Glass Shower Door Cleaning Tip:

Dirty shower doors have the same effect on an otherwise clean bathroom as a mirror, it makes the bathroom look filthy. Here is how we suggest you clean your shower doors:

  1. Make sure the shower glass is wet, either by spraying or splashing it with water.
  2. Spray the glass with white vinegar and let it stand for 10 minutes.
  3. Grab a sponge and dip it in baking soda. Start scrubbing the glass.
  4. Once the glass looks clean you can rinse it off with water.
  5. Finish off by drying the glass with a microfiber cloth.

Skitterblink Tip – The easiest way to clean your shower is to keep it clean on a daily basis which is why we recommend you keep a squeegee in your shower. If you use the squeegee to wipe down the shower after each shower you can prevent water from drying on the glass and therefore leaving watermarks.
