Cleaning Your Glass Shower Doors

Glass shower doors cleaning tips is about helping you clean your new or old glass shower doors. The problem is dirt. When you take a shower, all the grime and dirt from your body is washed off and left in the shower. If you have glass doors, a lot of the dirt will be caught on the surface.

Because of the purus nature of glass, it collects a lot of grime and particles. There are many ways to clean you glass doors. There are natural cleaning remedies and there is store bought remedies.  Here are some tips you can use to wipe off the glass doors.

Tip #1: Cornstarch and Water - When you combine these two they make a thick paste. Take the pasted and rub it on your glass doors. All you have to do is take a damp rag and wipe it off. It will clean it quite nicely.

Tip #2: Vinegar and Water - An oldie but goodie, vinegar and water is something that you can find in your house probably right now. All you do is mix these together and dip your rag into the solution. Take the rag and wipe down the glass as though you were using a spray on cleaner. If you would like some tips for cleaning your home or cabinets, click here. You can get a plastic spray bottle and put it in the bottle. This solution works very well for cleaning the glass.

Tip #3: Liquid Detergent - Take the liquid detergent and place it on the stains. Wait awhile and then wash it off with some warm water. You can also scrub the stains if need be to get all the dirt and scum off. After you rinse it off and dry is with a towel, your glass will be squeaky clean.

Tip #4: Microfiber Towel - One of the best towels to use when cleaning and wiping your glass shower doors off is a microfiber towel. The towel creates an electric static that pulls the dirt up off of the glass and removes it instead of scraping it across the surface like regular towels do.

Besides the microfiber towel, you can find most of these things around your house or at the grocery store with little cost.

If you want to used a manufactured product to clean your shower doors, than you may want to try Driven Extreme Duty Glass Cleaner. I have used this stuff personally and I love it. You can get it by clicking on the picture. It is an affiliate link so if you choose to buy it I will receive a percentage.

The best part about Driven is that it really removes the hard water spots that come with glass doors. I have used all the remedies above and they just don't remove the spots like Driven does.

I recommend this product also because of the mold killing properties it has as well. I know in my shower, it can heat up pretty good and if I do not clean the shower than the mold can grow.

If you use this product, make sure that you buy some good towels that are microfiber as a suggested earlier.

You should use 300 GSM towels and nothing less. These are the best for cleaning glass and they absorb the most water.

There is a method to clean the glass using steam which I like but have not used. I would not talk about it here but I have had friends who have use this machine and they swear by it. Some people claim that it can cause a little harm to the environment by creating the steam but in all the research I have done there is nothing I could find.

Steamers work like this. They hold water and create steam used to clean the dirt and scum off of the glass. It also can be used to detail cars and clean car windows. If you need some tips cleaning car windows, click here.

Steamers are great to use around the house as well, not just in the bathroom. You can use them on windows around the house and floors.

After you us

e the steamer on the glass, you take your towel and wipe it off. It is that simple. The steamer that I recommend McCulloch MC-1275 Heavy-Duty Steam Cleaner.

If you would like check out the cleaner, click on this picture. Again this is an affiliate link just so you know.

 

Try to allow the steam to sit on the glass for a short period so that it pulls out the grime before you wipe it off.

I hope that this helps and that you are able to enjoy your glass shower doors and never feel like you can't clean them.

Cheers!
