A sparkling clean shower is essential to creating a relaxing spa-like atmosphere in your bathroom. Scrubbing the tub is simple enough, but glass doors can be tough to keep clean, especially if they’ve gotten cloudy or stained. You can absolutely restore the sparkle with our guide on how to clean glass shower doors.

How Often Should You Clean Shower Glass?

The first secret to clean shower glass is consistency. Staying on a cleaning schedule prevents hard water from building up on the surface overtime. Here’s how to tackle it on a daily and weekly basis.

Daily: Squeegee your shower doors after each shower to remove water droplets. When hard water droplets are allowed to air dry, they cause calcium stains. Keep a squeegee hanging in the shower for easy access.

Weekly: Clean your shower doors weekly with one of the methods detailed below. Waiting too long in between cleaning will allow hard water buildup to accumulate and make it much more difficult to remove.

As-Needed: About once a month, apply a water-repellent like Rain-X to your glass shower doors. Rain-X causes water to bead and slide off the glass, preventing hard water and soap scum stains.
