Cleaning your shower is one of those jobs that’s really easy to put off, but there’s no real reason to drag your heels when it comes to making your shower sparkle.

  1. Avoid cleaning glass when the bathroom is exceptionally hot: Whether the sun is shining directly onto the glass, or whether the heating is on full blast at home, heat can cause the cleaning solution to dry too quickly. This can lead to premature drying and the formation of streaks, leaving your shower doors looking dirty and streaky. Try to clean your shower doors on days when the temperature is cooler.
  2. Clean the frame and inside of the shower first: Before you start cleaning the glass, be sure to clean the frame and the inside of the shower. This will help to remove any dirt or grime that could be raised onto the glass. This is especially important if you haven't cleaned your shower for a while!
  3. Use straight, continuous lines when cleaning: Whether you’re using a cloth or a squeegee, it’s better to clean in straight, continuous lines rather than in circular motions. This will help to reduce the chances of streaks forming on your shower doors. When using a squeegee, always start at the top and work your way down, wiping the blade with a clean cloth after each pass.
  4. Use the right cleaning solution: To ensure your shower doors are cleaned properly, use a cleaning solution that is designed specifically for use on glass. These cleaning solutions will remove any dirt, grime, and soap scum without leaving any streaks or marks. You can also make a cleaning solution at home.

This will help to prevent water spots from forming and will also ensure that your shower doors are streak-free.

By following these tips, your shower doors will look cleaner and clearer, and you'll be able to enjoy a sparkling shower every day!
