How to clean shower doors
Posted on Tuesday September 7 2011
We offer you with ultimate solutions to keep your shower-room and shower doors as clean and sparkly as the one that just stepped out of it! You can find a host of facilities, right from those that require no effort to those that ask for just a little, all to keep your shower doors from gathering grime over time!
Since there is perpetual moisture to which shower doors are exposed, a simple idea would be to leave the door open after a shower to let in some air circulation and dilute the dampness.
If it’s a shower curtain, then regular cleaning is the order of the day. Shower doors are to be inspected for the extent of grime settling and dirt patches formed before choosing the concentration of the cleansing solution to have the desired effect!
For any crevices (at the handles or holders), where the grime accumulation is most seen, a spiked toothbrush would be the miracle cleaning tool, scraping every inch of dirt off and leaving behind sparkling, er, not teeth, crevices.
For an initial pre-cleaning, vinegar and hot water preferably in a 1:1 ratio may be used and the shower doors cleaned to destroy any bacteria (mold or mildew, common due to the presence of moisture) that might be growing on the surface.
Lemon juice or oil squirted on the doors would also be another effective cleaning option. Mineral oil can be used to wipe out any soap stains. Glass shower doors can be given that sparkly-clean look by sponging them with white vinegar.
With commercial rust removers available, stubborn rust stains (caused due to rusting handles) can be eliminated from the doors, taking cleanliness to the next level and lending a ‘new’ look to the door!
Also, harsh, abrasive chemicals (meant for porcelain or other materials) are to be avoided. They may cause a dull appearance and loss of luster in the shower doors.
Non-conventional ‘cleaners’ might save the day (er, the shower doors)! Toothpaste or spot-cleaners, when worked into a solution, melt all dirt within no time leaving your shower doors shiny!
These are some of the numerous ways to keep your shower door always clear from all kinds of dirt and grime, other than the back-breaking routine of waging war upon it once in a blue moon and then struggling with defeat.
