As anyone will tell you, the bathroom, and more specifically the shower is the most-used area in any home. Because it is used so often, it can be difficult to keep up with it and keep it clean. The area of the bathroom that is especially prone to getting dirty and requiring regular cleaning is the glass shower doors. Shower doors seem to attract more dirt, grime, and soap scum than any other area of the bathroom; so how do you combat the filth and keep your glass shower door sparkling clean? Here are a few tips to help keep your bathroom shower looking clean and brand new, year after year.
What causes a dirty shower door?
There are many different factors that contribute to a dirty shower door, including the high level of humidity that is often found in the bathroom. After a shower, the water droplets that are left behind, dry on the glass, leaving a film behind on the door’s surface. This film can be exacerbated by the use of bar soap or body wash, as these products tend to leave behind a residue on the glass.
Another factor that can contribute to dirt and grime accumulating on the glass is the type of water that you have in your area. If you have hard water or water with high mineral content, it can result in limescale or film building up on the glass as well. The film that is visibly left behind, can be hard to remove and will often require special cleaning solutions and/or scrubbing to remove.
