About a year ago, I realized that there were a few things that I needed to do around the house to make my place feel more like a home. For starters, I knew that I needed to replace the carpet, since it was damaged from years of use. Unfortunately, I knew that I didn't have the skills to take care of things on my own, so I turned to a team of professional contractors. They were incredible to work with, and even taught me how to create a great construction environment for my team. After the project was done, I knew that I wanted to make a blog about creating a positive construction environment.
There's nothing quite like frameless shower doors for bringing the natural light into the room, and making your bathroom feel larger than it actually is. However, like any glass surface, your shower doors can get dirty. In fact, without proper care, your beautiful shower doors can end up covered in soap scum. That's the last thing you want. Luckily, soap scum doesn't need to become a part of your life. In fact, by using the simple cleaning tips provided below, you can keep your shower doors looking crystal clear.
Keep a Squeegee On Hand
It's not uncommon for water spots to develop on glass shower doors. The spots form once the water dries on the glass surface. Unfortunately, once the spots have dried onto the glass, they can be difficult to get rid of with ordinary cleaning. That's why it's important for you to remove the water before it has a chance to dry on the glass. You can stop the spots from forming, by drying the glass after each shower. All you need to do is keep a clean squeegee in the shower, and use it to remove the water from the glass. Your doors will stay clean and clear.
Give It a Thorough Cleaning with Vinegar
When frameless shower doors get dirty, they start looking dull and dingy. That doesn't mean it's time for a deep scrubbing. To remove the dinginess, you'll just need a light spritzing with vinegar. For this cleaning technique, you'll need to keep a spray bottle filled with distilled vinegar in your bathroom cabinet. After you've used the squeegee to dry your shower doors, spritz them with the vinegar. Let the vinegar sit for about 10 minutes, rinse the glass with water, and squeegee them dry again. Do this about once a week to keep your doors looking their very best.
Keep Soap Scum Away with Dryer Sheets
Soap scum can leave your shower doors looking downright scummy. That is, unless you take steps to keep the soap scum away. Luckily, you probably have the perfect solution in your laundry room. You can use ordinary dryer sheets to remove soap scum, and keep it away. About once a month, wipe your shower doors down with several dryer sheets. Rinse the doors well with clear water, and dry them with your squeegee. The dryer sheets will remove any soap scum that's present, and form a protective layer to help keep your glass clean, and scum-free.Share
