Keeping your shower sparkling clean is important for preventing the buildup of soap scum and bacteria, but the cleaning process should involve more than just scrubbing your shower walls and floor. If you have a walk-in shower with a door, that door needs to be cleaned often—more frequently even than the rest of your shower. This is because glass shower doors are more prone to collecting soap, and the tracks of the door can also become a spot for mildew and grime to call home if not properly cleaned.
Now that we’ve covered how frequently you should be cleaning your shower doors, what is the best way to clean them? The experts at Jacuzzi Bath Remodel are here to help you answer that. Whether you have a luxurious Jacuzzi® shower or a traditional walk-in shower system, knowing how to keep the shower door clean can have a major impact on the appearance and overall hygiene of the space.
How to Clean Your Shower Door the Easy Way
When it comes to cleaning your shower door, there’s one ingredient that makes the whole process easy: vinegar. This kitchen cabinet staple has the ability to banish water stains, soap scum, and even mildew from your shower door thanks to its acidity. You can make a simple cleaning agent at home with a combination of distilled white vinegar, dish detergent, and water, and all you need to do is heat the vinegar (about one cup should do) in the microwave in a microwave-safe bowl for up to 45 seconds before adding it to a spray bottle with dish detergent. From there, simply spray the solution onto the door and let it sit for several minutes to cut through any grime before rinsing it off with water and a damp sponge before drying.
Be careful to note what your shower is made from before choosing this DIY route, though, as stone showers can be damaged by vinegar’s acidity. Alternative methods include baking soda mixed with soap as well as ammonia, which is known for leaving a streak-free shine. When in doubt, you may just want to go with a store-bought cleaner to prevent accidentally damaging your shower. If you have a Jacuzzi® shower system, you may already know that the showers and wall surrounds are made from a nonporous acrylic that is stain-resistant and easy to clean, but the glass door will still require some occasional maintenance to keep it looking like-new for years to come.
