How to Clean Your Newly Repaired Glass Shower Door

Are you wondering about how you will avoid damaging your newly repaired shower door after it has gone through emergency glass repairs? Read on and discover some of the cleaning techniques and products that will keep that glass spotlessly clean without putting it in danger of cracking during the cleaning process.

White Vinegar

Two things usually cause glass in a bathroom to become foggy or cloudy. The first is soap scum because soap usually contains some amounts of talc. That talc accumulates and causes the glass to look milky. Secondly, water contains dissolved minerals. As that water dries on the shower door, the minerals solidify and make the glass look blotchy.

White vinegar can be used to get rid of these sources of dirt on the shower door. Mix equal amounts of vinegar and clean water. Put this mixture in a spray bottle and apply it on the shower door on a regular basis, such as once a week. Wipe it off with a clean cloth.

Dishwashing Liquid and Baking Soda

Another way to deal with mineral deposits or soap scum on your shower door without the glass facing any risk of being damaged is by making a paste from a combination of dishwashing liquid and baking soda. Place this paste on the spots of glass that have stubborn deposits. Let it sit for a few minutes before you gently rub the paste in using a cloth. The deposits will be dislodged easily. You can also make this paste with water if you don't want to use dishwashing liquid.

Microfibre Cloths

You can also buy microfibre cloths from a home supplies store near you. You can then use those cloths to wipe down the glass after using the shower. The cloth will remove any water that would have caused minerals to be deposited on the glass.

Cleaning Pads

You can also use non-scratch pads to clean your shower door glass. These pads will not damage the glass in any way because they have the same non-scratch effect on the pans that you use them on.

As you can see, you need not worry that any attempt that you make to clean the shower door glass will cause that glass to be damaged. Just choose one of the cleaning products above and your glass will be safe. Alternatively, talk to the glass repair expert who repaired the glass. He or she will advise you on which additional methods you can use to keep the glass clean without exposing it to the risk of damage during the cleaning process.
