Over time, your glass shower doors can become discolored or clogged with soap scum and hard etching deposits. They not only look grotty but can also be a potential health hazard if they harbour mildew and mold. It may seem like your only option is to undergo expensive renovations, but fortunately there are many simple methods you can use to bring back the beauty of your discoloured glass shower doors.
Does Vaseline help car scratches?
A quick spray of white vinegar on a dry, squeegeed surface will remove hard water deposits and leave your glass shower doors shining like new. You can also add a few drops of essential oil to the solution for a more fragrant bathroom cleaner. Click here
For particularly stubborn stains, or if your glass is etched, a mild abrasive such as baking soda can help break up and dissolve the buildup. Mix some baking soda and tap water into a runny paste and scrub away the residue using a cleaning rag or sponge. Rinse and dry as you go to prevent re-stinting.
Alternatively, there are commercial shower sprays available that you can apply to your glass daily (following the instructions on the bottle). These prevent soap scum and water stains by creating a protective barrier on the surface of your shower.
Rust stains are often caused by a combination of abrasion and the corrosion of metals, so you’ll need a product designed for this type of staining. Several natural products can effectively remove rust stains from your glass, including household items such as baking soda and lemon juice. If you’re looking for a quicker, more efficient option, there are also specialised scum removers that you can spray on and wipe off in three minutes – no scrubbing required!
