How to Clean Glass Shower Doors

July 8, 2021

A glass shower door can add a touch of elegance to any bathroom. But how do you keep it looking like new to keep that elegant touch shining through for years to come? There are a few different ways to make sure it stays clean. Here are some tips on how to clean a glass shower door.

Water and white vinegar

One way to perform glass shower door cleaning is with the time-tested solution of water and white vinegar. Mix two parts water to one part white vinegar, and pour the mixture into a clean spray bottle. Spray the glass, and wipe it clean with newspaper or lint-free paper towels to avoid streaks. This method must be applied after every shower to be most effective.

Other glass cleaners

Aside from vinegar and water, commercial glass cleaners will work for glass shower door cleaning as well. These will likely be more powerful than vinegar and water and will not leave a vinegar-scented presence lingering in your shower. It’s still recommended to clean after every shower, even if you’re using commercial cleaners, to maintain a healthy and clear shine.

ClearShield Glass Protection

There is another way to keep your glass shower door clean, and that’s with ClearShield Glass Protection. This makes it easier to clean your glass shower door and keep it looking clear and shining for longer.

ClearShield Glass Protection is a polymeric resin coating that changes the surface of the glass when applied. It smooths out the surface, leaving fewer pores in the glass. This means it’s harder for dirt and grime to stick to the glass or penetrate the surface. It’s nontoxic and nonhazardous to humans and animals.

This process makes cleaning the glass shower door a breeze. Instead of spraying and scrubbing after every shower, you only need to use a squeegee once every few days on the inside of the glass door. Once a week, spray it with your cleaner of choice, and wipe it clean with newspaper or lint-free paper towels. It’s also recommended that, once a month, you spray on some ClearShield Aftercare to keep the resin as clear as possible.

ClearShield Glass Protection can be applied before your glass shower door is installed, so it will receive full coverage and all of the benefits the process can give. It will help keep your shower door free of soap scum, limescale or dirt stains. It can even help against residue left by hard water. Without this protection, in order to keep your glass looking like new, you will need to squeegee and clean just about every day.
