How I Clean Glass Shower Doors

How to Clean Glass Shower Doors

People are coming over to your house in less than an hour. Your house is immaculate, except for one thing, the glass on your shower doors. What can you do? Ban your guests from using the bathroom? That may work, but you’re bound to have some very uncomfortable people by the end of the night. Of course, there’s no need for drastic measures like that, there are four items already in your bathroom that can help you get your shine on.

Liquid Soap

Soap works to get your hands clean, so why shouldn’t it work on shower glass? Simply take a washcloth and put a few pumps of liquid soap on there and put under hot water. Work up a foamy lather and scrub down both sides of the glass. Once you’ve got the doors lathered up, get a new wash cloth and wet it down and wipe away the suds. Let the doors air dry and then smile at how clean and germ free your shower doors are.

Bar Soap

Bar soap is very similar to liquid soap, however, there’s only need for one washcloth. Wet the washcloth down and wipe both sides of the doors. Now, take your bar of soap (not your fancy guest soap of course, that stuff is expensive!) and in a circular pattern, scrub each door. Once you’ve got a good layer of soap on each side, take the wet washcloth and wipe away all the soap. Just like before, let the doors air dry and don’t forget to make sure that no one uses that particular bar of soap.

Body Wash

If you have an extra loofah sitting around, pour a nickel-sized amount of body wash on it, otherwise use a washcloth again. Work the body wash into a good lather and scrub down the doors just as you would your own body. Loofahs are especially great for this method because of their roughness which will get all that extra soap scum off the door with minimal effort.

Air Freshener

It’s a bathroom essential and a great way to put shine back in your glass. Simply spray a healthy dose of air freshener on the glass and wipe it off the same you would with other store bought glass cleaners. Not only is this the simplest method, but it will also make your bathroom smell great. Which is always a plus when it comes to bathrooms.

So there you go, four quick methods to cleaning your glass shower doors. At least now you’ll have no excuse for trying to quarantine your bathroom. Your future guests will be thankful for that!
