No matter how well you rinse your shower doors after cleaning them with a chemical based cleaning solution, there will likely be a chemical residue left on the door. The problem with this is, the next time you treat yourself to a long, hot shower, that residue may become airborne as the steam from your shower turns it to mist. This mist will then be inhaled by you. Thankfully, it is incredibly easy to eliminate this risk and keep your shower doors looking great simply by using the all-natural cleaning method described below.
What You Will Need
- clean spray bottle
- white vinegar
- baking soda
- non-abrasive sponge or soft bristled brush
- microfiber cloth
Step 1: Prepare Your Cleaning Solution
This all-natural cleaning method will require you to prepare two separate cleaning solutions. The first cleaning solution will be a mixture of one part white vinegar and two parts warm water. This mixture should be placed inside your clean spray bottle.
Next, you will need to combine four tablespoons of baking soda with just a few drops of vinegar. Continue adding vinegar slowly and stirring the mixture until a thick paste forms.
Step 2: Deep Clean Shower Doors
Begin by wetting your entire shower door using your water and vinegar solution. Next, using your sponge or soft bristled brush, apply the baking soda mixture to the door. Using circular motions, scrub the door gently. The baking soda in your cleaning solution will work to gently buff away any soap scum, mineral deposits, or other debris on the surface of your door so there truly is no need to use too much elbow grease while scrubbing.
Once you have successfully cleaned the entire door, simply rinse away any baking soda residue from the door using your water and vinegar solution.
Step 3: Eliminate Streaks In Glass
In order to eliminate streaks and leave your glass shower doors shining, you will need to remove as much excess water as possible using a rubber squeegee. Be sure to pull the water from the top of the door and work your way down so that water does not drip into areas you have already cleaned.
After removing the bulk of the water, use a microfiber cloth to gently dry the door using circular motions. By the time the entire door is dry, you should be left with a clean, streak-free shower door, from places like Shower Doors & More, that is free of all chemical residue.
