WD-40 on shower doors?

Mar 12, 2007

We're always intrigued by uncommon uses for common household products. Earlier this year, AT:NY had a post about the miracle uses for WD-40. Recently, we received another tip about WD40 being good for shower doors. So... over the weekend, we thought we'd actually try it out...

On the web, there are several sites that have mentioned this. Click here, here and here for a few.

On the actual can, it does in fact say that it "cleans... water deposits." So we first opened the window, and turned on the fan (experience has shown that WD-40 fumes can be scary!) Then we sprayed down the door,waited a few minutes, then wiped it off. The results were mixed. We noticed that it did get rid of any deposits on anything that was metal, but on the glass part itself, not so much. We're not sure if perhaps we should have employed a certain technique, or maybe it needed more time to sit and disolve... Has anyone else tried this or had success? Does anyone have any other tips for getting rid of water stains on shower doors? Please share in the comments?
