Squeaky Clean: Methods to Keep Your Bathroom Spotlessly Clean
Glass shower doors are fun to look at - but they can be tricky to clean, especially if you just had them installed. You’ll quickly find out that the glass door will gradually accumulate unsightly mineral deposits, grime, and moisture. To keep your glass doors clean, you will need access to the right materials. After all, even the most skilled carpenter is only as good as their equipment.
Let’s take a look at how you can keep your bathroom glass doors spotlessly clean.
Getting Rid of Soap
Soap and water have a nasty habit of clinging to surfaces, especially glass doors. The good news is that you can use various solutions to deal with the soap problem. You could also go down the DIY route by making your own solution. Some people prefer to make a solution of water and ammonia to get rid of the soap solution.
You can find less toxic solutions such as mixing dish soap and white vinegar or making a paste using baking soda and water. Both options will get rid of the soap water mix in no time.
Getting Rid of Hard Water Stains
Those hard water stains can be very stubborn to get rid of, especially if they’ve been allowed to sit there for a while.
The traditional distilled white vinegar solution will struggle to do a good job here. What you'll need is a stronger cleaning agent. The good news is that the right tool may be within reach - in your kitchen. All you have to do is cut a lemon in half and dip it in salt. Use the solution to clear away those unsightly hard water stains.
Pro tip: Regularly spray your glass doors with lemon juice to prevent future stains with hard water. You can also apply a hydrophobic coating to keep water spots away from the glass door.

How to Clean Glass Shower Door Tracks
The prospect of cleaning shower door tracks may appear to be intimidating at first, but with the right tools, you keep them clean in no time.
You will need about 2 cups of white distilled vinegar, 10 cotton balls, and a cleaning cloth (microfiber).
First, you’ll need to plug the drain holes with cotton balls before pouring the distilled vinegar in the track. Wait five minutes for the vinegar to work its magic. Now use an old toothbrush to clear out any debris. You can then use the microfiber cloth to dry the track.
