Keep Your Bathroom Ventilated
Because the design of a frameless glass shower door is naturally more simple than traditional shower enclosures, there are fewer nooks and crannies in which mold can develop. However, there is no way to avoid the buildup of mold and mildew in the shower area if your bathroom is poorly ventilated. Make sure that steam is able to adequately vent from your bathroom by opening a window during or after your showers. Another option for keeping the bathroom mold and mildew free is to have an exhaust fan installed; you’ll just want to work with your contractor to ensure that it’s the proper size for your bathroom.
Squeegee Every Day
One of the simplest ways to keep your shower door spotless is to squeegee at the end of every shower. While it might seem like a lot of work to do initially, running the squeegee over the glass generally only takes a few seconds and can prevent soap scum and water droplet stain buildup immediately. Keep a squeegee hanging in your shower and turn it into a habit to simply wipe down the wet side of your glass shower enclosure after every shower. This makes it easier to clean your glass shower doors from week to week, and also ensures it always looks spotless day to day.
Wiping down your frameless glass shower enclosure with cleaning spray every week or two is the best way to keep them spotless. Windex is a popular and time-tested choice to keep glass clean and streak free. There are a number of other commercial shower and glass cleaners that you can use, along with more natural treatments like vinegar or baking soda. Talk to your glass shower enclosure provider to learn which shower cleaner is the safest and most effective for your glass shower enclosure.
Try a Magic Eraser
No, it’s not a new magical item of stationary. A magic eraser is a special type of sponge that has a unique fine consistency to gently buff away soap scum and dirt buildup. Magic erasers need no chemicals or cleaning solution to work, and are very effective at lifting soap scum and even mineral buildup. Magic erasers are perfect for less frequent cleaning jobs or for your occasional deep cleans. Because magic erasers require a bit of scrubbing and effort, they aren’t the easiest solution. But for the result you get, they are well worth the work you put in.
