The Ultimate Guide on How To Clean Shower Glass

Is there anything better than a refreshing shower after a long, tiring, stressful day? For those five to fifteen minutes, you’re free. Safely cocooned away from the stress of your routine. So naturally, then, you’d want your shower to be as clean as a temple. I mean, why would you want your favourite place of relaxation to be dirty?

Unfortunately, given that it’s a humid place with tons of bacteria and germs, showers can get dirty very easily. Especially shower glass. It doesn’t help that it is so difficult to get rid of the stains and make it look brand new again. Except, it is isn’t…

To know how to clean shower glass, it is important to understand why shower glass gets dirty so easily in the first place. Simply put, it’s a combination of hard water and soap getting accumulated over time. This makes the shower glass look cloudy, and over time, the crystal-clear see-through glass you’d installed in your bathroom becomes a greasy, opaque eyesore 🙁 Here’s how you can easily change that:

 

  • Our Bathroom Cleaner: It is great at breaking down limescale, hard water build up and soap without all the harsh chemicals! Spray it on and use a damp sponge to wipe it, or leave it on for 5-10 minutes and then wash off, following with a dry microfibre cloth or a glass cloth.

 

  • Microfibre cloth: make a mixture of equal parts vinegar and our rhubarb washing up liquid. It’s very important to make sure you pick a non-toxic, biodegradable soap because you don’t want the solution to be too harsh. That might do more harm than good by causing damage to your shower glass. Dip your microfibre cloth in this mixture and wipe away! By the way, this method also works for bathtubs.
  • Scrubbing pad: add a dab of our Wonder Scrub & polish on a scrubbing pad – these coconut fibre scrubbing pads are a brilliant option! Scrub your shower glass in a circular motion. This should help some stubborn stains ease off and almost melt away. Then wash away all residue and wipe down with a microfibre cloth.
  • Razor scraper: if your shower glass is lined with hard deposits like limescale, try using a razor scraper. It can help a lot with solid residue that’s effectively glued onto your shower glass.
  • Credit card: not only can you use your credit card to buy the items you may need to clean shower glass, but you can also use an old credit card to scrap softer residue off! While razor scrapers are great for hard and stubborn residue, an old credit card would work just fine with softer deposits like accumulated soap. Make sure the card and shower glass is dry otherwise this method won’t be as effective. If you’re going to use this method, work the credit card as you would a squeegee.
  • Squeegee: remember to use a squeegee to scrape off any deposits after you shower. For best results, we recommend doing this after every shower, but if that isn’t feasible, try doing it every other day or so. We would recommend this squeegee from Boobalou for it’s effectiveness but also that it’s nice on the eye!
