How To Clean Your New Glass Shower Doors

How To Clean Your New Glass Shower Doors

A new frameless glass shower door is just what your bathroom needed. However, after a few months, soap scum and mineral build up can be hard to clean. Finally, when you get it clean, it can be hard to maintain, especially in high traffic bathrooms. So there are some steps you can take to minimize your time cleaning them to keep that beautiful clean new look for years to come. There are also other options for your frameless glass shower doors like special glass for your or protective coatings, both may eliminate most of the time needed to clean.

Standard glass is porous and over time can be damaged by soap scum, hard water, and even humidity. So it is important to maintain daily care of your shower glass. Doing just a little bit of work each day will keep you from having to spend a great deal of time cleaning the shower glass. This process can also stop potential permanent damage to your shower doors. Using a shower glass cleaner, letting sit for a minute and then wiping down your glass with a soft cloth is really all it takes to maintain a virtually brand new looking shower. Some experts suggest using a squeegee to "squee gee" the water off the glass after a shower, but a soft cloth will due the trick as well. The only other important step to take to maintain your shower door glass is to keep your shower ventilated so it does not hold moisture. Moisture within the bathroom and shower enclosure can cause lingering dirt and grime to cling to the glass causing that grimy look you see on some shower doors. So just sprays, wipe, and ventilate daily and your shower glass should stay beautiful for years to come.
