to keep clean. Here are 5 tips, products and solutions that make it a cinch to keep your shower door spotless around the clock.
Squeegee Every Day
Without a doubt, this is the most effective way to keep a clean glass shower, but it's also the most demanding. Not time-wise (it takes a minute, tops, to squeegee your shower door after each use), but demanding in a different way. You have to get yourself – and everybody at home – into a new daily habit. If you're up for the challenge, we've heard great things about Cleret shower squeegees ($10-$20).
A Magic Eraser
If your shower is neglected and in need of a deep clean, try a Magic Eraser to get rid of soap scum and mineral deposits. It makes quick work of yucky residue, and then you can use it to give the faucets and hardware a shine.
A Dryer Sheet
Take a dryer sheet from the laundry room, get it lightly damp, and then use it to scrub down the glass shower door. It's really that simple. And it really works! The same ingredients that soften your fabrics will soften soap scum and lift it right off the glass.
Bar Keepers Friend
This seemingly one-note cleaner is not only great to keep in the kitchen, it can also clean and polish your glass shower doors to a perfect shine.
Pine-Sol and an old T-Shirt
This is the tip that gets passed down through my circle of friends and family: Mix Pine-Sol together with water in a spray bottle (the Pine-Sol website suggests ⅛ cup of Pine-Sol in ½ gallon of warm water) and spray it on your shower door before wiping it all down with an soft and worn-out T-Shirt.
