The Best Ways to Clean Shower DoorsFeb 01, 2022
Safe, accessible, and gorgeous are just a few ways to describe modern walk-in shower systems—especially Jacuzzi Bath Remodel showers. While Jacuzzi® showers are easier to clean by nature thanks to the nonporous, silver ion-infused acrylic they are constructed from, the question of how to clean your shower door remains. Whether you own a Jacuzzi® shower system or a traditional shower, it’s best to clean the door as often as possible to prevent to pesky hard water stains and soap scum buildup. Thankfully, there are a few easy ways to keep your shower door sparkling clean and looking as good as the day it was installed. Here’s how:
1. Keep a Squeegee Nearby
One of the best ways to clean a shower door is by preventing the accumulation of dirt and grime in the first place, and a squeegee is an excellent tool for doing just that. If you wipe down the shower door after each use, hard water deposits will be less likely to build up. By preventing this, you save you further time and effort later on and you won’t need to use chemical cleaning agents nearly as often.
2. Buy a Good Glass Cleaner (or Make Your Own)
Glass shower doors add a beautiful, elegant touch to any bathroom they’re found in—but only if they’re cleaned properly. You can pick up a shower-safe glass cleaner at the store, or create your own natural solution by either:
- Mixing pre-heated distilled white vinegar with a dish detergent in equal portions, then pouring the mixture into a spray bottle. To clean your shower door, spray both sides, let the solution stand for about half an hour so it can cut through any grime, and finally rinse it away with water and a sponge and dry the door with a soft cloth. Because Jacuzzi® showers are built with acrylic, this cleaning option is safe and effective. However, if you have a natural stone shower system, you will want to be careful or avoid this option altogether, as the vinegar could be damaging to stone.
- Cutting a lemon in half, dipping the wet end in baking soda, and rubbing it on both sides of your shower door. This should create a sort of foam that will cut through any grime and soap residue, similar to a vinegar-based solution.
Whether you opt for a traditional cleaner or a homemade version, it’s best to do a weekly wipe-down with your choice of solution and sponge.
3. Don’t Forget the Details
Remember: Your shower door itself is just one element of many when it comes to your shower. Whether your door slides open on a track or opens outward on a hinge, you’ll want to remember to keep these elements free from mold and soap scum as well for an optimal shower performance. It’s also good to do a regular (monthly, if possible) deep clean of your entire shower, though the actual amount of time you’ll need to spend cleaning it and the optimal amount of time between cleanings will depend on the kind of shower you have. Jacuzzi® shower systems, for example, typically only require a simple wipe-down with mild soap and water to maintain their good-as-new looks for years.
