This month’s featured reader question comes from Kathryn, who posted in the Ask Anna Facebook Group:
“How do I get my glass shower clean? I want it really clean before I try putting on Rain-X.”
How to clean glass shower doors, here’s what you need:
1. Use a Pair of Pantyhose to Clean Glass Shower Doors
If you are anything like me, then you don’t squeegee your glass shower doors nearly often enough! Water and soap scum build up and before I know it, it’s been months since I last cleaned them. Well, when I got around to cleaning them most recently, I decided I’d try out a tip I’d read on a Facebook thread a while back. It was to use a pair of panty hose to scrub away soap scum. I had an old pair and thought it was worth a shot! Initially, as you can see in the photo above, it was working decently. But as I worked my way down the shower doors, it became tougher and tougher. There was heavier build up near the bottom and the panty hose just wasn’t cutting it. Here’s a before shot of the shower doors:
And here is after scrubbing with the panty hose:
Definitely an improvement, but still not clean. This is probably not the method you want to use if you have months worth of build up, but if it’s only been a week since you’ve cleaned them it will likely work just fine. Read on to see how I got them really clean!
2. Use a Magic Eraser to Clean Glass Shower Doors
When the panty hose didn’t quite get the job done, I resorted to my tried and true Magic Eraser to finish up. Followed by a rinse and squeegeeing, this is how the shower doors turned out:
Perfectly transparent! To keep them looking good, I recommend squeegeeing after each shower. This will help tremendously! Then a quick scrub with a Magic Eraser every few weeks should keep them nice and clean.
