5 Fast and Easy Tips for Cleaning Shower Glass

Cleaning shower glass can be a daunting task. Streaks, calcium deposits, and hard water stains are an eyesore and all too common. To help you restore your shower glass back to looking as good as new, here are five easy tips for how to clean shower glass quickly and easily.

Shower Glass – How To Clean (Use a Squeegee).

Using a squeegee on dried shower glass can quickly wipe away most of the stubborn streaks and water spots. Make sure to move in one direction, using no more than light pressure, and avoid scrubbing or rubbing aggressively as this can scratch the glass. After you’ve passed over the surface once, wipe down your squeegee with a rag and go over any particularly stubborn spots again. Repeat until the glass is streak free.

Choose the Right Cleaner for Your Glass Type.

When cleaning shower glass, always consult the manufacturer’s instructions first to determine what type of cleaner you should use. Different types of glass require different types of cleansers; for example, less abrasive cleaners may be necessary for framed or tinted glass. Additionally, soft water will prevent calcium build up and beer deposits, which can corrode the seals and scratch the surface of the glass.

Use a glass-cleaning spray or vinegar and water mixture.

When cleaning your shower glass, it’s important to use the right products. You can create your own vinegar and water solution (1 part vinegar to 3 parts water) or purchase a commercial glass-cleaning product. No matter what option you choose, make sure to use lukewarm water when working so that the solution doesn’t dry before you wipe it away.

Scrub Away Stubborn Stains with a Soft Brush or Brillo Pad.

With the right cleaning products, a soft brush or Brillo pad can be used to scrub away stubborn stains. Begin by spraying the glass with an all-purpose cleaner or rubbing alcohol and then use your chosen tools to scrape off the build up. Be sure not to press too hard and always move in the direction of the grain for best results. Once you have successfully removed any dirt and grime, you can dry it off with a cloth or towel.

Finish With Vinegar or Rain-X to Reduce Future Build Up.

After the glass has been thoroughly scrubbed, you can use vinegar or a product like Rain-X to reduce water spots and streaks. Spray either onto the wet glass and then use a squeegee to ensure every area is covered before rinsing with warm water. This additional step not only prevents further build up but also makes it easier to clean your shower glass in future.
