A beautifully clean glass shower is something that any homeowner can take pride in. On the other hand, if your shower glass looks dirty, it can make the whole bathroom seem dirty. While many people think cleaning their shower glass is like cleaning any other surface in the bathroom, there are a few extra steps to take. Thorough shower glass cleaning requires some specific steps to ensure the glass looks as good as it possibly can. To help you keep your shower glass clean and sparkling, take a look at the DIY cleaning guide listed below.
How to Cleaning Shower Glass By Yourself ?
1. Gather Supplies
To get started, you’ll want to get the following cleaning supplies to use on your shower glass:
- Glass cleaning solution (Windex)
- White vinegar
- Baking soda
- Empty Spray Bottle
- Scrubbing Sponge
Once you have your necessary supplies together, give the shower glass a quick rinse with water to get the whole surface damp. Now we can get started on the real cleaning!
2. Shower Glass Cleaning
Now that the shower glass is all wet and ready to clean, you can prepare by pouring some of your vinegar into the empty spray bottle. Then start spraying the glass to cover it completely with vinegar. Once the glass surface is covered, you will have to wait for the vinegar to soak in. This helps to loosen any stuck on soap scum or water stains that have built up on the glass. Now you can lightly dust your sponge in some baking soda, and use it to scrub away any stuck on scum. Keep scrubbing until the glass looks completely clean, then rinse with water. To avoid new water spots, dry the shower glass with your cloth, and use a glass cleaner to remove any hard to reach dirt or scum.
3. Maintaining Clean Shower Glass
The best way to make sure your shower glass stays cleaner for longer in the future is to avoid leaving water droplets on the surface after a shower. When droplets dry, they often leave some type of stain behind, especially in places with ‘hard water’. Hard water contains traces of sediment and other solid material which is left behind when water evaporates. You can remove droplets after a shower with a squeegee. There are also plenty of water resistant compounds available from your local hardware stores which can be applied to the shower glass. If all else fails, you might consider contacting a plumber to outfit your home with a water softener. These devices help remove solid material from the water so it is less prone to leaving residue behind on your glass surfaces.
